STT280

STT280 
Sealed Tilt Sensor

The new STT280 sealed tilt sensor is designed to provide reliable, fit-and-forget tilt measurement sensing within an extremely compact housing, for the most arduous operating environments. The STT280 is suitable for use in applications such as road construction equipment, cranes and booms, scissor lifts, agricultural vehicles, container handling and hydraulic lift systems.

The STT280 uses solid state 3D-MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology to measure the sensor's inclination relative to earth's gravity. The STT280 has a choice of measurement ranges from ±10°, ±20°, ±30° and ±60° and provides a 0.5 to 4.5Vdc output signal over this range, with a nominal 2.5Vdc at 0° tilt.  By using this technology, the STT280 provides distinct advantages in reliability, stability and compactness over fluid based, electrolytic and pendulum operated sensors.

Key Features
• No moving parts
• High resolution ±0.07°
• Absolute measurement
• Measuring ranges ±10°, ±20°, ±30° and ±60°
• Less than 6.5mA supply current
•Crush-proof mounting flange
• Rugged construction, sealed to IP68
