Tilt switches are used to detect changes in angle and position. Whether needed for standard or high-demand applications, this domestic manufacturer makes the sourcing process fast and easy.
Switch and sensor technology has been essential to the advanced automated systems that are now found everywhere. By responding to a variety of forces, they make it possible to trigger actions, collect data, and perform other functions. Their capacity to do so depends on their materials, design, and the overall quality of their manufacture. Tilt switches, which respond to change in angle and position, are no exception.
Not to be confused with a tilt trim switch used on outboard motors, tilt switches are used in anti-rollover and safety systems, security devices, simulation and training equipment, and emergency shutdown mechanisms, among many others. These devices will respond when they are tilted or tipped past a preset angle.
While they are used in many standard capacities, sometimes more specialized, high-performance devices are needed. This applies to many tilt switches used in military, aerospace, heavy manufacturing, and industrial applications. In such cases, the expertise and capabilities of a tilt switch manufacturer will deliver the best results.
