Cost-effective, MEMS-based single-axis and dual-axis tilt sensor modules with internal signal conditioning, environmental packaging, and analog or digital output options.
NEW! The MTLT Family of tilt and inclination sensors provide either accurate pitch and roll information over a range of 0 ± 90° or, for a single axis of rotation, a range of 0 ±180°. They offer a convenient RS-232 interface and built in programmable tilt alarm feature ideal for tilt safety applications. The MTLT1xxS modules are designed for static inclination applications, such as platform leveling or solar array monitoring. The MTLT1xxD are gyro compensated inclinometers designed to be used in dynamic inclination applications such as on moving vehicle. The MTLT1 series are packaged in an IP67 rated plastic enclosure and operate from an unregulated 9 to 32 V supply.
The CXTA and CXTLA series offer an easy-to-use signal conditioned 0-5V analog output. The CXTA provides a wide measurement range of ±75 degrees, while the high-resolution CXTLA offers higher accuracy over a ±20 degrees measurement range. The zero-angle voltage and sensitivity are stable over the lifetime of the device. The CXTA/CXTLA modules operate from unregulated power supply inputs of 6 to 30 VDC and are available with a plastic or high-temperature metal housing.

MEMSIC offers magnetic sensor components for high performance OEM applications, as well as rugged magnetic modules for applications where a turnkey solution is required. MEMSIC magnetometers are used in millions of cell phones and tablets, due to their exceptional noise, wide dynamic range, and low power consumption.
MEMSIC’s family of magnetometer components are available in both dual-axis and three-axis versions. They are based on anisotropic magnetoresistive (AMR) Permalloy technology sensors, which have superior accuracy and response time characteristics, while consuming significantly less power than alternative technologies. The MEMSIC magnetometers are ideal for electronic compass, GPS navigation and magnetic field detection applications.
