Submersible Tilt Sensors

Positek - Leaders in Position Sensors and Submersible Tilt Sensors

Manufactured from marine grade stainless steel, our tilt sensor technology is ideal for underwater applications


While our subsea sensors can withstand long-term submersion at depths of up to 3500m, they are also well suited for use in any other harsh environment where equipment is likely to be exposed to water or non-corrosive liquid. 

With the use of our patented, contactless technology, our inclinometer sensor technology is extremely robust, operating without interference or depreciation in all applications. Over the years, our tilt sensors have been used in AUV autonomous underwater vehicles and on submarines. Whether you’re looking for a marine sensor, ship inclinometer, or any other kind of waterproof inclinometer sensor, we have several standard and custom options available to suit.

In Focus: The Incredible Features of a Submersible Sensor

Amongst the different types of sensor, a submersible sensor is probably the most resilient. It is specially designed to function and withstand the extreme pressure underwater. It also has the potential to last for many years if properly used and maintained. It is made from fine-grade stainless steel that is capable of enduring the conditions under the sea. Whether the sensor is exposed to deep waters or on air, a submersible position sensor can be expected to deliver durability with outstanding and accurate measurements.

To what depth can linear sensors be expected to work?

A submersible sensor is built to work in deep waters. Don’t let the size fool you because despite of its compact size, it boasts accurate data on the slant that it measures. A linear position sensor is sufficiently durable enough to tolerate pressure of depths up to 3,500m, however, some can endure deeper waters and still give high precision measurements.

What type of environments will a submersible linear sensor be suitable for?

A submersible sensor can be capable of withstanding deep sea conditions with pressure up to 5,000 psi. They are built to endure any kind of temperature, even the harshest. It can bear any level of humidity depending on the build of the sensor. It can still function properly in an event that it encounters high levels of shock and vibration. Overall, a linear potentiometer can be adapted to whatever type of environment it will be utilised for, regardless of the conditions being too hazardous or calm.

Where can you find submersible linear sensors being used?

As mentioned above, a submersible lvdt can withstand even the most harsh environments. While a submersible sensor is commonly used in applications submerged in relatively clean water, this device can also be found being utilised in lift stations, underwater oil mining, wet wells, holding tanks, refineries, filling equipment, and distillations. Its common applications also include water measurement in vessels, reservoirs, pits, and channels.

Sensors are now a crucial part of most types of machinery or equipment, in various applications, whether it is for vehicles, gadgets, and even massive machinery such as underwater vessels and ships. Every area of industry would definitely benefit from utilising this powerful device.

If our standard submersible tilt sensor or inclinometer measurements are outside of your specification, please contact a member of our engineering team to discuss your requirements. Your custom tilt position sensor will then be designed at no extra cost, assembled at our onsite production facility, and shipped out to you as soon as possible. In some cases, this process can take as little as 1-2 working days.
