How do Tilt Sensors work?


Inductive Sensors

Positek offers an extensive range of inductive sensors. These are suitable for a wide range of applications as an ideal non-contact solution in many industries.


The Difference Between a Sensor and a Transducer

The words ‘sensor’ and ‘transducer’ are often used interchangeably although they are different devices with different characteristics.

What is a Linear Transducer?

A Linear Transducer is a type of position sensor which is used to measure movement in a linear fashion.


Position Sensing Technology

Different types of position sensors use different position sensing technologies. The type of technology used will usually be determined by the requirements of the application as well as the environment the position sensor will be used in.


Custom Sensors from Positek

As well as our standard range of position sensors, we are also able to customise products and make them fit customer requirements exactly. This means that there is never a reason to compromise.


What is an Inclinometer?

An inclinometer, also known as a tilt sensor, is a device used for the measurement of the slope or angle of an object with reference to gravity.


What is Linear Displacement?

Linear Displacement is often a movement which requires measurement and can be measured in either inches or millimetres using linear position sensors.


Intrinsically Safe Positek Position Sensors for Dust Environments

Dust environments is hazardous to sensors and may cause potential explosions. Intrinsically safe position sensors manufactured by Positek are suitable for harsh environments including exposure to dust and other combustible elements.
