Model 6160

The Model 6160 MEMS Tilt Sensors are designed for attachment to structures, on either a vertical or horizontal surface, and for the subsequent measurement of any tilting that may occur. The sensor itself is a MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) sensor, which offers a high range, with high sensitivity and accuracy. The included associated signal conditioning yields an output of ±4 V at ±15° and is designed to drive long cables without degradation. (Also see the Model 8003 (LC-3) Series MEMS Dataloggers.)
