Tilt switches | DIS sensors

A tilt switch is a type of switch that switches at a certain angle as compared to the horizon (similar to the old mercury switch). It is in fact an inclinometer with a switching output. Since gravity serves as a reference maximum mounting freedom is achieved.
Tilt switch - DIS Sensors
The tilt switches from DIS Sensors are based on MEMS technology and intelligent microcontroller algorithms. As a result, single or twin axis switches can be implemented with any desired switching angle. The output can be NPN or PNP. A SIL1 / PLc tilt switch for safety applications completes the portfolio. An optional configurator is available to configure the switch (angles, delay times, filtering).

Types of tilt switches

DIS tilt switches are available with the following general specifications:

range 1 axis: up to ±170°
range 2 axes: up to ±80°
output: single or dual NPN/PNP
level of protection: IP67, IP68 or IP69K
programmable: switching angle, on/off delays, filtering
housing: robust small plastic housing with fully potted electronics

With the QG40N configurator you can program the tilt switches to any angle. Take a look at our family overview for clear overview of the types of tilt switches we have to offer.

The product selector can help you to decide which type of tilt switch is best suited to your specific needs. If you can't find the sensor you are looking for, please contact your local distributor. Other useful documents for QG sensors, like manuals and EDS files can be found under downloads.

Key Features of the DIS Sensors Tilt Switch:

  • ±170° Measurement Range: Our tilt switch offers an extensive measurement range, providing the flexibility needed for diverse crane applications.

  • Zero-Point Setting: With a zero-point setting, the tilt switch enables precise programming of any required angle, ensuring tailored solutions for your specific needs.

  • Digital Equivalent of a Spirit Level: Our tilt switch embodies the digital equivalent of a spirit level, offering unparalleled accuracy in angle monitoring.

  • Custom Configuration: Beyond the switching angle, users can configure delay times and filter options either ex-factory or on-site, providing a customizable solution tailored to your operational requirements.

  • Functional Safety: Elevate safety with optional SIL1/PLc tilt switches, meeting the highest functional safety standards for peace of mind in critical applications.

  • Redundancy for Greater Safety: For applications demanding an extra layer of safety, our tilt switches support redundant configurations, enhancing reliability and reducing the risk of failure.

DIS Sensors - Revolutionizing Crane Boom Angle Monitoring!

In the dynamic world of crane operations, precision and safety are paramount. Our DIS tilt switch, exemplified by the QG40N, stands at the forefront of innovation, ensuring optimal performance in crane boom max. angle monitoring applications.

Crane booms, especially those on truck-mounted cranes, face inherent movement restrictions dictated by mechanical design and hydraulic system limitations. To address this challenge, our tilt switch is strategically mounted on each segment of the boom. This intelligent device serves as a vigilant guardian, indicating when the maximum angle is approaching or reached.

When the DIS tilt switch detects the critical angle, it seamlessly switches the output, sending a signal to the crane control unit. This proactive communication allows the control unit to take swift action, preventing potential malfunctions, instability, or hazardous situations.
