  • General

    I see that inclination sensors, acceleration sensors and tilt switches have the same family name (QG) in the product code. Why is that?

    Technically, all these sensors are made with acceleration chips that measure g-forces (gravitational forces), hence the 'G’ in the name. The gravitational force of the earth is a special form of g-force. 

    An inclination sensor measures the angle with respect to the horizon in which the imaginary line from the center of the earth serves as a reference. The tilt switch uses this line to switch when a certain angle is reached and the acceleration sensor measures g-forces such as the gravitational force in the direction in which the sensor is sensitive (1, 2, or 3 axes).


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.
