  • No moving parts
  • High resolution ±0.07°
  • Absolute measurement
  • Measuring ranges ±10°, ±20°, ±30° and ±60°
  • Less than 6.5mA supply current
  • Crush-proof mounting flange
  • Rugged construction, sealed to IP68

TheSTT280 uses solid-state, 3D-MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology to measure the sensor's inclination relative to earth's gravity. The STT280 has a choice of measurement ranges from ±10°, ±20°, ±30° and ±60° and provides a 0.5 to 4.5Vdc output signal over this range, with a nominal 2.5Vdc at 0° tilt.  By using this technology, the STT280 provides distinct advantages in reliability, stability and compactness over fluid based, electrolytic and pendulum operated sensors.

The STT280 can operate from a 5Vdc regulated or 8-30Vdc unregulated supply.
