  • No moving parts
  • High resolution ±0.07°
  • Absolute measurement
  • Measuring ranges ±10°, ±20°, ±30° and ±60° 
  • Less than 6.5mA supply current
  • Marine-grade, cast-aluminum housing with 88mm dia. flange
  • Rugged construction, sealed to IP69K
  • Choice of cable outputs

The STT500 uses solid-state, 3D-MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology to measure the sensor's inclination relative to earth's gravity. The STT500 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 STT500 provides distinct advantages in reliability, stability and compactness over fluid based, electrolytic and pendulum operated sensors.

The STT500 can operate from a 5Vdc regulated or 8-30Vdc unregulated supply.
