Tilt Switch is also known as Angle Sensor, Angle Switch, Tilt Sensor, Tip-Over Switch or Anti-Dumping Switch.Angle options of Tilt Switch: 15°, 20°, 30°, 45°, 65°. Tilt Switch provides a simple ON/OFF signal when the application tilts to a certain angle according to each tilt switch. Once the signal changed, the trigger function of your design will be executed automatically.
There are a variety of applications for Tilt Switch, e.g. Automatic power-off for smart home appliances like heaters or irons, screen rotation for monitors, anti-theft system, auto-awake system for power-saving, etc. Any kind of application which needs tilt detection is suitable.
