The tilt sensor module comes with the basic components for operation. Supplying power and it is good to be used. Attach it to object and it will detect whether the object is tilted. Simple usage as it is a digital output, so you will know the object is tilted or not by reading the output. It uses SW-460D or SW-520D tilt sensor. The tilt sensor is a ball rolling type.
It comes with an M3 mounting hole for ease of attaching it to any object. It provides a tilt switch, high sensitivity and commonly being used for tilt detection. The module comes with a power LED and a status LED for a visual indicator.
The module will output logic LOW when the module is not tilted until the threshold angle; it will output logic HIGH when it is tilted over the threshold angle. We have tested, the tilt angle is quite big, from 45 degrees to 130 degrees. However, it depends on the angular velocity too. It can be used as a vibration sensor too.
The output can be directly connected with the MCU, through the microcontroller to detect level, thereby detecting the environment change of angle. It can be interfaced with any microcontroller with digital input such as PIC, Arduino series for tilt detection capability.
