Electrolytic Tilt Sensor

An Electrolytic tilt sensor is a resistive fluid-based inclinometer that provides a voltage output whose value is directly proportional to the tilt angle of the sensor with reference to gravity. An electrolytic tilt sensor generally determines the tilt angle by measuring the resistance of the fluid between multiple electrodes in the sensor. The sensor is usually small, miniature in design and can be mounted onto a PCB for OEM applications. The sensor output is connected to a high impedance op-amp which is connected to the microcontroller’s internal ADC or analog to digital converter.
