The tilt sensor module come with the basic components for operation. Supplying power and it is good to be use. Attach it to object and it will detect whether the object is tilted. Simple usage as it is 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 ball rolling type, NOT Mercury type.

Comes with a M3 mounting hole for ease of attaching it to any object. On board it provide a tilt switch, high sensitivity and commonly being used for tilt detection. The module comes with power LED and status LED for 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 degree to 130 degree. However it depends on the angular velocity too. It can be use as vibration sensor too.

It can be interface with any microcontroller with digital input such as PIC, SK40C, SK28A, SKds40A, Arduino series for tilt detection capability. Also, not to forget, interface with Relay module offer tilt switch :)

Features:
  • Operating voltage: 3.3 to 5VDC
  • Ball Rolling type of tilt sensor.
  • PIN: VCC = 5V, GND = 0V, DO = digital output from module
  • AO is not use in this module.

* If the DO is not working, you might need to turn the on board potentiometer to center.

Can I have the specifications of this sensor? ( Afiq, 27/09/2017 )
Hi. You may refer to the SN-TILT-MOD Getting Started Guide at the attachment tab for its specification.

Sens1 = analogRead(Sens1Pin); //read the value from the sensor Sens1 = (5.0 * Sens1 * 100.0)/1024.0; //convert the analog data to digital SHOCK = ((390 - Sens1)/390)*100; for calculation SHOCK , why the value is 390? 390 stand for what ? the angle? sens1 = the value that sensor read is vibration right? ( BELLA, 10/10/2016 )

Hi,

Simple usage as it is 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.

If you have further question, you can ask at our technical forum, as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)

how to calculate the input of vibration sensor ? Sens1 = analogRead(Sens1Pin); //read the value from the sensor Sens1 = (5.0 * Sens1 * 100.0)/1024.0; //convert the analog data to digital SHOCK = ((390 - Sens1)/390)*100; is this correct ? can u explain more about this calculation?

Hi,what is the structure of the tilt sensor?Thanks. ( Yong, 14/08/2016 )

Hi, 

This is the ball-rolling type structure.

For further inquiry, kindly visit our technical forum as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks.smiley

hello, i want to ask, can the output of the module AO directly connect to led or relay as my output? tq ( M. QAYYUM, 13/02/2016 )

Hi, it stated that "AO is not use in this module." .You can use DO to connect to LED or Relay as output. For further inquiry, kindly visit our technical forum as this session is only for short inquiry. Thanks. :)
