Additional information – HMTS6CFG0

Hummingbird Electronics’ dual-axis current output tilt-sensor measures pitch and roll angles with high accuracy by measuring movement relative to the earth’s unchanging gravitational with a 3-axis accelerometer.

The accelerometer is calibrated for use over a -90 to 90 degree angle over a -40 to 85 degree Celsius temperature range. It is accurate to 0.1 degrees for up to 30 degrees of tilt in any axis.

Parameters associated with the sensor such as the current scale and what range of angles it represents can be configured by the user. Further enhancements such as modification of the damping factor (how much averaging is performed) and calibration can be changed through a built-in serial interface.

Manual calibration can be performed by pressing an internal push-button inside the device can is provided. Calibration should not be used to correct for angles outside of 5 degrees.

The configurable tilt-switches are supplied in a rugged aluminium enclosure that is splash proof. Provision for screw mounting when required is provided.

Power to the unit and outputs are provided through colour coded wires.
