The Tilt Scout is a wireless, solid state inclinometer and measures an angle from horizontal. You have the option to measure with two modes: Hatch detection and Pump Jack detection. The Hatch detection mode enables monitoring of the opening condition (closed, cracked open, opened) of a hatch for environmental/safety concerns. The Pump Jack detection mode detects and reports if it is operating or moving. Where there is a need to detect an angle from horizontal, the Tilt Scout can be applied.
A 3 Axis Accelerometer constantly monitors the angle and reports it’s status. When there is a change of state, the 3 Axis Accelerometer will report it.
The Tilt Scout can be described as rugged and designed for outdoor environments. It also features a long battery life (greater than 5 years) and has up to a 1/2 miles range.
