The Tilt Switch is a versatile, low-cost indicator for a wide variety of applications. Use it to detect high levels of large, heavy materials in tanks, bins and silos. Or install it as a plug detector in chutes. It’s equally suited as a load sensor when positioned over conveyor belts or open piles. It can be used for materials with a density of 15 lbs/cu.ft. and greater and suitable for grain, sand, gravel, concrete, aggregate, coal, and other materials.



The design offers you reliable operation with only one moving part. When tilted 15°, the large steel ball inside shifts position, actuating a micro switch. It has an economical high level point detection with a lightweight, yet rugged, construction and is easy to install. Sensitivity of the device may be increased with optional accessory paddles. The Tilt Switch is also available with a sphere attachment.
