Inclinometers & Tiltmeters

Inclinometers measure the angle or position of an object in relation to earth's gravity and are well-known for their high reliability and accuracy.

Inclinometers & Tilt Meters: Precise, Durable, Customizable

Inclinometers precisely measure an object’s angle or tilt. Inclinometers are called inclination sensors or tilt meters. Our portfolio includes the right system for any application – whether it’s amplification electronics, limit monitoring, or tilt angle visualization – and it all comes in rugged industrial EMV casings. We also offer solutions for mobile applications – digital spirit levels with 360° measurement range and display, available with magnetic bases for even greater ease of installation.

We are happy to help you select the most suitable inclinometer or measurement solution. Fill in our contact form or contact us directly: you can find the phone numbers and e-mail addresses of your nearest location on our locations page

Product Overview Inclinometers, Tiltmeters & Displays

What are inclinometers? 

Inclinometers identify an object’s angle. Unlike accelerometers, which are based on similar technology, inclinometers measure a change in angle or position relative to the earth’s gravity. They are often used for static leveling measurements. There are several basic measurement principles, which are suited for different measurement tasks:

  • High-precision servo-inclinometers or cost-efficient capacitive MEMS Inclinometers
  • Single-axis systems for tilt measurement in ATEX areas or pitch & roll measurement systems;
  • Submersible offshore inclinometers or portable digital spirit levels.

Together, we will identify the right solution for your application! You can also benefit from our broad selection of turnkey measurement systems for special applications:

We also offer a broad selection of custom solutions for tilt and inclination measurements in specific applications. Contact us and let us know what you need!
