The CDL Micro Tilt is a tiny, dynamic, pitch and roll sensor for use in a huge variety of applications. Measuring only 55mm x 37mm x 26mm OEM (matchbox size) the unit can provide highly dynamic pitch and roll readings at a frequency up to 50Hz.
Its tiny size is made possible by utilizing MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) sensors. MEMS is the integration of mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronics on a common silicon substrate through the utilization of microfabrication technology.
At an output rate of 50Hz the sensor returns an accuracy better than 0.5 degrees over the range of+/- 30 degrees. A range of oversampling settings allows the selection of output rates down to 1Hz, where the accuracy is better than 0.2 degrees.
Internal DIP switches allow the selection of various options within the device.
A surface version and two subsea versions (3,000m and 6,000m) are available. The unit can also be supplied as an OEM part for inclusion in your equipment.
