Variohm Eurosensor has introduced the IS-120 single-axis tilt alert switch for use where in-range and out-of-range inclination or level position need to be safety monitored.

The switch — with SPST (Form A) action — is designed for vertical-axis installation, operating a contact closure at less than -10º, with contact release at less than 10º.

Aimed at heavy-duty applications, the fully sealed IS-120 has an IP65 rating and is built to withstand the high levels of shock and vibration that may be found in off-road automotive or heavy industrial equipment. However, according to Variohm Eurosensor, the low-cost switch is equally suited to lighter-duty use.

Existing applications include safe level position monitoring for truck bonnets, robot arms and storage vessel closures, where its mercury-free construction ensures contamination-safe installation.

Key specifications

  • The IS-120 operates from a 48VDC supply with a 0.5A-rated switching current.
  • The compact unit measures approximately 42 x 15 x 28mm with simple two-hole mounting and lead-wire connection.
  • The IS-120’s operating temperature range is -40ºC to +125ºC.
