In the horizontal position the DC output is zero. Portable MEMS Tilt Meters require the tilt meter to be placed in a reproducible position on a reference plate attached to the surface being monitored. The portable tilt meter system has a demountable sensor and is designed for applications where a large number of measuring points are to be observed.
Portable MEMS Tilt Meter systems consist of the tilt meter, interconnecting cable, stainless steel tilt plates, and the readout instrument. Tilt plates are bolted or bonded to the structure to accurately, and repeatedly, locate the sensor.
