Single or dual trip angle settings are factory set and can be arranged in a single axis to indicate caution before final alarm. These trip settings are available in both Normally Open (turn something on/out of range condition warning) and Normally Closed (turn something off/in range or safe condition) outputs.
The SlopeAlert tilt indicator was designed for off-road, in-motion vehicles and equipment that operate in high vibration/shock, rough terrain environments. Two of the most common applications for this warning device are:
- to help prevent vehicle or equipment rollover on steep slopes
- to aid track vehicles that need protection for over rotation while in motion, especially in rough terrain.
Even though the SlopeAlert System was designed for monitoring vehicle inclination in off-road, rough terrain environments, it is well suited for any application where inclination needs to be limited. Other industrial applications include lawn mower rollover warning, irrigation controllers, construction equipment shut-off valve controllers, lift and dump vehicles, and earth moving equipment.
