  • History Lesson: Importance of the Inclinometer for Flight
    Orville and Wilbur Wright may have never found success if not for the inclinometer. Their original aircraft designs were missing a critical piece of innovation that was being used by foresters and other industry pioneers. This simple device is known as an inclinometer (or slip indicator). The 1902
  • Inclinometers for Solar Tracking Systems
    The use of an inclinometer is the only way to guarantee long-term accuracy of your solar tracking system because this gravity sensing device will reliably output an absolute angular reading.
  • The Basics of Electrolytic Tiltmeters
    The words tiltmeter, inclinometer and clinometer all refer to an inertially referenced device that measures angular rotation with respect to a vertical gravity vector, the most stable of all external references. At Jewell Instruments we denote our highest precision instruments as tiltmeters. We use
  • Accuracy vs. Resolution
    The often confusing but important difference with inclinometer sensor output is whether accuracy is the same as resolution. In mechanical testing and measurement, it is often important to understand how an object reacts to various forces. An inclinometer is commonly used to measure tilt
  • Tilting at satellites
    the antenna with the appropriate satellite. Combined with digital electronics, full ESD and EMI protection, and an aluminum housing, the entire assembly is encased in an epoxy-based potting compound for environmental protection. The Spectrotilt RS-232 electronic inclinometer features an accuracy of +-0.3
  • Mobile monitor rides the rails to track defects
    Rail passengers in Europe get a more comfortable ride, thanks to a computer-powered track-monitoring system. The RailSurf sled carries eddy-current sensors in the middle of each of its bars that ride the tracks. An inclinometer sits on the horizontal bar perpendicular to the rails, as does a wire
