    Gyroscopes - (66 companies)
    Traditional gyroscopes work on the basis that a spinning object that is tilted perpendicularly to the direction of the spin will have a precession. The precession keeps the device oriented in a vertical direction so the angle relative to the reference...

...contacts. The usual technique has a metal ball either making or breaking a connection between two metal conductors when the switch tilts. The ball generally rolls off the case and onto the contacts to make the connection. A viscous dielectric fluid sealed in the case is specified so ball movement mimics...
