Tilt Sensors and Switches
   Form Factor      You can think of products as belonging to general categories based on what they are designed to do and what you have to do to use them. The 'category' criteria attempts to distinguish 'unpacked' sensors that might be used as part of a larger sensor from, say, a gauge which can be read just by looking at it.
   Your choices are...         
   Integrated Chip (IC)       Denotes a "raw" device such as a thermocouple, or one with no packaging. 
   Module / Standalone       A more complex device with packaging and/or signal conditioning that is powered and provides an output such as DC volts, 4-20mA, etc. (e.g., a pressure sensor with 4-20mA output). 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Tilt Switch       Tilt Switches are electric switches in which an electrical circuit is made by mercury or other device flowing into a gap when the device tilts to a pre-specified angle. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.

Performance
   Tilt Angle       The range of desired linear output. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
           
   Allowable Sensor Over-Range       Overrange specification limits the range of matching products to the specified range multiplied by a selected overrange factor. This keeps returned matches close to the range requirement and filters out products with a wider range than needed. "From", "To", and "Overrange" must all be specified to activate this option.

Example: User specifies a sensor with a range from 0-100. Without overrange specification, sensors with ranges of 0-100, 0-1000, and -10,000 to +10,000 are returned as matches. An overrange specification of 50% will filter out any sensors with a full scale range greater than 150. 

   Search Logic:      Matching products will have a range within the specified overrange limit.
   Number of Axes       Number of axis the device can measure. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Accuracy       Number of degrees the device is accurate within. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Supply Voltage       Voltage required to power device. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Operating Temperature       The temperature range over which the device must operate. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the limits in a "From - To" range; when both are specified, matching products will cover entire range. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Type
           
   Your choices are...         
   MEMS       Micro-Electro-Mechanical Sensor that senses degree of angle change. 
   Capacitive       Half filled with dielectric liquid. In these devices as the angle increases the dielectric liquid comes in more contact with a vertically orientated etched plate. With more or less contact with the etched plate the capacitance changes. This capacitance signal is then converted into an output signal to indicate the degree of angle. 
   Electrolytic       Resistance Potentiometers that have an output signal proportional to the tilt angle. 
   Pendulum       Pendulum or weight in conjunction with a rotary sensor. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Output
          The type of electrical signal that will be produced.
   Your choices are...         
   Analog       Output voltage is a simple (usually linear) function of the measurement. 
   Digital       The output signal is encoded via amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM), or some other modulation scheme, but the signal is still analog in nature. 
   Other       Any digital output other than the standard serial or parallel signals. Simple TTL logic signals are an example. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
