Overview

The 4-Directional Tilt Sensor uses an optical system to provide positional feedback in four directions. This type of sensor is commonly used in many smart phones and digital cameras as a cheaper means to adjust the screen display when the device is rotated.

Key Features:

  • Positional feedback in four directions
  • Easy communication with any microcontroller
  • Small 6-pin package for breadboard-friendly applications

Application Ideas:

  • Rotating display adjustment
  • Robotic movement
  • Tilt-sensing for remote controls
  • Alarm systems

Note: Maximum output signal voltage approaches power supply voltage, so use the same voltage level for microcontroller and sensor supply.

Details

  • Voltage requirements: 3 to 5.5 VDC
  • Communication: 2-pin high/low output for four sensor states
  • Dimensions: 0.42 x 0.32 x 0.49 in (1.07 x 0.81 x 1.24 cm)
  • Operating temp range: 32 to 122 °F (0 to 50 °C)
