Mercury-Free Tilt Sensor

May 27, 2008
The Ramsey mercury-free tilt sensor incorporates advanced probes and controls that are designed to provide enhanced stability, sensitivity, and performance. Developed to address environmental concerns and meet government regulations, these units are easy to install. They are available with various probe assemblies that make them suited to applications that use an array of materials in a wide range of production and process environments in the power, aggregate, paper, coal mining and processing, and mineral mining and processing industries. Featuring a simple design that is easy to understand and use, the sensor is actuated when material causes the probe to tilt at an angle of 15° or more from its vertical position. The internal sensor has a 360° design and is precisely positioned so that, regardless of the direction of tilt, its normally closed contacts will open at 15°. A hanger assembly is provided with every probe to allow the probe to be placed in the optimum position for each individual process.
