Tiltmeter Dips Into Shallow Waters

The 820 Shallow Water Series electrolytic tiltmeter line is groomed for geophysical and geotechnical applications. A waterproof tilt solution, the components provide a cost-effective and practical alternative to tiltmeters rated for extreme depths. The series is rated to 50 meters in depth and uses electrolytic technology to measure in one or two axes with a resolution to 0.0001° and virtually no long-term drift. Standard measuring ranges include ±0.5°, ±3°, and ±50° with custom ranges available upon request. Analog, current and digital (RS232 and RS422) output options are also available. For more details, datasheets are available for the A820, C820, and D820.
