Wireless Tilt Sensor Carries Class 1, Division 1 Approval

Said to be an industry first, SignalFire Wireless Telemetry’s Tilt Scout wireless tilt sensor and inclinometer is Class 1, Division 1 approved for operation in hazardous environments.   The latest member of the Scout family of Class 1, Division 1 integrated sensor nodes, the Tilt Scout combines an intrinsically safe wireless inclinometer with a 900-MHz radio and antenna and an internal battery pack within a NEMA4X enclosure.  The three-axis sensor detects the change in angle (movement) of an asset such as tank hatch position as part of a SignalFire Wireless Telemetry System.  Designed for use in outdoor industrial applications, the Tilt Scout is also suitable for monitoring pump jack motion.

 

Other members of the Scout family include the Pressure Scout that serves as a low-cost alternative to conduit, wired, and other pressure sensor solutions and the Float Scout that offers a complete wireless tank level monitoring solution in oil fields. For additional information,  take a look at the Tilt Scout datasheet, Pressure Scout datasheet, and the Float Scout datasheet.
