Portable Tilt Meter
The RST Portable MEMS Tiltmeter utilizes a MEMS tiltmeter to measure tilt in either one or two axial planes perpendicular the surface of the base plate.
The RST Portable MEMS Tiltmeter utilizes a MEMS tiltmeter to measure tilt in either one or two axial planes perpendicular the surface of the base plate. The output is a digital output and is directly proportional to the sine of angle of tilt. In the horizontal position the DC output is zero. Portable MEMS Tiltmeters require placing the tiltmeter in a reproducible position on a reference plate attached to the surface being monitored. It is designed for applications where a large number of measuring points are to be observed.

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
