T500 Electrolytic Tiltmeter

T500 Electrolytic Tiltmeter

The T500 tiltmeter is an electrolytic fluid-based tilt sensor that can be used for precision rotation measurements, generally over a short period of time. These units connect directly to our Structural Testing System, Structural Monitoring Systems, and are also compatible with most generic data acquisition systems. The rugged aluminum housings provide both easy mounting and mechanical zero-adjustment capability.
