The Vectory Sensor Systems Microrad is a rugged, versatile, very high accuracy tilt sensor / inclinometer, ideal for any kind of application where reliable, accurate tilt measurements are needed.

The Microrad consists of 3 high accuracy state-of-the art low-noise MEMS accelerometers. These are used to measure the apparent gravity to output values of pitch, roll and inclination.

The Microrad has a full 360-degree range in both roll and pitch giving the user full freedom in how to install the tilt sensor. There is no limitation as to how the sensor should be mounted, which removes many installation issues. Setting the installation angles is easily accomplished through the Microrad configuration program, which gives a visual representation of how the tilt sensor is supposed to be installed.

A variety of industry-standard output strings are available from the tilt sensor, such as CDL MiniTilt, TSS1, as well as a proprietary string outputting all values of interest from the Microrad. Custom strings are also available on request.

Originally designed for offshore piling operations and construction, the Microrad tilt sensor has been built from the ground up with ruggedness in mind. These sensors will stand up to the harshest conditions without breaking. The accuracy of the Microrad sensors have been proven not to be influenced by shocks of at least 20G 11ms half sine and 75G 5ms half sine.
