Rieker tilt indicating instruments are
utilized to provide a visual or audible alert to warn operators of steep
slopes and can be configured
to disable (or shut-off) equipment in the event of rollover - especially useful
for off-road construction equipment.
These can be used in any industry where a tilt warning is needed or required to
provide a safer condition.
tilt switches vary from an economical approach if you are only
looking for a simple tip over warning (or
"on/off" switch) as with the SlopeAlert, to a constant feedback / visual
readout of slope angle with the versatile,
semi-custom RDI Series of Digital Inclinometers. Manufactured tough for
off-road abuse and extreme weather, all models
offer easy to identify alert characteristics. Click on the photos above
