RT Series SlopeAlert Tilt Switches
Rieker RT Series SlopeAlert Tilt Switches 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.
Rieker 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.
Trip settings are factory set based on customer specification, with trip points indicating side to side and front to back or two points along the same axis. For example first trip at 10º would be the “caution getting close” alert, the second trip at 15º would be the “danger possible roll-over condition” alert).
Connected to a lamp, horn, or solenoid relay, this compact single or dual axis unit can indicate both safe and unsafe conditions as well as provide a control signal to help prevent equipment over rotation.
