Mechanical Inclinometers are precision instruments for measuring angles of slope and inclination of an object with respect to its gravity by creating an artificial horizon. It is also known as a tilt sensor, tilt indicator, slope meter, slope gauge, gradient meter, gradiometer, level gauge & level meter. An inclinometer is commonly used in different industries like Aviation, civil engineering, Government, Marine, Military, and Transportation for platform leveling, load balancing, boom angle indication, and slope angle measurement. The tilt angle range is the range of desired linear output measured in degrees. Important specifications to consider when searching for tilt sensors and inclinometers are the tilt angle range and number of axes.
Rieker manufactures mechanical inclinometers using precision glass or polycarbonate tube and ball construction with engraved, silk screened, or printed markings. Certain models are available with customer specified color warning zones. All our tubes are filled with a special damping fluid that controls the movement of the ball. The fluid combined with large, clear number and degree markings make it easy to get quick, accurate readings under a wide variety of severe environmental conditions. With a wide operating temperature range, UV resistance, and extreme shock and vibration resistance, these inclinometers are perfect for use in extreme environments.
For night-time operation, our Rieker mechanical inclinometers are available in a backlit configurations as well. If you need a customized mechanical inclinometer, or custom specified color warning zones please give us a call and one of our engineers will be happy to help.
