Garbage truckDIS Inclination sensors can withstand harsh environments mounted on garbage trucks, effectively replacing mechanical limit switches.

DIS Sensors QG40N series inclination sensors and tilt switches are designed to withstand the high shock and vibration present in applications on garbage collections trucks. This application also presents environmental challenges.

The following key characteristics make DIS Sensors ideal for this demanding type of application:

  • Up to 10,000 g of shock
  • 360° rotation
  • Programmable limits, hysteresis and filtering
  • Zero reset
  • IP67 sealed and fully potted
  • -40°C to +60°C operation
  • Analog, Canbus outputs available on inclination sensors
  • Discreet PNP or NPN limits available on tilt switches

Replacing proximity sensors and micro switches with DIS tilt switches provides the ability to electronically set limits without the need to mechanically adjust proximity sensors.
