DIS inclination Sensors measure slope or inclination relative to gravity.

Our sensors are based on MEMS accelerometers and address position, slope, and level measurement challenges.

DIS currently offers several versions of inclinometers. Within each version, several part numbers exist. DIS offers an online configurator to assist with part number selection.
