DIS Tilt Switches detect slope or inclination relative to gravity and are set to trigger outputs at limits outside a safe operating zone. Our sensors are based on MEMS accelerometers and address position, and level measurement challenges.

Laser-View Technologies, Inc. is the North American distributor for DIS. Our office here in Pennsylvania supports USA, Canada, and Mexico with product inventory and technical expertise.

DIS currently offers multiple versions of tilt switches. DIS offers an online configurator to assist with part number selection.
