4-Direction Tilt Sensor

The 4-Directional Tilt Sensor is a perfect accelerometer replacement in those applications which may not need precise angular feedback.

This type of sensor is commonly used in many smart phones and digital cameras as a cheaper means to adjust the screen display when the device is rotated. Click over to the KickStart page to learn how to use the sensor with BASIC Stamp HomeWork board, Propeller BOE and QuickStart, and Arduino.


  • Small 6-pin DIP packaging with breadboard-friendly 0.1" pin spacing
  • Easy communication with any microcontroller
  • Positional feedback in four directions

Application Ideas

  • Rotating display adjustment
  • Robotic movement
  • Tilt sensing for remote controls
  • Alarm systems

Key Specifications

  • Power requirements: 3 to 5.5 VDC
  • Communication: 2-pin high/low output for four sensor states
  • Dimensions: 0.42 x 0.32 x 0.49 in (1.07 x 0.81 x 1.24 cm)
  • Operating temp range: 32 to 122 °F (0 to 50 °C)
Note: Maximum output singal voltage approaches power supply voltage, so use the same voltage level for microcontroller and sensor supply.
