What are the two different types of operating principles for inclination sensors?

Comparison of operating principle for inclination sensor.

The two different operating principle for inclination sensor are:

1) Fluid based measuring cell   

2) MEMS ( Micro electro mechanical system)


Features of Fluid based inclination sensor:

  • High accuracy
  • Small temperature drift
  • Extended temperature range
  • Rugged metal housing
  • Large measuring range
  • High end BSI are based on Fluid based principle


Features of MEMS based inclination sensor:

  • Less influence of vibration
  • 2 axis measurement needs only one MEMS chip.
  • Low cost , Suitable for mobile applications
