ELECTRONIC CLINOMETER

The Cline Labs, Inc. electronic clinometer is a high performance yet low cost angle measurement sensor.   It combines proven technology with state-of-the-art electronics and the result is reliable operation and low power consumption.  The CMOS electronics convert the sensor's inherently linear resistance changes into easy to interpret analog or ratiometric outputs.  The clinometer is compact, rugged and lightweight and is easy to integrate mechanically.  This highly accurate device, with no moving parts, will give designers new freedom both technically and economically.
