Mercury-Free And Micro Tip-Over Tilt Switches From The Best Tilt Switch Supplier

Tilt switches are switches that respond to an angle of tilt in a device, piece of equipment, or other objects. Once a device is tilted beyond a preset angle a contact is made, which can then be made to trigger a specific response.

These switches can be made to be normally open or normally closed depending on the application requirements. They can be used to initiate an action or a shutdown based on the requirements of a piece of machinery or system.

Some of the most common commercial applications of tilt switches are in tip-over protective mechanisms. If an appliance such as a clothes iron or space heater is knocked over or disturbed in a similar manner, a tilt switch will trigger a safety shutoff to prevent fire hazards and other dangers. This is why they are frequently referred to as tip-over tilt switches.

Tilt Switches Manufactured To Your Specifications

Select Controls has extensive experience designing, manufacturing, and modifying tilt switches for many different industries. We regularly provide micro, adjustable angle, unidirectional and planar tilt switches that are customized for a range of different applications and functions. 

All tilt switches we make are adjustable based on specific angles or parameters that are meant to trigger a response. We can produce unidirectional or multi-axis tilt switches, which will trigger at a predetermined angle across a 360-plane.

All switches we manufacture are mercury-free. Instead of using mercury to respond to a specific tilt angle, mercury-free tilt switches use a small ball to detect a shift in angle, which then opens or closes a contact. These roller ball tilt switches ensure that any switch you source from us is fully compliant with common industrial safety standards.

Sourcing And Customizing The Tilt Switches You Require

When you’re ready to get a quote or source tilt switches, tell us about your application, performance requirements, and end goals for your product or system. We’ll then help you identify the best possible option.

If you already have a tilt switch design that requires modifications or improvements, tell us how you’d like to enhance it and we’ll go over all the possibilities. Our experienced team can efficiently manufacture switches that are custom catered to your performance requirements.

If you just need a prompt answer on price, quantity, and lead time, complete the quick quote form or call us directly. We’ll provide a detailed response and answers to your questions.

Serving Many Industries With Military-Quality Switches

We started as a military-grade switch manufacturer but we have served many non-defense industries for decades. What does this mean if you’re seeking a non-mil-spec switch? It means that your switches are made from rugged, top-grade materials regardless of their end applications.

All of the materials we use in our products are designed to meet with the toughest demands. If your application will be subjected to especially harsh or any unusual conditions, we can still provide you with a solution that will perform without fail.

Frequently Asked Question About Our Tilt Switch Manufacturing Capabilities

What kind of angles can be achieved in a tilt switch?

A 360-degree tilt switch, in a vertical position, will respond to any shift in position across whatever angle you specify, ranging from 5 to 45 degrees.

Can you provide adjustable angle tilt switches?

Yes. While a single direction tilt switch will only respond when tilted in a single direction, it can be made to respond at virtually any preset angle, depending upon how the switch is mounted.   

Why should I choose Select Controls when I need tilt switches?

It’s true that tilt switches can be easily purchased from mass-producers and commercial tilt switch suppliers, but if you’re looking for the ability to customize, if you need high-quality switches made from superior materials, and when you want mechanical tilt switches and other components that are designed by an experienced engineering team, Select Controls can meet your needs. We’re dedicated to providing our customers with excellent service and results.
