TS8000 ±2 g Inclinometer

The TS8002 is a single-axis cost-effective ±2 g MEMS capacitive Accelerometer/ inclinometer based on a bulk micro-machined silicon element specifically designed for good performances tilt measurement in rugged environments.

With a proven reliable and hermetic sealed package, TS8002 will cover a large range of industrial, energy and military tilt applications.

With nearly one million sensors shipped over the past 25 years, our technologies deliver field-proven, long-term reliability and performance for your most demanding applications.

All Colibrys products are designed and manufactured in Switzerland and are individually tested and qualified to Colibrys standards.

MS8000/TS8000 Evaluation Board (EVBA) is a device designed to evaluate a full performance of Colibrys TS8000 accelerometer by a simple connection to a power supply and a voltmeter. EVBA design implies a possibility to be mounted to various evaluation environments – the shaker, the tumble table and the oven.

EVBA includes all the components for immediate functioning :
– Soldered MEMS accelerometer with 3 decoupling capacitors
– 2 Connectors (heading & mating)
