Dual Axis Mechanical Tilt Sensor
Available from Radio Frequency Systems
The RFS AISG 2.0 compliant, dual axis RFS Mechanical Tilt Sensor is a simple-to-install in-line device that accurately measures the position of antennas in real-time without physically having to check the placement on site.
RFS’ MTS performs calibrated angle measurement with respect to gravity, reading 0 degrees when the device is vertical. Any deflection from a vertical position will result in increasing angle values. MTS is expertly engineered to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions and prevents water intrusion, making it ideal for providing reliable data even under the most severe environmental conditions. Digital filtering ensures stable measurements and prevents false alarms caused by antenna vibrations and its +/- .5 degree of accuracy improves RF optimization.As more and more carriers are upgrading their sites to be LTE-compatible and the fact that antenna positioning is critical to wireless performance, now is the ideal time to add a tilt sensor – which is as easy to install as standard cable – at the antenna site. The tilt sensor has the ability to be installed into a live system and be recognized by the system without requiring the system to be shut down or rebooted.
