The Tilt Scout is a wireless solid state inclinometer that measures an angle from horizontal with two modes: Hatch detection and Pump Jack detection. The Hatch detection mode enables “hatch watchdog” monitoring of the opening condition (closed, cracked open, opened) of a hatch for environmental and safety concerns, as well as protecting owners from theft. The Pump Jack detection mode detects and reports if a pump jack is operating or motionless. The Tilt Scout can also be applied to a variety of other applications where there’s a need to detect an angle from horizontal.
