Selection Guide

  • Use the TiltWatch XTR to monitor where you want to know if the container or product has been tilted on its side (monitors when tilted over 80 deg)
  • Two TiltWatch XTR’s mounted on adjacent sides may be required if you wish to monitor tilting on all planes (i.e left to right and front to back) based on the type of container/product that you are monitoring. If there is no prospect of tilting in one direction then you would only require one TiltWatch XTR on the shipment.
