Catch sensor: Sense tilt angle (inclination), vibration (oscillation), and motion

Photo : Catch sensor

Sensor which catches signal generated from angle of tilt (inclination), vibration (oscillation), and motion (static/stationary or movement) of object.

[Applied applications]
  • Anti-theft --- Automatic selling machines, arcade games, safe-boxes
  • Security --- Motorbikes / Anti-theft systems for cars
  • Back light --- Watches
  • Driving assist --- Electric bicycles
[Expected applications]
  • Endoscopy --- Help for early identification of the affected area
  • IC tag --- Key-less entry
  • Crime prevention --- GPS location tool
  • Remote control --- Engine start
  • Construction sites --- Prevent drop accident

Product Outline

The "Catch" sensor comprises a ball made by conductive material and placed inside a case: the sensor output signal acts ON/OFF according to the movement of the ball. Both the ball and the case are plated by gold to avoid corrosion and to obtain conductive properties. Moreover, the spherical shape of the ball allows the sensor to be sensible, able to detect even extremely small stresses and provide a reliable ON/OFF output.
It's small size enables to mount sensor on printed board, thus no cabling is necessary.

It is the tilt and vibration-sensor "Catch" which has all the above-mentioned features. We are open to customer-specific develop and manufacture to meet requirement of customization.
