2e Sensor
RobusT - precise - reliable

Our fluidic capacitive 360° inclination sensors determine the orientation angle of an object in relation to the Earth’s gravitational field. 2E develops and manufactures different versions for demanding measurement tasks. Customized solutions are also possible. Nowadays our inclination sensors are successfully used in a wide range of applications such as construction machinery, solar trackers and measuring instruments. Discover more about how they function as well as the advantages compared to other measuring principles and, with the aid of our evaluation kit, learn about the benefits of the inclination sensor, also for your application. With 3D MID technology 2E offers a further possibility for creating smarter sensor systems. The LDS (laser direct structuring) process makes it possible to produce three-dimensional, injection-moulded circuit carriers and allows for the integration of mechanical, electronic, thermal, fluidic and optical functions in virtually any shape of component. The advantages this can bring result in an increased level of miniaturisation, the implementation of new functions and applications as well as the shortening of the process chain.

OperaTing principle

construction machinery

The operating principle of the fluidic 360° inclination sensor, developed and patented in different versions by 2E, is based on the change In capacity of the differential capacity configuration, depending on the degree of inclination.
