I have a circuit that Im going to use as a bike alarm. The problem is that I will need a tilt switch which acts like a push-to-break switch ....is it possible to get a switch like that? ...or are there any alternatives???please reply...
is the ball bearing switch a momentary one?NoTime said:The simplest switch I have seen is a ball bearing in a shallow metal dish with a second conductive ring around it. The depth of the dish sets the maximum allowable tilt.
in the case of a parked bike there would probably be enough tilt to trigger it while movement would cause the ball to break contact with the ring.
You could make one or perhaps an auto parts store.
You could also use an XY accelerometer IC. These are sensitive to orientation.
Try google for sources of various commercial switches.
What do you mean by momentary?Gughanath said:is the ball bearing switch a momentary one?
