Do your friends consistently cheat in pinball? Now you can be sure that your friends will never cheat you in a game of pinball again by creating an alarm using this tilt sensor, buzzer, and LED module. This tilt sensor is a small capsule with a little metal ball inside. The ball rolls around in the capsule and if it is tilted, it will close or open the circuit. The sensor outputs a simple digital signal, logical zero or one, depending on which direction the capsule is tilted.

If you need to determine the exact angle of inclination and orientation, don't forget to add the three-axis accelerometer to your project.

This module from the Troyka Module series can be neatly placed on the front panel of your device, fastened with М3 screws.


Connect via the 3-pin jumper cable to receive a signal from the module. The 3-pin jumper cable needed for the connection is included in the kit.

There are several different ways to wire this module:

Troyka Shield. The most straightforward method. Connect the module to a pin group on Troyka Shield with the 3-pin jumper cable and you’re ready to interface with it from your Arduino.

Troyka Slot Shield. The best choice for quick prototyping. Using slots on the shield, you can get rid of cables. The module will be held securely in place using both pin headers.

Breadboard. For advanced use. Troyka pin headers have 0.1” spacing which is compatible with any breadboard. Simply wire the module like you would do with any IC.
