RFS Announces Dual Axis Mechanical Tilt Sensor

-  Performs Calibrated Angle Measurement to Remotely
   Detect Shifting in Antenna Placement

Meriden, CT (United States), August 8, 2013 – Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), the global  wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, today announced the availability of an AISG 2.0 compliant, dual axis RFS Mechanical Tilt Sensor (MTS). The simple-to-install in-line device enables RFS customers to accurately measure the position of its antennas in real-time without physically having to check the placement on site.

Dual Axis RFS Mechanical Tilt Sensor (MTS) - RF CafeRFS' MTS performs calibrated angle measurement with respect to gravity, reading 0 degrees when the device is vertical. Any deflection from a vertical position will result in increasing angle values. MTS is expertly engineered to withstand extreme temperatures and weather conditions and prevents water intrusion, making it ideal for providing reliable data even under the most severe environmental conditions. Digital filtering ensures stable measurements and prevents false alarms caused by antenna vibrations and its +/- .5 degree of accuracy improves RF optimization. The tilt sensor has the ability to be installed into a live system and be recognized by the system without requiring the system to be shut down or rebooted. 
“Antenna positioning is obviously critical to wireless performance and it has typically been necessary for wireless carriers to physically send a representative to check the placement of antennas, particularly in the aftermath of extreme weather occurrences,” said Tom Nowik, product manager, Radio Frequency Systems. “Obviously this process is inconvenient, requires an investment of someone’s time and resources, and can result in a delay in accurately detecting if antennas have shifted. RFS’ Mechanical Tilt Sensor is the first to market of its kind and enables the entire process to be conducted remotely in real-time. As more and more carriers are upgrading their sites to be LTE-compatible, now is the ideal time to add a tilt sensor – which is as easy to install as a standard cable - at the antenna site.”

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
