The CA-550 tilt detector detects movement of the car in two axes (x and y). No mechanical parts are used in the detector. Detection is achieved through electronic acceleration metering.
The digital analysis used in this detector ensures high resistance against the false alarms. When the alarm is armed (power supply connected) the reference position of the detector is stored in the memory after which the position of the detector is continuously checked, compared and updated. If the tilt of the car is changed by more than 1°, the detector will be triggered.
