Technical data / Short description

Depending on the angle, a switch connects the circuit.

Pinout

Code example Arduino

This example will light up a LED as soon as the tilt module is in the right angle.

The modules KY-011, KY-016 or KY-029 can be used as LED.

int Led = 13 ;// Declaration of the LED output pin
int Sensor = 10; // Declaration of the sensor input pin
int val; // temporary variable
  
void setup ()
{
  pinMode (Led, OUTPUT) ; // Initialization output pin
  pinMode (Sensor, INPUT) ; // Initialization sensor pin
}
  
void loop ()
{
  val = digitalRead (Sensor) ; // The active signal at the sensor will be read
  
  if (val == HIGH) // If a signal was noticed, the LED will be on.
  {
    digitalWrite (Led, LOW);
  }
  else
  {
    digitalWrite (Led, HIGH);
  }
}

Connections Arduino:

LED + = [Pin 13]
LED - = [Pin GND]
Sensor Signal = [Pin 10]
Sensor +V = [Pin 5V]
Sensor - = [Pin GND]

Code example Raspberry Pi

# Needed modules will be imported.
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
import time
  
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
  
# The input pin of the Sensor will be declared. Additional to that the pullup resistor will be activated
GPIO_PIN = 24
GPIO.setup(GPIO_PIN, GPIO.IN)
  
print "Sensor-test [press ctrl+c to end]"
  
# This output function will be started at signal detection
def outFunction(null):
        print("Signal detected")
  
# The output function will be activated after a signal was detected ( falling signal edge ).
GPIO.add_event_detect(GPIO_PIN, GPIO.FALLING, callback=outFunction, bouncetime=100) 
  
# main program loop 
try:
        while True:
                time.sleep(1)
  
# Scavenging work after the end of the program
except KeyboardInterrupt:
        GPIO.cleanup()

Connections Raspberry Pi:

Signal = GPIO24 [Pin 18]
+V = 3,3V [Pin 1]
GND = GND [Pin 6]
