SCL3300 Series 3-Axis Inclinometer

Based on Murata's proven 3D-MEMS sensing technology, the SCL3300-D01 is a 3-axis (XYZ) inclinometer with four user-selectable measurement modes which can be used to optimize the sensor's performance for different applications and their requirements. The highly integrated device includes a mixed signal ASIC for signal processing, along with a flexible digital interface that removes the need for an external ADC, reducing size, power use, and design complexity. The SCL3300-D01 features sophisticated tilt angle conversion inside the sensor which enables simple and robust application software and reduces required engineering work. Robust sensor design and advanced self-diagnostics features ensure that the output from the device can be relied on at all times.

The SCL3300-D01 inclinometer provides a ±90° tilt angle output which simplifies measuring software and device usage. The device operates from -40°C to +125°C with a typical offset temperature drift less than ±10 mg across the entire operating temperature range. The ultra-low noise density is as low as 0.001°/√Hz for high measurement resolution.

The SCL3300-D01 operates from a single 3.3 V supply and is ideal for battery-powered operation in remote locations, including IoT-based applications, due to a typical sleep mode current draw of just 3 μA.

Housed in a 12-pin pre-molded plastic housing (8.6 mm x 7.6 mm x 3.3 mm) that guarantees reliable operation over the product's lifetime, the inclinometer is suitable for SMD mounting and is compatible with the RoHS and ELV directives.
