KY-020 Tilt Sensor

20.00 EGP

KY-020 can detect when it is tilted. The sensor contains a small metal ball that will complete a circuit depending on where it is in the sensor. Because the sensor is very basic, it can only detect large changes in its tilt, and cannot measure the angle of its tilt.

KY-020 operates as a very simple switch that gets activated upon tilting the module board.

KY-020 Connecting

  • KY-020 Pin – = GND, connect to GND of the Arduino
  • KY-020 Pin (middel pin) +5 v, connect to Arduino +5
  • KY-020 Pin S signal, connect to Arduino pin 3

KY-020 Code

int Led = 13 ;// define LED Interface
int buttonpin = 3; // define the tilt switch sensor interfaces
int val ;// define numeric variables val
void setup ()
  pinMode (Led, OUTPUT) ;// define LED as output interface
    pinMode (buttonpin, INPUT) ;//define the output interface tilt switch sensor
void loop ()
  val = digitalRead (buttonpin) ;// digital interface will be assigned a value of 3 to read val
    if (val == HIGH) //When the tilt sensor detects a signal when the switch, LED flashes
    digitalWrite (Led, HIGH);
    digitalWrite (Led, LOW);
