Tilt switches “make” when the electrode is tilted below horizontal and
“break” when tilted above the horizontal. Total travel from “make” to
“break” is the “Maximum included angle” shown below. The
component to which the switch is attached must have a total tilt angle
greater than the “Maximum included angle” for proper operation.
