Tilt Table

</dt>
A device used to calibrate linear accelerometers with rated ranges of, or below, +/- 1.0 g. It allows the accelerometer to be positioned at different angles in reference to a surface perpendicular to the direction of the earth's gravity, so that the applied values of acceleration are equal to the cosine of the angle between the reference surface and the direction of the earth's gravity. </dd>
