Abstract : This invention relates generally to a transducer and specifically to a transducer which provides means for detecting and recording inclinations and accelerations. A sealed vessel contains a displaceable mass and a fluid having an electrical resistance different from that of the displaceable mass. The vessel has mounted therein a plurality of electrodes arranged so that a deviation in the position or movement of the device creates an unbalanced condition in an electrical circuit.
