Would like to see an inclinometer breakout board

I have a need to be able to have my project make itself level (i.e. Not tilted). From my research it looks like an inclinometer sensor is the type of device that would meet this need. Looking at the types of sensors available, the SCA100T series from Murata Electronics North America looks very promising. Of course, I'd be willing to use any similar type of device too. However, I don't see a breakout board available from Sparkfun for any type of inclinometer.

I did find on Amazon a breakout board for this sensor, but it's from a manufacturer that I've never heard of before. So I'm a bit wary of it.

Any ordinary accelerometer makes a fine inclinometer. For best accuracy you need to calibrate it, by following this tutorial: https://thecavepearlproject.org/2015/05 ... r-arduino/

Google "accelerometer tilt measurements" for the basic theory and simple code.
