Italian term or phrase: dislivellamento
Dear folks,
Would anyone know a good translation of "dislivellamento" in the context of aerial work platforms?
I am translating a manual about a work platform which is used for repairing walls of buildings.

Here are a few instances in which the term occurs:

"La macchina in configurazione bicolonna è dotata di un dispositivo di controllo del dislivellamento
della campata centrale del piano di lavoro orizzontale, compresa tra i due gruppi di sollevamento"
"Test del sistema di controllo del dislivellamento sia in discesa che in salita"
"Il sistema di livellamento automatico entrerà in funzione appena verrà
raggiunto un dislivellamento massimo di 3 gradi"

I think "tilt" might be a possible translation but I couldn't be sure.
Any suggestions most welcome!
