DIGITAL BUS VERTICAL IN-PLACE INCLINOMETER SYSTEM

DESCRIPTION

Digital Bus Vertical In-Place MEMS Inclinometer Systems are designed to measure lateral movement of soil and rock or deflection of man made structures such as piles or retaining walls, when remote and continuous monitoring is required.

These inclinometers consist of one or more MEMS inclinometer sensors housed inside a 31.75 mm (1.25 in.) diameter, water-tight, stainless steel enclosure. Each sensor is separated from the next by stainless steel rods and wheel assemblies; however, the entire system is connected by a digital bus system which consists of one single cable running the length of the entire chain of connected sensors; this eliminates the need of a separate cable for each sensor and reduces the amount of cable to be managed. Rod lengths can be varied to alter the bay length and sensors can be concentrated in areas of expected movement. An optional analog cable system is also available.

Wheel assemblies are sized to fit 70 mm (2.75 in.) or 85 mm (3.34 in.) O.D. inclinometer casing. As movement occurs and the inclinometer casing deforms, each sensor can be automatically monitored and can be read at a remote readout location. If necessary, an alarm can be triggered when movement reaches a preset critical rate or magnitude.

APPLICATIONS

IDEAL FOR MONITORING OF:

Stability adjacent to excavations or underground workings.


Deflection of piles, piers, abutments, or retaining walls.


Dams and embankments.


Landslides.

QUICK SPECS

Provides constant remote monitoring; early warning of movements is essential for protecting life and equipment.


Water-tight, stainless steel enclosure.


On board electronics.


High precision, wheeled probe.


Easy adaptability to data logging.


Individual sensor monitoring.


Optional alarm.

BENEFITS

Increase Safety


Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability


Technical Support


Custom Options


Cost Effective per Sensor Point
