PORTABLE TILT METER

DESCRIPTION

The RST Portable MEMS Tilt Meter utilizes a MEMS tilt meter to measure tilt in either one or two axial planes perpendicular the surface of the base plate. Depending on the model, the output is an analog DC signal or digital output and is directly proportional to the sine of angle of tilt. In the horizontal position the DC output is zero. Portable MEMS Tilt Meters require placing the tilt meter in a reproducible position on a reference plate attached to the surface being monitored. It is designed for applications where a large number of measuring points are to be observed.

Portable MEMS Tilt Meter systems consist of the tilt meter, interconnecting cable, stainless steel tiltplates, and the readout instrument. Tilt plates are bolted or bonded to the structure to accurately, and repeatedly, locate the sensor. When not in use, the plates should be shielded from damage with an optional, UHMW plastic protective cover. Readout is achieved with the Portable Tilt Meter Readout, or with the Ultra-Rugged Field PC2 for the Digital Tilt Meter model.

APPLICATIONS

Monitor tilt of retaining and building walls.


Tilt of concrete dams.


Landslide monitoring.


Ground subsidence.


Building safety along adjacent excavations.


Applications where the failure mode is expected to have a rotational component.


Differential compression in earth dams and embankments.


Observation of benches and berms in open pit mines.


Bridge piers.

QUICK SPECS

Uniaxial or biaxial sensors available.


Horizontal or vertical applications.


Readout units and portable sensors are lightweight and easy to use.


Data logger compatible.


High accuracy and repeatability.


Operational range and temperature coefficients exceed that of bubble sensor devices.

Range of ±15° (other ranges upon request).


Resolution (digital) of ±2 arc sec. (±0.0006°) (0.01 mm/m).


Resolution (analog) of ±5 arc sec. (±0.025 mm/m) (10Hz BW) (or better, readout method dependent).


Non-linearity (digital) of ±0.0125% F.S. (±0.002°) (0.03 mm/m).


Non-linearity (analog) of ±0.05% F.S. (±0.0075°, 0.13 mm/m).


Repeatability (digital)of ±0.0125% F.S. (±0.002°) (0.03 mm/m).


Repeatability (analog) of ±0.025% F.S. (±0.004°, 0.06 mm/m).
