CATEGORY > Inclinometers + Tilt Sensors

SUBMERSIBLE TILT METER

DESCRIPTION

The RST Submersible Tiltmeter provides precision real-time remote monitoring of tilt of submerged structures. It consists of a MEMS inclinometer sensor and electronics mounted inside a rugged waterproof enclosure.

The instrument housing is machined from solid stainless steel, providing extreme endurance for long-term high-pressure underwater service. The cable entry is a submarine grade connector, which provides watertight performance at depths exceeding 200 meters.

The tiltmeter can be mounted directly on horizontal, vertical or inclined surfaces. In all three situations, no precision levelling of the instrument is required as the wide measurement range of the MEMS tilt sensor (+/- 15°) allows for latitude in installation. Repeatability and other metrological specifications of the tilt sensor are unchanged at the center or at the ends of the measurement range.

APPLICATIONS

Remote, real-time monitoring of inclination of concrete-face rockfill dam slabs and concrete dams.


Monitor tilt of retaining walls, piles, and bridge piers.


Monitoring of offshore structures.


Installation of submerged pipelines.

QUICK SPECS

Solid construction for extreme endurance over long-term, high-pressure underwater situations.


Instrument can be mounted on inclined, vertical, or horizontal surfaces with no need of precision levelling.


Analog and digital output also available.


High accuracy and repeatability.


Built-in transient protection.


Watertight performance.


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).


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).


Sensor: MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) Accelerometer, Uniaxial or Biaxial.

BENEFITS

Increase Productivity


High Accuracy


High Reliability
