TILT BEAM

DESCRIPTION

MEMS Tilt Beams measure differential movements in structures and consist of a MEMS sensor mounted on a rigid, fibreglass beam. The beam is mounted on anchor bolts set into the structure. They can be installed on any structure by joining together lengths of beams and are extremely accurate in generating movement profiles over long distances. Readings are taken with a manual readout by connecting at the end of the single cable linking all the bussed beams, or with a data logger at a remote monitoring station. Site specific, near-real time monitoring software is available.

APPLICATIONS

Monitoring the effects of tunnelling and excavating on nearby buildings and other structures.


Monitoring the movement of tunnel walls and railway tracks.


Monitoring the stability of structures where slope instability is occurring.


Monitoring the deflection of bridges and beams under load.

QUICK SPECS

Beams can be linked together to provide detailed movement data over long distances.


Analog, digital, and frequency outputs available.


Easily adaptable to data logging.


Integral temperature sensor.


Fibreglass composite beams minimize thermal effects.


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).


View brochure for complete specifications.

BENEFITS

Increase Safety


Quick Delivery


High Accuracy


High Reliability


Custom Options (See Brochure)
