Electrolyic Tiltmeter & Beam Sensors

This tilt sensor are designed for measuring very small tilts, of the order of half a degree, with a high resolution. It is designed to monitor rotation and deflection of structures such as buildings, retaining walls etc. in a vertical plane. These are rugged and high-resolution tilt meters and housed in a compact weatherproof enclosure.


Electrolytic Uniaxial Beam Sensor

This beam sensor consists of a sensor mounted on a beam of specified gage length and suitable mounting hardware for fixing the beams to the structure. The individual beam sensors are generally used in linked form to give a differential displacement profile. An array of linked beam sensors allows the vertical settlement profile along the array line to be determined.

Electrolytic Uniaxial Beam Sensor

This tilt meter is suitable for monitoring inclination and vertical rotation of structures. It is a high resolution tilt meter and rugged in construction. The electrolytic tilt sensor is housed inside the beam (1, 2 or 3 m long). These individual beam sensors can be fixed on to the structures or used in linked form to give differential displacement profile. An EDI-53ELV read-out logger is required to read voltage output from sensor. The output can also be monitored or logged at a remote location by our automatic data acquisition system/automatic data loggers.
