The digital inclinometer system consists of a traversing type digital tilt sensing probe that is connected to a reel unit. The reel unit consists of a winding reel that holds the cable and a wireless Bluetooth relay unit that sends the digital probe data to the readout unit. A rechargeable battery in thecable reel unit supplies power to the whole system.
Encardio-rite offers model EAN-26M (vertical) and model EAN-26M-H (horizontal) inclinometers systems that are one of the most advanced MEMS digital inclinometer systems being produced anywhere in the world. Both the vertical and horizontal systems uses a smart phone as its readout unit. It utilizes the capability of high computational power and large high resolution colour display of today’s Android OS based mobile phones as a readout and data storage unit.This allows display of the logged borehole data as tables or various types of graphs commonly used at back end computers to visualize the data. Thus, the field operator can easily verify the logged data and investigate any anomaly immediately at site.
The wireless link between the cable reel and readout unit, eliminates the traditional slip ring and cable connection between the reel unit and the handheld readout that often became unreliable due to frayed cable and slip ring problem.
The digital Inclinometer system basically consists of four components:
· Access tube and fittings
· Digital tilt sensing probe (vertical or horizontal)
· Interconnecting cable on a portable reel
· Mobile phone as a readout/datalogger unit
