Tiltmeter or Beam Sensor is used to monitor vertical rotation, deflection, & deformation of diaphragm & retaining walls. Encardio-rite is the world’s leading manufacturer and supplier of affordable, accurate, robust, and reliable tiltmeters, as well as, beam sensors.
Tilt in any structure can be caused by various construction activities like excavation, tunnelling, or de-watering that may negatively affect the ground that supports the structure.
Tilt changes can also occur due to the loading of the structure, such as loading of a dam during impoundment, a diaphragm wall during excavation or, a bridge deck due to wind and traffic.
The data captured from the tiltmeter gives an early warning of threatening deformations, allowing time for corrective action to be taken.
Applications of Tiltmeter and Beam Sensors:
Encardio-rite offers the following range of Tiltmeters:
Model EAN 70M - Portable Tiltmeter
The EAN-70M portable tiltmeter incorporates a sensor based on precision MEMS accelerometer technology. It is housed in a rugged frame with machined surfaces that facilitate accurate positioning on the tilt plate. This portable tiltmeter is suitable for monitoring changes in the inclination of a structure.
Model EAN 90M -Analog Tiltmeter
Model EAN-90M tilt meter consists of a MEMS sensor, mounted inside a stainless steel housing. The sensor SS enclosure is welded using an electron beam welding technique, with a vacuum of 1/1000 Torr inside it. The sensor provides a relatively low-cost system that offers excellent resolution, long term stability and low thermal sensitivity.
Model EAN 91M - Box Type Analog Tiltmeter
Model EAN-91M is used as a beam sensor for monitoring differential movement and rotation in structures. It is also used for monitoring deflection and deformation of retaining walls. The EAN-91M tilt meter output is 4 V nominal at ± 15°. This output can be transmitted over long distances without any signal degradation.
Model EAN 92M - Digital Tiltmeter
The Encardio-rite model EAN-92M is an advanced digital tiltmeter designed to monitor inclination and vertical rotation in structures in real-time. It is a high-resolution tilt meter, rugged in construction and has excellent temperature stability.
Model EAN 93M - Box Type Digital Tiltmeter
Model EAN-93M box type digital tilt meter consists of a uniaxial MEMS sensor mounted inside a compact, weatherproof enclosure. These tiltmeters are suitable for monitoring small changes in inclination and vertical rotation of structures.
Model EAN-93M/EAN-93M-B - Box-type Tilt Beam Sensor
The Encardio-rite model EAN-93M/EAN-93M-B box-type tiltmeter and beam sensor are suitable for monitoring small changes in inclination and vertical rotation of structures. The Model EAN-93M tiltmeter (box type) is equipped with an SDI-12 digital interface such that all sensors can be connected through a single bus cable to the compact automatic data logger.
Model EAN 95MW - Wireless Tilt Meter with RF Transmission
The tiltmeter is a standalone unit in a weatherproof compact enclosure and provides reliable and high-resolution readings with long term stability. It is interfaced with the long-range, low power wireless radio frequency network that allows tiltmeters to send recorded data to the Gateway. The Gateway then uploads all the collected sensor data to the central/cloud server.
Model ESDL-30MT - Wireless Tilt Meter with GPRS/GSM Transmission
ESDL-30MT wireless tilt meter consists of one uniaxial or biaxial MEMS tilt sensor mounted inside an automatic SDI-12 digital interface data logger. It is a complete unit in itself to monitor tilt at any location. It features a wide operating temperature range, dependable stand-alone operation, low power consumption, compatibility with many telecommunication options and flexibility to support a variety of measurement and control applications.
