Model EAN-53MW is the most advanced wireless in-place inclinometer
(IPI) system, designed to measure the lateral movement of earthworks or
structures. The IPI is used in critical applications where real-time monitoring
and early warning are required in order to protect life and valuable assets.
The wireless IPI system basically consists of an array of digital inclination
sensors, placed inside the inclinometer gage well.
The IPI sensor array is interfaced with the wireless network through a
Node that allows sensors to send recorded data to the Gateway through a long-range
radio frequency wireless communication network. The Gateway then uploads all the collected
sensor data to the central/cloud server. Model EAN-53MW IPI consists of tilt sensors with SDI-12 output.
A single 3 conductor bus cable is threaded in a daisy chain
fashion connecting each digital IPIsensor to its next immediate neighbor and
finally to the top of the borehole and directly to the wireless communication
network through a Node. This has great advantages at locations with a large
number of sensors in a borehole, as it eliminates the hassle to accommodate a large number of individual signal cables inside the borehole. The wireless
system adds to this advantage by eliminating the need for running lengthy
cables across large sites.
The design allows each sensor to move independently to each other
without influence from the sensors above or below. This provides a profile of
displacement over the complete length of the installation.
