Portable Inclinometer

The Portable MEMS Inclinometer utilises the very latest in bluetooth and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical) technology to provide fast and highly accurate readings.

The system comprises a slimline probe (detachable), lightweight cable reel and a rugged pda (personal digital assistant) which is used to view and/or download data at the borehole. The probes are fitted with guide wheels and contains MEMS accelerometers measuring tilts in two perpendicular planes: One in the plane of the inclinometer wheels is known as the a axis; the other, in a plane perpendicular to that of the wheels, is known as the b axis.

The lightweight Kevlar® reinforced cable is mounted on a lightweight tough plastic reel which houses the bluetooth module for wireless communication to the pda. The cable is attached to the probe via a waterproof (to 1500m) quick connection which allows the probe to be detached, significantly reducing transport costs when returned for recalibration.

The probes contain ‘on board’ calibration making it completely interchangeable with any reel.

There are three different types of Portable Inclinometer:

  • Inclined
  • Vertical
  • Horizontal

Applications

Inclined:

  • Monitoring down-stream face of concrete-faced rock-filled dams

Horizontal:

Monitoring settlement or heave under structures and for observation of ground movement caused by construction, excavation or fill placement in:

  • Dams
  • Roadways
  • Storage tanks
  • Landfills

Vertical:

  • Direction of movement and shear-plane identification in natural and cut slopes
  • Lateral displacement of dams & embankments
  • Deflection of bridge piers and abutments
  • Deflection of dam membranes, diaphragm and retaining walls
  • Stability of tunnels, shafts, underground workings and piled foundations
