  • Inclinometers

    Inclinometers play a big part in construction, particularly when the construction project involves digging down to provide basements for parking etc. They provide important information on how the sides of the excavation are performing while spoil is being extracted (are the sides moving in or out).

  • Strain Monitoring

    All materials subjected to a change in load undergo a change in dimension, i.e. strain. Strain is defined as Change in length/original length; a dimensionless value. Strain gauges vary in length; however, CMCS typically monitor strain over 150 mm requiring the gauge to have a resolution of approximately 0.0002 mm in order to monitor micro strain.

  • Vibration Monitoring

    The CMCS Vibradec is a logging unit that when connected by cable to one or two geophone sensing arrays, records and processes vibrations in three orthogonal directions, X, Y and Z. Limits can be set on allowable levels of vibration that if exceeded cause an alarm.
