GeoCloud Wireless Tiltmeters

GeoCloud tiltmeters are a new generation of efficient, battery-powered, wireless digital sensors.

There are two versions: The larger Wireless Tiltmeter offers longer battery life. The smaller Wireless Mini-Tiltmeter is compact and discrete.

Applications

  • Monitoring the stability of structures adjacent to excavations.
  • Monitoring landslides, rockfalls, and embankments.
  • Monitoring movement of shoring walls.
  • Monitoring the tilt of piers and piles.
  • Monitoring differential settlement and heave.
  • Monitoring deformation in tunnels.
  • Monitoring effects of jet, compaction, and compensation grouting in real time.

GeoCloud Sensor Overview

Advantages

High Performance: GeoCloud tiltmeters provide high resolution, high precision, low noise measurements.

Cloud or Local Access: The cellular gateway transmits measurements to the internet for cloud access. The USB gateway provides on-site access for real-time control.

Versatile Mounting Options:GeoCloud tiltmeters can be installed in any orientation. A wide variety of plates and brackets provide convenient mounting to walls, stakes and poles, and track ties.

Self-Configuring Communications:GeoCloud tiltmeters automatically optimize communication paths to the gateway.

Cable-Free: GeoCloud tiltmeters provide their own power and transmit measurements by radio, entirely eliminating the cost of cables, cable protection, and cable maintenance.

GeoCloud Services: GeoCloud provides access to data wherever there is an internet connection. GeoCloud services operate 24 hours a day, processing measurements, checking for alarms, and generating graphs, reports, and alerts.
