Monitoring specialist Senceive has announced the launch of two new products to its range.
The Flat Mesh Nano is a small tri-axial tilt sensor and also incorporates key features from Senceive’s Flat Mesh wireless communications platform within a smaller package. According to the company, it is ideally suited to use in tunnelling applications.
The other latest development is an infra-red illuminated camera that can also integrate with the wireless Flat Mesh sensors to allow real-time visual confirmation of movement detected by sensors on earthworks/embankments, bridges, retaining walls and other structures. Senceive has said that the camera captures still images of the monitoring when automatically triggered by a Flat Mesh sensor or can be initiated remotely by the user.
According to Senceive’s Graham Smith, the benefits are that it reduces the requirement for engineering site visits when a geotechnical movement event has occurred. “It has already been deployed successfully on several earthworks and retaining wall locations in the UK,” he adds.
