Tilt Beam (TB) sensor consists of a MEMS tiltmeter mounted on a rigid aluminium beam with a defined gauge length, typically 1, 2 or 3 meters. Beams should be fixed to the structure in chains or in stand-alone installations.
Tilt beams are available as a digital sensor, with uniaxial sensor integrated into the beam body, or with a tilt meter mounted on the aluminium beam. Digital TB are typically installed in horizontal chains on structures in order to monitor differential settlements or heaves.
Having uniaxial or biaxial sensor, Tilt Beams can be installed horizontally, vertically or inclined: thanks to the fixing and adjustment plate, the tilt beam could be utilised to monitor tilting or displacement in a large number of applications.
- Removable and modular system for multiple installation
- Simple and fast installation thanks to the installed-at factory connectors (digital version)
- Inclined installation allowed (analogue model)
- Real-time monitoring with a data logger
Digital Tilt Beam Application
- Diaphragm walls
- Deep excavations
