Designed to steel structures in:
- Excavation bracing
Bridges Standard unit has a 150mm gauge length, a 3000µε range The gauge is adaptable for bonding to concrete or bolting to steel surfaces via the end mounting blocks.
Steel wire length is tensioned between two mounting blocks that are arc welded to the surface of a structural steel member. Deformation of the structure under load produces relative movement between the two mounting blocks causing a change in wire tension and a corresponding change in its frequency of vibration. Using standard vibrating wire principles easily read by loggers or readout.
- Robust user-friendly design
- Long term stability
- High water resistance
- Read over long cable lengths
- Read with standard vibrating wire loggers and readouts.
- Removable coil so easy replacement if cable is damaged
Automatic temperature compensation via hermetically sealed thermistor.
