The Geosense® TiltArray™ can be used to monitor the magnitude and direction of lateral deformation vertically, and vertical deformation horizontally.
During manufacture the nodes are installed, connected and tested for a correct response and then moulded along a Kevlar cable at set spacing (usually 0.5 m). Their calibration files are recorded and stored on each node's internal memory and copied to a non-volatile memory (SD card). Once the Geosense® TiltArray™ is connected to a data logger or readout unit the data can be downloaded.
Different types of nodes are available to suit the application and magnitude of deformation expected. In addition Piezometer and Barometric nodes are also available.
