The SMART Tiltmeter is a rugged, high precision, all-digital solution for tilt monitoring of structural elements. Applications include structural health monitoring (SHM), deflection monitoring, construction quality control, and erection safety. The device is easily mounted to the structure using built-in mounting holes. The aircraft grade aluminum housing is rugged and suitable for harsh corrosive environments. The device is IP67 rated against dust and pressure washdown ingress.
Connection to PC, data acquisition system, or SCADA is accomplished using the built in waterproof RJ45 Network connection or 4-pin RS-485 half-duplex connection. Power is provided using either power over ethernet (POE) or a dedicated power carrier in the RS-485 port. The device complies with standard MODBUS RTU communication protocol for easy integration with other systems.
