Automated Monitoring

Axis3D AMO - Automated Monitoring

Stand-alone trigonometric deformation measurements

Stand-alone trigonometric deformation measurements Maximum security: Alarms and data transfer in real-time, 24/7.

Stand-alone operation: Data transfer via 3G/GPRS, power supplied by solar panels or fuel cells.

Minimal equipment for fast set up: Up and running within one hour.

Automated measurements: Considers shifts in station positions and influence of refraction.

Configuration and Stand-alone Measurements

Data Transfer and Visualization

The stand-alone trigonometric system continuously measures object coordinates and checks for deformations. Shifts in station coordinates and the influence of refraction are calculated and corrected on-board in the field.
Measurement routines are pre-configured; there is no need for a permanent communication link to the office server. The field system runs without a computer, keeping power consumption to a minimum.
3d deformations
Deformation results are stored as ASCII files and automatically transferred to the office via 3G/GPRS. The field equipment is permanently monitored. Remote maintenance from the office allows control settings to be adjusted and possible errors to be corrected. Visualization (PC- and Web-based) for data analysis are carried out using Axis3D Deformation Graphics (DG) software, or other programs already in use.
