ELS rail track monitoring system


ELS rail track monitoring system can precisely measure any settlement or wrenching of rails on railroad tracks. The gage that is installed parallel with the rail consists of each tilt sensor for measuring settlement and wrenching, a kit of mounting bracket, extension tube. It is installed parallel along with between rails and has 2~3m length, which is bigger than the excavation work not to hinder transportation service. With any transformation on a railroad bed, the placed angle of tilt sensor as much as the changed amount of influenced X-axis. The angle of the sensor changes along with any change of sinking or rising of Y-axis to measure the length direction. We can also diagram the displacement value as graph use in RTM-PRO.

VW weir monitoring system


Model 1650 VW Weir monitoring system employs a VW force transducer and is sensitive to water level. This consists of the VW transducer, a cylindrical buoy. assembly to detect water level, and a chamber to inject water. Water level in a chamber serves as buoyancy that is equal to adjacent water level. Changes in buoyancy on the buoy assembly caused by water level, change tension of the vibrating wire. When using it under weir monitoring system on the dam site. You have to apply them to accessories on V notch, wave filter and discharge weir and the size or installing place has to be consulted beforehand.

Bireflection target
Model 7500 is a optical meter for civil engineering works such as tunnel or excavating underground. There are a triple prism and bireflection target for a light wave target. Triple prism is a processed crystal with a high degree. As it makes use of refraction of light, it shows high reflexibility and allows increasing the range of force up to 500m. Though it allows measuring 3D, it requires special caution on potential damage if not readily dealt with the condition of the site. Bireflection target uses high brightness for displacement and thus its accuracy is lower than triple prism and its range of force is up to 100m. As it allows for 2 dimension measurement, it is very handy for civil engineering works such as tunnel and its price is very low compared to prism. 7500 Model Accuracy Angle measurement : 0.5mgon Displacement measurement : 1.2 Weight 0.1 Material Nylon #66 + G.F 50% Target grade High bright reflection sheet

Web monitoring program is for sharing the information and for supporting the prompt decision-making with the person concerned under construction at a site. The measured data is saved to the server computer by internet network. It is program that drawing up the measuring report, making a graph of engineering unit, giving an alarm, and lookup of a real-time measuring data are possible on the basis of the saved data. Web monitor can draw up the report using all computers that web browser is installed at the remote place, so you can work quickly and efficiently. Web monitor is web monitor center program that we developed for information construct at the company of civil and building construction, or engineering company of design, supervision, and measuring. It is a rental service for automatic measure using the web monitor center program as rental type by the month period without the construction cost of the system or the server computer.
