Retrievable In-Place Inclinometer System (MEMS)

Retrievable In-Place Inclinometer System (MEMS)



A custom, retrievable, In-Place Inclinometer system(CPX-1) has been produced to monitor ongoing deformation in inclinometer casings after the zones of movement (shear planes) have been detected by a portable, Digital Inclinometer System.

The system is 10 m in length and comprises 20 addressable biaxial inclinometer sensors, on 0.5 m spacings. It is provided with a suspension cable to permit installation spanning 10 m zones at depths up to 60 m, and a signal cable to connect to a datalogger located up to 10 m away.

The IPI segments, wheel assemblies, and cables are all securely packed in a sturdy, weatherproof and shockproof transport case suitable to withstand working conditions likely to be encountered in the field.
