Advanced warning for landslide
Every year when there is a typhoon, heavy rain or earthquake occurrence in Taiwan, these have brought different levels of disaster to the country.
One of the major civil engineering firms is working with Novotechnik's IH5003 inclinometer that is employed in a warning system.
Two IH5003 inclinometers in a tube were installed at every three meters, one is used to measure the X-axis movement and the other is used to measure Y-axis movement. All together, 20 inclinometers were put on and laid down in soil at a depth of 30 meters.
Wherever industrial machinery operates within an accuracy of microns, you'll find Novotechnik at work. Novotechnik position sensors enable bullet trains to smoothly round curves at high speed, and fly- and drive- by-wire for jets and cars respectively. They are used to maintain constant speed in packaging machines and for precise positioning of injection pins and dosing cylinders in injection molding machines. You'll find them in mobile and medical equipment, in machine tools, in laboratories – in any application where accuracy, repeatability and reliability are paramount.
