Flexible, all-weather radio telemetry system
Product Announcement from Sherborne Sensors
The WTS Wireless Tilt System is a flexible, all-weather radio telemetry system designed to provide high accuracy remote angle measurement data. The WTS enables surveyors, geotechnical specialists and structural engineers to record and log data remotely without the cost and impracticality of traditional wired methods.
The heart of the system is the WTS Wireless Inclinometer; a high-accuracy robust instrument utilising advanced MEMS sensor technology to ensure maximum reliability. A variety of complementary base stations and either PC or handheld data acquisition modules is offered to allow a complete measurement system to be configured to suit any particular application. A wide variety of fixed base stations and hand held readers is available to enable the user to tailor the system to their optimal requirements.
Highway agencies, bridge and civil structure owners spend large revenues assessing structural health by visual or other types of consuming inspection methods of bolted and welded joints, together with other vital structural elements. Obtaining multiple readings to monitoring the entire structure can be costly and labour intensive. Using the WTS Wireless Tilt System, a single structure can be fitted with low power WTS Inclinometers at strategic points, thus helping to determine where weak points may be and when maintenance is required.
Additionally, the WTS Wireless Tilt System may be used in the verification of design calculations when new structures are manufactured providing valuable data to refine computer models of structural behaviour.
Sherborne Sensors....the first choice in precision
Sherborne Sensors high precision inclinometers are designed to measure horizontal and vertical angular inclination with virtually infinite resolution. Our inclinometers provide reliable, highly accurate, tilt and inclination measurements and are used in demanding military and industrial applications where high precision angular measurements are essential.
Sherborne Sensors manufacture a wide range of high precision inertial accelerometers to measure linear acceleration and deceleration with the highest levels of accuracy and reliability. Our accelerometers are used in demanding aerospace, aviation, military and industrial applications around the world.
The Sherborne Sensors range of high performance compression force transducers, force sensors and load cells provide unrivalled performance and reliability for a diverse range of load applications.
Sherborne Sensors actively supports a substantial infrastructure to design, develop, test and deliver customised sensor products and systems across all of the market areas we serve. This includes our own in house specialists in mechanical prototyping, electrical circuit design, accessory design and integration, and sensor packaging.
We welcome opportunities to design and evaluate solutions that modify our existing products, or require a completely new sensor, built around our proven inertial sensor elements.
We are very adept at not only designing robust, accurate and repeatable products, but also doing so in a cost effective and timely manner. Recognizing that design features of a sensor may at times enhance certain specification capabilities at the expense of others, we invest significant effort in consulting with our customers to completely understand their requirements, and convey our design recommendations in a comprehensive offering.
Products manufactured by Sherborne Sensors are highly precise, accurate and robust, and are found in very demanding applications. As part of any preventative maintenance program, our sensors should be recalibrated on a regular basis. Our manufacturing facility is fully capable of confirming performance of field units to original manufacturer’s specifications, providing a certificate of performance that is traceable recognised international standards. In addition, Sherborne Sensors welcomes the opportunity to calibrate competitor’s products as well.
In addition to recalibration services, Sherborne Sensors offers our customers the option to repair units that are damaged in the field. As part of this process, prior to initiation of any work, Sherborne Sensors provides our customers with a detailed analysis of the unit’s performance, the root cause for the unit’s inability to meet factory performance specifications, and a firm fixed cost for the unit’s repair. We will also advise our customers if a unit cannot be economically repaired, and instead requires replacement.
