Sherborne Sensors’ WTS Is A Flexible, All-weather Radio Telemetry System Designed To Provide High Accuracy Remote Angle Measurement Data

July 2020 MARIETTA, GA ~ The WTS gives surveyors, geotechnical specialists and structural engineers the ability to record and log data remotely without the cost and inefficiency of traditional wired methods.

The heart of the system is the WTS Wireless Inclinometer; a high-accuracy robust instrument utilizing advanced MEMS sensor technology to ensure maximum reliability. A variety of complementary base stations and either PC or hand-held data acquisition modules allow a complete measurement system to be configured to suit any application. A variety of fixed base stations and hand-held readers are 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 monitor entire structures can be costly and labor intensive. Using the WTS Wireless Tilt System, a single structure is fitted with low power WTS Inclinometers at strategic locations, which helps determine where weak points may be and when maintenance is required.

Additionally, the WTS Wireless Tilt System may be used to verify design calculations when new structures are manufactured. This provides valuable data to refine computer models of structural behavior.
