Question: How to measure the gradual inclination or tilt of a tree, tower, building, or any infrastructure?
Answer: Measuring the angle of inclination of the telecommunication poles is necessary to assess the subsidence of the base of the building. This will help prevent the tower from falling during heavy rainstorms.
Similarly, other objects or structures also need to be monitored for inclination, or subsidence such as Trees, light poles, electric poles, buildings...
Using the wireless sensor is the best cost-effective way to monitor the inclination. Please refer to some wireless sensors as below:
1. Sub-GHz wireless tilt sensor: https://www.daviteq.com/en/?prd=_WS433-AG_wireless-3-axis-tilt-sensor
2. LoRaWAN tilt sensor: https://www.daviteq.com/en/?prd=_WSLRW-AG_lorawan-tilt-sensor
3. Sigfox-Ready tilt sensor: https://www.daviteq.com/en/?prd=_WSSFC-AG_sigfox-tilt-sensor
How does the sensor work?
The sensor will measure the tilt angles of the X-Y-Z axis and transmit the data in a pre-defined interval, for example in every 1 hour.
It can also send the alert immediately if one of the angles is larger than the pre-setting threshold.
How is the battery life?
- Sigfox-Ready Tilt sensor with 2 x AA Energizer L91, RC4, 1h update, 4 alarms/day, 5 minutes measurement rate, 3 x transmits/message, 1 x downlink per day ==> Battery will last at least 4.7 years!
Note: this sensor can not measure the high-speed swing angles of a tree or a pole. For this application, please use the advanced wireless displacement sensor.
