Tunnelling Method NATM
Rod extensometers are installed in
borehole to monitor displacements at
various depths using rods of different
material and lengths.
A pre-set length of measuring rod
is inserted into a nylon tube to avoid soil
friction and its tip is fixed to a steel
groutable anchor. Preassembled fibre
glass rods are coiled at factory and
shipped ready for installation.
The complete assembly is inserted
into the borehole and then grouted, fixing
the anchors to the rock or soil
but allowing free movement of each
rod within its sleeve.
Relative movements between
the anchors and the reference head
are measured manually with caliper or
linear transducers, assembled on the
reference head for remote monitoring.

DTE DISPLACEMENT TRANSDUCERS
electromagnetic compatibility according to EN 61326-1 and EN 61326-A1 directives for EMC emission and immunity
The mechanical system is easily converted to provide an electrical output for
remote monitoring and data acquisition. An electrical linear displacement
transducer is fitted to each extensometer rod. The range of the displacement
transducer is selected to match the rod displacement. The transducer can be
adjusted on the extensometer head to trim the zero position. An electric cable
connects the displacement transducers to measuring box, or to ADK-100 data
acquisition system.
READOUT SYSTEMS
CRD-400 digital readout and NEW LEONARDO or GALILEO dataloggers are
portable, battery operated units suitable for obtaining data from DTE transducers.
These readout units may be connected directly to the transducers using the
measuring connector fitted at the end of the cable, or to the switch measuring box
by a jumper cable. ADK-100 system provides unattended data logging with DTE
displacement transducers. ADK-100 can be connected via data transmission link
(cable, fibre optics, GSM, ethernet, etc.) to a remote centre for data management.
Please refer to relevant product data sheets for further informations.
