INSTRUMENTATION

GEOTECHNICAL INSTRUMENTATION

Automated instrumentation is a fast-growing industry that is quickly becoming an essential part of the geotechnical engineering practice. With relatively low cost, reliability and versatility, automated instrumentation is becoming the key to economic, safe and predictable solutions for most geotechnical problems. AATech also designs and manufacturers instrumentation systems for specialized monitoring situations and modified other systems to adapt to complex requirements.

ADVANTAGES

  1. Easy to setup and use
  2. Extremely accurate
  3. Capable of collecting data at one-second intervals
  4. All readings of load and displacement are taken simultaneously
  5. Eliminates human errors in reading instruments

REMOTE DATA COLLECTION AND MONITORING

Programmable instrumentation can collect data far more frequently, and with less potential for errors, than a surveying crew or an instrumentation technician. It therefore, provides more reliable and more representative data. AATech’s engineers have installed state-of-the-art instrumentation on many sites for monitoring parameters such as pore water pressure, settlement, slope movement and other engineering concerns. Some of these installations are remotely monitored from our main offices, thousands of kilometers/miles away from the site.

REMOTE SENSING 

AATech has the ability to monitor and collect remote, on-site data affordably and accurately through our Remote Data Collection (RDC). This technology is highly effective, particularly for reading and analyzing results during extreme weather conditions that can hamper other methods. RDC allows project engineers to review results for quick analysis and interpretation.
