Sherborne Sensors reports growing demand for Wireless Tilt System

26 April 2012

All weather radio telemetry system offers high accuracy, remote angle measurement data

London, UK, 25 April 2012 ‐ Sherborne Sensors, a global leader in the design and manufacture of sensors for military, aerospace and industrial applications, reports increased demand for its Wireless Tilt System (WTS). The WTS is designed to provide surveyors, geotechnical specialists, manufacturing managers, and structural engineers with a complete measurement solution, able to record and log data remotely without the cost and complexity of traditional wired methods.

Extremely robust, the WTS maintains precision accuracy operating in all weather conditions and offers a distortion-free digital two-way telemetry system. Multiple devices can operate across 16 channels, each capable of supporting up to 200 data packets per second.

Key features of the WTS include a wireless range of up to 330ft (100m), 18-bit resolution and an exceptional battery life of up to five years. The system also operates on license free, worldwide 2.4GHz and uses a propriety protocol based on an 804.15.4 chip, permitting the WTS to co-exist with Bluetooth, Zigbee and WiFi devices without conflict.

“The WTS eliminates the large revenues and intensive labour associated with conventional wired methods of monitoring and assessing manufacturing operations and asset structural health,” said Mike Baker, Managing Director, Sherborne Sensors. “The engineer simply fits the low power inclinometers to strategic points on a given structure or component thus helping to determine range of motion, as well as any structural weaknesses, and whether maintenance is required. This simple and cost-effective solution is extremely beneficial, especially when multiple readings must be obtained.”

The heart of the system features the WTS Wireless inclinometer, which uses an advanced MEMS sensor to ensure high accuracy and maximum reliability. A variety of complementary base stations and PC or hand-held data acquisition modules are also available to deliver a complete measurement solution configurable to any type of structural health monitoring application. Furthermore, the WTS may be used to verify design calculations during the manufacturing of new structures, providing valuable data for refining computer models of structural behaviour, as well as optimise the set up time for new and complex manufacturing lines.

Sherborne Sensors can customise all of its inclinometers and manufacture to comply with specific customer requirements within its AS9100B Quality Management System. In addition, all Sherborne Sensors products come with an industry exclusive two‐year comprehensive warranty and Guaranteed On‐Time Delivery programme, and are meticulously tested and calibrated to international standards prior to shipment.
