Check inclinometer tubes .
The IN980 spiral probe has been designed to check inclinometer tubes, in cases where:
- a very precise inclinometric measurement is required.
- the inclinometer casings are very deep (> 50mt).
- in the data processing the direction of the landslide seems unlikely.
Thanks to its high technical characteristics, the accurate mechanical components and the state-of-the-art electronics, the IN980 spiralometer is an instrument of absolute efficiency and ease of use, which allows you to optimize the execution of site measurements without having to compile endless data.
The stainless steel inclinometer probe consists of a central body which houses the sensor inside and two wheel-carrying trolleys for sliding the probe inside the tube. The probe pitch (distance between the carriages) is 0,5mt. The inclinometer probe is supplied with a sturdy carrying case.
The rotary displacement sensor, positioned in the center of the probe, measures the deviation in degrees between the axis of the lower wheels and the axis of the upper wheels.
The electric connection cable rolled up on a roll is equipped with a watertight connector up to 50 bar and guarantees the support of the probe in the positions foreseen during the measurements, thanks to the special kevlar core which gives the cable the important characteristic of inextensibility, ensuring reliability and precision in positioning at height for the execution of the measurement. The cable is also equipped with reference marks every half meter with a maximum error on the length of ± 5cm / 100m and an elongation (with a load of 20Kg) less than 0.05% of the nominal length (it is possible to use the same cable as the inclinometer to carry out measurements with the spiralometric probe).
The INCLAB Manager and INCLAB Processing software, which are supplied as standard with the INCLAB reading system, automatically detect the readings of A and B on the chosen guides, at the relative measurement heights.
