    An automatic monitoring system was used in a headwater pressure tunnel to measure the passive bias of penstocks during injections. As soon as the limit values were exceeded, an alarm lamp illuminated, so that the injections could be stopped.
    AE0203 Supervision of railway infrastructure

    AE0203 Supervision of railway infrastructure

    Accurate distance measurement is essential in railway construction – for new development as well for maintenance. Speed trains of the latest generation move at maximum speeds of over 300km/h. In order to preserve the rolling stock at such strains, millimeter precise measuring is inevitable.
    AE0205 Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrack

    AE0205 Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrack

    Dimetix sensors are used to monitor a debris flow activity. These rocks can lead to the accumulation of a mountain stream, which can lead to a flooding of a rail track. In addition, two additional lasers are used to monitor a large boulder that moves downhill and puts a village in danger.
    AE0207 Moving of large structures

    AE0207 Moving of large structures

    In order to move large structures as bridges and buildings, the PolyDist system is the optimal solution. With up to 4 Dimetix sensors the process of moving is constantly monitored so that the structure can be moved and repositioned precisely.
    AE0305 Monitoring of historic tower

    AE0305 Monitoring of historic tower

    In historic buildings the fabric can often be damaged. With the aid of a monitoring concept which includes Dimetix sensors, the movements of historical buildings are monitored and examined.
    AE0508 Measuring flood gate height

    AE0508 Measuring flood gate height

    The ability to reliably and precisely monitor flood gate height is a challenge for hydropower and reservoir flood gate operators. Dimetix laser sensors can be used for remote monitoring of the flood gates. The sensors measure the distance to the surface of the flood gates.
    AE0510 Bridge structural monitoring

    AE0510 Bridge structural monitoring

    Dimetix helped make history in 2010 by collaborating with Applied Geomechanics, Inc. to develop a system to monitor the lift and placement of steel bridge truss sections on the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi River in New Orleans. The project involved transportation by river barge, lifting, and placement of the pre-assembled bridge truss spans to reduce stress on the bridge and minimize interruption of traffic. Ten DLS-C laser distance sensors were lifted aboard the 2,700 ton trusses and were used in conjunction with specially fabricated targets and software developed to monitor beam deflection during the day long lift.
    AE0511 Structural health monitoring

    AE0511 Structural health monitoring

    In modern urban environments, heavy construction often must be conducted immediately adjacent to neighboring properties and structures that must remain open to business or residency during excavation and construction. Traditional surveying techniques allow for +/-5 mm precision of displacement, but Dimetix laser distance sensor technology allows for measurements with sub-millimeter accuracy at distances up to 500 m to detect any shift or displacement of structures.
