  • Rock surveillance tsunami warning

    Rock surveillance tsunami warning

    In Norway an early warning system was developed using 3 Dimetix sensors. These measure daily the movements of rocks above a bay. Thus, a warning can be triggered in the event of a landslide.
    Controlling of the filling and pour of steel and iron

    Controlling of the filling and pour of steel and iron

    Dimetix sensors were installed in a foundry to monitor the filling of hot steel and iron. With the aid of the sensors the level can be measured and an overflow can be avoided.
    Lifting of mining equipment

    Lifting of mining equipment

    In a mining application, Dimetix laser distance sensors have been used to ensure an accurate lifting and lowering process of the superstructure. In the case of a deviation, a signal was sent to the hydraulic system so that it could be corrected again.
    Cutting application

    Cutting application

    In the metal industry, devices for length division are frequently used. However, many standard solutions, which are available on the market, are not optimal for some companies. With Dimetix laser distance sensors, an economical special model can be offered.
    Moving of large structures

    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.
    Monitoring of rockformation above railwaytrack

    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.
    Monitoring of pressure tunnel

    Monitoring of pressure tunnel

    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.
    Monitoring of historic tower

    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.
    Structural health monitoring

    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.
    Bridge structural monitoring

    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.
    Laser controlled cut off solution

    Laser controlled cut off solution

    Increasing operational demands, maintenance requirements, and the growing importance of efficiency are factors in nearly all industries. This is relevant in the metals production industry, and especially true for the small to midsized companies at the heart of the fabrication & metalworking, where laser measurement technology provides an economical approach to reducing production delays and improving quality, as well as an affordable technological advantage helping to increase efficiency.
    Measuring flood gate height

    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.
    Saw blade alignment

    Saw blade alignment

    Large saw blades used for cutting different materials frequently shift out of alignment, resulting in cuts at the wrong angle and unnecessary reworking and scrap. A maintenance free laser distance sensor saw blade alignment system provided a reliable,repeatable, and cost effective means of improving production quality and eliminating unnecessary scrap.
    Monitoring transfer car position

    Monitoring transfer car position

    In a steel production facility, large transfer cars transported glowing steel plates. Due to a malfunction of the micro-switches, the cars collided at the end of a transfer line. With the help of two Dimetix lasers integrated in protective housings, a smooth production could be restored.

    Length positioning of Woodbinders

    Length positioning of Woodbinders

    Spruce wood has been produced at our customers facility for decades with great care and professional competence and is not a freely interchangeable product. Because the big difference is in countless details that have been perfected over the many years. Our customer has the most modern know-how for the production of cuttings for a wide range of applications such as planking, timber construction, roof constructions, pallet production etc. Dimetix lasers are used daily. The truss length is used for positioning and to enhance their operational efficiency.
    Truck position measurement

    Truck position measurement

    In times of increasing traffic and ever more demanding tasks where time is of the essence, a system was developed to speed up customs checks on HGV vehicles. This device helps to significantly reduce time consuming check ups on vehicles since the positioning of the trucks is done with sensors. Customs uses mobile X-Ray scanners to check the content of trucks and containers. During the scanning process the movement of the scanner must be determined precisely.
    Supervision of railway infrastructure

    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.

    AN2002 SSI interface usage

    AN2002 SSI interface usage

    SSI is a widely used serial interface standard for industrial applications between a master (e.g. controller) and a slave (e.g. laser distnace sensor). On an SSI communication channel, the master generates a clock, while the slave sends the data corresponding to the received clock signal. Only point to point communication is possible with the SSI interface. The RS-422 standard defines the electrical signal levels of the SSI interface.
