Automated monitoring of settlement poles: Enhancing safety and efficiency

By automating the monitoring of settlement poles, safety and efficiency are enhanced. Settlement monitoring is performed to ensure safety and to detect any changes that may occur. It can be conducted on structures where settlement should not occur as well as on structures where changes in settlement need to be monitored.

Until now, settlement pole monitoring has relied on manual measurements. To enable continuous monitoring, FinMeas has developed a satellite-based, automatic, battery-powered settlement monitoring system.

Anticipatory, user-friendly, and safety monitoring

The automatic settlement monitoring system tracks settlement rate and its progression, enabling not only safety monitoring but also predicting and detecting the end of a settlement period, such as for embankments. With a clear view of the future, it is easier to plan and schedule the next steps. Replacing manual measurements with continuous, automatic monitoring enables data to be collected more frequently, providing a clearer picture of the situation and enabling faster response to changes. The device is easy to install, use, and can be moved if necessary.

Measurements at a desired frequency

The device's antenna is attached to the settlement pole or other monitored structure, with the only required cable being the one between the antenna and the control unit. All data is automatically transmitted through the mobile network to the FinMeas Online system. The battery-powered device can survive the dark winter months until the sun reappears and recharges the battery using a solar panel.
