Geosense VWLSS-200 VW Setningssystem

Geosense VWLSS-200 setningssystem med svingende streng(vw)-teknologi brukes til å overvåke vertikale setninger i jord og fyllinger, både på land og under vann. Med automatisk avlesning og mulighet for sanntidsovervåkning i Cautus Web, gir instrumentet et svært godt bilde av setningsutvikling over tid.

  • Manuell eller automatisert avlesning av svingende streng (vibrating wire) signal
  • Påvirkes ikke av barometertrykk
  • Reservoar kan plasseres utenfor anleggsområdet


The Geosense VWLSS-200 Vibrating Wire Liquid Settlement System is used to monitor settlement or heave in soils and other structures such as embankments, earth and rockfill dams.

The main components are a reservoir (single or multiple), liquid-filled tubing and a vibrating wire pressure transducer cell mounted on a plate or, for borehole application, attached to an anchor.

The vibrating wire sensor is attached to a settlement plate at the point of estimated settlement. The sensor is connected via two liquid-filled tubes which are connected to a reservoir located on stable ground. As the transducer settles with the surrounding ground, the height of the column is increased and the corresponding higher pressure is measured by the transducer. Settlements are calculated by converting the pressure to millimetres of liquid head.

The pressure sensor transducer uses a pressure sensitive diaphragm with a vibrating wire element attached to it which is mounted inside an evacuated and hermetically sealed housing. Various housings are available to suit application.

The transducer operates on the principle that a tensioned wire, when plucked, vibrates at its resonant frequency. The square of this frequency is proportional to the strain in the wire.

Fluid pressures acting on the diaphragm causes a deflection of the diaphragm which then changes the tension in the vibrating wire, thus altering the resonant frequency of the wire.

Vented System: The pressure sensor is vented so that it is automatically compensated for changes in atmospheric pressure.

Sealed System: The pressure sensor is sealed and therefore independent atmospheric readings should be taken and compensations made accordingly.

VWLSS-200 vibrating wire settlement sensors may be read by the VW2106 or any vibrating wire readout device and may be readily data logged using Campbell Scientific data logger, the Cautus Logger CL1 or any other data loggers with vibrating wire interface modules.

Vibrating wire transducers output a frequency signal, and are therefore insensitive to resistance changes in connecting cables caused by contact resistance or leakage to ground.

Cable may be readily and simply extended on site without special precautions. Gauges may be read up to 1000 metres away from their installed location without change in calibration.
