Wireless Tilt Beam
Tilt Beam sensors consist of aluminium metal bars of 1, 2 or 3 meters long on which is mounted a Wireless Tiltmeter. They are typically installed in a series so that the end of a bar coincides with the beginning of the next until it covers the required distance. The differential movements of the structure cause a different rotation of the bars and this shows the movements or differential settlements of the structure to be monitored. Installation is quick and easy without the use of wiring. As all Move Solutions' sensors, they are wireless devices and use the LoRaWAN communication protocol to send data to the Gateway.
The Tilt Beam device consists of a triaxial tilt monitoring sensor installed in the center of a steel tubular support. This stand can be 1, 2 or 3 meters long. Typically they are installed in series so that the end of one bar coincides with the start of the next until the required distance is covered. The differential movements of the structure cause a different rotation of the bars and this shows the differential movements or settlements of the structure to be monitored. Installation is quick and easy without the use of cables.
The three-axis wireless Tiltmeter sensor that detects data is extremely accurate and exceptionally stable. Variable and remotely configurable sampling rates, a rugged design and a battery life of up to 8 years make this wireless Tiltmeter suitable for many environments and solutions. The wireless Tiltmeters transmit accurate readings from the site via the LoRaWAN wireless communication protocol via a Gateway.
You can view and interact with your data online using the Move Cloud Platform. There are multiple data processing and correlation algorithms developed by Move. It is possible to calculate the deflection of the structure with respect to a baseline. It also mounts a temperature sensor to relate thermal excursion and static deformation. Ideal for static monitoring of railways, buildings, bridges or tunnels.

|Operation with programmed acquisitions:||Record of a tilt sample at a fixed cadence as set by the user (once every 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 30 minutes). Each sample of inclination is derived by averaging 16 seconds of observation. For each acquisition also the temperature is recorded.
All sensors are synchronized in time in order to sample the structure at the same time. Acquisition start time is aligned to multiples of the acquisition cadence starting from 00:00. Examples:
cadence is 2 minutes: 00.00, 00.02, 00.04, etc.
cadence is 5 minutes: 00.00, 00.05, 00.10, etc.
cadence is 15 minutes: 00.00, 00.15, 00.30, etc.
cadence is 30 minutes: 00:00, 00:30, 01:00, etc.

Easy installation of the Move wireless monitoring system
The installation of an entire wireless sensor system on site is quick and easy: simply mount each device with at least two screws on the structure you want to monitor and power the LoRaWAN Gateway. You can configure the entire system remotely, before, during or after installation, using your laptop or tablet. After assembly and setup, the Move wireless monitoring system will start measuring and you can start monitoring remotely.
Operation of the Move wireless monitoring system
The wireless sensor system automatically communicates the measurement data via LoRaWAN with the on-site Gateway which in turn sends the received data via 4G or LTE to the online servers. The Move Cloud Platform is the cloud-based web tool that allows you to access, view and export your measurement data and configure the settings of the entire sensor system. You can access the Move Cloud Platform 24/7 from any location or device around the world. One of the main advantages of the Move Cloud Platform is that it offers remote access to measurement data and allows remote configuration of all installed sensors. This saves time and labor. In addition, you can analyze the measurement data using processing algorithms included in the service. Perform complex calculations, correlations and analyzes automatically and effortlessly. With the touch of a button, you can export measurement data in CSV format. You can also easily configure alerts to multiple recipients who will receive threshold cross notifications via email.
- Easily install the entire system on the structure without the use of wiring.
- Configure all wireless sensors quickly and remotely.
- View real-time measurement data wherever you are, on any device, 24/7.
- Process the data collected through the implemented algorithms.
- Constantly monitors the operating status and signal quality of the system remotely.
- Customize your alarm notifications and receive overrun notifications by email.
- Optionally, you can integrate data on your platform using an MQTT bridge, FTP or through API calls.
