The SuessCo 6D-Sensor is easy to install and provides precise data about the condition of the monitored component directly into the SuessCo Dashboard at any time. In addition, the sensor simultaneously monitors component movements in 6 dimensions: Movements in the X,Y and Z axis are measured, as well as rotations of the component in the Euler angles α, β and γ.
Conventional measurement methods have several problems:
Analog methods such as "crack spy" or "crack ruler" are merely scales from which changes can be read. Measurement and documentation must be carried out manually by a person on site. This is time-consuming, expensive and the frequency of measurement as well as the accuracy are limited.
The SuessCo 6D-Sensor always provides precise live data, documents them permanently and prepares them graphically. You get a data situation as if the Rissspion is evaluated 24/7 by one person and the data is recorded. But all this wirelessly, conveniently and over long periods of time.
Mechanical methods like "vibrating wire sensors" measure only one dimension per sensor. A measurement of 3 dimensions requires complex setups with multiple sensors, whose installation is complex and expensive.
Both sensors provide permanent high-quality measurement data. The 6D-Sensor provides data on component displacements as well as on twists. Furthermore, the 6D-Sensor can be extended by additional external sensors and covers a wider range of applications. The 3D-Ssensor provides data on the displacement of the components, a change in the angles to each other ("tilt") is not recorded.
The sensor assembly consists of two parts: A sensor part and a reference magnet. The sensor part detects the movements of the reference magnet without contact. The communication module for transmitting the data is already integrated in the sensor housing. In addition, a power supply is required (battery box or external power supply).
SuessCo 6D-Sensors enable the monitoring of movements or twists of components in relation to each other. For example, cracks on buildings, the movement of bridge parts and any other movement can be detected digitally, precisely and permanently.
The sensor offers a high measurement accuracy of ± 50 µm for the longitudinal axes (x, y, z) and ± 0.2 ° for the rotation values (α, β, γ). The sensor also has an integrated temperature sensor with an accuracy of ± 0.5°C. Measurement accuracy is ensured by magnetic field technology, which has no drift or wear.
The sensor can detect the reference magnet both below and above the sensor, resulting in a wide range of mounting options. The sensor does not require any particular positioning in space and can be mounted both vertically and horizontally.
SuessCo sensors are easy to mount because they have a large measuring range and are self-leveling. In addition, the zero point of the measurement can be re-set in the SuessCo Dashboard after mounting. The sensor does not need to be precisely aligned because it is self-leveling. The magnetic field technology allows to detect the position and rotation between two objects, even without a special alignment to each other.
The measurement interval can be set individually in the dashboard. The minimum measurement interval is two minutes. We recommend a daily measurement as the maximum measurement interval. The transmission interval to the dashboard can be set synchronously with the measurements. However, longer intervals are also possible, which can extend the battery life.
Yes, this is possible. You can export the measured values both as a file (for example as .CSV) or connect to your system via an API. Please contact us for more info about API connection - email@example.com
Limits and alarm thresholds can be set for all dimensions. The alarm function makes it possible to receive notifications when the measured values exceed or drop below certain thresholds. The thresholds can be set individually, depending on the application and needs. The notifications can be sent by e-mail or SMS.
As a service provider with multiple customers and projects, you can conveniently manage all projects under one interface. In addition, you can create limited access for specific sensors, projects and sensors for your customers through the rights and user management. The multi-client capability ensures that your customers can only view their own data.
The integration of additional sensors is possible in principle. The SuessCo Dashboard can receive and display sensor data via APIs. This enables the mapping of complex projects with multiple sensor dimensions under one interface.
