Matrix+ the wireless and battery vibration monitoring system FAQ

What does the Matrix+ Vibration system do? The sensors monitor for vibration levels at high speed and will count the amount of ‘vibration events’ over a given period. When the sensor reports into the CDLSmartHub™ , alerts can be generated via sms/email to configured recipients. Each sensor can be named in the platform which will…

Vibration monitoring and IoT

Vibration monitoring and IoT  CDL has a long heritage of monitoring for vibration events, applications have been wide and varied to say the least. From monitoring the effects of waves on a Lighthouse in Cornwall, to monitoring for potentially damaging vibration levels on a 4.6 billion Year old meteorite at the Natural History museum. More regular applications include mainly monitoring construction…

Damp Social Housing, a Nightmare for Tenants and Landlords!

The Damp “Stats” and Why You Should Read On Nearly 11,000 tenants have claimed compensation for damp, leaks, and damage in their council homes. Local authorities in England have paid out more than £35m in compensation and legal fees. The latest local government budget data shows £1.7bn a year earmarked for maintaining and repairing council…

We’re picking up good vibrations from Building Engineer

Thank you to the team behind the Building Engineer, the journal of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) for accepting our contribution covering the story of how continuous vibration monitoring of a demolition site in central is helping to protect a church and glass house.  And a special thanks to Carol Langham for all of…

The Nano ULTRA-Vibe for low frequency vibration monitoring applications

Many applications of vibration monitoring equipment require low frequencies to fully understand the effects of vibration on properties and structures, from nearby disturbances. Typical Geophones and vibration monitoring systems measure Peak Particle Velocity with a frequency range from 4.5 Hz to 100 Hz. This can result in underestimated and inaccurate low frequency vibration recordings of…
