Structural Monitoring is a market that really takes advantage of the strengths of our remote monitoring systems. Our products are designed for robust environments: they are autonomous, with long lasting battery powered wireless units, on board modems with fully roaming international SIMs. Data is seamlessly transferred to our secure data servers and by using the CDLSmartHub you are able to manage your systems, receive alerts and reports, view trends, and turn data into information and knowledge that you can act on.

With regulations and standards [DIN, ISO, BS etc.] specifying limits and measurements for everything from buried pipework to whole structures, and different velocities across different frequency ranges for different types of buildings and at different places in the buildings, and with processes defined for data capture depending on whether the “events” are sinusoidal, complex, transient, random, etc., to say it is a complex field is an understatement! Never has it been a truer statement that “data does not equal information and information does not equal knowledge”.
Introducing the RDL//Vibe
So whether it is long term monitoring of iconic structures like the Roman Catacombes and the impact of ground borne vibrations, or life critical structures like London’s flood defences, or Trinity House lighthouses that may be subject to random impacts, wave and wind loading, or commercial groundworks on housing construction, or road traffic bridges exposed to “bridge bash”, or renovation of sensitive building structures, our on-line & real time structural monitoring allows clients to turn their data into information and take immediate remedial action.
[tab title=”Temp / Humidity” icon=”no” iconsize=”icon-regular”]
We have a huge number of systems around the world, monitoring everything from the drying regime of water damaged buildings, to the internal climate of historic buildings, to food manufacturing processes, to storage of military electronics. Common applications of remote temperature and humidity monitoring systems include:
Introducing the RDL//1000
With up to 256 low cost battery powered wireless sensors per Base station and a range (line of sight) of 500m, the ability to monitor multiple structures or at multiple points on a single structure, over a local area (1km) becomes really cost effective. All the data is managed through a single gateway to the CDLSmartHub where all the sensors can be managed, graphed, alarms set and managed, management reports and dashboards created.
A range of wireless sensors are available each with a capacity for up to 4 PT100 (3 wire) temperature sensors, or combined Relative Humidity / Temperature flying lead sensors or Wood Moisture Equivalent / electrical resistance probes – there are plenty of options to choose from.
[tab title=”Miniature data loggers” icon=”no” iconsize=”icon-regular”]
We have been distributing MSR data loggers throughout the UK since 2008. In which time we have supplied data loggers to the UK MOD’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) for assessing aircraft structural usage, to the Centre for Biological Engineering at Loughborough University, and many other notable organisations.
With a range of up to +/-200g and a battery life of up to 5 years these miniature data loggers will take 1600 shock measurements per second in all three axes. With additional optional temperature, humidity, pressure and light sensors and a capacity for 4 additional external sensors via analogue inputs, they have the capacity to store over 1 billion measured values. Waterproof due to their IP67 rated anodised aluminium cases, these have been hugely successful everywhere from Military, Aerospace, Logistics & Transportation, Museums and historic buildings, academic institutions. MSR Data loggers are sold in more than 30 countries worldwide.
