Top 3 Benefits of Remote Vibration Monitoring

As residential neighbourhoods continue to flourish construction companies, developers and project managers are under increasing pressure to minimise the risks of damage to nearby properties and structures, reduce nuisance complaints and adopt the most ethical working methods. 

Activities such as Demolition, piling and other construction works generate vibrations that if not managed can cause structural damage and nuisance to residents of properties.

There are a number of vibration monitoring solutions available such as handheld vibration meters, shock and vibration data loggers, vibration monitoring systems (without wireless communications) and vibration monitoring systems (with wireless communications). Caption Data specialise in GSM enabled vibration monitoring systems, and with roaming SIMs they always connect to the mobile network with the strongest signal.

Reduced Risk of Damage

Realtime vibration monitoring allows you to continue work safe in the knowing that you will be alerted if and when vibration levels reach unsatisfactory levels

Compliance with Standards

The ability to set alarm thresholds for vibration levels helps to guarantee compliance with requirements set out by national standards, authorities and tendering guidelines

Other Side Benefits Can Include

  • Reduced need to visit site as data is collected by the vibration monitoring system and transferred via mobile phone networks
  • Reduced travel costs in time and money
  • The ability to manage more projects
