Dynamic Monitoring System

Ruggedised DMS system for field use, integrating controller, screen, power supplies, keyboard and mouse as well as camera and lenses.

Dynamic Monitoring System (DMS) utilises Imetrum’s world leading digital image correlation (DIC) algorithms and Video Gauge™ software to track natural features or installed targets of assets.

DMS is a multi-point dynamic monitoring system. Its capable of measurements similar to those generated by strain gauges, LVDT’s, tilt meters or Total Stations.

The system is easy to deploy and provides real time data at sub mm resolution at sampling rates of up to 500Hz.

DIC can be used for many measurements, including identifying locations of high strain, measuring global deformation and scanning areas to identify the early onset of cracks.

Accurate and reliable

DMS is benchmarked by many companies, including the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

Its measurement capability is often described as having the benefits of a non-contact device, with the resolution of a contacting one.

A complete solution

The portable field system case houses the controlling hardware, a monitor, mouse and keyboard. Additionally, it has storage for multiple cameras and lenses. This makes DMS an easily transportable self-contained solution that is setup within minutes.

Flexible use for all applications

DMS can be used to monitor the dynamic movement of civil and geotechnical structures. Its capabilities include measurement of position, displacement, strain crack opening and rotation.

DMS can track natural features. This eliminates the need to directly access the structure and results in more efficient and safer working practices. It reduces the need for possession orders and traffic management, eliminating the risks of working at height or over water.
