DMS monitors the dynamic movement of civil and geotechnical structures. Its capabilities include measurement of position, displacement, strain crack opening and rotation. As a multi-point dynamic monitoring system, it’s capable of measurements similar to those generated by strain gauges, LVDT’s, tilt meters or Total Stations.

The Dynamic Monitoring System 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.
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.
The Dynamic Monitoring System 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 reduces monitoring costs and personal risk as you are able to monitor dynamic behaviour from a distance, often without physical contact of the asset. Additionally, this prevents the need for closure permissions or interruption to industrial operations.
Our Dynamic Monitoring System provides you with the data you need, whether your application is in a controlled laboratory environment or an outdoor structure with complex access needs.
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.
Imetrum’s video monitoring service, Dynamics, is a cost efficient solution for specialist measurement services.
