The Dynamic Monitoring System (DMS) uses DIC algorithms and Video Gauge™ software to track natural features or installed targets for short-term monitoring.

Utilising the non-contact approach, the system can increase safety and reduce monitoring costs. The portable field system case houses the controlling hardware, a monitor, mouse and keyboard. There is also additional storage for multiple cameras and lenses. This makes the DMS an easily transportable self-contained solution that is setup within minutes.

Able to measure displacement of a wide variety of structures

DMS monitors the dynamic movement of structures for short-term measurement campaigns. 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.

Benchmarked by many companies, including the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and James Fisher, the measurement capability of DMS is often described as having the benefits of a non-contact device, with the resolution of a contacting one.

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.

The 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.

DMS 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.
