The measuring principle is similar to that of an extensometer, where the relative displacement between the head and a fixed point/anchor part is measured. The measuring anchor consists of a hollow rock bold anchor, with an integrated 1 to 4-point mini extensometer. Each measuring rod is fixed internally to different depths. By this way the displacement of the fixation points relative to the anchor head can be measured.
In addition to the standard version with a nominal load of 250 kN, measuring anchors with a nominal load of 350 kN can be supplied as an option. The maximum number of measuring points is four (usually in the quarter points). The version with 4-fold displacement transducers is only possible with 250 kN anchors. As the anchors are delivered in one piece, the maximum length is usually 9 m for transport reasons, in exceptional cases 12 m.
Potentiometric sensors and vibrating wire transducers are available as displacement sensors. For design reasons, the latter are only possible for single measuring anchors.
We supply the complete measuring anchor in the desired design. Our technicians are also happy to carry out the installation on site. If an automatic measurement data acquisition is desired, we plan and deliver optimized solutions and accompany our customers until commissioning.
