Sensor Interface / Crack Sensor Node

Crack Sensor Node

The Crack Sensor Node is used to monitor structural movement including pile separation, crack movement and expansion joint movement.

The Crack Sensor Node interfaces to a linear displacement sensor. It's high precision sampling circuit powers the sensor and reports its measurements through Senceive’s wireless communications network to a Gateway. It has been successfully used in many applications, including those measuring:

  • Crack movement
  • Pile separation
  • Structural movement
  • Expansion joint monitoring
