The robust LVDT displacement sensor from Inelta can detect changes in bridge statics at an early stage by reliably detecting smallest displacements at critical load points. Inelta‘s special LVDTs for static monitoring feature an unprecedented compact design with a length-to-touch ratio of 1:1.5.

Precise bridge monitoring with LVDT sensors

Initial situation

The number of bridges in need of rehabilitation has increased significantly in recent years. In addition to unexpected material fatigue or undercutting of foundations, the causes are often found in overloading due to increasing traffic and inadequate monitoring of structural statics. In order to detect damage and hazards to bridges at an early stage, reliable monitoring of bridge statics is needed under outdoor conditions.
