New Deformation Monitoring System from Topcon
The solution is the result of a partnership between Topcon and VMT GmbH
Topcon Positioning Group has released Delta Solutions, its new deformation monitoring system. Utilizing a system of software and hardware components — Delta Link, Delta Log, Delta Watch, Delta Sat and the MS AXII total station — Delta Solutions is designed to provide accurate and reliable monitoring measurements and associated reporting for asset protection.
The system uses the Topcon MS AXII total station combined with Topcon Delta Watch software designed to monitor, manage and evaluate monitoring data as well as optionally trigger alarms.
“As standalone software, Delta Watch delivers accurate and reliable data in a variety of reporting formats to best fit a project’s needs,” says Ian Stilgoe, vice president of portfolio management at Topcon Positioning Group. “Data from the total station, GNSS receivers, leveling devices and sensors can be processed and analyzed individually or as a network-adjusted solution.
Communications options include Ethernet, Wi-Fi and a globally approved integrated cellular modem.
Accessed via a secure web portal, Delta Log is designed to provide an intuitive interface to manage observations, target types and measurement scheduling.
“Delta Log provides a simple platform for advanced functionality — unique Topcon features such as matrix detection are instinctively controlled through the software,” Stilgoe says.
Delta Watch includes the optional Delta Sat GNSS processing module, which allows for stand-alone GNSS monitoring or combined GNSS and total station network adjustments.
Topcon Delta Solutions are the result of a partnership formed between Topcon and deformation monitoring and tunneling specialist VMT GmbH.
