The Micro-SHM is a standalone acoustic emission (AE) system designed to provide a cost-effective, reliable, indoor & outdoor solution for structural health monitoring (SHM) and process monitoring. It is ideal for isolated objects, such as bridge components, pressure vessels, pipelines, slow-speed bearings, and machine monitoring. The remote structural monitoring system is a powerful monitoring tool, with data management and smart analysis capabilities, complete with multiple AE and parametric data recording.
The Micro-SHM is an adaptable system, with various configuration options for specific structural health monitoring needs. It uses system-on-a-chip technology (SoC), and either Power over Ethernet (PoE) or wireless configurations. SoC allows for less power, lower cost, and higher reliability than the multichip systems that it replaces. Since PoE allows the Micro-SHM to use a single Ethernet cable for power, communication, and time synchronization, the system reduces cabling and installation time and optimizes communications. Wi-Fi or cellular options are available for wireless remote monitoring.
