ImpactSentinel is based on a wireless system in order to monitor rock falls, mudflows or avalanches in guard nets (q.v. GEOBRUGG). It enables the permanent and reliable monitoring of the condition of the net, as well as the transmission of alarm messages directly to a remote data receiver or a cell phone per SMS in case of transgression of a specific limiting value. Thus, potential accidents with personal injury and economic damage can be prevented effectively.
Produced for monitoring and protection of roads – railways – traffic buildings – residential subdivisions – hydroelectric power station – oil-/gaspipelines
ImpactSentinel saves costs for the regular inspections of guard nets and establishes on the basis of the sensor function additional safety for the operator.
ImpactSentinel is qualified and functional tested by the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL, Birmensdorf (an ETH institute).
