Continuous monitoring of geotechnical instruments will significantly to the value of the data collected for a small additional investment. Even at a rate of 3 readings per day, a continuous dataset will enable engineers to establish 'cause and effect' relationships between geotechnical behaviour and mining operations such as blasts and seismic activity. This in turn will generate confidence in the data and will result in higher return on investment.
The d1Logger is a small single instrument plug-and-play datalogger for YieldPoint digital instruments. The logger is powered with a single 9V battery and has memory for up to 10,000 readings. Data is downloaded using the USB download cable (purchased seperately) and the d-LOG software on any WindowsTM PC, laptop or Tablet (d-TAB). The data is downloaded as .csv file and can be imported easily into MineScope or Microsft Excel.
