OFITECO provides permanent instrumentation for structures, which due to special features, their construction process or structural configuration, need continuous monitoring.
The most common monitoring parameters consist of rotations of components, thrust pressures, control of displacement in any direction, measurement of temperatures and obtaining thermal gradients, wind speed and direction, deformation measurement using extensometers and other techniques, accelerations and obtaining vibration frequencies.
We have teams with extensive experience in the field of structural engineering for that purpose, combining analysis based on calculation with effective instrumentation plans, correlation of the various measurement points and parameters to be measured.
To implement this instrumentation, various types of sensors are used, such as clinometers, pressure cells, load cells, rebar strain gauges, thermometers, strain gauges, accelerometers, displacement transducers, wind vanes and anemometers.
We also have cutting-edge continuous automatic recording equipment so that high-frequency dynamic tests can be conducted
