Customers now able to automate readings from Sisgeo’s newest digital sensors as Worldsensing continues to expand integrations
Barcelona, Spain, 25 May 2020:
Worldsensing has announced a new firmware release as part of its growing partnership with the leading geotechnical instrumentation manufacturer Sisgeo.
The move means Sisgeo customers can now enjoy automated readings when using Sisgeo’s version 3 digital protocol sensors in combination with Worldsensing’s leading wireless solution for geotechnical monitoring, Loadsensing.
The new firmware is being issued as standard on all Loadsensing digital nodes, which are used widely across the mining, construction and rail industries.
It guarantees interoperability with Sisgeo borehole-profile in-place inclinometers, tiltmeters, rail deformation systems, extensometer probes, extenso-inclinometer probes, liquid settlement systems, load cells and multipoint borehole extensometers, amongst others.
“Our battery-powered Loadsensing nodes lead the market in terms of compatibility with digital sensors. The self-powered nodes eliminate the need to install a solar panel at each monitoring point,” said Bernat Trias, product director at Worldsensing.
“This integration further extends our lead in being compatible with the widest possible range of geotechnical instruments and monitoring sensors,” he added. “We will continue to invest in further integrations to ensure all customers can work easily with our Loadsensing solution.”
Matthieu Laville, Worldsensing sales director, said the firmware upgrade reflected a longstanding partnership with Sisgeo, which includes joint deployments in key projects such as the Forrestfield Airport development in Australia and the Grand Paris Metro in France.
“In this industry, the most important thing about partnership is trust and efficiency,” Matthieu adds. “Sisgeo is a fantastic company to partner with, and I really hope to be able to offer more connectivity options to their instruments in the future.”
Sisgeo’s sales director, Vincenzo Caci, said Worldsensing’s investment in integration was critical to the evolution of industrial IoT technologies. “The cooperation with Worldsensing is a good solution for several applications,” he commented.
“A smooth integration means Worldsensing’s engineers work closely with us to understand our technical requirements and specifications, so the Loadsensing platform can offer our customers the highest levels of compatibility and interaction with our sensors and systems.”
The new firmware release is available immediately and is being shipped now with all Loadsensing digital nodes.
Sisgeo was founded in 1993, inheriting the abilities of SIS Geotecnica, a leading company in Italy in the geotechnical field.
Over the years, Sisgeo has distinguished itself thanks to a tight and highly motivated working group, which has devoted itself with passion and creativity to the design and manufacture high-quality instruments to meet the needs of civil engineering.
