Direct and Inverted Pendulums – HPS PENDULUM
A Pendulum is a very easy-to-use device designed to measure the horizontal movement of two different points on a vertical.
It is widely used in civil matters in order to measure structural movements, such as, for example, the movement of a dam’s crest with respect to its base.
It consists of a plumb-line which, following a movement or a deformation of the structure with respect to the vertical, makes the end of the invar wire shift horizontally, a movement detectable by a sensor.
Readings may be taken either manually, by means of fixed or removable optical devices, or automatically, using telecoordinometers.
Available in two configurations: “direct” and “inverted”.
