The Alberding A08-MON sensor is used for the detection of slow changes such as subsidence due to
mining influences or the monitoring of embankments. The system is also suitable for the detection of
continuous and seasonal movements of structures. The A08-RTK sensor is also essential for real-time
In the standard configuration, one measurement value (3D) per hour for the GNSS antenna is generated.
The achievable accuracy for the hourly solution depends on the observation conditions (number of satellites,
multipath effects, distance to the reference station, etc.) and is about 1-2cm. The simultaneous generation
of 4-, 12- and 24-hour solutions achieves accuracies in the range of a few millimetres.
In the version with solar power supply, the A08 Monitoring System delivers energetically autonomous, precise
measurement data without manual intervention, all year round in almost any weather.
Fields of application:
Subsidence measurements of the earth's surface
Monitoring of embankments
Monitoring of buildings
Systematic measurements and permanent monitoring to detect significant displacements
and changes in object geometry. Monitoring mass movements (e.g. landslides, surface
subsidence, volume changes in an open cast mine or glacier flow) as well as structural
movements of bridges, dams and tall buildings, etc. are just a few examples.
Permanent monitoring of environmental parameters, such as temperature, humidity, soil
moisture etc. by connecting external sensors to the GNSS system.
