The RENO FD probe, the operational hub of this system, is installed on a micropile that is planted in the riverbed upstream from the bridge pier that is to be monitored.
It consists of:
- An accelerometer
- A data acquisition card
- A GSM-GPRS I/O modem
- A thermo-hygrometer
- An inclinometer
The hydrometer is installed on the bridge on a cantilever mount.
The micropile is made of a stainless steel profile.
