Trimble introduced the latest version of its core real-time monitoring software—Trimble 4D Control software.
Version 5.0 provides new features that enable users to streamline real-time structural monitoring system deployment as well as simplify the connection to geotechnical sensors.
Trimble 4D Control software enables project stakeholders to monitor critical infrastructure such as dams and bridges along with mines and buildings surrounding construction sites and tunnels.
Robust and powerful, Trimble 4D Control software provides unparalleled movement analysis as well as extensive support for a wide variety of monitoring sensors—from total stations to piezometers and crack gauges to GNSS reference receivers. In addition, multiple monitoring sites can be managed from a single, customizable platform that enables visualization, performs rigorous analysis and provides alerts, which are essential for real-time automated monitoring applications.
“We are committed to delivering the most comprehensive monitoring solution that enables users to reduce installation time and improve efficiency,” said Lisa Wetherbee, business area director for Trimble Monitoring Solutions. “Configuring sensor communications previously took hours and now only takes a few minutes. Setting up and operating a real-time monitoring system is now easier than before, making it a preferred solution for a wider variety of monitoring projects.”
Faster Project Set Up with Simplified Geotechnical Sensor Communication
Trimble 4D Control 5.0 introduces support for Worldsensing’s Loadsensing wireless monitoring system. This allows users to rapidly connect and configure geotechnical sensors from a variety of manufacturers with hundreds of sensor models. It simplifies the configuration process for users, delivering real-time data streaming from the geotechnical sensors to Trimble’s 4D Control software. Loadsensing long-range and low-power wireless nodes are an ideal connectivity solution for complex monitoring scenarios.
Unique Seismogeodetic System Processing
Version 5.0 also includes an updated seismogeodetic data processing module that simplifies the setup when using Trimble’s Kestrel™ seismogeodetic system as part of a real-time monitoring deployment. With this new version, Trimble T4D Control makes it easy to use the enhanced satellite-based RTX corrections capabilities of the Kestrel system, giving structural engineers the detailed information required for real-time monitoring projects where high-quality, real-time seismic data is critical.
Loadsensing enables industrial companies to connect and wirelessly monitor infrastructures in remote locations. The data acquisition system is the industry reference for wireless geotechnical monitoring as it’s currently used to monitor over 50.000 sensors worldwide. Loadsensing is compatible with most geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring sensors and may be integrated with various data visualization software.
