ASC sensors not only monitor construction machinery or rail networks, but also in the context of so-called structural health monitoring Structures, At the new Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge, CS series current signal sensors help authorities identify the impact of a ship impact on the piers.
They can be used to determine the comprehensive dynamic properties of the bridge structure. The longest pier in the world traverses a heavily traveled waterway over a length of around 55 km and therefore has to be especially protected against collisions with tankers. In the summer of 2017, the bridge operator placed an order for ASC CS-1611LN triaxial capacitive acceleration sensors, each of which was installed laterally in the heads of the bridge piers. The sensors have a measuring range of +/- 5 g, a sensitivity of 4 to 0.16 mV / g and a current signal output from 4 to 20 mA. The choice fell on this series, because the sensors guarantee a lossless signal transmission even with long cable lengths, as is usual with bridges.
