Instruments by type

Built by our team of seasoned instrumentation experts specifically for geotechnical monitoring projects, the RSTAR Affinity system comprises loggers, gateways, secure communications for data telemetry…

Inclinometers measure underground lateral displacements within soil and rock. Adequate ground support is essential for almost any major construction, whether it be a dam, retaining wall, pit mine, or …

RST Instruments’ Data Loggers nodes and hubs collect and store data from a wide variety of geotechnical sensors and gauges.

GPS/GNSS sensors provide accurate three-dimensional displacement and tilt measurements for monitoring deformation in extreme climates.

Piezometers are pressure-sensitive, submersible measurement sensors designed to detect pore water pressure and ground water levels.

Tiltmeters are used to measure and monitor changes to the inclination and vertical rotation of structures.

Settlement systems are used to monitor changes in the ground surface and subsurface in terms of settlement and heave or to monitor the efficiency of preconsolidation of soft soil formations.

Extensometers are used to measure the displacement or general deformation of rock, soil, and concrete structures in a variety of geotechnical applications.

Crack Meters are employed in multiple geotechnical construction applications to monitor movement in structures along surface cracks or construction joints.

Strain gauges and strain meters are used for measuring strain in a range of materials, including steel and concrete. These gauges record and monitor deformation due to load stress that could affect th…

Load cells are used to record and measure the force of compressive and tensile loads in various industrial applications.

Pressure cells, are used to measure total pressure in soils, rock and concrete and at the interface between soil and natural or concrete abutment structures, as well as on foundation contacts.

RST Instruments’ custom-manufactured thermistor strings provide temperature monitoring that is both reliable and easy to implement.

RST offers a full range of outdoor rated signal cables to connect our vibrating-wire piezometers, load and pressure cells, crack meters, joint meters, and other instruments.

RST Instruments offers many solutions for reading, displaying, and logging data from its instruments.

RST Instruments’ grout monitors provide real-time display of key grouting parameters to enhance the understanding of site conditions.

RST Instruments offers the full suite of vibration monitoring instruments for civil engineering and strong motion sectors and safety industries.

RST Instruments’ product line evolves over time. While these products are no longer available to order, product pages with technical and support information are available for clients to review.

I’m very happy with the quality of the instrumentation and technical support from RST, as always. They worked with us from the initial stages of the project to ensure that we were fully prepared and equipped to use the RSTAR network for the first time. They delivered everything within the tight project time frame to ensure that there were no delays on site, and the submersible tilt meters looked like new even after over twelve months of being submerged in Thames water!
