Technology - DEX extensometer
DEX is a Sisgeo technology designed to monitor the displacement along the main axis of a special tube.
DEX is based on a special linear transducer able to detect with high accuracy the position of a magnetic ring installed on the measuring tube.
The DEX sensor is able to read the movements of the ring, generally caused by external forces.
DEX can work in vertical, horizontal or any inclined position.
The measuring tube is an ABS inclinometer casing that do not interfere with the magnetic field generated from the magnetic ring.
DEX-S is a combination of DEX and MEMS technologies that allows to measure 3D boreholes deformations.
