It all started in 2021 for Basetime with the launch of the Locator One, the autonomous device for the monitoring of settlement plates. When placed on the settlement plate, the Locator One collects data regarding the settlement with accuracy to the millimeter. Measurements can be conducted anywhere between 1 to 24 times a day, after which the results are immediately displayed in the Basetime dashboard or your own management system when using an API. This gives you reliable insights into the movement of the settlement plate. You are always aware of each minimal movement, from behind your desk!
Accurate, safe and durable
The Locator One not only measures the height, but also the horizontal plane. The measurements have an accuracy of up to 5 mm over the Z axis and up to 3 mm over the X and Y axes. Because the data is collected at fixed intervals, you can predict soil subsidence and settlement and take preventive measures if necessary. Deploying the Locator One saves surveyors the trips to the construction sites. This not only reduces the risk of accidents (especially on-site), but also CO2 emissions. In addition, pollutive batteries are a thing of the past, as the devices run on solar energy and a supercapacitor.
Development in full swing
Presently, we are monitoring more than just settlement plates. The Locator One is perfect for monitoring objects, earthworks, sheet pile walls, geological shifts and soon even ice floes. Clearly a very versatile device, which also takes us beyond our country’s borders. We are already active in several countries, including Germany, Sweden and Australia. The export of the Locator Ones has been made possible with the help of enthusiastic Basetime dealers, all of whom have a lot of geodetic and sensor knowledge.
We are not done yet though, with many more new developments coming along in 2023. Are you curious? Then keep an eye on us!
