The SlideMinder Slope Monitoring & Warning System was developed in 2003 by engineers and geologists at the consulting firm Call & Nicholas Inc. to provide clients with a reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use slope monitoring alternative. 

  • SLOPE MOVEMENT ANALYSIS: Software displays measurements and graphs displacement, velocity and system data.

  • ACCURATE REAL-TIME MEASUREMENTS: Measures movement to 0.01cm and monitors throughout slope failure without damage to the extensometer.

  • AUTOMATED WARNINGS & ALARMS: On-site warning beacons, automated text and email alerts.

  • PRECIPITATION MEASUREMENT: Mounted rain gauge records precipitation at the monitoring location.

  • MINIMAL SITE PREP: Small tripod footprint with no required line power.

  • SCALABLE: Start with as little as one extensometer and add more as needed. Additional units are easily added after initial server setup.

Call & Nicholas Instruments, Inc. has become the leader in Wireline Extensometer Slope Monitoring equipment.

With hundreds of units deployed to date, SlideMinders are reporting the critical data needed for Engineering Design and Operational Safety at locations around the world.

Built in Tucson, Arizona, SlideMinders are deployed worldwide in a variety of diverse and often harsh conditions. Self-contained, self-charging, self-reporting and easily deployed, SlideMinders gather and report critical data remotely using radio and/or local Wi-Fi networks to a local server for analysis and warning evaluation.  SlideMinders can be easily added to the network and controlled using our proprietary web-based server software, called OREAD, which is included with the initial order of SlideMinder extensometers.

Our dedication to providing our clients with a superior and intuitive product at an affordable price has earned us a reputation as an essential component for any slope monitoring project.
