The SlideMinder Slope Monitoring & Warning System is the affordable and flexible slope monitoring solution you've been looking for. Accurate, reliable and reasonably priced, the SlideMinder System was developed by the geotechnical consulting firm Call & Nicholas, Inc. in 2003 to be a cost effective and user friendly method of gathering highly accurate slope monitoring data for engineering and safety purposes.
Unchecked, ground movement in and around open-pit mines, quarries, and dumps can damage or destroy expensive equipment, cause injury and lead to lost production time. SlideMinder addresses these hazards by providing real-time monitoring of ground movement via wireline extensometers, allowing operators to react and mitigate the impact of a potential or ongoing slope failure.
Whether operated as a stand-alone system or in conjunction with existing monitoring and safety equipment, the SlideMinder Slope Monitoring and Warning System is the essential budget-friendly tool for monitoring slope movement in modern surface mining and quarrying.
600' (183cm) of specialty wire provides strength with minimal thermal expansion
MANUAL EXTENSOMETER SYSTEM with Strobe
Strobe provides visual alert when user-specified displacement occurs allowing for remote operation.
core logging, Simplified
Acculogger Core Goniometers were developed to give mining engineers and geologists a reliable core logging tool that provides precise measurements in the quickest and most repeatable manner possible. Clear, easy-to-use and durable, the Call & Nicholas Instruments, Inc. Acculogger is an essential component to your core logging projects.
Dip (Alpha) Angles:
For Standard goniometers, the Beta angle is measured by placing the flap directly onto the open fracture and reading the dip from either side of the goniometer. The Pass-Through work similarly but have the split flaps to accommodate the measurement of intact features, such as bedding or veins, without need of breaking the core.
Dip Direction (Beta) Angles:
Dip direction angles are easily determined with either our Standard and Pass-Through goniometer models. The AccuLogger's easily readable 360º face plate ensures the collection of a reliable measurements with ease.
