A VERSATILE SOFTWARE FOR VARIOUS MEASURING TASKS
The software wylerDYNAM is ideal to measure and display inclinations, profiles, etc. of static as well as of moving objects. With wylerDYNAM all sensors and measuring devices of the ZEROTRONIC- and of the BlueSYSTEM- family can be operated. wylerDYNAM samples and analyzes the data of the connected sensors. The user can easily transform the measured values, refer them with each other and display them in various forms.
The integrated software modules simplify a number of measuring tasks without the need of mastering software programming. Simple tasks like computing the difference between two sensors or more sophisticated tasks such as the integrating values can be easily performed. The measured and calculated data can be displayed in numerical or graphical form on a computer monitor; can sent to a connected printer or saved on a hard disc. It is possible to save data in wylerDYNAM in such a way that they can be used to compare different measurements or to combine measurements taken at different times. Furthermore periodical measurements can be performed, which allow long-term monitoring of objects.
Since wylerDYNAM is used successfully together with our SEATRONIC-system to align various platform on vessels, this specific application is already included in wylerDYNAM.

SHIP BUILDING / DETERMINATION OF DEVIATIONS IN PARALLELISM
Precise inclination measurement on unstable bases as they exist on a moored vessel on the water are a huge challenge.
On a large ship moored in a harbor, the deviations from parallelism for several platforms must be determined. Based on this, the platforms shall be aligned afterwards. This should be done as efficiently and precisely as possible
RESEARCH - DEVELOPMENT / MEASUREMENT OF A ROAD SURFACE
Measuring task / Goal:
Based on the above mentioned information a standard road surface shall be recorded in a form which enables the integration in a software. This software will control and monitor a testing station in a way that that car test can be performed under laboratory conditions fully integrating the road surface profile. In order to establish this standard road profile, several dozen kilometres long, in an efficient way, the profile shall be monitored and recorded in the longitudinal direction by the aid of inclinometers during driving.
CIVIL ENGINEERING / MONITORING OF BRIDGES
The deformation of a highway bridge must be continuously monitored, not only during construction but also afterwards, when the bridge is put into service.
In order to get significant values regarding the deformation of the bridge, several points on the bridge must be monitored simultaneously.
PRINTING INDUSTRY / ADJUSTMENT OF STANDS AND PRINTING CYLINDERS
A modern multi-color printing system consists of several separate units, one unit per primary color. To achieve high-quality print products, these units must be precisely aligned and adjusted when assembled.
Each single color unit provides horizontal and/or vertical reference faces, which must be used during the manufacturing process in the production plant as well as for the adjustment of the printing line. The positions of the reference faces must be adjusted in accordance to each other, measured, and a record must be printed. The positions of the printing cylinders must be precisely aligned to each other (horizontally).
CONTINUOUS MONITORING OF AN OBJECT, WHICH IS EXPOSED TO STRONG TEMPERATURE CHANGES
On a radar installation which is exposed to significant temperature changes as well as to direct sunlight, precise, reliable and continuous inclination measurements should be carried out.
All high-precision instruments are sensitive to temperature changes. Significant temperature changes inhibit precision measurements and can even prevent them.
Precise and continuous monitoring of the inclination of the base of the radar station.
ALIGNMENT OF AN INJECTION MOLDING MACHINE WITH WIRELESS INCLINATION SENSORS
Each injection molding machine must be properly aligned during commissioning. This process uses 5 precision spirit levels and requires 2 technicians. One of them is reading the spirit levels and the other one is adjusting the 6 supports. This is an iterative and tedious work, since all 5 spirit levels must be re-checked after every adjustment. The available height on each of the 5 measuring points is limited to 120 mm.
The customer is searching for a more efficient solution for this process during in-house commissioning as well as for the commissioning
at the customers premises. If possible, the adjustment should be done by one single technician. To assure that no instrument is accidentally pulled down, a wireless solution is favored.
MONITORING OF A WATER INTAKE TOWER AT A DAM
The stability of a water intake tower is critical to the safety of a dam. The operator of the dam therefore requests continuous monitoring of the tower’s inclination.
Measuring task / Goal:
The inclination of the water intake tower, that is its change in attitude, is to be monitored and registered continuously. The inclination sensor is to be mounted stationary, and must have excellent zero-point stability. The measuring values are to be registered and evaluated in the central station of the dam at a distance of about 500 m
MONITORING OF A HISTORICAL BUILDING IN KOREA
MONITORING OF A HIGH RACK WAREHOUSE / Part 1
Automatic high rack warehouses can reach very large dimensions:
80 m length, 45 m width and 30 m height are no exceptions. Despite these dimensions and despite the high speed of the transportation system, each bin must be placed very accurately at its predefined location. In order to reach such accuracy, the alignment of the racks is of key importance. The exact verticality of each rack has therefore to be ensured. Already smallest deviations will change the distance to the transportation system and could cause errors. The bins could get blocked and get damaged or even fall.
Measuring task / Goal:
The verticality of each rack in the high rack warehouse must be monitored permanently.
HEELING MEASUREMENT ON A SHIP
Part of the homologation and certification of a ship is the measuring of the heeling: The buoyancy is measured as a function of the load and specifically of the maximal load. By pumping water into the ballast tanks, or by loading containers, the heeling of the ship is changed. Thereby certain limits of heeling may not be exceeded.
On a ship which is at moored in a harbor, the inclination, or heeling, should be measured during a loading test.
POSITIONING OF A HEAVY PART WITH AN OVERHEAD CRANE
In a large production hall, a heavy part shall be positioned in the correct height with an overhead crane in order to allow a stress-free mounting. First tests show that the building is not stable enough: Depending on the weight of the part, vertical offsets are measured which are larger than the required positioning
In order to achieve the required accuracy, the bending of thebuilding respectively of the overhead crane should be measured.From these values, the vertical correction of the crane should be calculated.
INCLINATION MEASURING OF A SATELLITE DURING A SYSTEM TEST IN A TEMPERATURE VACUUM CHAMBER
Testing of a satellite in a temperature and vacuum chamber under conditions like in space: temperatures from –30°C to +60°C and vacuum.
Level all systems of a satellite to each other. A precise surface on the satellite serves as horizontal reference point. The inclination of this horizontal reference must be within ±0.001 mm/m.
ADJUSTMENT OF A CEMENT OVEN DRIVE
Cement is manufactured in a so-called turn-tube oven. The oven itself is a about 50 to 70 m long, slightly tilted steel tube with a diameter of 4 to 5 m which turns around its longitudinal axis (max. 20 rpm).
The inclination of the cement-oven drive- gear wheel (diameter approx. 1.5 m) should be the same as the inclination of the turn-tube oven gear wheel (diameter approx. 6 m). The required accuracy is 0.01° = 0.2 mm/m.
MONITORING OF 6 TOWERS AT A DOUBLE SLUICE
The sluices are over 100 years old and consist of two parallel sluices. The vertical gates put a heavy strain on the six towers, which is the reason why continuous monitoring is required.
Each of the six towers should be permanently monitored with suitable inclination sensors along the X- and Y-planes. The measuring values should be transmitted online to the local water authority, thus facilitating to alarm in a timely fashion.
ZEROTRONIC SENSORS IN STRONG MAGNETIC FIELDS
Measuring task / Goal:
The user of a particle accelerator would like to accurately measure and adjust the parts of his accelerator. The strong magnetic fields allow only the use of non-magnetic material. Only instruments that are not sensitive to heavy magnetic fields can be used.
MONITORING OF SYNCHROTRONS
CIVIL ENGINEERING / MONITORING OF VERTICAL MOVEMENTS IN NATURAL GROUND
Subject / Measuring task
When excavating tunnels passing under e.g. existing railway installations, or roads where several owners are involved, the question of liability is raised regarding potential damage done to these structures.
The owners then often ask for a permanent monitoring of the site to get early warnings as well as proof.
MEASUREMENT AND CERTIFICATION OF THE TORQUE-RESISTANCE ON AN ENGINE-SHAFT
The torque-resistance of an engine shaft is decisive for the reliability and durability of the engine. However, to measure this resistance for long shafts is a challenging task.
The torsion of an engine-axis mounted on a testing-rig with a base of 12m x 12m must be measured precisely by recording the change of the twist-inclination and by putting it in relation to the applied torque.
The requirements regarding long term monitoring of dams are continuously increasing. Where it was enough earlier to carry out periodic measurements, today more and more permanent monitoring is required.
The changes in inclination in both directions (mountain <-> mountain and water <-> air) of a dam shall be monitored continuously.
The requirements in railway construction are increasing continuously. Specifically, high speed tracks put very high demand on track geometry and therewith on track construction. A tamping machine requires exact information about the condition and position of the track ahead to make the required corrections and to work precisely and efficiently
The positioning errors of the track shall be measured with a mobile measuring unit. The measuring data shall then be used by the tamping machine.
CALIBRATION OF ROBOTS
The precision of an industry robot is directly depending on the precise alignment of each single axis.
Measuring task / Goal:
The offset of each axis has to be measured not only in
production, after mounting the robot, but also after the
installation at customer site. These offsets are then to be known and compensated by the process control system.
