Development, production and installation of automated measuring systems and measuring tools

Development, production and installation of automated measuring systems

The department provides specialized automated measuring systems for measuring and monitoring vertical deformations of building real-time. This system, HYNI, is used in nuclear power plant Temelín. It's based on hydrostatic levelling. Its components are sensors connected to a computer with specialized software. The measuring range of +/-10 cm and its precision is characterized by standard deviation < 0.01mm.

Development and production of geodetic instruments, cartographic tools:
  • sets for measuring geometric parameters of crane rails
  • drawing triangles in scales 1 : 1000/2000, 1 : 2880, 1 : 500 and others according to requests.
  • custom rulers
  • integrated shrinkage meters for scales 1 : 500, 1 : 1000/2000 and 1 : 2880 on special non-shrinkable foils
  • fastening screw with universal thread for measuring instruments
  • convergent instruments with invar tapes
