New features enhance Trimble 4D Control v6.2
Trimble has added several new features to its 4D Control v6.2, including a Geotechnical edition that analyzes and stores data from geotechnical sensors. It incorporates all the hardware and software necessary to monitor assets for stability and assess things like the risk of landslides or the movement of infrastructure.
The new edition is designed to streamline the installation and deployment of automated monitoring workflow for geotechnical-only setups where no total stations and GNSS are required. The software also has alignment-based monitoring analysis and reporting relative to an object such as a tunnel, road, or bridge.
The Trimble 4D Geotechnical comes complete with sensor-agnostic file import capabilities, sensor alarming and gateway-based sensor connections, and data management and analysis tools for asset monitoring activities. Along with expanded support of a variety of industry sensors, the Trimble 4D Geotechnical edition is optimized to support streaming data from two additional sensors: a wireless laser-tiltmeter and a wireless triaxial tiltmeter.
