Distributed Data Acquisition and Control Systems
Gantner Instruments Q.series is a distributed measurement and control system. Its innovative design offers the maximum flexibility; each Q.series module may be randomly installed close to the actual point of measurement and connected via high-speed serial interfaces. This not only reduces cabling complexity, but also allow a highly synchronized measurement that is less prone to noise due to shorter sensor cables runs.
Q.series systems are available in a wide variety of packaging styles, designed for multiple tasks. Q.series housings range from compact and distributed DIN-mount units, to high density 1U and 3U rack systems, to robust, portable systems designed for mobile applications. One common hardware platform with multiple housing options allow maximum application flexibility.
All Q.series systems come with a test.controller for data synchronization, concentration, and communication to a host system via an integral Ethernet interface. Additional communication and storage options are also available to support specific application requirements.

AVONGARD are the originators and global suppliers of gauges for the monitoring of cracks in buildings and civil engineering structures.
AVONGARD Tell-Tales are precision gauges that consist of two plates which overlap for a part of their length. The bottom plate is calibrated in millimeters and the top plate is transparent and marked with a hairline cursor in the form of a cross.
As the crack opens, or if vertical movement occurs, the cursor moves relative to the calibration scale. The opening or closing of the crack is then recorded on the crack record sheet supplied.
