FAQ#074 – Which kind of datalogger is necessary to read a SISGEO digital sensors?

The sensors are read connecting the end cable to a Modbus Master unit (i.e. OMNIAlog or miniOMNIAlog) with RS-485 interface (DCE, Half duplex, no Echo) able to manage communication with SISGEO Modbus RTU communication protocol. SISGEO’s communication protocol is available for the release upon request. The power [W] of power supply must be chosen according […]

FAQ#073 – Which is the maximum number of digitized sensors (RS-485, Modbus), the maximum number of chains and the maximum length of cable in a RS-485 network?

Last update: October 2021 All the SISGEO digitized sensors utilize a RS485 interface with Modbus protocol. 1.The maximum number of digitized sensors in a RS-485 network are 247 (theoretical) 2.The maximum number of digitized sensors chains that is possible to connect to Modbus master unit (as OMNIAlog or miniOMNIAlog) are 4. 3. About the maximum […]

FAQ#025 – How get good readings with inclinometer probe?

A good practice for getting good readings with inclinometer probe is to follow these simple operations: – Use the same probe for each survey, if possible; – if you must use a different probe, be sure to note the serial number of the probe used for each survey, so any necessary corrections can be made […]

FAQ#024 – How can we keep efficiently the inclinometer operating cable?

A good practice for the inclinometer users is to follow these simple recommendations: – when you connect the inclinometer operating cable to the probe, avoid overtightening the nut, since this will flatten the O-ring and reduce its effectiveness; – use a pulley assembly. It protects the inclinometer operating cable and provides a good reference index; […]
