Position Partners has announced it will now be distributing Senceive’s FlatMesh wireless and mains-power-free monitoring tech in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

Senceive is a UK-based company specialising in wireless geospatial monitoring technology for the construction, mining and rail industries.

The company’s flagship product is the FlatMesh system – a mesh-networked sensor array consisting of a series of very small sensors with specially patented fixings designed to attach to any surface.

These nodes can be re-used at multiple locations.

The sensors are encased in hardened aluminium enclosures and work collaboratively to generate data that Senceive says is 99.9 per cent reliable. The sensors require very little maintenance or setup and have a battery life of up to 15 years.

The sensors are able to measure a wide range of variables including deformation, longitudinal settlement, strain, slippage and other ground movements.

"No matter how large or complex the job, Senceive’s FlatMesh technology can be tailored to create a highly reliable and cost effective solution," Position Partners business development manager Heath Low says.

"Having successfully installed Senceive on a number of projects in Australia, we are confident this technology is ideally suited to our local markets and that we have the skills and expertise to support customers with all their condition monitoring needs."

The FlatMesh system is already widely used across the UK and Europe in major infrastructure maintenance and construction projects, including ongoing maintenance of London Underground tunnels.

"A good example of just how easy and robust this system was to deploy, is in the monitoring of busy tunnels for London Underground," Low says.

"One particular project illustrates this particularly well:  On one 100m section with two tunnels, LU needed to monitor – in real time and in a highly precise and stable manner – the impact of urgent and extensive repair work needed due to soil erosion and cavities created by water leakages in the tunnels.

"Hundreds of nodes had to be deployed in a matter of minutes at the start of the shift and then moved as works progressed along the tunnels. Senceive is the only system on the market that could excel in those conditions," Low adds.

"This hugely successful and award winning project has led to many other deployments in both LU and national UK rail assets.  There are today more than 5,000 sensors deployed on the UK rail network alone."
