Applications / Solutions

Leveling and angular measurements are vital functions for precision equipment installation, machine setup alignments and metrology in many industries within the precision engineering cluster. Imprecise leveling a machine affects its structural stability thus severely reduces the accuracy, functional and quality performances of a machine/equipment. In fact, precision levelling, angle measurement and alignment tasks essentially involve 2-dimentional planes rather than conventionally known as two independent single-axis orthogonal lines reading an angle one-axis at a time. Dual-axis simultaneous angles display and real-time continuous tracking of tilted-plane angular readings are required to guide field engineers in aligning precision object/machine to a required position accurately, speedily and effectively.

Digi-Pas® pioneered world's-first 2-axis MEMS digital leveling instrument, sensor module and inclinometer (US granted patents) embedded with vibrometer offers superior performance with ability to operate in a very unforgiving/harsh operating environment (e.g. high shock/impact, temperature & water) which empower application engineers/scientists in eradicating constraints previously difficult or unable to do with traditional 'bubble' spirit level or conventional single-axis pendulum/servo-based/optical inclinometers.

With reference to user's testimonials, feedbacks, and from interacting with professionals and trade specialists in many countries over the years, countless valuable application information on "where", "how" and "why" Digi-Pas® 2-axis instruments and sensor modules have been used to simplify and speed up leveling/alignment/angle-setting tasks productively, with higher accuracy, improved quality and performance. The following are application samples in various industries for convenient reference. Many of these pictures are obtained resulting from our user's generous courtesy while others are provided for solely illustrative purpose.

Offshore & Energy Solutions

Digi-Pas® DWL-5000XY products are installed in the marine/off-shore platform to monitor in real time its two-dimensional tilt angles for safety control.

Large pipe laying in oil and gas and water treatment plants needs to be accurately adhered to industrial safety standard. Digi-Pas® DWL-2000XY & DWL-3000XY are able to fulfill the stringent requirements in aligning pipes to appropriate slope and elevation for equal force distribution.

Installation, commissioning and maintenance of solar energy panel tracking system are vital to ensure accurate photovoltaic panel’s angular orientation on dual axis, typically to optimize capturing of solar energy. DWL-5000XY sensor module with control box is integrated into the tracking system to monitor and precisely guide 2-axis angular position of the panels. External connected peripheral devices can be activated and conveniently programed using PC Sync software for triggering intervention whenever required.

Digi-Pas® DWL-680 Heavy Duty Waterproof class IP67 is used to setup drilling equipment in offshore oil & gas industry. DWL5000XY/DWL5500XY are used for coninuous monitoring platform tilt and magnitude of vibration in various wheather conditions.

Digi-Pas® DWL-600 Heavy Duty model is used for alignment of drill tools. DWL5000XY is used to guide drilling direction in realtime and continuous monitoring changes in vertical angular settings.

Digi-Pas® DWL-3500XY/DWL5500XY/DWL8500XY are used for marine repair and shipbuilding vessels in shipyard. Specifically used to indicate vessel's positional stability - heel angle and other inclinations in both static and dynamic states.

Digi-Pas® DWL-5000XY products are installed in the deep-sea commercial submarine to assist directional maneuver and control.

Other Solution

Digi-Pas® DWL-1000XY provides the advantage for a solution to measure vertical and horizontal axis concurrently when erecting steel-beam structures, typically in ensuring column bases are lined and level and columns are plumb. Precisely erecting the entire frame levelled with appropriate orientation is vital to ensure stability, strength and rigidity of steel structures.

Digi-Pas® DWL-200 Torpedo model is a relatively longer than cube level. It gives a better seating on a flat surface in metal workshops, woodworking, plumber piping installations, guttering etc.

The IP65 waterproof feature of Digi-Pas® DWL-680Pro is useful in drainage piping installation and repair works. Maintaining proper pipe elevation such as vertical position, horizontal slope and alignment between pipe ends maximize water drainage and prevent clogged drainage.
