Jewell Lily Tiltmeter

Ensure that the THREAD is turned on and connected to the Lily via one of it's Device ports

1.  Navigate to the Network Module

2.  Press the  button directly on a THREAD to add a Device to it. If your THREAD does not appear here, you may still need to Add Your THREAD as a Connection.

3.  You may also add a device from the button in the Devices & Sensors Section 

4.  Begin by typing in "Lily Tiltmeter" and select the name once it autocompletes in the search boxScreen_Shot_2017-03-09_at_5.04.23_PM.png


5.  Type in the Connect Code of the THREAD that the Device will be connected to. It will already be pre-filled if the  button on the THREAD was used. 

6.  Next, select the THREAD communication port that the device is plugged into, Device 1 or 2.

7.  Press     to write the settings. Your Lily Tiltmeter should now connect to sensemetrics indicated by a green icon Screen_Shot_2017-03-09_at_3.44.02_PM.png


Sensor Configuration


Once configured, the Tiltmeter sensor will populate beneath the Lily Device and can be viewed by clicking the drop down arrow.


Click on any of the nested sensors to access the sensor configuration settings.



Sensor Orientation

The X/Y Axis will always be fixed relative to the Tiltmeter as seen below



Reference Date - 

The reference date will specify the first date used when calculating delta metrics indicated with the ∆

Specify the Reference date to use ∆ Delta calculations

Device Azimuth - Northing/Easting

The Tiltmeter does not inherently know North/East. In order for North/East to be correctly represented, you will need to specify the device azimuth. This is done by measuring the angle from North to the Reference indicator in a clockwise direction. 

Reference Indicator - The Y Axis represents the sensors Reference Indicator (Shown below)

Specify the Sensor Azimuth to use Northing/Easting calculations

Structure Azimuth

This field will allow you to orient the Transverse/Longitudinal Axis in any desired direction. It is useful for finding movement in the direction of a specific structure or any point of reference. See the Structure Azimuth Section on instructions on how to properly set it up.

Specify the Structure Azimuth to use Transverse/Longitudinal calculations

Gauge Length

Enter the length of the structure you wish to extrapolate tilt over to calculate a displacement at to top. This will use trig calculations with the Tilt X/Y angles to create a X/Y Vector at the top of the structure. 

Specify the Structure Height to use X/Y calculations and allow vectors in Map View.
