Earthquakes can not be forecasted or predicted. The primary damages at buildings, plants and infrastructure, and especially secondary damages caused by fire, explosion and pollution are a high risk for human beings and environment.
The risk increases by earthquake hazard, density of population and industry as well by the vulnerability of buildings, lifelines and industry.
Higher risk industry and lifelines get a basic design including the estimated additional earthquake load of the location. This design is based on standards such as the German KTA 2201, the European Code 8, the US Regulatory Guide or the Uniform Building Code.
BARTEC SYSCOM`s seismic instrumentation measures continuously the vibration level at the sensor location and provides alarms if limiting values get exceeded. Based on these alarms immediate inspections can be initiated or high risk processes can get shut down. The automatically performed analyses compares design with measured values and allows further decisions. The video below provides you with an interesting application of our seismic instrumentation:
Stationary and robust measuring sensor for contactless temperature measurement at high ambient temperatures.
Leak control in buildings with electronic devices or other valuables is an elementary part in housing surveillance and protection.
Undetected leaks may cause substantial damage:
Over 30 years of expertise in electrical heat tracing allowed us to develop tools and instructions, offering the best solution for every thermal requirement.
Installation and operating costs as well as local technical requirements and regulations are always taken into account.
Our Design Guides for parallel heating cables allow the user to design a fully functional ATEX or HazLoc-certified trace heating system in just a few steps.
The temperature class is determined using the product classification method.
For more complex designs of parallel and serial heating circuits, we have further developed our design and configuration software Heloc Pro.
In addition to determining the temperature class according to the product classification method, it also uses the system approach based on our self-regulating and series cable system certificates.
