Jenlogix are pleased to announce that they are doing a roadshow in June 2019, with a specific focus on their cost-effective rapid Structure Health Monitoring solution (SHM). The SHM solution is supplied by San Lien, an instrumentation technology, engineering and construction company based in Taiwan.

Along for the several city tour will be Reid Chen, Automation Division Manager from San Lien and Dr Ding Cheng - Structural Engineer. SHM is a simple system designed to quickly enable owners to triage the structural health of their properties. Based on a unique algorithm the system calculates changes by using just 3 Palert+ seismometers, vertically aligned and installed in buildings on the ground, first and top floors.

This data is quickly processed in a controller to provide Rapid Structural Heath Diagnostics (RSHD). Data is also sent to the cloud-based software after an event and can be reviewed by engineers and building owners from any location. The controller can interface with alarms and activate a “traffic light” system on or around the building to inform the occupants on the health status of the building.

Regions to be visited during this roadshow are Wellington, Hawkes Bay, New Plymouth, Bay of Plenty, Canterbury, Nelson and Marlborough. If you have an interest in attending, or on just being informed about the details of these events, please contact Keith Swasbrook at Jenlogix Limited on 021 840530.

Dr. Ding Chen is a consultant in the San Lien Technology Corp., Taiwan, who has received a Ph.D. degree in civil engineering from University of Texas at Austin.  He has been an associate professor at Environmental Information and Engineering Dept., Chung Cheng Institute of Technology, National Defense University, Taiwan.  He has also been the department head of Environmental Information and Engineering Dept. during 2008-2010.

Ding Chen’s area of expertise is in Structural Health Monitoring, Earthquake Engineering, Impact and Explosion and Blast-resistant Design. Dr Ding worked as a consulting engineer on Taipei 101 – when built was the tallest building in the world from 2004 -2010.
