Geotechnical Instrumentation & Performance Monitoring

DST has signed an exclusive Canadian Distributor Agreement with Encardio rite Electronics Pvt. Ltd. for geotechnical, structural and groundwater instrumentation and performance monitoring equipment.  

With advanced in-house expertise and access to sophisticated monitoring instrumentation, DST is your trusted go to for reliable instrumentation solutions.

DST’s team of geotechnical engineers and geoscientists has extensive project experience and proven results in the planning, installation and commissioning of monitoring instrumentation programs.  We have been servicing this industry for 40 years. 

Today we are now an exclusive distributor for some of the most reliable and sophisticated equipment in the industry: piezometers, inclinometers, settlement gauges, etc. all supported by a cloud based data hosting and management system. 

  1. Distribution.  Working with the client to source instrumentation required for any project across Canada.  And, we ship worldwide. 
  2. Planning.  Here to provide expert guidance to prepare a custom monitoring program.
  3. Installation.  Here to ensure remote monitoring networks are installed properly the first time. 
  4. Service.  A trusted adviser there to interpret the measurements and provide recommendations to help mitigate the geotechnical risks for their project.


We understand that each project is different and work with the client to provide the support they need.  As a team, we specialize in developing project specific monitoring instrumentation programs and can work with you through each project phase, or be your source for quality equipment.

Our priority is to work closely with clients to understand the unique parameters first, helping us to identify the optimal monitoring solution to meet the projects requirements.

Contact us for more information on instrumentation programs for monitoring stresses in pipelines, underground excavations, tunnels, stability of underground openings, pit slopes and tailings dams, stability of embankments, stability of excavations and effects on adjacent structures, monitoring systems for load testing steel, concrete, driven and piles.



Monitoring instrumentation is particularly significant for challenging projects such as tunnels, slopes, and excavations taking place next to sensitive structures.  The key parameters that geotechnical instrumentation measures are structural and soil deformations, stresses acting on structural elements, and groundwater pressures and inflows.

Relying on a combination of monitoring methods using inclinometers, piezometers, tiltmeters, strain gages etc., data is used to determine trench stability, guide wall stability, ground and wall movement, basal stability, cross-lot bracing, or advanced information such as axial forces and earth stresses.

We understand that geotechnical instrumentation is complicated which is why engaging a consulting team that knows and understands monitoring equipment options, monitoring instrumentation strategies and methods, and how to interpret parameters of interest is extremely important to ensuring the long-term protection of your project.  


DST is the exclusive Canadian supplier of Encardio rite instrumentation and data monitoring solutions. 

Established in India in 1966, Encardio rite is the world leader in geotechnical, structural monitoring, and ground water instrumentation and performance monitoring equipment.

The group has a physical presence in 8 countries and its globally acclaimed products are used in more than 60 countries worldwide.  They have been providing clients with sophisticated and reliable monitoring equipment for over 50 years. Their excellence is reflected through our key projects, Delhi metro, Dubai metro, Doha metro, Marina Bay Sands, Abu Dhabi Underground Sewer System, Tehri Dam, etc.




R&D division

We lead in technological advancements with cutting-edge software, instrumentation, monitoring and manufacturing techniques to address the dynamic requirements of the evolving construction and environmental sectors.


Consistent quality services with reliable products, in compliance with the ISO-9001:2008 quality systems conforming to international standards.


State-of-the-art manufacturing and testing facilities, equipped with the best of tools and technology including electron beam welding and load cell calibration facilities up to 15,000 kN. A wide range of sensors are hermetically sealed resulting in IP-68 protection that result in sensors being almost completely resistant to effect of corrosion and ingress of moisture and water, making them best suitable for long term monitoring.
