Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST 5000 BLU

The TERRATEST 5000 BLU Light Weight Deflectometer for dynamic load plate testing was first presented at BAUMA 2013 Munich. Tests with the new Light Weight Deflectometer can be carried out without cable connection, the results is then transferred via Bluetooth from the load plate directly to the measurement electronics, a smartphone or tablet. No wires getting in the way!

TERRATEST 5000 BLU impresses with reliable data transfer, quick pairing and extremely powerful rechargeable battery feed. You can perform up to 2000 tests or 600 printouts with the powerbattery.

TERRATEST 5000 BLU Light Weight Deflectometer is particularly suitable for use on the go. Repairs of the socket of the load plate or of the measurement electronics – the typical “Achilles’ heel” of Light Weight Deflectometer – will no longer be necessary thanks to its wireless operation. NO WIRES, NO PROBLEM!

The socket of the load plate has always been the Achilles’ heel of traditional Light Weight Deflectometer with wire connection. Throughout the entire lifespan (15 years) of a Light Weight Deflectometer, the measuring cable has to be plugged into the load plate on the ground every time a test is being conducted. The forces that arise during the measuring process strain the sockets and cables over time. The conditions in a utility trench and road construction are generally an adverse environment for wires and sockets.

That’s why experts are choosing TERRATEST 5000 BLU Light Weight Deflectometer for dynamic load plate tests!

Our Light Weight Deflectometer in use – A short How-To

The lightweight deflectometer is the perfect test equipment for construction companies who perform dynamic load plate test for checking the compaction quality. The device offers a quick and easy way to perform exact measurements on site. It is used for different kinds of earthwork, civil engineering, road construction, pipeline construction, gardening and landscaping as well as for railway construction. Terratest also produces the medium sized weight deflectometer. This version of our product is perfect for working in confined spaces. Within just two minutes, even inexperienced users are able to learn how to measure, print and archive ground compaction quality data with this handy Light Weight Deflectometer. All TERRATEST® models are equipped with voice navigation and a GPS system. Voice navigation guides the user through the measuring process by way of easily understood announcements. This makes using the Light Weight Deflectometer a breeze.

How does the dynamic load plate test of Light Weight Deflectometer work?

Experienced and unexperienced users alike are guided through the measuring menu of our Lightweight Deflectometer. After each impulse, the settlement as well as the settlement graph will be displayed in mm on the screen of the measuring computer. After the third measurement impulse, the screen of the measuring computer will display the dynamic strain model, the Evd-value in meganewtons per square meter as well as the path/speed ratio (s/v value) in mm per second.

This easy procedure delivers exact data and can be performed in only two minutes. The Light Weight Deflectometer is thereby ideal to reduce costs for long waiting periods when relying on testing by specialized laboratories. Thus the expanses for a Light Weight Deflectometer often amortize within a couple of months.

Results measured by our Light Weight Deflectometer can be printed out or transferred to PC directly on site. This also includes time, date and GPS coordinates. By means of the new Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST® 4000 STREAM model, data can also be streamed directly from the measuring electronics to a smartphone or tablet. With this technology even a cable-based instrument can be updated and send the required data per e-mail to your client.

TERRATEST® 2.0 software assists the user by preparing a highly professional presentation of the report – including individual log, statistical analysis and a Google® Maps overlook for all measurements carried out by the Light Weight Deflectometer on the corresponding site. Using TERRATEST® 2.0 software makes documentation of tests protocols very easy and allows for a professional presentation.

At this time, more than 5000 TERRATEST Light Weight Deflectometers are being used in more than 60 countries all over the world to check compaction quality on construction sites. TERRATEST® Light Weight Deflectometer: This product stands for state of the art test equipment directly from an innovative German developer and manufacturer who guarantees you the best possible price.
