Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST 5000 BLU

The TERRATEST 5000 BLU Light Weight Deflectometer for the dynamic load plate test was presented for the first time at BAUMA 2013 Munich. Tests with the new Light Weight Deflectometer will be carried out without cable, the results will be transferred via Bluetooth from load plate directly to the measurement electronics, a smartphone or tablet. No wire gets 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 the use abroad. Repairs of the socket of the load plate or of the measurement electronics, the “Achilles’ heel” of Light Weight Deflectometer, will no longer be necessary thanks to its wireless operation. NO CABLE NO PROBLEM!

The socket of the load plate has always been the Achilles’ heel of traditional Light Weight Deflectometer with cable connection. Throughout the entire lifetime (15 years) of the Light Weight Deflectometer, the measuring cable has to be plugged into the load plate on the ground, every time a test is being conducted. In the process shear forces arise, which in the long run strain the sockets extremely. In general, the site conditions in utility trench and road construction are an adverse environment for any kind of cable connection.

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

Light Weight Deflectometer – How to use

The lightweight deflectometer is the perfect test equipment for construction companies to perform dynamic load plate test for checking the compaction quality quickly and easiely in construction site in a very short time. It is used in earthworks, civil engineering, road construction, pipeline construction, gardening and landscaping as well as in railway construction. Terratest also produces the medium sized weight deflectometer which can be used for higher degrees of compaction. Within just two minutes, even inexperienced users are able to measure, print out and archive the ground compaction quality 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 announcements which makes using the Light Weight Deflectometer a breeze.

This is how the dynamic load plate test of Light Weight Deflectometer works: Put the load plate with the sensor on the ground you want to test and connect this to the measuring computer. Next, put the drop weight on the load plate. Switch on measuring computer by pushing the green button. Now, carry out three initial impulse first, followed by three measuring impulses. Simply follow the instructions of the voice navigation. Even unexperienced users this way are unequivocally guided through the measuring menu of 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 is the easiest way for users to furnish themselves the compaction proof using a Light Weight Deflectometer on the construction site. Test procedure needs only two minutes time. Extra cost and waiting phases caused by falling back on external testing laboratories are no more required, so expenses for a Light Weight Deflectometer often amortize within a couple of months.

Our Light Weight Deflectometer enables results to be printed out or to be transferred to PC directly on site, together with 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. This way, even a cable instrument from now on offers the possibility of sending required data by e-mail to the clientele without delay, furthermore simplifying operation as well. The 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 user will show test results in a very professional way.

More than 5000 TERRATEST Light Weight Deflectometers are working in more than 60 countries all over the world to check compaction quality on construction sites.
