Advantages of Using Light Weight Deflectometer with Bluetooth Technology

Posted by Frank Georg Schulz on August 21st, 2015

Now that light weight deflectometers are being increasingly used in the construction industry; manufacturers are looking for bigger and better ways to incorporate new technology in its use. Light weight deflectometers with Bluetooth capabilities are among the latest game-changers in the industry, enabling more efficient use of the device. With Bluetooth technology, soil compaction tests can now be done wirelessly, eliminating the need for long set-ups and bulky testing computer devices on site. Modern light weight deflectometer that feature wireless technology allows to be transmitted through Bluetooth, for measurements, from the load plate directly to the computer or a measuring tablet device and even a smartphone.

Even more advanced versions of Bluetooth enabled light weight deflectometers are equipped with voice navigation features, which allows for seamless, faster, more precise, and easy to perform compaction testing. With the use of audio instructions, even novice users can easily learn how to use the device properly as they are thoroughly walked through the entire process. This eliminates long learning curves and the need for extensive training when using light weight deflectometer on a site.

Bluetooth light weight deflectometers allow users to prove and record/document soil's/pavement's compaction quality immediately and right on site. With the help of Bluetooth technology, the device can wirelessly transit measurements and test results with a simple press of a button. Advanced devices even feature specialized software applications for different types of devices such as computers, tablets, and smartphones, which make documentation and reporting easier as clients demand. These programs also make it easier to control the testing equipment with everyday devices.

Light weight deflectometers have come a long way from their bulky, wired existence. Today, they are cable-free and a lot easier to use as no computers or wires get in the way of on-site testing, revolutionizing the way soil quality is tested and evaluated within a project site. This kind of freedom optimizes not only the testing and evaluation process but internal quality control. With fast and reliable data transmission, contractors and designers can complete projects on hand a lot faster and with more accurate information that prevents errors in calculation and design in the long run.

Bluetooth light weight deflectometers are not as costly as people might think. If you want to get the best value for your equipment investment, be sure to purchase direct from manufacturers or at least a legitimate distributor so you can get reasonable prices that you can afford.
