PaveProf V2.0 High Speed Profilometer uses 3D laser sensors and high resolution Accelerometers to measure pavement profiles for applications such as surface roughness, texture and rutting at highways speeds to international standards.

Overview

The Pave®Prof V2.0 design consists of modular components and software - from a single laser and accelerometer system (for single wheel path IRI and Texture measurements) to the complete system consisting of up to 40 fully integrated lasers (for full transverse highway measurement). Let PaveTesting design your system to meet your requirements and budget.

Using digital Laser technology and high speed Accelerometers the Pave®Prof V2.0 has been proven to be reliable at speeds ranging from 15 to 120kmph to give accurate International Roughness Index (IRI) Measurements. Upgrading the system to our High Speed 110kHz laser gives the ability to measure Surface texture at a resolution of 1mm even when travelling at 120kmph.

The system is operated using a conventional computer and if required touchscreen and KeyPad operation enables single operator use. Calibration is easy to perform and can be completed in minutes. Data is streamed to the computer in various formats to meet your requirements. Output data can be saved in CSV or ERD format for easy download to PROVAL software. RAW data output gives the ability to replay your data back in your office for greater analysis. Pave®Prof Software is free for the life time of your system, this means continuous upgrades to meet new standards and system improvements.

Options

GPS option include standard Wired GPS for accuracy to within 5 meters. Alternatively using the NEMA standard any GPS system can be integrated to meet customers’ requirements including sub 1 meter accuracy. All data is then linked to GPS coordinates which can be used to precisely locate areas of interest within the data sets.
