SmartDCP for Hand Held Units
This innovative new product promises to reduce the manpower required to collect soil behavior data, while also improving accuracy and simplifying field logistics. The system achieves this by:
- Automatically counting blows
- Recording the change in depth with each blow
- Tracking the total depth of the probe
- Recording data on Apple iOS and Android smart devices via Bluetooth 4.0
- Eliminating the need for a ruler, pencil, and paper
- Transferring data via e-mail or USB from the smart device
- Desktop application to organize and plot raw data
The App is free and available at the iOS App store or Google Play to install on your personal smart phone. The App and hardware combination makes your hand held DCP automated and will provide you and your client better field results and cost savings. We also offer a competitively priced hand held DCP kit with the ability to add rod extensions for deeper investigations.
The SmartDCP kit can be mounted to most hand held DCPs on the market and is easily operated by a single person. The smart DCP kit is protected under U.S. Patents No. 7,617,718, No. 8,033,163 and No. 8,485,024.
The SmartDCP kit can be mounted to most hand held DCPs on the market and is easily operated by a single person. The Return On Investment (ROI) for this Smart kit is quick no matter how you look at it. Users have repeatedly doubled the number of completed tests with increased accuracy when compared to the traditional manual data collection method of using a scale and paper log.
The Vertek SmartDCP App immediately provides real time CBR%, depth change between blows as well as total depth of penetration with each data point. Completed tests can be graphed on the smart device in the field for quick analysis or sent via email to the investigation lead to review in the office. Our SmartDCP system is compliant with ASTM standard D6951/D6951M-09.
