Get more jobs done with greater accuracy.
Have you been looking for a faster way to conduct dynamic cone penetration (DCP) testing? Say goodbye to the pen and paper and earn more money with Vertek’s SmartDCP kit.
Requiring less man power and increasing the number of jobs you can get done, the return on investment (ROI) for the Vertek SmartDCP kit is quick. 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.
Vertek’s SmartDCP promises to reduce the manpower required to collect soil behavior data via DCP, 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 Vertek SmartDCP kit can be mounted to most handheld 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 app and hardware combination makes your handheld DCP automated and will provide you and your client better field results and cost savings. The SmartDCP mobile app is free and available at the iOS App Store or Google Play store.
We also offer a competitively priced handheld DCP kit with the ability to add rod extensions for deeper investigations.
The Vertek SmartDCP app immediately provides real-time CBR%, depth change between blows as well as total depth of penetration with each data point.
Our SmartDCP system is compliant with ASTM standard D6951/D6951M-09.
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.
