Jan 22nd 2015 at 4:50 AM

Light weight deflectometers with Bluetooth are the construction industry’s latest game-changers, making soil compaction tests much more efficient because they can be operated wirelessly. This eliminates the need to position the testing computer beside the device, as the measurements can be transmitted via Bluetooth direct from the load plate to the computer, or even the measuring tablet or smartphone.

The Bluetooth technology used in the most advanced light weight deflectometers work seamlessly with voice navigation to make compaction testing much faster, more precise, and very easy to learn. The audio instructions can walk the user through the test performance.

With Bluetooth light weight deflectometers, users can prove and document compaction quality on site immediately. The technology allows for wireless transmission of measurements and tests with the press of a button. It is now so much easier to control the deflectometer with a smartphone or a tablet.Do you need to send test documentation to your clients? There’s no more need to print, as the results can be sent by email. Whereas older models of deflectometers were bulky and needed a lot of cables, Bluetooth deflectometers are cable-free and therefore do not get in the way of site testing. This revolutionary technology allows the user to work freely on the site.


It’s easy to see why Bluetooth light weight deflectometers are widely used in German construction sites. This technology optimizes internal quality control and saves both time and money. The fast and reliable connection and data transmission helps the contractors to complete projects much faster and more accurately.

Contrary to what you might think, Bluetooth light weight deflectometers are not necessarily expensive. Want to get true value? The secret is to purchase yours direct from the manufacturer to get the best prices. Some of the best manufacturers even offer detailed on-site training for your workers.

Be sure to purchase a Bluetooth light weight deflectometer that comes integrated with an easy to use Android app that let you control it via tablet or smartphone. The glass lid should be large and weatherproof to withstand the rigors of the construction site. The best deflectometers come with GPS systems (for satellite photo illustration) and built-in printers to allow instant printouts whenever necessary. Of course, it should have a USB flash drive to make data transfers much more convenient. It should likewise have internal memory to automatically store test data. Finally, it should come with a manufacturer warranty.

Advantages of Using Light Weight Deflectometer with Bluetooth Technology

Aug 23rd 2015 at 10:05 PM

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.
