Non-Nuclear Soil Density Gauge

Product Code

UTS -1280           Non-Nucleer Soil Density Gauge

Non-Nuclear Soil Density Gauge is used for detecting density of Soil specimens with non nuclear type. UTS-1280 is fully equipped with a touch screen and user friendly graphical menu interface, running Microsoft Windows silently in the backround for flowless operation, easy software are upgrades and enchanced user support.

The instruments general specifications are;

  • Full colour graphics driven interface, 480 x 640 VGA touch screen display with LED backlight for easy visibility.
  • Displays GPS status, available battery voltage, low battery and date/time,
  • Rugged case design made from aluminum, powder-coated gloss black with orange reflective vinyl graphics increasing driver awareness to road workers at night
  • Data Management Feature, quickly access, can be downloaded and deleted project data,
  • Required files can be downloaded to UTS-1280 via. USB,
  • Fast, reliable, accurate, and repeatable in real time, User Friendly, in-process, cost effective tool for any user,
  • The most inpoftant point is; Non-Nuclear means no Badges or Lisances and no storage or transport concerns.
OPERATIONAL FEATURES
