Wireless data transfer
Achieve more comfortable CPT operations and higher production rates with A.P. van den Berg’s Optocone.
The Optocone provides wireless transmission of the CPT data by means of light conduction. An optical adapter behind the cone takes care of conversion, digitalization and transmission of the measuring signals. The light is received by an optical receiver (camera) that is positioned above the CPT string on the upper bridge of the penetrometer. Advanced electronics ensure the recording of measuring signals even whilst adding-on new CPT rods. The signals from the optical receiver are combined with the depth information in the Icontrol datalogger.
The Optocone is suitable for all onshore CPT units and any CPT depth by adding optical repeaters as required.
A.P. van den Berg’s track record for wireless CPT data transmission is unequalled in the industry.
