The COMPATROL® technology from Weber MT, the first continuous compaction control system for walk-behind soil compactors. And this is the way COMPATROL® functions:
A sensor is installed to the base plate of the soil compactor. During compaction, this sensor measures changes in the vibrational behaviour which relates to the soil’s stiffness. The result is indicated to the operator on a scale of light-emitting diodes in the integrated display.
If, during further compaction passes, no additional diodes light up the operator knows that maximum compaction has been achieved.
The advantages of COMPATROL®:
- Thanks to continuous compaction control, no area remains uninspected. The system allows assessment of compaction uniformity and reveals and eliminates weak points.
- Cost and labour savings, because less rework and fewer compaction passes are required.
- The scale of light-emitting diodes is easily understandable for the operator.
The newly developed COMPATROL®-2.0 combines proven compaction control with the advantages of an engine protection.
If engine oil pressure, engine temperature or air filter restriction is outside of the predetermined tolerance ranges corresponding diodes will light up on the display and the machine (engine) shuts-of. The operator is warned that a failure has occurred. The machine can now be checked in time, i.e., before serious damage occurs.
COMPATROL® 2.0 is delivery for the soil compactors CR 6, CR 7, CR 8 and CR 9.
