Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST 5000 BLU for dynamic plate load testing using cable or Bluetooth
technology:TERRATEST GERMANY is
offering two models of the Light Weight Deflectometer (LWD), also known as
Light Drop Weight Tester (LDWT), Portable Falling Weight Deflectometer (PFWD)
or Dynamic Load Plate Test.
TERRATEST devices are fully equipped with GPS system, printer,
high-performance rechargeable battery, USB drive, text input function and
PC-software. Our equipment combine the best of both worlds: absolutely

TERRATEST is the world leader in the development and manufacturing
of the Light Weight
Deflectometer. We always adopt new technologies to make our
products more efficient and user friendly. This is why we have developed the ” TERRATEST
5000 BLU “, an innovative product with Bluetooth capability, voice
navigation and Android-App controllability.
5000 BLU for
dynamic load plate testing was first presented at BAUMA 2013 Munich. Tests can
be carried out without cable connection, the results is then transferred via
Bluetooth from the load plate directly to the measurement electronics, a smartphone
or tablet. No wires getting in the way!
5000 BLU impresses
with reliable data transfer, quick pairing and extremely powerful rechargeable
battery feed. You can perform up to 2000 tests or 600 printouts with the
TERRATEST 5000 BLU is particularly suitable
for use on the go. Repairs of the socket of the load plate or of the
measurement electronics – the typical “Achilles’ heel” of Light Weight
Deflectometer – will no longer be necessary thanks to its wireless operation.
NO WIRES, NO PROBLEM!
The socket of the load plate has always been the Achilles’ heel of
traditional Light Weight Deflectometer with wire connection. Throughout the
entire lifespan (15 years) of a Light Weight Deflectometer, the measuring cable
has to be plugged into the load plate on the ground every time a test is being
conducted. The forces that arise during the measuring process strain the
sockets and cables over time. The conditions in a utility trench and road
construction are generally an adverse environment for wires and sockets.
That’s why experts are choosing TERRATEST 5000 BLU Light Weight Deflectometer for dynamic load plate

Control your Light Weight Deflectometer easily with smartphone or tablet.
Instead of printing the test protocol you can now also send it via email to
Spoken audio instructions lead the user through the test procedure.
When set to ”PTM“ (continuous measuring mode), tests can simply be started
by latching the drop weight into the release mechanism. It is no longer
necessary to operate the testing computer, which can therefore be placed away
from the Light Weight Deflectometer.
Highly visible LEDs indicate the test procedure. The Falling Weight
Deflectometer works user-friendly and independent of the testing computer.
