At a Glance

The CS9400 Simple Profiler is a single track system that can be used on different vehicles. The CS9400 ships and stores in a reusable container.

 

Vehicle Mounting

The CS9400 will mount to any 2 inch hitch receiver tube on the front or rear of the host vehicle. The laser position can be adjusted along the transverse dovetail. The distance measurement interface quickly attaches to the vehicle’s rear wheel using a supplied set of collets.

 

Multiple Track Reporting

The CS9400 has the patented ability to report dual wheel tracks side by side. Profiles are collected separately in either direction and then are automatically aligned in Profiler V3 software. Roughness results and all other measurements are presented just as if the data was collected with a dual track profiler. Up to 3 parallel tracks are supported.

 

Core Attributes

  • Low cost, easy to ship and install on different vehicles
  • Works as a lightweight or high speed system depending on host vehicle used
  • Flexible wheel lug collets attach distance DMI to different vehicles
  • Reusable container for storage and shipping
  • Multiple wheel path reporting of profiles collected in either direction
  • Collect data up to 70 mph (112 kph)
  • Meets AASHTO E950, M328, R054, R056-057
  • Meets or exceeds all Class I requirements of ASTM E950
  • 1 inch (2.54 cm) sampling interval at all collection speeds
  • Features LMI Technologies’ 5 kHz Gocator wide beam lasers for asphalt and concrete pavements
  • ±5g rated Accelerometers with 0.0001g accuracy
  • Proven ability to replicate wavelengths of ~0.25 feet (7.62mm) in excess of 760 feet (231.6 meters)
  • All sensors and electronics removable for reuse on an SSI CS8700 Lightweight Profiling System

 

Compliance & Equipment

  • Complies with all commonly used agency specifications
  • Equipped with industrial grade sensors and connectors
  • Core electronics manufactured in an ISO 9001 facility
  • Rugged touchscreen computer on all systems
  • Custom docking station for computer swivels for access by driver or passenger
  • Operates from host vehicle’s 12 volt power supply

 

Operation, Training & Support

  • One person operation
  • Speed range: 5-70 mph (8-112 kph)
  • Operating ambient temperature range: 32° to 110° F (0° to 43° C)
  • Moisture: profiling system components impervious to moisture (but quality of data degrades on wet pavement)
  • Worldwide multi-lingual onsite operator training available
  • Automatic software updates with SSI Profiler 3 v2016
  • In field replacement of portable, modular components
  • Warranty and rapid response customer support on all profiling system components and operations

 

 

Software

  • Windows 7/8/10 Professional Operating System
  • Easy calibration instructions for bounce test, laser verification, accelerometer and distance calibrations
  • On screen visual aids and fast reporting of profile results
  • Support for Google Earth, Google Maps and Microsoft MapPoint
  • Navigate to locations within profile data using real time GPS Tracker and navigational/mapping capabilities
  • User selectable parameters for English and Metric units
  • Real time data display of profile trace, distance, GPS and IRI values
  • Electric Eye data triggers on each side of system function at 30+ feet (10+ meters)
  • User programmable keyboard shortcuts
  • “Continuous Collection” software suspends collection below 5 mph and resumes when speed exceeds 5 mph
  • Pause areas integrated into collection. View paused areas separately or exclude
  • Multiple Profile Indexes: IRI (International Roughness Index), Mean IRI (MRI), Half Car Ride Index (HRI), Profile Ride Index (PRI), Ride Number (RN)
  • Multiple outputs for Areas of Localized Roughness: IRI based roughness based on user specified thresholds; Rolling Straightedge, Profilograph must-grind bump template, Texas 1001-S localized roughness
  • Raw data is rewritable: change parameters at any time
  • User defined filtering values for high and low pass filters
  • Patented multiple trace reporting capability (display 2-3 traces side by side)
  • Export data into (PPF, ERD), PDF, Excel, CSV, PRO, CAD, Survey, and Text
  • Data is encrypted for security

 

Options

  • Wide beam laser (5KHz Gocator)
  • Better GPS: Medium (2.3ft/.7m or 4”/10cm with subscription) or RTK corrected high resolution (.4-.8”/1-2 cm) with CAD output formats
  • HD Camera (forward or downward facing)
  • Road Geometry (IMU)
  • Texture
