WEBER Prüftechnik - now an official approved and certified calibration center
In the past few months, a modern calibration stand and our own calibration software have been developed in cooperation with various business partners. Both deviate from the previous state of the art. Wireless data transmission between the Light Weight Deflectometer and the calibration stand, as well as a significant reduction in physically heavy work on the calibration stand, were the focus of the planning from the start. These goals were achieved.
After completion, the calibration stand was official approved and certified by the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt).This makes WEBER Prüftechnik one of several calibration centers Light Weight Deflectometer recognized in Germany. All Light Weight Deflectometer are calibrated according to the currently valid calibration regulation TP BF-Stb Part B 8.4 (edition 2016).
Thanks to the newly acquired flexibility, we can now offer an even more customer-oriented service.
Grant of patent No. 10 2015 104 828
In 2013, WEBER Prüftechnik placed a development order for electronics, its associated firmware, and a measuring unit for a new type of Light Weight Deflectometer.
The implementation of various new ideas, many practical tests, and various CE-tests should be completed in just 21 months. This was a big challenge for everyone involved. Before the result, our new Light Weight Deflectometer LWD WEBERconnect, was published in September 2015, WEBER Prüftechnik had the most important innovations secured as part of a German patent application.
Almost five years later, patent No. 10 2015 104 828 was granted and can now be researched on the website of the German Patent and Trademark Office. The following attachment shows the certificate issued to us.
6. asphalt days Dresden
The asphalt days take place in Dresden every two years. In the house of the Dreikönigskirche, the participants can visit our small exhibition stand in addition to many specialist lectures. The second app "WEBERconnect" was completed in time for the start of the exhibition, which we are introducing to interested parties and customers for the first time.
With this app it is possible to replace the handheld that was previously supplied. Except for printing on site, the app contains all the usual functions. In the future, either send your measurement results to the office as a raw file and read them into the WEBER PC software, or send your measurement data as a text file to a client server, for example. Third option, create test reports in PDF format using the app. The logs contain your company header and the company logo. Measurement results, measurement curves, all labels and a photo of the measurement point are also included. The created PDF protocol can also be sent directly from the construction site. Conclusion: A visit to our stand should be worthwhile. The Christmas market in front of the Dreikönigskirche also attracts visitors.
No - there was no ceremony for the anniversary. Retrospectives of ten or more years are more suitable for this. Nevertheless, we are proud to look back on the results achieved over the past five years. These results were not only achieved through the hard work of everyone involved, but above all through the trust placed in us by all customers at home and abroad. We are particularly proud of this and would like to thank all of our customers in ten countries around the world.
We are also proud of our LWD WEBERconnect Light Weight Deflectometer. We developed this in 2013/14. New ideas, modern technologies and previously unused transmission channels were used. For example, the final results were now calculated for the first time in the load plate of a Light Weight Deflectometer and no longer in an additional computing unit. This technology currently makes it possible to transmit the results wirelessly to end devices, such as mobile phones, and thus optionally use the handheld previously used.
Our new method for calculating the deflection data was also unknown before our LWD was launched. In contrast to conventional calculations, the LWD WEBERconnect transforms acceleration data from time ranges into frequency ranges. This enables the acceleration data to be cleaned up significantly more effectively by suppressing interference frequencies. The benefits of this new technology are of the utmost importance to us. We have therefore protected them under a German patent (patent number: 10 2015 104 828).
We are looking forward to the challenges of the coming years. We already have ideas on how we can continue to consolidate in the market.
Let's tackle it together.
The new WEBERconnect app
Function: click here
With the new WEBERconnect app, there is now a direct, wireless interface between an LWD WEBERconnect Light Weight Deflectometer and an Android smartphone. With the new app, the LWD WEBERconnect can be controlled and read.
All our Light Weight Deflectometer not only determine the settlements in the load plate, but also calculate the Evd value in the load plate and output this as a result together with the s/v value, the curves, the date and the time. Thanks to this technology, it is now possible, to replace the previously supplied handheld, which functions as a pure display device and printer, with the new WEBERconnect app (without printing function) or to supplement it.
Thus, the delivery can be reduced by one module. So if you do not necessarily have to print on the construction site, you can do without the handheld when purchasing it in the future.
Since the WEBERconnect app is also used exclusively for display purposes and not for calculating the results, it is also not necessary to enter a calibration factor into the app. For calibration purposes, as usual, only the load plate and its associated loading device are needed.
The WEBERconnect app now makes it possible to transmit measurement results in real time to a given server. Thanks to this innovative technology, future requirements can already be met today, in which all data and information of a construction project be entered in a database specified by the client/contractor without manipulation.
Alternatively, this app can be used to generate and send individual and group logs including the company header in PDF format. If you would like to use the WEBER PC software for documentation, you can use the app to send the encoded raw measurement data directly from the construction site to the office.
After extensive testing, the WEBERconnect Lite App has been available for download and free of charge from the Google Play Store since October 01, 2019. The second version, our WEBERconnect app, with additional features is currently being developed. Their market launch is planned later this year.
The WEBERconnect Lite app works in German and English. Other languages are available as options. The app is compatible with all LWD WEBERconnect fall weight devices already on the market. Prerequisite is only a firmware update of the load plate.
