Smart DCP for Dual-Mass Penetrometers

The SmartDCP makes collecting soil data with your Dynamic Cone Penetrometer much easier by automatically counting blows and eliminating the need for tape, pencils, paper and at times a second operator.

It also provides vastly improved accuracy and ease of collecting and transferring data from the field to the office.
The SmartDCP achieves this by:

  • Automatically counting blows;
  • Recording the change in depth with each blow;
  • Tracking the total depth of the probe;
  • Recording data on Apple iOS and Android smart devices via WIFI;
  • Eliminating the need for a ruler, pencil, and paper;
  • Transferring data via e-mail or USB from the smart device

The SmartDCP kit can be mounted to most hand held DCPs on the market and is easily operated by a single person. The investment cost associated with the SmartDCP is quickly realized through the reduction in time spent doing field tests, as well as the increased accuracy and ease of transferring data and creating reports. Users have repeatedly doubled the number of completed tests with increased accuracy when compared to the traditional manual data collection method of using a scale and paper log.

In the field the SmartDCP records data on a smart App. The App is free and available for download at the iOS App store for iPhones or Google Play for Android phones. The SmartDCP App immediately provides real time CBR%, depth change between blows, as well as total depth of penetration with each data point. Completed tests can be graphed on the smart device in the field for quick analysis or sent via email to the investigation lead to review in the office. A complimentary desktop application for Window’s systems is also available. The desktop application can be used to quickly graph your field data and keep your data organized using the application and Windows Explorer. This program can be downloaded from the following link: http://www.vertekcpt.com/dcp-handheld-and-adcp or via electronic transmittal.
