ZORN ZFG 3.1 | Light Weight Deflectometer

We are in the midst of an exciting transition from the familiar ZFG 3.0 model to the new generation ZFG 3.1. The ZFG 3.0 Light Weight Deflectometer will continue to be available for a limited time. Please contact your local ZORN partner for more information.

ZFG 3.1 – Light Weight Deflectometer

The current ZFG 3.1 is even easier to handle, lighter and, above all, more convenient than its predecessors. Just like its counterpart ZFG 3000, the intuitive menu navigation of the ZFG 3.1 enables even inexperienced users to safely perform and evaluate the dynamic plate load test. The ZFG 3.1 is an upgrade to the existing ZFG 3.0 and comes up with new, interesting functions.

Integrated WLAN
ZORN now makes data transmission via WLAN (Wi-Fi) standard with the new model. The very popular ZORN WLAN SD card is no longer available. Toshiba discontinued production of the base card without warning in the summer of 2020. So we had to come up with something and found room for a chip on the motherboard. Compared to the WLAN SD card, the integrated WLAN is more convenient to use. No fiddling around with different cards. Two clicks to enable WLAN in the settings: Done.

Background: fast online transmission of Evd measurement data is becoming increasingly important for ZFG users. In 2019, ZORN successfully introduced the D plus, which connects the ZFG accelerometer to smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. However, there is still a majority of users who prefer a “real” electronic box for their ZFG. For them, the ZFG 3.1 is the perfect choice: a customized measuring device with independent software that ensures you can always measure and send their data (with online access) to the office or to the client. The ZFG Viewer app developed for this purpose also makes it even easier to create protocols.

Ergonomic handheld device is made of robust plastic (Bayer polycarbonate Makrolon). Power supply via 4 commercially available R6 batteries (Mignon/AA) for approx. 1500 tests (included). Resilient full leather pouch for protection against dust and spray.

Advantages compared with other measurement methods

  1. Testing in confined areas, e.g. pipe trenches, bridge underpasses possible without problems
  2. Load vehicle no longer necessary
  3. Shortened test duration of only 2 minutes
  4. Easy handling and evaluation
