  • Non-Nuclear Soil Density Gauge is used for detecting density of Soil specimens with non-nuclear type.
  • UTS-1280 is fully equipped with a touch screen and user-friendly graphical menu interface, running Microsoft Windows silently in the background for flowless operation, easy software are upgrades and enhanced user support.

The instruments general specifications are:

  • Full colour graphics driven interface, 480 x 640 VGA touch screen display with LED backlight for easy visibility.
  • Displays GPS status, available battery voltage, low battery and date/time,
  • Rugged case design made from aluminium, powder-coated gloss black with orange reflective vinyl graphics increasing driver awareness to road workers at night
  • Data Management Feature, quickly access, can be downloaded and deleted project data,
  • Required files can be downloaded to UTS-1280 via. USB,
  • Fast, reliable, accurate, and repeatable in real time, User Friendly, in-process, cost effective tool for any user,
  • The most important point is; Non-Nuclear means no Badges or Licences and no storage or transport concerns.
Operational Features:
  • Display: Full colour graphics driven user interface, 480×640 VGA touch screen display with LED backlight for easy visibility in daylight or dark situations.
  • Status Bar: Displays GPS status, Data Save status, battery voltage, low battery and date and time
  • Project Details: Stores up to 20 projects with details,
  • Material Details: Stores up to 20 materials, details include Material
  • Name, Description, Max Dry Density, Opt.
  • Moisture, Dry Density Offset, % Moisture Offset, % Greater than 3″, % Greater than 3/4″, % Gravel, % Sand, % Fines, PL, LL, Cu and Cc
  • Data Logging: Ability to store all measurements
  • Reports: Easily download data to be imported into Excel
  • GPS Control: When activated will display latitude and longitude positions, number of satellites the gauge is connected to as well as the UTC date and time, also available in UTM format.
  • GPS information will store with each measurement when Data Save and GPS feature is enabled, (Status Bar Icon)
  • Update Software: One touch upload of new software using a USB memory stick
  • Data Management: Quickly access, download or delete your project data
  • Set Time & Date: Quick time and date setup, MM/DD/YY and DD/MM/YY   formats
