1 –
Manual mode
with relative display of degree of compaction.
When this option is selected, information relating
to the achieved degree of compaction in the soil is
continuously shown graphically on the easy readable
display with automatic brightness regulating feature
during operation. This enables the operator to adapt
the mode of operation to the achieved degree of com-
paction and avoid unnecessary compaction passes and
possible over-compaction.
2 –
Automatic mode
with relative display of degree of compaction.
When this option is selected, the machine automati-
cally reduces the compaction performance preventing
reliably harmful loosening in the upper soil layers. This
option therefore also allows less experienced opera-
tors to achieve an optimal compaction result. As in the
manual mode, graphic information on the degree of
compaction is continuously displayed, enabling the
operator to respond accordingly.
3 –
Measurement mode
(
absolute display)
One machine - two tools.
The measurement mode allows compaction measure-
ment at any point on site. When the proportional dis-
play shows that sufficient compaction is achieved, the
actual kB value can be determined by the machine via
measurement. For this purpose, selection of the mea-
surement menu is necessary; the machine then signals
via the display whether measurement can be effected.
After a short time, the soil rigidity is
displayed as a numerical value in MN/m.
