It is recommended that a continuous method of measurement should be adopted in all cases of surveying defined traffic movement.
For continuous measurement, the Face VDMA Profileograph is used. The VDMA Profileograph is a self-propelled wheeled instrument which travels along the centreline of the VNA aisle taking continuous measurements both transversely and longitudinally as it does so. The VDMA Profileograph is adjustable so that the skates run in the wheel tracks of the front load wheels of the MHE.
These readings are generated by the three sensors, which are set up to measure the longitudinal and transverse properties of the specification. These readings are collected on a data logger and are subsequently downloaded to a PC where our software generates the graphic traces and compliance results.
For the Longitudinal micro small wavelength measurement or ‘Fx’ number the Profileograph is fitted with the ‘Fx’ meter.
