The compaction indicator shows when the job is done
The new compaction indicator on the Atlas Copco LG500 reversible plate saves time and money. The technology helps reduce machine wear and over-compaction.
The compaction indicator on the LG500 reversible plate measures the vibration patterns in the plate and shows how well the soil is compacted beneath the surface.
The compaction indicator is mounted at the centre of the handle and the system communicates via a clear system of indicator lights. The three lights; yellow green and red, signal the different stages of compaction. When the red light flashes the particular soil type has reached maximum compaction and it is time to stop.
To get an even safer compaction experience, the Atlas Copco's CompBase provide detailed compaction data and capacity information based on full-scale tests. The machine and method selection is based on the material to be compacted and provides information on the expected depth effect and degree of compaction after any given number of passes.
