What is PCD?
PCD (power cable detection) uses an electromagnetic sensor to detect the electromagnetic flux field generated when a current is passed through a conductor. The use of this sensor – in conjunction with GPR – helps to identify the objects located by GPR. As an added safety feature, it will alert you to any power source of interest in the area which may injure a worker if it is cut.
- How does the WIFI image export work?
Conquest™ 100 is uniquely enabled to transmit screenshots to the internet through a smart phone or tablet. This allows you to send simple reports to a client or an engineer for approval of a cutting or drilling location, thus reducing wait time and saving money. Information also can be sent to a co-worker or supervisor for training or a second opinion. A USB and a micro USB port enables downloading data to a thumb drive for further processing on your computer.
- What is included in a mobility package?
The mobility package consists of an ergonomically-designed harness, a segmented handle, a second battery pack and a two-station desk battery charger. This package allows you to comfortably collect data all day while standing or walking and is of particular benefit in line scan mode.
- What fits in the all-in-one case?
The All-in-one case is designed to hold and transport everything that is needed to complete GPR scanning tasks. The all-in-one case is designed to protect, hold and transport your Conquest 100 system to and from the survey site providing watertight and crushproof protection again impact, vibration and shock.
- How do I use the touchscreen?
The high resolution intuitive touchscreen enables use even while wearing hand protection. It works in conjunction with the familiar buttons below the screen.
- What is the drill locator function?
The drill locator allows the user to place the drill indicator on the Gridmap screen to indicate the best and safest location to drill the required hole. This will eliminate any doubt on the part of a client or driller as to where to drill, minimizing the potential liability from someone choosing to drill in an alternate location and causing damage or injury. The size of the drill locator can be varied, and the drill icon can be positioned by sliding a finger across the touchscreen.
- What does Dyna-Q stacking do for me?
Our patented Dyna-Q stacking controls the number of scans taken over the distance traveled to ensure good quality data density. The blue bar shown below the PCD reading changes colour if you move too fast and if it turns white, the data collection stops and you are directed to recollect the line because the data is corrupted.
- What is meant by rapid deployment?
Rapid deployment refers to the minimal set-up time required from arrival at site to the start of data collection and is a function of the all-in-one case, the battery power and the ease of setup and operation. Simply unpack, connect the cable and start scanning.
