Topcon expands intelligent paving portfolio with Thermal Mapper system

By GeoConnexion - 1st July 2020 - 12:48

Topcon Positioning Group announced the new Thermal Mapper for asphalt paving designed to monitor temperature segregation to prevent future problems and measure performance, as well as easily provide accurate compliance reporting — all with real-time kinematic (RTK) positioning accuracy. The mapper records temperature readings behind an asphalt paver as the paving is in progress and provides a visualization to operators in real time of whether the mix falls within a pre-defined temperature range, and if any segregation is limited within specifications. The system also creates data reporting files to download for applications such as DOT compliance through an interactive Pavelink module, the Topcon cloud-based logistics application for asphalt paving.
