IrisPRO Inertial Profilers
IrisPRO High Speed Profiler
The IrisPRO is renowned for its accuracy and repeatability, routinely achieving cross-correlations of 0.99 during AASHTO R56 and ASTM E950 certifications. You can trust ICC equipment for your construction QC, smoothness assurance, and warranty validation needs.
You don’t want to put weight on freshly-laid pavements, but it’s the optimal time to check the smoothness. The lightweight profiler is the solution. It is also a great option for walkways, pathways, and bike trails.
The Portable Profiler features the same high accuracy but fits in a shipping container for easy transportation. It can be readily moved from vehicle to vehicle.
High Speed Profiling
The IrisPRO profilers are in widespread use for both roads and airports. They are used by contractors for smoothness assurance and to compute “must grind” areas on new pavements. They are used by quality assurance personnel for warranty validation and for inspections. They are used by civil engineering firms for runway and taxiway smoothness analysis. They are used by departments of transportation to set benchmark (reference) data for validating other high speed equipment. They are used by service providers as part of network level condition survey vehicles.
Profile data makes so much more sense with GPS data. This is why all ICC profilers come standard with a Garmin GPS system, and the Hemisphere Atlas DGPS is available as an option. The following image shows longitudinal profile data collected by ICC for an airport. Using the Connect software, data can easily be trimmed (i.e. set new start/end points for analysis), and start distance reference and direction can be edited. Metrics like International Roughness Index (IRI), Ride Number (RN), Profile Index (PrI), and others are automatically calculated. The data can be exported to ProVAL in ERD or PPF file formats for further analysis, or to CSV for analysis in other programs.
The IrisPRO+ adds the eye to your Iris system. Profile data makes so much more sense with images. Camera options include the popular Point Gray Ladybug 5+ 30MP Spherical camera and the Basler Ace 9MP camera. Contact us today to discuss additional options.
