RoLineTM 1130 Sensor

 

LMI Technologies Inc. introduces the Selcom High Speed RoLine 1130 Sensor for high speed pavement profiling. The new sensor features laser line sensing for accurate profiling of all pavement geometries on high-speed profilers at any vehicle speed. The laser line measuring principle of RoLine sensors was developed to improve the accuracy of pavement profiling for coarse textured surfaces, particularly longitudinal tined and diamond ground surfaces. To provide flexibility, the RoLine 1130 operates with two data output modes, either full profile data or the optional output using the internal bridging algorithm that reduces the full profile to a single point output representing the actual surface location.
