Panda pénétromètre dynamique léger à énergie variable

A new generation of the PANDA® lightweight dynamic variable energy penetrometer is born, known to all, for soil recognition and compaction control.

The latest PANDA® model retains the fundamentals that have made it so successful internationally, namely, using manual variable energy to beat the drill string and the tip of the penetrometer to be driven into the ground, and thus avoiding the need to transport an energy source (generator, internal combustion engine, compressor...).

This concept allows the PANDA® to remain an easily portable equipment (suitcase or backpack) whether by car, plane... Where the operator can access, the PANDA® penetrometer test is possible under all conditions.

The PANDA® measuring principle makes it the only dynamic penetrometer in the world that performs inclined or horizontal soundings.

In addition, the operator can adapt his threshing energy to the hardness of the ground encountered, especially in soft and very soft soils. It thus obtains a signal composed of a multiplicity of points, and a richer and finer penetrogram than a much heavier penetrometer would have given.

The PANDA®, distributed in several thousand copies, is already widely recognized in France (NF P 94-105) but it is also used in more than 80 countries around the world.

The evolutions of this new generation of PANDA® reside in the processing of data recorded in the field and the immediate interpretation that the operator can make of it with new functionalities: color and touch screen, integrated GPS, multilingual, even more user-friendly, interpretation and calculation of instant anomalies in the field....

The annual calibrations are already available on this new version, and comply with all the requirements of the various organizations or quality systems (COFRAC, LABOROUTE, ISO 9001...).
