GPC

Piletest’s GPC is the next generation of dynamic pile testing systems. It is designed with simplified software and higher ease of use than past systems. Professor George G. Goble, the pioneer of dynamic pile analyzers, designed the GPC system

  • Lossless Wireless Transmission.

  • Simple single (data) main unit for both sides of the pile. 

  • Comboducer - Straingauge + Accelerometer transducers are combined on a single bolt-on sensor.

  • Dual system option for four (4) Comboducers (Eight (8) channels).

  • ASTM D4945 Standard compliant.

 

Applications

You need to connect only two dual-purpose sensors (Comboducers) to test a driven pile dynamically while being hammered into the ground. The system main unit can be attached to the pile under test and sends all the monitored data to your computer via lossless wireless communication. This concept makes the construction site work much easier and faster to operate. To measure four (4) sides of a pile, two main unit systems can be used concurrently with a dual WiFi connection computer.

Easy to Operate Dynamic Pile Testing, with Intuitive Software and Combo Sensors (Comboducers) 

Reliable

  • Lossless wireless communication, 100% reliable.

  • The GPC main unit can tolerate the harsh conditions of the pile drive (hammer) machine

  • 3-year warranty!

  • Rugged connectors and sensors

Easy to Use

  • Single bolt sensor for two transducers, with Comboducer = Accelerometer + Staingage

  • One operator can handle the lightweight GPC system.

  • Easy and Simple to use software. 

Top Perfromance

  • Dual channel lossless Wifi connection

  • N_GAPA - Top-notch Automatic Pile Analysis software for signal matching analysis, proven to be equal to and faster than CAPWAP

  • Real-time analysis of non-uniform piles, in the field

BIT

Borehole Inclination Tester

BIT measures the inclination of a borehole AND of existing piles. In a borehole, BIT uses the auger/bucket itself as the centralizer. 

A special centralizer is attached to the BIT sensor in an existing pile and lowered into a plain black steel access tube. BIT enables fast & accurate determination of verticality.

CHUM

Cross Hole Ultrasonic Monitor

The CHUM uses the Crosshole Sonic Logging CSL testing method to perform high-resolution quality control of deep foundations. It is used mainly for large-size deep pile foundations, where pile integrity tester like PET is not suitable.

PET Bluetooth

Pile Integrity Tester
PET is used to test the integrity of deep pile foundations. PET Uses the pulse-echo method (PEM) for pile integrity testing (PIT). A pile test starts when the pile top is struck with a hammer, and the PET accelerometer records the reflected waves, which are displayed as a reflectogram.
