FPrimeC iPile™ is the most advanced wireless instrument for low strain integrity evaluation of deep foundations and piles. The device was invented to provide geotechnical engineers, inspectors, and piling contractors an effective solution for quality control and quality assurance of piles.
Moreover, it is the first and only integrated pile integrity testing solution for data recording, storage, analysis & reporting. iPile™'s mobile app is also optimized for both iOS and Android ecosystems, therefore eliminating the need for traditional data loggers, and PC software.
iPile™ can be used to test cast-in-place concrete piles and drilled shafts. The device allows you to test for multiple flaws & unknown factors such as the length of piles, voids and defects in piles & changes in pile cross-sections.
iPile's 3 main applications are to:
How iPile™ Works
Our Pile Integrity Testing Device uses the sonic-echo method to evaluate piles & foundations. The testing process is completed in three simple steps. Firstly, with a hammer, you will strike the pile. Once the pile is hit, results are recorded by a high precision motion transducer, also known as an accelerometer. The final step of the testing process is data collection from the device to the tablet. Data from iPile is instantly transferred to the iPad via Bluetooth 4 technology. In the app, inspectors may customize data collection, visualize results & create reports all directly in the application.
Advanced Wireless Sensor
Our wireless sensor is unlike any other device on the market, it is equipped with a high precision acceleration sensor and uses Internet of Things based technology to generate instant, wireless results. iPile™ meets the technical specifications set by the ASTM D 5882 "Standard Test Method for Low Strain Impact Integrity Testing of Deep Foundations". With a rechargeable battery, iPile™ covers you for an entire day on a job site.
