DELTA'S LTL-M retrometer is based on new optical technology that has the same properties as used in its series of hand-held LTL retormeters
Danish company DELTA, a leading supplier of retroreflectometers for road markings and road signs, will launch its LTL-M mobile retroreflectometer at Traffex in Birmingham, UK.
The company, known for its LTL and RetroSign brands, says the new system "brings measurement accuracy to a new level"
The LTL-M mobile will measure line width and other geometry properties and can also monitor defective or missing road pavement markers.
The company's new mobile retrometer is based on a new optical technology that has the same properties as used in its series of hand-held LTL retrometers.
"The objective for the development of the LTL-M has been to make a mobile retrometer that should be as easy to use and as accurate as a hand-held retrometer," says DELTA.
Laboratory and field tests performed by the Swedish Road Research Institute (VTI), comparing the LTL-M, an existing mobile retrometer and using a hand-held instrument as a reference, have shown that the LTL-M measures with an accuracy similar to hand-held retrometers.
