DAT instruments, Open Day 2018, Facebook Live

DAT instruments Open Day, which occurred on June 8th in its headquarters in Cairate, north of Italy, has underlined the latest creations of DAT instruments in the data loggers and software world for drilling, special foundations and geotechnical tests. This event let the Italian firm show how these instruments can really help the operators. Not only recording but also many other different functions present in the new DAT instruments products such as DAT WideLog and Easy DAT.

Experience, evolution and concreteness

“DAT instruments has been active on the data logger and software for geotechnical and special foundations market for 17 years. We carried out many installations in Italy and worldwide, even in the most remote locations and in the most arduous fields. In these years we have always worked thinking about future and innovation: for example, the new DAT WideLog data logger can send data from field directly to office displaying in real time carried out works. During our Open Day we had a Facebook Live webstreaming as we are really interested in social media trends. In addition to that, we focused on product usability, as sometimes there is no power supply or no Internet connection when we are in field! We are at Customer disposal with spare parts, after sale service and updates always available, even for old instruments“. Amedeo Valoroso (DAT instruments founder and owner) speech is perfectly describing an up to date company that is always thinking about all needs of drilling fields. Needs that for DAT instruments become many opportunities to find solutions and to increase Customer service: from installation to technical assistance in field via telephone or via the Internet.

The Star

The Star of this Open Day has been the DAT WideLog, the latest creation of DAT instruments that is provided with a coloured touch screen monitor of 18,5” (41×23 cm) which shows many different graphics, numbers, gauges and everything is needed by the operator in order to drill or inject in the most precise manner as possible.

The full HD monitor is very resistant and can be used even while wearing gloves. It can display many different data at the same time with graphics that are the max, average and minimum value and pre-established value. The internal memory, almost infinite, records data that can be downloaded via USB pen drive or via Internet: DAT WideLog has both an Ethernet port and WiFi antenna. It is also possible to have a 3G-4G modem. While working, each drill data are transferred to the office in real time. Data can be displayed on any instrument such as PC, smartphone or tablet and files are compatible with Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc. The new data logger can work even in field with saline soil, very high or very low temperatures, sand, water and in the worst adverse atmospheric conditions. The DAT WideLog is made of stainless steel and proper gaskets and IP68 connectors ensure water resistance. The DAT WideLog, according to different kit sensors, can be used in any application such as jet grouting, cement injections, TAM, drilling, DAC test, CFA, deep mixing, soil mixing, vibroflotation, dWalls, hydromill, Lugeon and Lefranc tests.

An unexpected world

During this Open Day many different questions to DAT instruments professionals have underlined that, for many drilling companies, the data logger world is something that must be discovered more and more. Instruments, software and technical support of DAT instruments are a real help for the company, the operator, the Client and the Supervisor. All these people have a real support from DAT instruments in order to make their work easier, more efficient, faster and certified. The possibility to certify the correct execution of a work is very important and it is demanded not only from Supervisors but from the company executing the work too in order to demonstrate that they work in a proper way. This is an additional card to play while contracting.

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

DAT instruments dataloggers make the difference. No matter which is the brand of the drilling equipment, of the pump, of the hydromill, of the crane. No matter its dimensions, the date of manufacturing and the technology used. With a competitive price, even the oldest equipment can obtain new and modern functions.

A perfect interface

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

Dataloggers produced by DAT instruments can be installed on equipment of any age and dimension. Usually used on equipment such as:

– piston pump, helicoidal gear pump and turbine pump for cement injections, sleeved grouting pipes, injections with packer (TAM grouting);
– gear pump for Lugeon test;
– crane with hydraulic or electric vibrator for vibroflotation;
– drilling machine for drilling or for DAC test, jet grouting, soil mixing, CFA;
– mechanical or hydraulic crane with grab for diaphragm wall (dWalls);
– hydromill.

The datalogger and the mechanical equipment are two independent systems, which are working in parallel. DAT instruments designs sensors in order to be able to interface with any equipment. For this reason, the datalogger matches the system and not the contrary. The brand too is not a fundamental factor. DAT instruments dataloggers can be adaptable to any kind of geotechnical equipment for soil consolidation or special foundation, of any model and of any brand.

 

Advantages

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

Any equipment, even the oldest one, with a DAT instruments datalogger can obtain different kind of automatisms. An example of this has occurred in Turin (North of Italy) while building a new metro line. Datalogger has been installed on sleeved grouting pipes (TAM grouting) pumps letting executing four pipes at the same time. Another example has occurred in the Ivory Coast with CFA equipment.

For any kind of work

DAT instruments dataloggers for ageless equipment

With the DAT instruments datalogger it has been possible to control and establish the rod rise speed thanks to solenoid valves already present on the drilling equipment. In case of jet grouting it is possible to obtain perfect steps in time and centimetres. This is what happened in Turkey and in Singapore working with very old equipment.

These functionalities let the company be able to have detailed reports, in any kind of work, which can be directly given to the Construction Supervision. This means saving time and, therefore, saving money and knowing that a great job has been carried out.

In works such as sleeved grouting pipes, free injections, jet grouting or CFA, where automatisms are necessary, using a datalogger the operator only needs to set up pre-established parameters following the project lines. Everything else is carried out by the datalogger making the operator life easier. At the same time, the operator can always watch all parameters in real time through the datalogger display. In this way, even if there are no automatisms, the operator can regulate manually speed, pressure and everything else.

An equipment always ready to be used

Amedeo Valoroso, DAT instruments datalogger, Easy DAT

“Just installing a DAT instruments datalogger”, says Amedeo Valoroso, founder and owner of DAT instruments, “every equipment, even the oldest, can regain the same functions of a modern one. The datalogger records parameters and so it let certify the carried out work. In addition to that, on specific applications such as jet grouting and CFA, the datalogger let automate the process even using a very old drilling equipment. With a low cost, it is possible to obtain the best result”.

The new generation of DAT instruments touch screen dataloggers, such as the new DAT WideLog, display data and graphics directly on the wide and coloured monitor. In addition to that, it is possible to download and display, in real time, all the works and to export data to Microsoft Excel or Openoffice Calc. It is also possible to watch data online even on mobile devices such as tablet or smartphone.
