The TECO-LITE by Testconsult is a wireless foundation testing system, used for checking the integrity of concrete pile foundations.
The TECO-LITE system uses a rugged PDA to receive and analyse data, with a wireless Bluetooth transducer to measure the acceleration response of the foundation.
The PDA screen is clearly visible in bright daylight and is provided with a backlight for night operations if required.
Data can be transferred to the windows based TEAP analysis software through a USB interface or Bluetooth for more detailed analysis and reporting.
The flexibility of this system means it can be used to test pre-cast concrete piles, cast-in-place foundations and timber piles of most dimensions. Typical anomalies that may be located include shaft discontinuities, overbreak or bulges, reductions in section or necking and zones of poor quality concrete.

Featuring TEAP analysis software as standard, data can be tabulated and all response curves presented for reporting either individually or up to 8 test results per page.
Response curves can be filtered and exponentially amplified to help detect weak responses from depth and signal polarity can be reversed to suit the operators' preference.
The user is able to define which variables to include in report tables, select different concrete velocities and save commonly used interpretation comments.
