KUMONOS is a total station which has a built-in crack scale and 3D database management system. It can determine crack shape and width from a distance, 2D and 3D images of the data which are gathered by KUMONOS automatically drawn on a computer, which is accompanied by positional coordinates. KUMONOS provides safe, accurate and fast crack inspection.
The world’s first built-in crack scale
Crack width are calculated from the relation of the distance between the crack and the instrument, and the gauge number that is found by positioning the scale mark over the crack.
Improved measurement accuracy
KUMONOS can measure crack width of 0.3mm, 0.2mm, and 0.1mm from the respective distances of 80 meters, 50 meters, and 25 meters. This increase in measurable range allows safe and secure crack inspection in places where scaffolds or boom lifts have been required, and crack inspection was difficult or impossible.
Automatic creation of CAD drawings using dedicated software
The dedicated application software automatically converts acquired measurement data to CAD data and creates plotted drawings. It is possible to create layers, as well as add crack numbers and crack extensions to the CAD drawing.
Compensation of collimation angle
When we view the same width from different angles, they look different. Some of them look thick, others thin and others a medium width. This phenomenon is a problem for crack inspection,but KUMONOS automatically compensates for the angle and gets the right width.
Wide inspection range
Structures such as the following can be inspected by KUMONOS. Bridges, walls, dams, tunnels, concrete pavements and other concrete structures. These areas are no longer problematic. Inaccessible places such as a busy street or river is in front of the object you want to measure. Places where scaffolds and boom lifts are inaccessible.
