Vaisala SSI Passive Pavement Sensor FP2000

Vaisala SSI Passive Pavement Sensor FP2000 for monitoring remote locations


    Knowing the condition of the pavement results in more proactive and efficient operations. Scheduling winter storm crews, construction projects or pavement resurfacing is easier if you know the current conditions. Vaisala SSI Passive Pavement Sensor FP2000 monitors pavement conditions on roadways and runways, and determines if water or a chemical solution is on the pavement. Agencies around the world are using the Vaisala SSI Passive Pavement Sensor FP2000 to monitor remote locations, such as bridges or known problem areas.

    The data is used for maintenance operations during critical winter periods and throughout the year. The Vaisala SSI Passive Pavement Sensor FP2000 is durable, reliable and constructed to withstand heavy traffic, tire chains, snowplows and extreme weather conditions. The in-pavement sensor utilizes patented technology consisting of a combination of temperature, capacitance and two sets of fourpoint sensing nodes to measure pavement conditions. A well on top of the sensor collects moisture and chemical information.
