"Our new ZRS 6060 Retroreflectometer is setting the trend for the future" says owner and managing director Peter Zehntner. "Our customers expect precision instruments with cutting-edge technology and our main goal is the development of user friendly, low maintenance instruments."

Like all Zehntner products, the new lightweight retroreflectometer is fast, easy to use and delivers reliable, precise results. Moreover, the long-established Swiss instrument specialists have built in many innovations for the user:

It is the very first retroreflectometer for traffic signs, warning clothes and other reflexive materials such as conspicuity tapes with LED illumination system and with a 3.5” high resolution colour touchscreen with adjustable display inclination for excellent visibility under all lighting conditions. It is visible in bright sunlight as well as under artificial lighting. Ergonomic design and self-evident menu guidance have always been a matter of fact in Zehntner products and the new graphic display layout adds even more clarity.

Three different observation angles are measured at the same time. The retrometer can be used for all kinds of retroreflective materials and colours and includes automatic colour indication.

The temperature and air humidity are recorded simultaneously in addition to the coefficient of retroreflection.

Comfortable measurements are assured by a carrying strap, a shoulder bag and extremely long-lasting super long life battery.

Moreover, the customer can choose from an extensive set of options to configure the instrument according to his personal requirements: Several extendable handles of various lengths are available for reaching traffic signs on high poles. A holster with a safety clip provides easy access and comfortable and safe carrying of the instrument in the field. A GPS receiver allows precise positioning of the results. As a standard, all gathered information can be displayed in the included mapping and data analysis software for easy evaluation.

Naturally, all data can be transferred to a PC via the standard USB interface or via an optional Bluetooth® interface.

The ZRS 6060 rounds off the Zehntner portfolio of retroreflectometers for the road sector ideally. The Swiss manufacturer also offers retroreflectometers for road markings and for road studs. For more than 45 years the brand name Zehntner has been standing for Swiss precision instruments.
