The new ZRM 6013+ Road Marking Retroreflectometer from Zehntner.

At Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014 the Swiss manufacturer Zehntner GmbH Testing Instruments launches the ZRM 6013+ portable handheld retroreflectometer for road markings, an optimised reissue of the classic ZRM 6013. Like all Zehntner products, the new retroreflectometer is fast, easy to use and delivers reliable, precise results for all kinds of road markings.

The main focus has been put on speeding up the measuring process: RL and Qd are measured in about 2 seconds; single measurements of RL or Qd take only 1 second each. "Combined with the easy operation, this is a priceless advantage for the user" says Zehntner. "Everyone who has made field measurements knows that speed is of the essence and increases the safety."

The large, well-arranged 5.7" colour touch display makes the operation even easier. Intuitive menu guidance has always been a matter of course in Zehntner products.

Optionally the retrometer can be equipped with an extended handle, a built-in thermal printer and a WAAS GPS unit.

This free versatile mapping and data analysis software “MappingTools” makes administration and analysis of the road marking measurements fast and simple. The retroreflection measurements can be analysed to individual specifications and results can be displayed on a map such as e.g. bing and Google Earth. The user can specify colour coded profiles with freely adjustable retroreflection threshold values. This can be displayed on the map accordingly. This is a valuable support in decision making on maintenance planning to increase / maintain safety and efficiency.
