E-Saximeter - The E-Sax is the latest model of the time tested Saximeter. This hand-held device uses sound recognition to automatically detect hammer blows. It determines the hammer operating rate in blows per minute. A pile inspector can create a driving log by simply pressing one key at every user defined increment of penetration. For single acting, open end diesel hammers, it also calculates and displays ram stroke and hammer potential energy. This is an important quality assurance parameter, since an excessive stroke can cause pile damage. The E-Saximeter results are stored in memory and may be directly printed or transferred to a computer for further processing.
The E-Sax is the first Saximeter with an option of computing Hammer Kinetic Energy. This important parameter is calculated from measured hammer impact velocity. Measurements are obtained by hammer mounted sensors that transmit data to the E-Sax optional receiver.
