runway friction tester / towed
The Runway Friction Meter Mu-Meter FT 256 is a continuous surface measuring and reporting system for testing airport runways, taxiways and road surfaces. The equipment consists of a small three-wheeled trailer incorporating electronic measuring systems which operate in conjunction with a computer, carried in the chosen towing vehicle.
The trailer systems produce signals which are presented on the laptop screen and processed for later downloading to an office printer.
In addition the recorded data can be exported via the laptop RS 232 serial port or stored on the floppy disk for which a drive is provided to the laptop unit. This feature provides the ability to download the data to an IBM compatible computer for data storage and analysis at a later time.
