This product updates the prior user's manual for Pave-IR to reflect changes in hardware and software made to accommodate collection of GPS data simultaneously during the collection of thermal profiles. The current Pave-IR system described in this manual attaches to the paver and collects and displays the thermal profile of the hot-mix construction operation in real time as the paving train progresses. The system also records the GPS coordinates of each temperature scan, so that the limits of the profile and the location of anomalous areas can be reliably documented.
