Vibrocorer Penetration Sensor Data Sensor Data Sheet

For use with any Vibrocorer System.
The Datem Vibrocorer Penetration Sensing System is a sealed electronic based unit
incorporating a spring-loaded retractable stainless steel cord attached to a distance
measuring sensor. As the Vibrocorer drives itself in to the ground it pulls out the
stainless steel cord, operating the distance sensor. When the vibrocorer is pulled back in
to the deployment frame, the internal spring loaded mechanism retracts the cord back in
to the housing.
