DMIs Measure Distance, Area and Calculate Cost Estimates
NITESTAR Distance Measuring Instruments give you a way to take measurements between logged points in miles, feet or kilometers using your vehicle. An average survey can be completed using just the four large keys on the keypad of the DMI unit. You can also calculate Area, Volume, Tonnage and Cost for materials such as asphalt, concrete, gravel and sand. Each unit has a four-vehicle memory with four display windows for three-digit speed (mph, kph, fps), status, four-digit interval, and six-digit distance (miles, feet, or km). The NS-50 DMI TCI100 (No. 103460) displays data for you to reference on-screen. The NS-60 DMI TCI101 (No. 103461) takes it to the next level with a data output feature that allows you to connect the unit to a computer with the optional RS-232 Cable (No. 103464). Optional Survey Data Management (SDM) Software (No. 220969) gives you a way to organize, view and report the information collected.
DMI units support three different methods of vehicle integration. The best method depends on a number of factors including vehicle type, vehicle age, application and usage.
The SS-10 Electronic Interface (No. 134641) is designed to work with most vehicles equipped with non-mechanical transmission sensors (without a speedometer cable). The SS-10 Electronic Interface also requires the SS-10 Standard Cable Kit (No. 134642) for installation.
The Wheel Proximity Sensor (No. 103468) is used on vehicles that don’t have integrated wheel speed sensors, or where there is no manufacturer documentation as to the location of those signals. The Proximity Sensor requires a Vehicle Installation Kit TCI104 (No. 220967) for installation.
The OBD-II Interface Adapter TCI200 (No. 220968) allows the DMI to be used in virtually any vehicle with an OBDII port. No additional power cables are needed.
