LTL 3000 Retroreflectometer

The LTL 3000 is a very compact device of the latest generation for measuring the night (RL) and day visibility (Qd) of road markings (wet and dry). Measurements can be taken both day and night on dry and wet markings.

The LTL 3000 optionally fulfills the requirements of DIN-EN 1436, ASTM E 1710, ASTM E 2177, ASTM E 2302, ASTM E 2367 and ASTM E 2832. Each device has a calibration standard from DELTA's calibration laboratory for photometry, which is accredited by DANAK.

According to current planning, the LTL 3000 will be available from the end of April 2020, with some extras not available until summer/autumn 2020.
