Abstract

The paper describes a new CPT system that consists of a digital data logger “Icontrol” and a digital cone “Icone”. The Icone is easily extendable by click-on modules to measure additional parameters and any module is automatically recognized by the Icontrol, thus creating a true plug & play system. This paper describes how, by moving to smart digital communication, sufficient bandwidth over a thin flexible measuring cable was created to accommodate additional parameters, without the need for changing cones, cables or data loggers. The following modules are described: seismic, conductivity, magneto and vane. Feedback from fieldwork with the Icone and a selection of click-on modules highlights the user experience with this new approach.
