TH-M1 uses tracks. Tracks are stretches of road that can cover one or more lanes. Each time the machine moves to another part of a project or a new project, a new track is started.
TH-M1 always starts from the list of tracks. By default, the list is empty.
Starting a new track
Start a new track by tapping on the button + ADD NEW TRACK.
Step 1: Scan QR-code
Tap to toggle between the front camera and the rear camera.
As soon as a valid QR-code is detected, you are guided to the next steps.
The TH-M1 app will download the configuration files for the TH-M1 hardware and will ensure the data will be stored at the right location.
The QR-code can be printed directly from the Pavelink website.
Step 2: Track reference and temperature threshold
Enter the track reference. This name should reflect the jobsite, e.g., project code and/or description.
Enter the temperature cut-threshold value.
Any temperature lower than this number will be ignored. It is also used to detect the edge of the track.
Step 3: Product and target temperature range
Enter the asphalt type: typically SMA, HMA, etc. This could also be a mix code.
Enter the minimum and maximum processing temperature for the asphalt.
The target settings determine the colors used throughout the application.
Step 4: Layer and lanes
Select the layer of the track and the lanes it covers by tapping on the texts.
This information will be part of the file name later, for easier identification.
Each time the paper moves a tile size distance (default 20 cm), a row is added to the temperature readings view.
When the track is done
Tap on the stop button when the track is finished.
You will be asked to confirm.
The track data will automatically be stored in the Pavelink cloud.
Managing stored tracks
Tracks are automatically uploaded to the Pavelink cloud.
You delete a track by tapping on the delete button next to the track reference.
Use the delete button at the bottom right to delete all tracks.
All settings are stored in the Pavelink cloud and reloaded and synchronized each time the system is used.
Press the menu button at the bottom left, and select Preferences.
Typically, you would only change preferred lot length and exclude edges in statistics.
You can change NTRIP settings via NTRIP Configuration.
