Skiddometer BV11 VI

The Skiddometer BV11VI (Vehicle Integration) is the latest innovation in friction measurement. Its proven technology has been adapted to use a hydraulic lift system with the Skiddometer BV11 and the Skiddometer Touch Screen computer, to provide better vehicle integration.

This new and simple construction allows the Skiddometer unit to be installed easily on any brand of pickup truck available on the market without modifications to the vehicle itself. Friction measurement can take place during the worst possible weather conditions, and now any vehicle can be used to perform the measurement, including safe four-wheel drives designed for such

What you get

Unbeatable Technology

  • Well proven Skiddometer BV11 and the Skiddometer Touch Screen Computer
  • Installation on any pickup truck
  • No modifications needed to the vehicle (no effect on warranty)
  • A wide selection of configuration options
  • Unique self zero adjustment.

Improved safety

  • A four-wheel drive provides more efficiency and safety for the operator
  • Worst possible conditions will not compromise operation or safety
  • Ensure that the flight control and pilots have the correct friction information for landing and takeoff (enough runway to make the aircraft come to a complete stop before the runway ends).

Low life cycle cost

  • Can be easily installed to any brand or type of pickup truck
  • Utilization of rental vehicles is possible
  • Precise information on when to take necessary actions to remove snow, ice etc.
  • Precise information on the surface structure of the runway and whether it needs to be improved.
The Skiddometer BV11 Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment (CFME) is approved and recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Similar systems on the market are still comparison tested with the Skiddometer, originally launched in 1968. Moventor is assessed and certified as meeting the requirements of ISO 9001 Quality Management System.

Time to time we have also preowned second hand units for sale. See more information.

Self wetting systems

Besides using the Skiddometer during rain, slush, and snow conditions (operational use), the Skiddometer is also used for checking the runway surface condition and “rubber build-ups” (Runway Calibration), i.e. measuring wet friction at a water depth of one millimeter. This measurement is based on recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and ASTM standard E 1960 – 98.

Since wet pavement always yields the lowest friction measurements, we offer a self-wetting system which simulates wet pavement surface conditions and provides the operator with a continuous record of friction values along the length of the runway. The attached water pump and nozzle are designed to provide a uniform water depth of 1 mm (0.04 inches) in front of the friction measuring tire. This wetted surface produces friction values that are most meaningful in determining whether or not corrective actions are required.

Runway calibration equipment

For regular runway calibration with a trailer-based Skiddometer BV11, we offer the WMS Water Measurement System. The WMS system is totally self-contained and offers maximum flexibility, as any vehicle can be used for towing. The stainless steel water tank is built from multiple compartments to prevent sloshing. Its capacity is sufficient to make the longest runway measurements with a single run.

Features and benefits

  • The most advanced self-wetting system on the market
  • Its robust pumping system automatically provides an always correct uniform water depth of 1 mm (0.04 inches)
  • The stainless steel tank’s volume can be suited and optimized for customer needs
  • Extremely stable, low center of gravity construction
  • Service free robust construction
  • Can be used to transport Skiddometer BV11 for longer distances, e.g. between different airports.
