This comprehensive, feature-rich, reliable system includes: 
Enclosed air purge frames with sensor wipes
Smallest commercially available C-Channel for sensors 
Multi-bearing precision-aligned linear rail & track
Sr-90 source with continuous temperature compensation
New powered electrometer for the highest measurement precision
Anti-flutter measurement capability
Ethernet TCP/IP-OPC network protocol
Beckhoff PLC open control system

Indev-Act’s extensive sensor portfolio can measure a wide range of important roofing material properties such as porosity, fiberglass mat thickness, felt thickness and paper moisture. Indev-ACT’s unique multi-sensor head configuration allows same-spot quality measurements from different process locations for comprehensive product optimization. The ShingleMaster system is a truly scalable platform that allows the customer to configure an optimum measurement and control solution that delivers increased yield and quality while reducing scrap. ShingleMaster will typically produce an ROI of less than 6 months through yield variation reduction and bundle weight optimization.
