Streetlight Testing With the RLS Meter

What is the RLS Meter?

The unique Relative Loss of Section (RLS™) Meter is developed specifically to locate and quantify corrosion of steel poles, light columns and reinforcing that cannot be identified by visual inspection. i.e. internal and external surfaces of the buried section of the root, and internal corrosion of the base and hot swaged joint.

  • Test Without Excavation
  • Efficient
  • Safe and Simple to Use
  • Portable
  • Scientific and Quantifiable
  • Proven Since 1998.

From our friends at CMT Testing PTE in Singapore, CMT Global Tech

The RLS Meter is a holistic and scientific technology for corrosion detection of street lighting poles that:

  • Enhances conventional operation and maintenance regime
  • Improves public safety
  • Manage cost effectively
  • Saves from unnecessary replacement of poles

How Does It Work?

An eddy current-based technique developed in the United Kingdom and in use for over 13 years overseas, the RLS™ is a NDE method that allows the operator to scientifically quantify corrosion in the critical zone of a pole without excavation.

The RLS™ technique is a dry coupled system that will provide a cost efficient assessment of the column. The results obtained estimate the percentage loss of section allowing the columns to be classified for either replacement or retesting at a scheduled interval.

Measure: Don’t Guess

Compare the critical zone reading to a reference taken on the pole, then classify the overall structure outcome.
