The VideoCone module consists of an optional single element, temperature-compensated strain gauge transducer for measuring both cone resistance and local sleeve friction. It has a miniature colour video camera with six high-brightness LED light sources and double layered durable scratch-resistance sapphire windows, a sensitive pressure transducer and an accurate XY inclinometer.

The VideoCone is capable of measuring all CPTu characteristics* as well having a real time, high-resolution view of the soil. The VideoCone also shows soil texture, colour, grain size and other features, eliminating the need for expensive and time consuming soil sampling.
