Introduction
Introduction
Introduction to MatManagerTM
System Overview
Paving Quality System
MatManager™ is a paving quality system
that enables the operator to monitor and
document key quality parameters of the
paving job.
The GPS logs all data with location coordinates to track the exact position of every
piece of registered data.
The MatManager™ paving quality system
consists of three main system components:
After completing the paving job, the operator can export all logged data for data
processing and analysis. A printable report
of key data can also be made to validate
that road specifications have been met.
•
The MatManager™ uses a range of different input sensors mounted on the asphalt
paver to measure and calculate the key
paving parameters. The data is collected
via the MatManager™ Interface Box, and
presented on the MatManager™ Control
Unit screen.
•
The MatManager™ keeps track of material consumption with real-time measurements, so you can ensure that you are
on target and prevent material overruns.
It documents how many kg you have put
down per m2 paved, and registers instances of stop, start and loading to document
your work flow.
Paving speed, paved distance and material temperature, as well as relevant weather parameters such as air temperature,
wind speed, air pressure and humidity,
are also continually registered and presented on the 7” graphical display.
The MatManagerTM system continually
undergoes significant development, and
existing systems can be upgraded with
new features as they are released.

There are currently five different input
sensor types in the MatManager™ system:
•
•
•
•
•
Weather station with GPS
Screed width sensor
IR Temperature sensor
Distance sensor with distance wheel
Tamper/Vibrator sensor
The MatManager™ Control Unit and all input sensors connect to the MatManager™
Interface Box located centrally on the machine.
It is possible to connect the MatManager™ directly to the speed or distance
signal of the asphalt paver, instead of using the distance sensor and distance wheel that comes with the MatManager™ system. This may result in
erroneous distance measurements, and faulty calculations of the system
due to slip, as the wheels or tracks of the paver will tend to slide slightly
when the paver is moving forward.
We strongly recommend the use of the distance wheel and distance sensor
of the MatManager™ system for accurate measurements, and are unable to
warrant correct system calculations, if the operator chooses not to do so

The MatManagerTM Light system also has two different system configurations, with
optical screed width sensors or with wirepull screed width sensors.
The MatManagerTM Light configurations can subsequently be upgraded to the standard
MatManagerTM system, but cannot be upgraded with additional sensors and new
features, without first upgrading to one of the standard MatManagerTM system
configurations.

The MatManagerTM System requires
installation by a service technician from
TF-Technologies or a technician in your
local area appointed by TF-Technologies.
Once the system is installed, it is ready
to use.
The MatManagerTM Control Unit has a touch screen display and ten buttons, five navigation keys on the left side and five function keys on the right side. Each button has the
function shown by the icon next to it on the display.
The MatManagerTM control unit should be
disconnected and removed at the end of
day for storage and protection. The control unit is easily removed or re-mounted
by loosening the thumbscrew on the
Mount Arm, and should be stored safely
in the accompanying Carry Case.
The MatManagerTM Interface Box and
all sensors are designed for permanent
mounting and should remain on the
asphalt paver between paving jobs.

Asphalt Paver Requirements
A pre-condition for the safe use of the
MatManager™ Paving Quality System is
that the system is only used on asphalt
pavers that comply with applicable safety
regulation.
The key safety requirements of asphalt
pavers, which have an influence on the
safe use of the MatManager™ Paving
Quality System is therefore outlined below.
Key safety requirements for safe installation of the MatManagerTM System
!
Key safety requirements of asphalt pavers for the safe use of the MatManagerTM System
A form of overcurrent protection must be installed between the power
supply of the asphalt paver and the MatManager™ Paving Quality System.
This should be checked prior to the connection of the system. The overcurrent protection is usually built into the asphalt paver in the form of a
fuse in a central fuse box
!
Within the EU the asphalt paver must be CE marked and thereby comply
with the requirements described in EN60204, Safety on Machinery - Electrical Equipment of Machines
!
i
48
!
After installing the MatManager™ Paving Quality System on a new asphalt
paver, it should be tested that the emergency stop covers the system,
so that power supply to the MatManager™ Paving Quality System is
switched off when the emergency stop is activated
The asphalt paver must be equipped with an emergency stop that can
stop all potentially dangerous parts of the machine, including switching
off the power supply to the MatManager™ Paving Quality System
MatManager™ Paving Quality System is developed for use on both asphalt
pavers with a 12V system and asphalt pavers with a 24V system. The
asphalt paver must be able to deliver a stable power supply as described
in EN60204, for instance via the battery of the asphalt paver
49
Safety Instruction
Safety Instruction
Correct use
The MatManager™ has been developed as a Paving Quality System for asphalt pavers,
and correct use therefore entails that the system is used for this purpose.
The operator must:
i
Read and understand the user manual.
In case of questions, contact your local representative
!
Be aware of the situations described under Examples of Incorrect Use p.
52, Warnings and Dangerous Situations p. 53 and be able to avoid them
Responsibility of the Operator
When commencing the paving job, the operator must remember the following:
!
!
i
!
!
50
Investigate local legislation regarding road construction work and the use
of protective equipment required for the paving job
Avoid situations described in the total risk assessment

Safety Instruction
Examples of Incorrect Use
The MatManager™ system should only be
used to what it is constructed to, and most
examples of incorrect use are self-explanatory and therefore not described. How-
ever, certain key examples of misuse or
inappropriate behavior are outlined below, and should be avoided.
Warnings and Dangerous Situations
The MatManager™ Paving Quality System must not be used:
!
Examples of incorrect use of the system before the paving job:
i
Do not remove any of the labels on the MatManager™ System, as they are
required for product identification, e.g. in relation to repair and disposal
!
!
If the MatManager™ Paving Quality System has been rebuilt
The MatManager™ Paving Quality System can be damaged:
Do not open the house of the MatManagerTM, as this will expose the electronics and can damage the product
i
!
No parts of the MatManager™ Paving Quality System must be rebuilt or
refurbished, as TF-Technologies will no longer be able to vouch for the
quality, and rebuilding units may cause serious personal injury or material
damage
If welding is performed on the asphalt paver, the Averaging Beam or Support
Arm, as large currents may travel through the construction and damage the
electrical equipment.
The following precautions should be taken before welding:
• Remove all electrical equipment wherever possible
• Disconnect the negative pole on the battery of the asphalt paver, or mount voltage protection on the battery
Examples of incorrect use of the system during the paving job:
• Place the negative electrode close to the welding point
!
It is not recommended to connect MatManagerTM on a paver, when power is
already applied, as the metal jacket on the cable under unfortunate circumstances may lead to short circuiting the asphalt paver, if the metal jacket
hits the two power supply pins at the same time
!
It is not recommended to install the MatManager™ on an asphalt paver on
the move or in operation, as this may remove focus from the surrounding
traffic, which may result in serious personal injuries
52
If the MatManager™ Paving Quality System is obviously damaged
• Remove paint before welding
i
When cleaning the asphalt paver, e.g. if using a high-pressure cleaner, as this
may expose the MatManager™ system to too large forces. The MatManager™
Control Box and mounting must therefore be removed before cleaning the
asphalt paver. The Interface Box should be protected and covered with a
plastic bag and the water jet must not be pointed directly at the MatManagerTM Interface Box or sensors when cleaning the asphalt paver

Document any potential damage in the form of text and pictures
Do not use damaged products
Storage
Advice on storage of the MatManager™ system:
The MatManager™ system should be transported in a suitable carry case,
where all parts rest firmly without being able to clash against each other. The
use of MatManager™ Carry Cases with custom-cut foam is recommended
i
i
The transport case must protect the equipment from shock and pressure, as
the MatManager™ system is often transported together with heavy equipment for the paving job
For long-term storage, the MatManager™ system should be kept dry and
out of direct sunlight
Notice that high temperatures can be obtained by storing the MatManager™
system in a non-ventilated car in the summer
If the MatManager™ system is packed up wet, the Carry Case should not be
completely closed. Both Carry Case and content should be wiped dry before
the Carry Case is completely closed and put in storage
57
Maintenance
Maintenance
Cleaning
It is important that the MatManager™ system is cleaned often, so that it does not lose
functionality. However, inappropriate cleaning agents or an incorrect cleaning method
can damage the equipment and cause degrading functionality.
It is generally recommended to use a dry cloth with a little water or benzine, as the
equipment is secured against water, and because benzine evaporates quickly. A quick
evaporation ensures that the benzine does not collect in nooks and crannies and has
long-term dissolving effects, as can be the case with other cleaning agents.
i
•
•
•
Follow the instructions on the bottle of benzine
Always use as little as possible
Avoid breathing vapors and direct contact with the skin
!
!
Never use cellulose thinner or acetone, as these dissolve paint and plastic
respectively, which will degrade the functionality of the equipment. Other
cleaning agents can also be harmful, but experience shows that these two
in particular should be avoided
Never use a high-pressure cleaner to remove dirt, as it will expose the
equipment to too large forces
When mechanically rinsing the equipment, no scraping must be undertaken on the display or connectors as these parts are particularly sensitive
Use of benzine to clean cables can make the writing on the cables disappear, but the cables will not be damaged
When cleaning with fluids, only small amounts should be dapped on the areas to be
cleaned, and these areas should be wiped with a dry cloth afterwards. The equipment
must never be submerged in chemical liquids or exposed to cleaning agents in larger
quantities, as the fluids can gather in nooks and crannies and have long-term dissolving effects.
Disposal
Be particularly aware of:
The responsibility for safe and appropriate disposal is transferred to the buyer in the
sale of the MatManager™ system.
!
58
!
Only use water or screen cleaner, not benzine, for cleaning the display on
the MatManagerTM screen
Please note that benzine is an organic dissolvent, which is flammable and harmful to
health and environment. I must therefore be used responsibly and with respect for its
harmful effects. The operator should follow these instructions before use:
!
!
When disposing the MatManager™ system the equipment must be treated as electronic waste in compliance with the local regulations of the country in which the equipment is disposed.
No parts of the MatManager™ system should be submerged in fluids as it may
gather in nooks and crannies
