What is ACE?

ACE (Automatic Certification Evaluation tool) is a combination of several precision measuring devices that work together to make center inspections more efficient and accurate. ACE was developed in-house by our Equipment Specifications and Certifications team, with important help from several team members in other departments.

ACE utilizes five digital dial indicators with custom designed sleds, three digital levels and four digital laser distance measuring tools. These tools all connect, via Bluetooth technology, to the inspector’s laptop, where a custom-made software records the data and loads it into a data collection spreadsheet. All of this works to allow one inspector to complete all of the requirements for an annual inspection of a lane in less than five minutes.
