The Profometer PM-650 is a sophisticated instrument extending the measuring modes and application range with the Line and Area Scan Modes, an extensive choice of statistical views, the unique Cross-Line Mode and further analysis functions. The Cross-Line Mode allows users to measure the rebars of the first and second layer typically arranged in a rectangular mesh.

It is specially suited to measuring large areas, long lines or when comprehensive reporting is required. For example when inspecting tunnels, retaining walls, concrete slab soffits, bridge slabs or dams.

Based on the new generation Profometer Touchscreen unit, the instrument offers real time control over the measurement procedure directly on site. The high resolution color display allows best possible measuring and analysis of the statistical data for an entire working day (battery lifetime > 8h).

Applications

  • Especially suitable for large areas and long line scanning (e.g. in tunnels) and when comprehensive reporting is required
  • Acceptance inspection of cover after formwork is removed
  • Quality assurance in mass production of prefabricated concrete elements
  • Measuring the concrete cover depth
  • Rebar grid examination for planned load changes on the structure
  • Locate rebars before drilling holes
  • Statistical evaluation of cover according to DBV (German Concrete and Construction Association)

Locate Mode

With the Locate Mode you can precisely detect the rebar location and direction as well as measure the cover and the rebar diameter.
  • Visual assistance for speed and signal strength control
  • Settings directly accessible on the measurement screen
  • Spot Probe specially for areas with congested rebar arrangements
  • Automatically detects inclined rebars

Statistics & Snapshot Views

  • The statistics and snapshot views allow comprehensive review of the measured data directly on the screen.
  • The statistics view presents a graphical overview of the distribution of cover measurements. The snapshot view shows cover for each rebar with the diameter displayed as a number.
  • Graphical display of measured values and minimum cover set
  • Easy inspection of the measured values directly on the screen
  • Change settings before and after storage
  • Reopen stored files to continue measurements
  • Export the data to a PC via the PM-Link software

Cross-Line Scan

The Cross-Line Scan extends the Multi-Line Scan with the unique functionality of combining scans in the X- and Y-directions.
  • Measuring the rebars of the first and second layer typically arranged in a rectangular mesh
  • The signal strength spectrum can be seen in addition to the cover and diameter
By changing the Offset- and Gain-slider positions the signal strength range and resolution can be set and accordingly
