The Profometer PM-600 is an advanced cover meter for the precise and non destructive measurement of concrete cover and rebar diameters and the detection of rebar locations using the eddy current principle with pulse induction as the measuring method. Used for:

Rebar Localisation 
Cover Measurement 
Diameter Estimation 
Data Acquisition 
Statistics 
Snapshots

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

The instrument comes along with a Universal Probe including a spot probe especially suited for areas with congested rebar arrangement such as columns, girders and slabs over columns.

Features

  • Visual assistance for scanning speed and signal strength control
  • Settings directly accessible on the measurement screen
  • Graphical display of measured values and minimum cover set
  • Change settings before and after storage
  • PM-Link software for downloading saved data to a PC for analysis and export to third party applications
  • All-in-one Universal Probe including standard, long range and spot probe
  • Spot probe specially for areas with congested rebar arrangements
  • Housing specially designed to be used on-site in harsh environments, including carrying strap, integrated stand and sunshield cover
  • High resolution color display
  • Battery lifetime of > 8h
  • 8 GB Flash memory
  • Dual core processor supporting diverse communication and peripheral interfaces
  • Future proof investment through direct upgrade possibilities to upcoming Profometer products

Applications

  • Locate rebars before drilling holes
  • Measuring the concrete cover depth
  • Acceptance inspection of cover after formwork is removed
  • Quality assurance in mass production of prefabricated concrete elements
  • Rebar grid examination for planned load changes on the structure
  • 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
