Concrete Scanner

The ESS Concrete Scanner has been designed to find even the deepest targets while still providing high-resolution. The unit boasts the most diverse sensor suite on the market today. This versatile unit can be used to locate rebar, post tension cables, conduits, power lines, pipes, voids, and asphalt and concrete thickness.

Dual frequency GPR antennas produce high-resolution scans without sacrificing penetration depth. The 2 GHz antennas sense objects to approximately 2 feet depth, while the 750 MHz antennas detect objects as deep as 6 feet.

The included hardware allows three arrangements for optimal ergonomics: Mount the tablet to the device and use the integrated handle. Or attach the extended handle, with multiple locking angles, for floor surveys. Finally the extended handle can be used to keep the tablet at eye-level by inserting it into the shipping case.

Advanced analysis and reporting software provides cross-section views, depth slices and 3D views.
