2 Safety
2.1 General power tool safety warnings
WARNING
Read all safety warnings and all instructions. Failure to follow the warnings and instructions may result in
electric shock, fire and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future reference.
Work area safety
▶ Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
▶ Do not operate power tools in explosive atmospheres, such as in the presence of flammable
liquids, gases or dust. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes.
▶ Keep children and bystanders away while operating a power tool. Distractions can cause you to lose
control.
Electrical safety
▶ Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with earthed (grounded) power tools. Unmodified plugs and matching outlets will reduce risk of
electric shock.
▶ Avoid body contact with earthed or grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radiators, ranges and
refrigerators. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or grounded.
▶ Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions. Water entering a power tool will increase the
risk of electric shock.
▶ Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying, pulling or unplugging the power tool. Keep
cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the
risk of electric shock.
▶ When operating a power tool outdoors, use an extension cord suitable for outdoor use. Use of a
cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
▶ If operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable, use a residual current device (RCD)
protected supply. Use of an RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety
▶ Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when operating a power tool. Do
not use a power tool while you are tired or under the influence of drugs, alcohol or medication. A
moment of inattention while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
▶ Use personal protective equipment. Always wear eye protection. Protective equipment such as dust
mask, non-skid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce
personal injuries.
▶ Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the off‐position before connecting to battery
pack, picking up or carrying the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or energising
power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
▶ Remove any adjusting key or wrench before turning the power tool on. A wrench or a key left
attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in personal injury.
▶ Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This enables better control of the
power tool in unexpected situations.
▶ Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away
from moving parts. Loose clothes, jewellery or long hair can be caught in moving parts.
▶ If devices are provided for the connection of dust extraction and collection facilities, ensure these
are connected and properly used. Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related hazards.
Power tool use and care
▶ Do not force the power tool. Use the correct power tool for your application. The correct power tool will
do the job better and safer at the rate for which it was designed.
▶ Do not use the power tool if the switch does not turn it on and off. Any power tool that cannot be
controlled with the switch is dangerous and must be repaired.
▶ Disconnect the battery pack from the power tool before making any adjustments, changing
accessories, or storing power tools. Such preventive safety measures reduce the risk of starting the
power tool accidentally.

Store idle power tools out of the reach of children and do not allow persons unfamiliar with the
power tool or these instructions to operate the power tool. Power tools are dangerous in the hands
of untrained users.
Maintain power tools. Check for misalignment or binding of moving parts, breakage of parts and
any other condition that may affect the power tool’s operation. If damaged, have the power tool
repaired before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
Keep cutting tools sharp and clean. Properly maintained cutting tools with sharp cutting edges are
less likely to bind and are easier to control.
Use the power tool, accessories and tool bits etc. in accordance with these instructions, taking
into account the working conditions and the work to be performed. Use of the power tool for
operations different from those intended could result in a hazardous situation.
Battery tool use and care
▶ Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type
of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
▶ Use power tools only with specifically designated battery packs. Use of any other battery packs may
create a risk of injury and fire.
▶ When battery pack is not in use, keep it away from other metal objects, like paper clips, coins,
keys, nails, screws or other small metal objects, that can make a connection from one terminal to
another. Shorting the battery terminals together may cause burns or a fire.
▶ Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact
accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts eyes, additionally seek medical help. Liquid
ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
Service
▶ Have your power tool serviced by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts.
This will ensure that the safety of the power tool is maintained.
2.2 Careful handling and use of batteries
▶
▶
▶
▶
▶
Observe the special guidelines applicable to the transport, storage and use of lithium-ion batteries.
Do not expose batteries to high temperatures, direct sunlight or fire.
Do not take apart, squash or incinerate batteries and do not subject them to temperatures over 80 °C.
Do not attempt to charge or continue to use damaged batteries.
If the battery is too hot to touch, it may be defective. In this case, place the power tool in a non-flammable
location, well away from flammable materials, where it can be kept under observation and left to cool
down. Contact Hilti Service after the battery has cooled down.

3.2 Intended use
The product is designed to be used for locating reinforcing bars in concrete, measuring depth of concrete
cover and estimating the diameter of the bars in the uppermost layer in accordance with the specifications
detailed in the technical data provided in these operating instructions.
3.3 Applications
The product can be used for various non-destructive detection applications on steel-reinforced concrete
structures (e.g. locating reinforcing bars in the uppermost layers, measuring depth of concrete cover and
estimating the diameter of the bars detected). The scanning mode used depends on the application. These
fall broadly into the following categories:
Situations and scanning modes
Situation
Scanning mode
Determining the position / number and diameter of
bars for loadbearing capacity checks or depth-ofcover measurements
Imagescan
Avoiding damage to reinforcing bars when drilling
or core drilling
Large-area scan to determine depth of concrete
cover
Quickscan detection, Imagescan or Blockscan
Quickscan recording
For reliable scanning results, the following conditions must be fulfilled
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Concrete surface smooth and flat.
Reinforcement not corroded.
Reinforcement lies parallel to concrete surface.
Concrete does not contain additives or constituents with magnetic properties.
Reinforcing bars lie within ± 5° of right angle to the scanning direction.
Reinforcing bars are not welded.
Neighboring bars are of similar diameter.
Neighboring bars are at a similar depth.
Accuracy specifications are valid only for the first layer of reinforcement.
No interfering influences from external magnetic fields or objects nearby with magnetic properties.
Bars have relative magnetic permeability of 85–105.
The scanner wheels are clean and free from sand and grit etc.
All 4 scanner wheels are in contact and rotate when the scanner is moved across the object to be
scanned.
3.4 Working principle
The scanner is moved directly over the concrete surface. The data collected is stored in the scanner until
it can be transferred to the tablet. The tablet is used for storing large amounts of data and for viewing the
scans. It can also be used for on-the-spot evaluation of scans. The data can also be downloaded to a PC.
The PC software offers advanced analysis options, data archiving functions and the ability to quickly print
out complete reports for documentation purposes.
3.5 Using the system
The scanner can be used without the tablet (for scanning only). The tablet can be carried in the PSA 64 soft
pouch. The first option is advantageous when working in areas that are difficult to access and maximum
mobility is required, such as on a scaffold or ladder. When scanner memory is full (9 Imagescans made, 1
complete Blockscan or 30 m of Quickscan have been recorded) the data can be transferred to the PSA 55
infrared adapter or to the tablet. The tablet can be kept nearby (e.g. at the foot of the scaffold, in a vehicle,
in the site office etc.). When the user intends to make more scans than the scanner is capable of storing in
its memory and wishes to avoid repeated journeys to the tablet, the PSA 55 infrared adapter can be used or
the tablet attached to a belt or carried using the shoulder strap supplied.

3.6 Quickscan detection
The scanner is moved across the surface at right angles to the reinforcing bars. The position and approximate
depth of the reinforcing bars can be determined and marked right away on the surface of the concrete.
3.7 Quickscan detection with accurate depth measurement
Before scanning, the operator is required to enter values for the diameter of the reinforcing bars and the
spacing between the bars. The scan is then carried out as described for Quickscan detection.
3.8 Quickscan recording
Data is recorded automatically as the scanner is moved over the surface. This data is subsequently
transferred to the tablet where it can be evaluated and the average depth of cover determined. If the data
is downloaded to a PC, the information can be evaluated, archived and a report printed. Further evaluation
options allow Quickscan recordings to be imported and evaluated automatically, statistical evaluations
prepared and scans displayed in the form of large-area evaluations.
3.9 Imagescan
A reference grid is attached to the area to be scanned using the adhesive tape supplied. After selecting the
Imagescan mode with the scanner, the rows and columns of the grid are scanned following the instructions
on the screen. The data is transferred to the tablet where the image can be viewed. The position of the
reinforcing bars relative to the concrete surface is indicated. Bar diameter can be estimated and bar depth
determined. If the data is downloaded to the PC application, this information can be evaluated as on the
tablet, with the additional advantage of allowing a series of points to be recorded along with associated
depth and diameter, and the data saved for future use. Reports can be printed. Further evaluation options
allow Imagescans to be imported and evaluated automatically, statistical evaluations prepared and scans
displayed in the form of large-area evaluations.
3.10 Blockscan
A reference grid is attached with adhesive tape to the area to be scanned. After selecting Blockscan mode,
the user is prompted to select the first area to scan. An Imagescan is then made. After completing the
Imagescan, the user is prompted to select the next area to scan. This should be adjacent to the previous
area. Attach the grid and then scan as before. This procedure can be repeated for up to 3 x 3 Imagescans.
The data is transferred to the tablet. The Imagescans are automatically stitched together to form a larger
image. The reinforcement layout can then be viewed over the whole area. Individual Imagescans can be
selected for evaluation by zooming in. If the data is downloaded to the PC application, this information can
be evaluated as on the tablet, with the additional advantage of allowing a series of points to be recorded
along with associated depth and diameter, and the data saved for future use. A report can be printed.

data is contained in memory, the bar shown next to the diskette symbol is filled. The bar is shown unfilled
when no data is contained in memory.
5.7 Quickscan
Quickscan can be used to quickly detect the positions
and approximate depths of reinforcing bars, which can
then be marked on the surface. This procedure is known
as Quickscan detection. Another function in Quickscan
mode is accurate depth measurement, which requires
that values for bar diameter and bar spacing are previously entered. Alternatively, the data can be recorded
and evaluated on the tablet or using the PC application.
The average depth of cover over the reinforcement over
large stretches of the surface can thus be easily determined. This is known as Quickscan recording.
Note
The scanner detects only reinforcing bars that lie
at right angles to the direction of travel. Bars that
lie parallel to the direction of travel will not be
detected. Make sure that the object is scanned
in both the horizontal and vertical directions. An
incorrect depth may be calculated for bars that lie
diagonal to the direction of travel.
Switch on the scanner. The Quickscan symbol is selected first automatically. Use the Confirm button to
select the Quickscan function from the main menu.

A signal tone is emitted.
Maximum signal strength is indicated.
The approximate depth of the bar is indicated (lowest depth value indicated = center of the bar).
The bar is positioned along the center line of the scanner
and may be marked on the surface using a PUA 70
marker. Depth measurement accuracy can be increased
by entering the correct rebar diameter or by switching to
accurate depth measurement mode.
5.9 Quickscan with accurate depth measurement
The measuring mode “Quickscan with accurate depth
measurement” is selected by pressing the Confirm button.
The correct diameter must be known and previously
entered. The bar spacing distance must also be entered
if within the 36 mm≦s≦120 mm (1.41"≦s≦4.72") range.
This value can be taken from building plans, confirmed
by chipping away a channel in the concrete to view the
bars, or measured using Quickscan detection.
Note
A rebar spacing distance s≦36 mm (1.41") cannot
be measured.
English
Printed: 14.11.2016 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5314776 / 000 / 00
11
The bar spacing distance can be calculated automatically
using the Quickscan detection function by searching for
the center of the bar and pressing the red Record button
when the scanner is over the mid point of the bar.
Next, search for the mid point of the next bar and again
press the Record button. Bar spacing is then calculated
automatically and recorded.
If the spacing distance is known, the value can also be
entered manually using the arrow buttons.
After setting the bar diameter and the spacing distance,
the procedure is exactly the same as for Quickscan
detection.
5.10 Quickscan recording
Note
Before making a Quickscan recording, always
make an Imagescan or a Quickscan detection
scan in both directions in order to determine
the orientation of the rebars in the top layer, to
minimize the risk of scanning rebar lap joints and,
where applicable, to immediately see whether
the concrete contains ferrous materials that could
have a detrimental effect on the accuracy of the
scans.
Note
Reinforcing bars that lie at right angles to the direction of travel will be detected and automatically
recorded. Check to ensure that the settings are correct before beginning recording.
Do not press the Record button before placing the scanner at the point where the scan should begin. The
scan should not, under any circumstances, be started or stopped while the scanner is directly over a bar.
Keep an eye on the display (observe a distance of at least 30 mm (1.81") to the nearest reinforcing bar).
Failure to do this may result in incorrect or misleading measurements.
Note
Do not lift the scanner from the surface before stopping the recording or setting a marker.
To record the position and depth of all reinforcing bars detected, place the scanner on the surface and use
Quickscan detection to find a position where there are no bars present. Mark the starting point with a PUA
70 marker and press the Record button. The diskette symbol appears on the screen, indicating that the
scanner is recording data. Move the scanner over the surface.
12
English
Printed: 14.11.2016 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5314776 / 000 / 00
At the end of the scan, take care to ensure that the end point is not directly over a rebar. To stop recording,
press Record again. Use a PUA 70 marking pen to mark the end of the stretch that has been scanned.
A stretch of up to 30 m (98 ft) in length can be recorded before it is necessary to transfer the data to the
tablet or the PSA 55 infrared adapter. It is also possible to record several separate stretches (max. 10) that
add up to a maximum of 30 m (98 ft).
The data recorded can be transferred to the tablet for analysis.
5.11 Quickscan settings
The Quickscan settings are shown on the left-hand side of the display. The settings can be made before
making a Quickscan or a Quickscan with accurate depth measurement. Use the arrow buttons and Confirm
button to access the settings.
Limited depth scan
Note
This measurement mode allows rebars to be located within a specified depth range.
Note
When using the device in this mode, the preset depth must take a clearance distance from the rebar
into account.
Minimum depth
Use this setting when scanning a surface and looking specifically for bars that are located within a certain
depth. For example, if checking for 40 mm minimum depth of cover, set the value to 40 mm (1.57") (for quality
assurance measurements add an extra 2 mm (0.08") to account for any accuracy limitations). A signal tone
is emitted and the LED lights only if a reinforcing bar located within 40 mm (1.57") of the surface is detected.
Use the arrow buttons to select the minimum depth
function and then press Confirm.
Minimum depth function disabled
When the value is set to “0”, the function is deactivated
and appears as above. Use the arrow buttons to enter
the desired depth value and then confirm the setting by
pressing the Confirm button. The system returns to the
main menu.
Note
If reinforcing bars are located at depths greater than the minimum depth set, no signal tone is emitted
and no LED lights.
Scan direction
This setting is used to set the direction in which Quickscan recording is performed. Although they have no
direct effect on any measurement values later obtained from the tablet or PC application, the settings help to
ensure that individual Quickscan recordings are subsequently correctly displayed in Hilti PROFIS Ferroscan
MAP (data evaluation and presentation application) and that the depth values correspond with the actual
surface of the structure. This makes it easier to subsequently locate the positions of areas with inadequate
cover. The scanning direction is saved together with each scan.
English
Printed: 14.11.2016 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5314776 / 000 / 00
13
Select the desired scanning direction and press the
Confirm button.
Bar diameter
This setting must be made in order to obtain an accurate depth-of-cover measurement (= rebar depth).
Depth can be measured accurately only when correct rebar diameter has been entered.
Use the arrow buttons to select the bar diameter function and then press the Confirm button.
If no bar diameter is selected, the scanner will calculate
the depth as though the average bar diameter of the
relevant standard setting range were set.
5.12 Setting a marker
The surfaces of many structures contain obstacles that make it impossible to record the scan without lifting
the scanner from the surface. Examples of such obstacles are piers or columns on a wall, door openings,
expansion joints, pipes, scaffold bars, corners etc.
If an obstacle is encountered, a marker can be set. This interrupts the scan and allows the user to lift the
scanner away from the surface, place it beyond the obstruction and then continue scanning. It also indicates
where certain objects are located within a scan, providing additional information that creates a reference
between the scan data and the actual surface.
To set the marker press and hold Confirm whilst in recording mode. The diskette symbol will be crossed out,
indicating that recording has been suspended and a marker has been set.
Then lift the scanner from the surface while keeping the
Confirm button pressed. If necessary, mark the position
on the surface using a PUA 70 marker. Place the scanner
back on the surface beyond the obstacle, release the
Confirm button and continue scanning. The marker
will be shown as a vertical line in the scan data when
viewed on the tablet or in the Hilti PROFIS Detection PC
application.
5.13 Imagescan
Imagescan is used to create an image of the reinforcement layout. The depth and diameter of the bars
can be determined or, respectively, estimated. A reference grid must first be attached to the wall. Use the
adhesive tape supplied for this purpose. This tape is designed specifically for sticking to concrete structures
and can be torn off the roll by hand at the correct length. For most surfaces, a 10 cm (3.94") length of tape
at each corner is adequate to secure the grid. If the concrete surface is very damp or dusty, use the brush
supplied to clean off any dirt and dust. The reference grid may then have to be attached by applying a strip
of tape along the full length of each edge.
Alternatively, a grid can be marked directly on the surface. Using a straight edge (such as a piece of wood) as
a guide, mark out a 4 x 4 grid with the parallel lines spaced at intervals of 150 mm (5.9"). The holes punched
in the paper reference grid can also be used to mark the positions of the grid lines on the concrete surface.
Switch the scanner on and select the Imagescan symbol. The battery state of charge is displayed together
with the number of Imagescans currently held in memory (a maximum of 9).
14
English
Printed: 14.11.2016 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5314776 / 000 / 00
Select Imagescan from the main menu. The Imagescan
screen is displayed.
A representation of the grid appears on the screen with
a suggested starting point (triangle). This is always at
upper left and will be suitable for most scans. Image
data will be generated only for areas of the grid that have
been scanned both vertically and horizontally. In some
cases, obstacles in the scan area may prevent this (e.g.
a pipe penetrating a beam). The starting point may be
changed in such cases in order to allow the area to be
scanned optimally. Use the Arrow buttons to change the
starting point.

The scanner emits a double beep at the end of the row and automatically stops recording. This procedure
should be repeated for each row and column while observing the instructions shown in the display.
When all rows have been completed, the columns should
also be scanned in the same way.
The recording of any row or column may be interrupted
before reaching the end by pressing Record again. This
may be necessary if an obstacle prevents the full path
being scanned. Similarly, an entire row or column may be
skipped by starting and stopping the recording without
running the scanner over the grid. Please note that no
image will be created for areas of the reference grid that
are not scanned in both directions.
It is possible to repeat the previous row or column by
pressing Cancel. This may be necessary if the user is not
sure whether the path to be scanned has been followed
accurately or if the scanner slipped out of position.

cable supplied by Hilti.
The PSA 92 USB data cable is used to transfer data from the tablet to the computer.
5.16.5 Tips for scanning and evaluation
The object is too narrow to scan or reinforcement is too close to an outside edge to be scanned properly
Use a thin sheet of non-metallic material (e.g cardboard,
wood, polystyrene foam, etc.) as an overlay that extends
beyond the edge. The scanner can then be moved over
the sheet to beyond the edge of the structure. Note that
the thickness of the overlay sheet must be deducted
from any depth measurements. The thickness of the
overlay sheet can be entered in the PC application. This
value will then be automatically deducted from any depth
measurements.
The surface is rough.
Rough surfaces (e.g. concrete surfaces with exposed
aggregates) cause additional noise in the signal and may
mean that the depth or diameter of a bar cannot be
determined. In such cases it is also advantageous to
scan through a thin overlay sheet. Also in this case, the
thickness of the overlay sheet must be deducted from
any depth measurements.
“Interference” in images
English
Printed: 14.11.2016 | Doc-Nr: PUB / 5314776 / 000 / 00
21
Interference in images may occur due to:
•
•
•
•
•
Scraps of reinforcement in the concrete
Tie wires where rebars cross
Aggregates with ferromagnetic properties
Ends of bars lying parallel to the scanning plane
Ends of bars lying at right angles to the scanning
plane (standing bars)
Note
Diameters and depths calculated in the area where
interference occurs must be treated with caution
as they may be inaccurate.
Scanning columns and beams for making penetrations
In such cases where the reinforcement must not be damaged, ensure that Imagescans are made on at least
three sides of the component in order to ensure that shear bars (placed at an angle in the concrete) can also
be identified.
Simple diameter check
A simple, rough check of the diameter of the bars in the
first layer can be made by deducting the depth of the
second perpendicular layer from that of the first. This
assumes however that the two layers touch each other
or are at least very close.
