Fully integrated Rebar Detector

Fully integrated Rebar Detector
Get the most trusted instrument for rebar detection,
cover depth and rebar diameter measurements.
The challenge
Concrete structures contain reinforcement bars
to strengthen the construction. The Profoscope
instruments are used to accurately determine the
location of rebars and their cover depth beneath the
surface. The instruments can also assess the rebar
diameter. The Profoscope’s rebar detection function
and its capability of separating rebars which are located
close to each other are groundbreaking.
The Profoscope Solution
Profoscope has a unique real-time rebar-visualization,
allowing the contractor to actually “see” the location
of the rebar beneath the concrete surface. This is
coupled with rebar-proximity indicators and optical and
acoustical locating aids.
The Profoscope+ has all the features of the classic
Profoscope. In addition, the instrument can record
measurement data, manually or automatically. This
increases testing efficiency on the construction site
significantly. The included software tool allows postprocessing or exporting of the collected data.
Made in Switzerland Benefits to the Customer
Versatility; rebar location and orientation, cover measurement and rebar diameter assessment all provided by a
single, fully integrated, cordless instrument.
Ease of use; the intuitive user interface and the the realtime visualization of the rebars make the instrument very
easy to use.
Durability; Sealed housing for use in rough environment
with replaceable protection cover for long lasting
performance, over a wide temperature range.
Memory functions (Profoscope+ only); Two different
modes of operation are supported:
1. Manual data storage allows the user to save concrete
cover and rebar diameter on individually chosen spots.
2. Automatic data storage is especially designed for surface
scans. Every time a rebar is detected, the cover value is
stored automatically.
Data export and analysis (Profoscope+ only); The
ProfoLink software offered by Proceq is a professional tool
to analyze the measurement results.
Fully-Integrated, Cordless Design
The Profoscope is designed for single handed operation.
All functions can be programmed/activated using the two
function keys and the navigation.
The instrument is compact, light and robust. This makes it
suitable for use on a construction site.

Real-time Visualization of Rebars
The Profoscope makes rebar location faster and simpler than ever before. A rifle scope shows the position of the rebar
beneath the instrument in real time. Every Profoscope is supplied with a start-up test kit as standard. This kit allows the
user to familiarize him/herself with the operation of the instrument.

Measuring Range
This graph shows the maximum possible measuring range for the Profoscope, compliant with BS1881 part 204.
Please note: This is based on a single rebar with sufficient clearance to neighboring rebars.
The Profoscope is calibrated
for mesurements on nonstainless steel rebars
fastenend with binding wires
When measuring on welded
meshes the displayed values
must be corrected.
Note: The rebar diameter can be measured up to a cover of 64mm (2.5 inch).
Advanced Features of Profoscope+
Manually recording the measurements of a test series is time
consuming and is an unnecessary source of error. With the various data storage modes of the Profoscope+, taking notes is not
necessary anymore.
