Scan, cut and core
with confidence
The MALÅ GPR CX Concrete Imaging System allows you to perform ground penetrating radar
scans of concrete structure simply and safely and present data clearly for real-time and in-thebox 3D data acquisition, display and analysis.
The MALÅ GPR CX solution provides accurate inspection
The CX solutions support the MALÅ GPR High Frequency
of concrete structure such as floors, walls, slabs, bridge
antennas, ranging from 1.2 to 2.3 GHz. The user-friendly
deck for the detection of metallic and non metallic objects
built-in software may be operated by either the push-and-
and features, e.g. rebar, post tension cables, metallic and
turn dial on the monitor, or in a fully remote mode using
non-metallic conduits and pipes, voids, as well as the
the buttons on the antenna. The software supports three
measurement of slab thickness. The CX solution gives
different modes of operation: 2D; 3D Grid; Object mapper
construction professionals a safe and reliable solution to
projects. For further processing, analysis and reporting,
inspect work areas to locate and identify hidden features
the data can be exported to stand-alone MALÅ software
that could cause damage to machinery, or pose a danger to
solutions, such as MALÅ 3D Vision and Object Mapper.
the operator or the structure itself.
“The MALA CX is just a fantastic
instrument and I’m amazed
how effectively you can build a
business around the technology.”

The core of MALÅ CX solutions
The MALÅ CX solution is currently based around the CX12 control unit. The MALÅ CX12 is the third generation of the CX
control unit and when developing the CX12, MALÅ engineers were very careful to merge all the new ideas with the
best features from its predecessor (CX10, CX11). The MALÅ CX12 introduction was very well received by the market
and has further strengthened the MALÅ CX solution as the market leader of ground penetrating radar devices in the
concrete scanning market.
The MALÅ CX solution includes everything needed in one small case roughly the size of airplane carry-on-luggage. At
site, it takes less than 10 minutes from arrival until the first 3D Grid survey is completed. The MALÅ CX solution is widely
appreciated for its field worthy design. As with all MALÅ ground penetration radar solutons, the sensitive electronics is
sealed and protected by an anodized aluminum casing. Cables and connectors are designed to withstand the toughest
building sites and the wear and tear from daily use for years. The CX monitor screen is built for both in-door and out-door
operation and is perfectly visible in direct sun light. The system
supports three antenna frequencies: 1.2 GHz; 1.6 GHz; 2.3

GHz. As an option, the first two also comes with a built-in EM
radiation detector to help detect live wires. With the builtin processing and interpretation software, the CX solution is
designed to effectively deliver results directly in the field. But if
required, data and results from the CX solution can be exported
to stand-alone MALÅ proprietary software, such as MALÅ 3DVision
and Object Mapper, for further processing, analysis and reporting.
