Profoscope

Profoscope is a versatile, fully-integrated rebar detector and cover meter with a unique real-time rebar visualization allowing the user to actually "SEE" the location of the rebar beneath the concrete surface to a maximum depth of 180 mm.

This is coupled with rebar-proximity indicators and optical and acoustical locating aids. Rebar diameter can also be estimated within the specified testing range. The Profoscope combines these unique features in a compact, light device that allows the user to operate this rebar detector with one hand making the task of locating rebars a simple and efficient process. In addition, Proceq's rebar detector convinces through its intuitive user interface making rebar detection easy.
