Profometer PM-600 – Advanced Concrete Cover Meter – Entry Level Model


Profometer PM-600 is an advanced cover meter for the precise and non destructive measurement of concrete cover and rebar diameters and the detection of rebar locations using the eddy current principle with pulse induction as the measuring method.


Based on the new generation Profometer Touchscreen unit, the instrument offers real time control over the measurement procedure directly on site. The high resolution color display allows best possible measuring and analysis of the statistical data for an entire working day (battery lifetime > 8h).


The instrument comes along with a Universal Probe including a spot probe especially suited for areas with congested rebar arrangement such as columns, girders and slabs over columns.
