Hilti PS 50 multidetector takes concrete scanning deeper
By Renée Francoeur
October 27, 2015 – The new Hilti multidetector PS 50 brings new depth to area scanning, according to the company. The self-calibrating tool uses pulsed radar technology to detect a variety of concealed objects: ferrous and non-ferrous, wood or plastic and electrical conduits at depths up to 5-7/8 in. in concrete. Two additional sensors allow for the classification of those objects and the detection of live wire, Hilti adds.
Applications include drilling anchor holes or through penetrations for pipe and cable installation, locating underfloor heating pipes or other pipe and cable runs, and setting anchors in hollow or thermally activated slabs.
