June 26, 2013 – The Hilti PS 250 Ferroscan determines the position and diameter of rebar present in concrete to help avoid rework on the jobsite. With the PS 250, users can scan large areas of concrete to locate and assess the steel reinforcement concealed beneath the surface of a concrete structure at depths from 4-in. to 6-in. depending on rebar size. Areas such as concrete decks, walls and the like can be analyzed with a 2-D image of the reinforcement on the monitor for on-the-spot structural analysis and depth of cover assessment or printing. The system consists of a hand-guided scanner with colour display, a portable monitor unit for on-site use and accessories necessary for creating image scans. The PS 250 Ferroscan has a rubber coated housing for jobsite protection and is resistant to water and dust in typical jobsite conditions.
