Profometer 630 AI – Advanced Concrete Scan Cover Meter
Rebar Detector - Profometer PM-630

The Profometer 630 AI advanced cover meter is a sophisticated instrument extending the application range of the Profometer 600 with the Line and Area Scan Modes and an extensive choice of statistical views.

It is specially suited to measuring large areas, long lines or when comprehensive reporting is required. For example when inspecting tunnels, retaining walls, concrete slab soffits, bridge slabs or dams.

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).

With the flexible concept, the user can upgrade anytime to the Profometer Corrosion functionalities based on the half-cell method. This makes the Profometer a future proof all-in-one solution for rebar assessment and corrosion analysis.

Profometer 650 AI

The Profometer 650 AI extends the measuring modes of the Profometer 630 AI with the unique Cross-Line Mode and further analysis functions. The Cross-Line Mode allows users to measure the rebars of the first and second layer typically arranged in a rectangular mesh.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Cover Estimation

The Profometer 630/650 AI models set a new benchmark in cover reading accuracy. The new artificial intelligence cover estimation feature is based on a self-learning algorithm, with the ability to estimate cover for two layer rebar configurations. The Profometer AI models yield the most accurate cover readings for standard orthogonal two layer rebar configurations with a over 90% probability that first layer cover measurements are within a 2 mm accuracy.
