As a Authorized dealer we are engaged in providing the broad assortment of Elcometer, UK make 'Concrete Inspection' Equipments. The Elcometer P120 Rebar Locator provides a simple means to detect reinforcement bars in concrete, identifying the rebars location, direction and an indication of the depth of concrete over the rebar.
Identification and Orientation of the bar :
The Elcometer P120 can distinguish between horizontal and vertical bars. After locating the steel reinforcement bars in the concrete, rotate the rebar locators search coil (probe) until the maximum and minimum signals are found. The maximum signal indicates the bar is running parallel to the search coils handle, the minimum signal indicates that the bar is running at 90° to the search coils handle
SEARCH HEAD ORIENTATION
Despite having a circular face, the search head is in fact directional and has a sensitive axis running across the face parallel to the line of the handle. The relative orientation of this axis to the line of the rebar affects the signal strength, and it is by this means that the direction of a rebar can be determined, and complex structures resolved.
