Ultrasonic Pulse Analyzer


Standard EN 12504-4 ASTM C597


MAIN FEATURES Digital scope, 2 MHz sampling rate, 12 bit resolution Advanced time picking algorithm providing the real arriving time of the pulse Signal processing by FFT method (Fast Fourier Transform) Assessment of concrete strength with combined method Ultrasonic velocity/Rebound index (SonReb) 7 selectable pre-amplifier gains (impulse amplitude) Transmitter pulse 2500 V Transit time up to 16 ms with 0.1µs resolution Slot for memory card to save data (2 GB=30000 tests) 5.7" Multifunctional touch screen display

The pulse velocity can be combined with the rebound hammer value for the strength evaluation of concrete. and giving quick estimates of dynamic modulus of elasticity on site or in the laboratory. voids. It is possible to connect our 58-C0181/G Digital Concrete Hammer to the meter. strength. Also suitable for determining the Dynamic Modulus of Elasticity. Measurement of the Attenuation of the Transmitted Energy. (Fast Fourier Transform. Frequency Spectrum Analysis by FFT Method. 58-C0181/G Digital concrete hammer connected to the 58-E4900 Ultrasonic Pulse Analyzer Concrete Strenght Evaluation combining the Rebound number (coming from the Digital Concrete Hammer or. Main applications Standard UPV measurement with incorporated oscilloscope.58 Concrete quality and homogeneity evaluation Introduction Used for measuring the velocity of ultrasonic pulses through a concrete section providing information on cracks. Very often the transit time only is not enough to identify disomogeneities and little damages as for example microcracking of concrete which are on the contrary well located with this technique by properly processing the acquired waveforms.Algorytm) for determining the natural frequency of the ultrasonic pulse trasmitted throught the material. introduced manually) and the UPV transit time. This determination is suitable for the examination of the pulse path and gives indications about possible cavities. as alternative. multi-layer elements or other similar dishomogeneities. The meter features a very accurate measurement of the transit time. Conforming to EN 12504-4 and ASTM C597. It can also be used for estimating times for formwork striking. Other applications To identify and evaluate: -Crack depth -Honeycombing -Injection quality . combining a typical surface measurement with the deeper UPV transit time obtaining a more reliable and extended information. delaminations.
