  • The Profoscope is a versatile, fully-integrated rebar detector and cover meter with a unique real-time rebar visualization allowing the user to actually “SEE” the location of the rebar beneath the concrete surface to a maximum depth of 180 mm.
  • This is coupled with rebar-proximity indicators and optical and acoustical locating aids.
  • Rebar diameter can also be estimated within the specified testing range.
  • The Profoscope combines these unique features in a compact, light device that allows the user to operate this rebar detector with one hand making the task of locating rebars a simple and efficient process.


  • A rebar detector with real-time visualization of the rebars beneath the instrument
  • Visual indication of rebars in close proximity
  • The Profoscope is a rebar detector with the ability to identify the mid-point between rebars as well as the orientation of rebars
  • Optical and acoustical indication of rebar location and minimum cover alert
  • This rebar detector offers neighbouring bar correction
  • Regional settings (metric, imperial)
  • Cordless and single-handed operation
  • Switchable display backlight for dark environments
  • A rebar detector with icon-based language independent menus
  • Start-up test kit allows user to familiarize him/herself with all functions in a comfortable environment, wasting no time on site
