CrossOver adaption for concrete investigations
A customer successfully using our CrossOver CO4080 across several application areas, approached us to develop a bespoke solution specifically for deeper concrete investigations. This customer was aware of the depth penetration limitations of high-frequency GPR instruments traditionally used for concrete investigations. Since they specifically wanted to see deeper into a particular type of concrete structure, they inquired if we could adapt CrossOver for use at 600 MHz and 800 MHz only. Due to the extreme working environment, additional requirements meant the antenna had to be wireless and include an internal battery, as well as meet several non-standard mechanical requirements. The result is the PLT600 and the RQT800, which has enabled this customer to satisfy their needs and meet their objectives.
These antennas have since found further use in high-speed road investigations for near-surface layer mapping.
In addition to our standard instruments and solutions portfolio, Impulseradar offers special engineering services for the development of customized GPR solutions. Such services are available for select customers with an in-depth knowledge of their requirements and a clear understanding of the additional cost involved, and how the tailored GPR solution can be applied to meet their objectives.
Some of our projects have resulted in instruments or solutions that could be of interest to others. Although they aren’t part of our standard offering, we welcome sales inquiries regardless.
