GSSI showcases latest ground penetrating radar technology at Canadian Concrete Expo
GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will be highlighting its latest GPR technology at the 2019 Canadian Concrete Expo, to be held February 6-7, 2019 at The International Centre in Toronto, Canada, Booth #571.
On display will be the StructureScan™ Mini XT and StructureScan™ Mini LT all-in-one concrete inspection GPR systems, the Palm XT miniaturized GPR antenna for the StructureScan Mini XT, and the UtilityScan® GPR System.
Stop by the booth to see the StructureScan Mini XT – the newest generation of GSSI’s popular all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system. Rugged, compact, and flexible, Mini XT is ideal for locating rebar, conduits, post-tension cables, and voids. The Mini XT can help identify structural elements, including pan decking and concrete cover, and can also provide real time determination of concrete slab thickness.
Also, on display will be an accessory for the Mini XT, the Palm XT Antenna. The handheld Palm XT antenna turns a basic Mini XT into an advanced system by giving users unparalleled access in tightly spaced areas and enabling overhead scanning.
Visitors to the booth can also see the UtilityScan system, a compact GPR unit that is extremely portable and easy to maneuver in tight survey areas. This model sets a new standard in performance and price. UtilityScan features a robust new wireless antenna that can handle required data rates and is ruggedly built to withstand challenging field conditions.
This unit uses GSSI’s patented HyperStacking technology, which has proven to increase depth penetration in challenging soils, while also providing high near surface data resolution. The unit also has a backup Ethernet connection if Wi-Fi is not desired or allowed on a particular jobsite or facility. The UtilityScan can be equipped with the LineTrac™ accessory, which helps locate specific power sources situated underground, including AC power and induced RF energy present in conduits.
Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. is the world leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, primarily for the concrete inspection, utility mapping and locating, road and bridge deck evaluation, geophysics, and archaeology markets.
GSSI equipment is used all over the world to explore the subsurface of the earth and to inspect infrastructure systems non-destructively. GSSI created the first commercial GPR system nearly 50 years ago and continues to provide the widest range and highest quality GPR equipment available today.
