Latest in ground penetrating radar on display at World of Concrete

GSSI, the world's leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will be highlighting its latest GPR technology at the 2018 World of Concrete conference, to be held January 23-26, 2018, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth #C3719. On display will be a new affordable UtilityScan GPR System, StructureScan Mini XT all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system, and the new Palm XT miniaturized GPR antenna for the StructureScan Mini XT. 

Stop by the booth to see the new UtilityScan GPR system, a compact unit that makes it 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.  The electrical design 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 also be equipped with the LineTrac accessory, which helps locate specific power sources situated underground, including AC power and induced RF energy present in conduits. 

Also on display is the StructureScan Mini XT - the newest generation of GSSI's popular all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system. Rugged, compact, and flexible, StructureScan 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. StructureScan Mini XT is the perfect blend of price and performance, and is backed by a two-year warranty. It features an intuitive touchscreen interface and six-button control options.

Visitors to the booth can also see a demonstration of the newest accessory for the StructureScan Mini XT. The Palm XT Antenna is a miniaturized GPR antenna that is designed to greatly enhance the capabilities of the StructureScan Mini XT. 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. Designed to withstand challenging construction sites, the Palm XT is an excellent choice for contractors who need to perform concrete scanning services.
