GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will be showcasing its UtilityScan® compact GPR unit at INTERGEO 2021, which will be held at the Hanover Exhibition Grounds, Hanover, Germany Sept. 21-23, Booth 23. Also on display will be the 200 HS antenna and the StructureScan Mini XT. Visitors to the booth will be able to get demos of all the equipment on display.
The UtilityScan compact GPR unit is extremely portable, easy to maneuver in tight survey areas and is the smallest utility locating GPR system on the market. UtilityScan features a robust 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.
The 200 HS antenna is ideal for geophysical, geotechnical, or environmental applications that require high reliability under challenging survey conditions. The 200 HS antenna is paired with the HS Module and wirelessly connects to a Panasonic Toughpad G1 or SIR 4000 control unit. The wireless HS Module incorporates system electronics, an internal GPS, and connectivity ports in an IP-65 rated housing. The 200 HS uses GSSI’s patented HyperStacking technology, which improves signal to noise performance and increases the antenna depth penetration, nearly double the conventional GPR antenna designs, under all soil conditions.
The StructureScan™ Mini XT is the tool designed for today’s professional concrete scanner and built to handle all your job site and survey needs. This rugged system is designed with an integrated display for single operator data collection and interpretation. Easily and accurately locate the position and depth of metallic and non-metallic objects in concrete structures, including rebar, conduit, post-tension cables, pan decking, voids and service utilities. Reduce safety risks, financial exposure, costly delays and provide the full-range of services to your customers by adding this concrete scanner to your toolbox.
