|The Elcometer P120 Rebar Locator, is perhaps the easiest and fastest way of detecting reinforcing bars in concrete.
Widely used before coring or drilling holes to find "safe spots", the Elcometer P120 will not only indicate the rebar's location and direction but will also give an indication of the depth of concrete cover.
Designed in collaboration with the construction industry, the Elcometer P120 is an accurate, reliable, easy to use steel rebar locating instrument, built to last.
Available in both metric and imperial, the Elcometer P120 is supplied with a 100mm (4") search coil, leather case and batteries.
Identification and Orientation of the bar
The Elcometer P120 can distinguish between horizontal and vertical bars.
After locating the steel reinforcement bars in the concrete, rotate the rebar locator's search coil (probe) until the maximum and minimum signals are found.
The maximum signal indicates the bar is running parallel to the search coil's handle, the minimum signal indicates that the bar is running at 90º to the search coil's handle - see diagram.
- Fast, accurate and stable - A loud audio tone and a clear analogue meter for quick accurate scanning. There is no need to keep zeroing the instrument during use.
- High resolution controlled field search head - The strongest signal is in the centre of the search head so the Elcometer P100 is accurate even when working at very close reinforcement bar centres or near metal objects, for example close to scaffolding or metal window frames
- Versatile instrument - Supplied with a standard 100mm (4") head it will also accept the 150mm (6") head and the Borehole probe for locating rebars and locating tendon ducts at great depths
- Highly directional detection field - The Elcometer P120 can quickly and easily distinguish between horizontal and vertical bars - see diagram below
- Headphone socket - Clearly detect the rebar in noisy environments
- Clear Instrument Panel - High quality meter shows signal strength and battery state
