Profometer® Advanced Concrete Cover Meter

Advanced Models PM-600 / PM-630 / PM-650

Profometer Advanced Concrete Cover Meters

The PM-6 Series uses a new generation and design-protected Profometer Touchscreen Unit. These instruments offer unique on-site measuring and analysis functions, and a real time control over the measurement procedure.




  • Housing specially designed to be used on-site in harsh environments, including carrying strap, integrated stand and sunshield cover
  • High resolution color touchscreen allowing best possible measuring and an analysis of the data for an entire working day (Battery lifetime >8h)
  • Dual core processor supporting diverse communication and peripheral interfaces
  • Future proof investment through direct upgrade possibilities to upcoming Profometer products

The Technology

The Profometer PM-6 Series uses electromagnetic pulse induction technology to detect rebars. Multiple coil arrangements in the probe are periodically charged by current pulses and thus generate a magnetic field.

On the surface of any electrically conductive material which is in the magnetic field eddy currents are produced. They induce a magnetic field in the opposite direction. The resulting change in voltage can be utilized for the measurement.

Advanced signal processing allows localization of a rebar, determination of the cover and estimation of the rebar diameter. This method is unaffected by all non conductive materials such as concrete, wood, plastics, bricks etc. However any kind of conductive materials within the magnetic field will have an influence on the measurement.

Profometer PM-600 Overview

Locate Mode
With the Locate Mode you can precisely detect
the rebar location and direction as well
as measure the cover and the rebar diameter.
Locate Mode
  • Visual assistance for speed and signal strength control
  • Settings directly accessible on the measurement screen
  • Spot Probe specially for areas with congested rebar arrangements



Profometer PM-630 Overview

The sophisticated Profometer PM-630 augments the application range of the Profometer PM-600 with the Line and Area Scan Modes and an extensive choice of statistical views.
Single Scan
Single-Line Scan Linear scan of the cover across the first layer of rebars over a long distance, with or without diameter measurement.
  • Measuring over long distances
  • Increased rebar detection capabilities (higher resolution)
  • Zoom in to scale rebars according to your needs
  • Change settings before and after storage
  • Display with cover curve or signal strength curve

Area Scan The grid display of the Area Scan Mode allows a simplified view of the measured cover data. It is best suited for a combination with potential field measurements. Single Scan
  • Individual grid size can be selected
  • Use in combination with Canin+ half-cell potential measurements for corrosion analysis


Profometer PM-650 Overview

Discover the Profometer PM-650 extending the features of the Profometer PM-630 with the unique
Cross-Line Scan measuring mode and analysis functions.
Single Scan
Cross-Line Scan
The Cross-Line Scan extends the Multi-Line Scan with the unique functionality of combining scans in the X- and Y- directions.
  • Measuring the rebars of the first and second layer typically arranged in a rectangular mesh

  • The signal strength spectrum can be seen in addition to the cover and diameter
