New Solution Empowers Construction Teams To Scan Concrete Structures

IDS GeoRadar, a leading provider of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Interferometric Radar solutions, has launched C-thrue XS, a handheld, dual polarisation GPR scanner for hassle-free concrete inspection, and NDT Reveal, an integrated software solution for analysing and managing subsurface data. The new solutions empower construction teams to scan concrete structures efficiently, detect elements deeper beneath the surface, and make informed decisions about where to cut or drill safely.

Building on the success of the C-thrue, launched in 2018, the smaller C-thrue XS is designed for use in hard-to-reach areas where construction professionals can easily manoeuvre the compact device. Its ergonomic and lightweight design of less than half a kilogram makes the scanning process a more comfortable experience. Thanks to its dual-polarisation capability, users can do comprehensive scans in one go. This feature allows the scanner to send and receive signals in both horizontal and vertical orientations, ensuring more accurate and detailed results. Construction professionals benefit from a streamlined overall workflow and faster access to insights. With automatic real-time processing, the device promptly highlights targets and potential problem areas.

NDT Reveal — Easily Analyse, Visualise and Manage GPR Scan Data

NDT Reveal easily integrates with CAD-based software, including BricsCad and Bricsys 24/7, and helps construction teams analyse, visualise and manage the collected GPR data. By providing a user-friendly interface with various visualisation options, including 2D and 3D scans, the software suite facilitates a comprehensive understanding of the scanned structures. With NDT Reveal, users can manage GPR data analysis and reporting in one place, which helps optimise workflows of large complex projects. They can also upload collateral information such as photos, site sketches and CAD drawings, and make them accessible to all team members.

“Conducting a detailed inspection of concrete structures can be cumbersome and time-consuming. Many teams do not achieve the necessary precision, especially in hard-to-reach areas,” says Davide Morandi, Director Detection Product Management, at IDS GeoRadar. “IDS GeoRadar’s C-thrue XS device simplifies the scanning process even in constrained environments while NDT Reveal provides construction teams with a comprehensive understanding of the scanned structures in both 2D and 3D. These innovations are transforming nondestructive concrete inspections, boosting productivity and safety, and enabling better-informed decisions on-site.”
