The James Rebarscope is the digital version of a classic rebar locator, rebar finder which enables the user to not only locate reinforcement bars but also determine rebar depth and the rebar size. The Rebarscope is also capable of locating both ferrous and non-ferrous metals in concrete and other non-metallic construction materials such as copper, aluminium, some stainless steels, wire, and more.

The eddy current sensor is specifically designed to react to the outer surface of the metal object. It is uninfluenced by small metal particles in the concrete, whether the concrete is fresh or hardened, wet, or dry. This sensor has also been designed with temperature compensation circuitry as well. The temperature compensation circuitry not only improves accuracy and performance but allows the operator to use the equipment without a “zero” procedure first. As always only one sensor is required for all depth ranges and functions of the equipment.

The latest in microprocessor technology not only conditions the signal from the sensor for more accurate and dependable results but provides the user with the information they need. Rebar diameter can be estimated by using a simple system of comparison. All this is fully automated for consistent, repeatable results with increased resolution over previous models.

The microprocessor can also statistically analyse the data,
searching automatically for minimum cover points, and the least cover of a
group of points. A Cover Map or display of cover points as a symbolic map
of a structure can assist the user in finding problematic areas. Built in
memory can store over 80 thousand individual data points for later
