Original Press Release:

Market Launch of the New Integrated PROFOSCOPE Rebar Detector and Covermeter

(Singapore / Singapore, July 2009) Switzerland-based Proceq announces the launch of its latest product - Profoscope - to meet the pressing needs of the construction and building industry looking for an accurate rebar detecting instrument that is also affordably priced. Proceq claims that the new Profoscope offers the best-in-class mix of attractive features to price ever seen by the market.

The Swiss-made Profoscope is small, light and has no connection cables. The ergonomically designed instrument fits comfortably in the palm of the hand for easy one-handed operation and provides both visual and acoustic indications of what lies directly beneath the concrete surface.

At first glance, the Profoscope user sees an apparently conventional instrument with a large graphic LCD display and selectable backlight that can locate rebar, measure cover depth and rebar diameter. However, the special positioning of the electromagnetic coils allows a symmetrical triangulation of the rebar configuration and thus tells the user that the Profoscope is actually located between two rebars or directly on top of one. This is a best-in-class feature that sets the Profoscope apart from any other similar instrument on the market and is especially useful when the user needs to drill into reinforced concrete and avoid damaging the expensive rotary drills and carbide drill bits.

Other benefits of the Profoscope: a fully-integrated and compact design, user-friendly operation, a language-independent menu, wide measurement ranges, regional settings and much more.

The Profoscope is supplied with a start-up test kit, a custom-made canvas bag as well as the necessary product documentation and accessories. As with all Proceq products, sales and full service support is available from Proceq's global locations (

The Profoscope comes with a 24-month equipment warranty. When purchasing the Profoscope, the buyer is also offered the possibility of purchasing extended warranty coverage.
