HOW TO USE

The CTS-02 is incredibly easy to use, yet incomparably accurate.

It comes pre-calibrated, requiring no calibration tools.

MEASURING METHOD

The CTS-02 can checks compressive strength, degree of deterioration, and degree of delamination by measuring mechanical impedance.  After hammering each divided block 20 times, the mean value with ±20% is automatically generated. The CTS-02 can be set to automatically discard or save any measurements outside this range. After each hit, the result is displayed only in 0.5 seconds. 

MEASURING CONCRETE WITH THE CTS-02 REQUIRES ONLY A LIGHT TAP

The CT-02 tests and analyzes entire concrete structure surfaces using Area Mode. "X" shown in the picture below represents points evaluated as poor by a specialist with hammer blow sounding. The contour map shows the distribution of the strength indication value of the CTS-02 concrete tester. The results of the specialist and the estimation from the concrete tester are almost equal. Once data is transferred to a PC, you can trace out the estimated value of strength, degree of deterioration, and degree of delamination of the concrete structure. By establishing the distance between the points, you can draw out the contour map on the surface of the concrete structure.
