Strength Meter NOVOTEST IPSM-U+T+D (Pulse Velocity Tester)


The pulse velocity tester IPSM-U+T+D allows to measure the strength and homogeneity of the concrete, bricks and other materials under the composition and surface sounding in products and designs for construction projects, inspection of buildings and structures, according to ASTM C597-16 (Standard Test Method for Pulse Velocity Through Concrete).  Has the determining of the depth of cracks by the surface sounding probe function and also flaw detection mode (A-scan).

Measuring the strength and uniformity of construction materials by ultrasonic method NOVOTEST IPSM-U+T+D is designed for :

  • detection of voids, cracks and defects encountered in the production and operation of structures (for process control and inspection of facilities);
  • control and uniformity of concrete strength (Guidelines MDS 62-2.01), construction and composite materials, structures, bridges and waterworks;
  • measure the depth of cracks in the tested materials;
  • determine the density and elastic modulus fiberglass and so on;
  • definitions of sound index of construction ceramics and abrasives;
  • estimates of the porosity, fracturing and anisotropy of the material;
  • assess the degree of maturity of the concrete in a monolithic concreting;
  • visualize the presence of a signal (A-scan);
  • the possibility of test the concrete (and other) constructions for internal defects, discontinuities;
  • improve the accuracy of measurement of time intervals by allowing manual selection of the moment trip meter.


  • Calculating the strength, density and elastic modulus of the pre-installed calibration graph
  • The calculation of the sound of the index of abrasive products
  • Memory of the results
  • Communication with PC
  • Further processing of the results using a specialized computer program
  • Lack of critical results to the pressing force transducers
  • Ability to work on large databases with transducers for sounding through-sounding
  • Improved ratio of “signal-to-noise”
  • Universal converters for emission and reception of high-impact
  • The increased excitation voltage probe pulses

The increased power of the excitation probe pulses, high-quality amplification path can significantly increase the base of sounding and operating on materials with high damping.

The probe for surface sounding has a base of 120 mm, suitable for sounding concrete cubes samples.
