pulseEKKO PRO

Overview

pulseEKKO-PRO-frequencies pulseEKKO PRO is designed to meet the needs of GPR professionals, addressing a wide range of GPR applications.

  • The operating bandwidth is selectable from 12.5 MHz to 1000 MHz to optimize the system spatial resolution required by target size and exploration depth.
  • The fully bistatic design enables variable antenna offsets and orientations for advanced survey types such as multi-offset, transillumination and multi-polarization.
  • The selected components can exploit many deployment configurations available for practical field operation.
  • Data are acquired in Sensors & Software’s industry standard format for analysis with a range of processing and visualization software products.

pulseEKKO PRO is a configurable product.

pulseEKKO PRO components

Starting from a common control center, assemble the pulseEKKO components into a system best suited to your GPR application. Pick the antenna or transducer that provides the desired operating bandwidth.

  • Interchangeable antennas with bandwidths of 12.5, 25, 50, 100 and 200 MHz use fibre optic linked transmitter and receiver electronic modules.
  • Bandwidths of 250, 500 and 1000 MHz are provided by shielded transducer sets. Transducers are units which have antennas and electronics assembled into a monolithic package to optimize performance.
  • Several antennas or transducer sets can be used concurrently when using a multichannel adapter

Control Center

Control-Center The control center packages provides the rugged data display and recording DVL along with the standard cables and power source for basic operations.

Antenna Electronics

Antenna_Electronics The antenna electronics have quick snap-on assemblies to support 12.5, 25, 50, 100 and 200 MHz bandwidth antenna sets. The antenna electronics package contains fibre optic-linked, battery-powered transmitter and receiver electronics modules. Fibre optics provides the high performance needed for low frequency deep GPR sounding. The close coupled electronics configuration address the demanding needs with full digital data acquisition at the receiving antenna.
