GSSI has upgraded the SIR 4000 ground penetrating radar (GPR) control unit.

The controller is designed to bridge the legacy of GSSI’s traditional analog antennas with next-generation digital offerings, giving it more flexibility by supporting a wide range of users in numerous applications. The updates bring the StructureScan 2D collection module to the controller, simplifying its use for the concrete construction industry.

The StructureScan 2D collection module offers users greater flexibility for using the controller in concrete construction industry applications. The module includes high-frequency antenna-specific setups to ensure survey efficiency. It enables the controller to automatically recognize smart antenna setups.

Additionally, the update offers users the option of on-the-fly automatic gain to better enhance the data display, while still saving the file in the original raw format for post processing. The updated collection module also includes a horizontal zoom function, allowing users to increase the size of the data setup to 8x to resolve smaller targets, and a “save image” shortcut for quick reports.

Fully integrated, the SIR 4000 provides a 10.4-inch high-definition LED display, a simple user interface, plug-and-play GPS integration and Wi-Fi-enabled data transfer functionality. The SIR 4000 is designed with a number of exclusive features, including a casted aluminum chassis that offers temperature stability and an impact-resistant design that combined, delivers a full IP 65 rated able to withstand tough jobsite conditions.

About GSSI

Geophysical Survey Systems Inc. develops, manufactures and sells GPR equipment, primarily for the concrete inspection, utility mapping and locating, road and bridge deck evaluation, geophysics and archaeology markets. The equipment is used all over the world to explore the subsurface of the earth and to inspect infrastructure systems non-destructively. GSSI created the first commercial GPR system nearly 45 years ago and continues to provide a wide range of GPR equipment available today.
