ACS A1410 Pulsar Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester

ACS A1410 Pulsar Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester

Couplant Free Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester for Quality Assessment of Concrete Structures

Easy, Couplant Free Testing

The A1410 Pulsar is a compact, ergonomic and easy to use handheld ultrasonic pulse velocity testing instrument for couplant free, on-site quality assessment of concrete structures with up to 2 meters thru-transmission capability. Made of lightweight, shockproof plastic and operates two dry-point-contact transducer arrays. Wear resistant ceramic tips on the transducers are insensitive to rough surface conditions, allowing comfortable and robust operation on site by arbitrary surface condition and removing the need for applying coupling gel to prepare the object surface for testing. The device possesses non-volatile memory that can store 50 measurements (with optional grouping of results) and a USB port for transferring measured data to the external PC.



  • Up to 2.5 meters thru-transmission capability
  • Representation of measurement results in Wave Form and Digital Form
  • SonReb Method implemented in Android App
  • Automatic gain control for easy in-situ setting and operation
  • Accurate crack evaluation
  • Super-compact and ergonomic design
  • Data transfer to smartphone via Bluetooth and data export in Excel
  • Compliance with DIN EN 12504-4, BS 1881 : Part 203 : 1986, ASTM C597 – 16, IS 516 (Part 5/Sec 1) : 2018

Measurement Modes


The A1410 Pulsar is suitable for compressive strength evaluation of concrete. The evaluation is based on the correlation of longitudinal ultrasonic wave velocity in concrete with its mechanical properties. Measurements are performed by thru-transmission of inspection object by means of two transducer arrays. Some of the possible applications of the A1410 are:

  • Evaluation of the load-carrying ability of concrete backbones and posts.
  • Evaluation of porosity and fissuring of concrete.
  • Evaluation of anisotropy in composite materials.
  • Evaluation of the concrete aging
