Subsite Electronics, a Charles Machine Works Company, has introduced the 2550GR Ground Penetrating Radar System featuring a new, user-friendly Windows-based interface that will provide operators with a number of productivity enhancing benefits.

“The 2550GR offers all the same great features as our proven 2450GR,” says Matt Lumbers, product manager, utility locating systems, Subsite Electronics. “It’s ideal for locating any type of utility conduit or piping — metallic or nonmetallic, including PVC — beneath soil, rock, pavement and other surfaces. Plus, we’ve added a number of important software upgrades that will simplify operation and improve performance.”

New software for the 2550GR is designed to make users more efficient. Easy GPS connectivity allows operators to see their path and marks in real time as they scan. A new wireless connection enables users to easily download Web-based maps such as Google Earth.

A new one-touch recalibration button lets operators transition from one scanning surface to another quickly and easily, while the earth-engaged antenna provides better contact on uneven terrain and reduces signal loss.

"We listened to users in the field and have been able to improve the operator experience with significant software upgrades,” Lumbers says.

The 2550GR locates both metallic and nonmetallic pipes and cables to allow one-pass locates at depths of up to 19.7 feet, depending on soil conditions and antenna selection. A 5.6 mph survey speed and digitally controlled radar allow the 2550GR to provide fast, clear images.

In addition to utility mapping efforts, the 2550GR’s advanced locating capability makes it ideal for a wide range of other applications including void and sinkhole detection, concrete detection, and locating underground storage tanks.
