Pulse Echo Tester


The PET (Pulse Echo Tester) uses the Pulse-Echo method (PEM) for a quick pile integrity test (PIT test) on a site with a large number of piles.

A pile test starts when the pile top is struck with a lightweight handheld hammer. The reflected wave is captured and analyzed by the PET’s digital accelerometer to provide information regarding the length and shape of the pile.

The PET is fully compliant with ASTM D5882-16: Standard Test Method for Low Strain Impact Integrity Testing of Deep Foundations and AFNOR P160-2,4 standard for pile integrity testing as well as additional standards.

The PET device (PIT tester) can connect to your MS Windows portable PC or with the Bluetooth version to your Android smartphone or tablet.

The PET package for the PIT test includes all software versions, for PC and for Android.
