Strength Meter NOVOTEST IPSM-U (Pulse Velocity Tester)

Portable pulse velocity tester IMSP-U is designed for rapid non-destructive testing of the concrete, bricks, composite and other building materials strength . Ultrasonic device allows user to measure thickness and strength of the cross-cutting and superficial methods by measuring the speed and time of ultrasonic waves in a controlled objects – materials, according to ASTM C597-16 (Standard Test Method for Pulse Velocity Through Concrete).


Key features of the ultrasonic strength meter IPSM-U:

  • determine the density and elastic modulus fibreglass and so on;
  • definitions of sound index of construction ceramics and abrasives;
  • estimates of the porosity, fracturing and anisotropy of the material;
  • assess the degree of maturity of the concrete in a monolithic concreting.

  • Calculating the strength, density and elastic modulus of the pre-installed calibration graph
  • The calculation of the sound of the index of abrasive products
  • Memory of the results
  • Communication with PC
  • Further processing of the results using a specialized computer program


The increased power of the excitation probe pulses, high-quality amplification path can significantly increase the base of sounding and operating on materials with high damping.

The probe for surface sounding has 120 mm base, suitable for sounding concrete cubes samples.
