NOGGIN Non-Metal Pipe & Cable Locator (Subsurface GPR Scanner Technology)

Made in: Canada

Manufacturer: Sensors & Software Inc.

 
Noggin® GPR systems have been recognized by leading researchers as providing the highest quality GPR data in the world.  They are also built to perform in the most demanding conditions around the globe.

Adaptable, proven GPR for any application
Available in four center frequencies and four standard configurations, Noggin® systems can collect data in any environment for any application. Noggins span the depths and resolutions required for subsurface investigations. Choose the combination of center frequency and configuration best suited to your application and terrain.
 
Powerful yet simple data collection
Adjust data collection parameters and easily view data in the field with the high resolution, sunlight visible, touchscreen digital video logger (DVL).

Rugged by design
Noggins are used in a wide range of environments, temperatures, and weather conditions.

Ultra-wide band (UWB) GPR antennas 
Ground-coupled for maximum signal penetration and data quality.

Digital Video Logger 
High resolution, sunlight visible, resistive touch screen with Wi-Fi and USB data transfer.

Flexible data collection 
Change GPR parameters to optimize the survey. Adjust depth, step size, stacking, time window, grid size, triggering and more.
 
Wi-Fi mini-reports
Email a report of line, depth slice or map view data to your customers or colleagues.

Depth slicing
Collect grids of data and view depth slices right in the field.

Map view
Using external GPS, display a plan map view of survey path, grids, field interpretations and flags.

Field interpretations
Add color-coded interpretations and field flags with the touch of a finger.

Optional GPS
Integrated GPS for post-processing and export to Google Earth™, CAD drawings & GIS databases.

The data collection software on the DVL 500 Noggins have default settings to get to work quickly; for line surveys just set the desired depth and start collecting.
For grid collection, the GPR operator sets the grid size and line spacing. The screen prompts the user to collect each line until the grid is complete. It is easy to work around obstructions, skip lines or recollect lines if required.
Once the grid is finished (or any time after at least 3 lines have been collected), the grid data can be processed into depth slices (right in the field!).

For users involved in unusual projects, Noggins also have custom settings to collect data with extreme values:
• Depths to 200 meters (320 m in ice)
• Triggering options include Odometer, Button and Free-Run modes
• Free Run in Time or Free-Run with Speed to collect data on water, snow or ice
• Grids up to 250 x 250m in size
• Zigzag grid collection pattern
• Step Sizes from 5 millimeters to 5 meters
 
Create impressive deliverables easily with EKKO_Project™ software.
After data collection is finished, transfer the data to your computer and organize, edit, process and plot your GPR data with EKKO_Project™. See your data in seconds – spend your time understanding the data, not importing and integrating ancillary information.
EKKO_Project™’s reporting capability outputs interpretations and other information into PDF, spreadsheet (csv), Google Earth™ (kmz) and CAD (dxf) files.
 
Noggin® systems provide valuable insights in countless subsurface applications. As your GPR knowledge and expertise grow, use your Noggin® system to expand your business into new markets. Easily add another sensor, a new configuration or accessories to your existing Noggin® system and your subsurface investigation opportunities are limitless.
 
Applications:
1. Detection of non-metal pipes as PVC, PE, Asbestos, etc. 
2. Detection of any metal type pipes & cables with or without insulation.
3. Detection of all installation networks which are not traceable with other systems.
4. Detection of subsurface storage tanks and reservoirs.
5. Detection and inspection of sewage-related systems.
6. Detection of concrete layers, foundations and underground holes
7. Sub-surface inspection to determine the soil’s damages and crumbles below the surface of
         passages and to reveal underground cavities and holes.
8. Detection for preparing map and updating gas, oil, water and ... pipelines.
9. Detection of missing and invisible valves.
10. Inspection of concrete, bridges, ballast, sub-ballast, etc.
