The SIBTEC DmP provides reliable non-destructive detection and analysis of decay in any type of wood. The DmP is a lightweight, battery powered portable tool that uses a 1mm diameter probe to penetrate timber up to 1 metre deep. The tool measures the resistance to penetration of the probe and downloads the resulting data in digital form for analysis.

The DmP is well suited to a wide range of timber decay analysis applications, including: tree safety, dendrology, structural timber surveys and transmission pole testing.

Leaving a virtually undetected test hole the DmP is powered by a rechargeable battery pack which can provide up to 100 tests, making it ideal for field work.

Digital Data Analysis

Distance, probe rotations and force are measured every 0.1mm and transmitted in ASCII format to a computer via the RS-232 serial connector. The graphing facility of any spreadsheet can be used to view and analyse the raw data.

Supplied with the microProbe is the 'Drill Control Centre' software for Win 95/98 which gives a quick view graph and transfers the raw data into Microsoft Excel.
