  • Checking the consistency of sprayed concrete is essential to ensure the maximum strength of the concrete during the curing process
  • The FC 1K-BT determines exactly the forces required for the needle to penetrate the concrete. This allows reliable conclusions to be made regarding the compressive strength of the concrete during the dry phase
  • Real time or Peak Hold Mode to observe transcients or capture peaks
  • Metal housing for durable usage in harsh environmental conditions
  • Capacity display: A bar lights up to show how much of the measuring range is still available
  • Limit value function, programming of Max./ Min., with output of acoustic and optical signal
  • Safety: If loads exceed 110 % of the measuring range, the device will give clear acoustic and visual signals
  • Delivered in a hard carrying case
  • Turnable display with backlight
  • Selectable: AUTO-OFF function or permanent operation. Chargestatus indicator visualised through LED


Financing is available using KERN hire purchase - easy and convenient.

Hire Purchase gives you the option of purchasing any product from the range against a simple monthly installment. The product value is financed over the period of the agreement. On payment of the last installment, the ownership of the contract item automatically transfers from the contractor to the contractee.

The Hire Purchase Agreement can - if you so choose - be set for a period of between one and five years. All goods paid for in rates are covered by the warranty over the complete time period of the hire purchase

Compared with buying the product, KERN hire purchase offers the advantage that the initial financial investment is largely unnecessary. This is particularly relevant when purchasing a number of products, for example when refitting a laboratory, a company department or a hospital ward. In addition the monthly installments constitute a direct cost and the item does not have to be capitalised by the purchaser.


this is where you can search for spare parts for devices which you are already using. Ideally you will search using the serial number, which is given on the type plated under [SN].
Alternatively you can search by item number, which is also indicated on the type plate under [REF].
When doing this please make sure that the spare part is compatible with your device, by checking the specified scope of application.
