The detector comprises a telescopic tube, two probe-antennae which transmit and receive the magnetic field are mounted at the ends of the extensions. Target indication is by a high-readability colour LCD display on the front panel of the control unit and an acoustic warning signal with adjustable volume control. The embedded GPS receiver allows data logging capability in real time during operations: GPS information (Date, Time, Latitude, Longitude) can be recorded together with significant points and data is stored into a non-volatile memory at a rate of one event per second.
The CEIA DSMD deep search ground search metal detector is an active electromagnetic induction (EMI) device based on the transmission of an alternated, low frequency magnetic field and the reception of the variations introduced in the magnetic field by buried metal masses. It is designed for the accurate detection of deeply buried large metal masses, including unexploded ordnance, whilst discriminating against ground magnetic anomalies.
