Magnetometers are to detect archeological sites, shipwrecks and other buried or submerged objects. A boat towable magnetometer or metal detector is used to survey a large area such as the Proton 5 Magnetometer or the Pulse 10 or Pulse 12 Metal Detectors for non-ferrous metals. In researching more localized areas hand held magnetometers or metal detectors are very useful such as the Diver Mag1 or PT-1 for ferrous metals or the SAR-1, Pulse 8X and Pulse 6X metal detectors for non-ferrous metals. Sea-View Diving has a great selection of high-quality metal detectors by JW Fisher Manufacturing.
Hand Held Metal Detectors
JW Fisher Pulse 8X
With a 200-foot depth rated housing and a 6-foot maximum detection range, the Pulse 8X is Fishers top of the line detector. It’s heavy duty construction, and high sensitivity make the Pulse 8X the choice of professionals everywhere.
JW Fisher Pulse 6x
The Pulse 6X has the same top quality construction and 200-foot depth rating as the top-performing Pulse 8X, but with less detection range. The Pulse 6X not only shares many of the same features, but it can be upgraded to the Pulse 8X at any time.
JW Fisher SAR-1
JW Fishers SAR-1 was specifically designed for military, law enforcement and public safety dive teams to locate metallic objects in low visibility environments. The “snareless” SAR-1 has a streamlined design with no external wires or cables which makes this detector the ideal tool for work in environments with potential entanglement hazards.
Hand Held Magnetometers
JW Fisher PT-1
The PT-1 is a sensitive, pinpointing magnetometer. It works equally well on land, and in fresh or salt water. The PT-1 was specifically designed to locate and track iron and steel pipelines and armored cables, but it will also detect all ferrous (iron/steel) targets buried under any kind of material, including concrete, with no loss in detection range.
JW Fisher Diver Mag1
The Diver Mag 1 is a top performing microprocessor driven marine magnetometer detection system with a one nano-tesla sensitivity. This hand-held mag is a super sensitive detector of ferrous metal (iron/steel) that works equally well on land and underwater.
