A metal detector is useful for finding any metal object buried underground or underwater. A magnetometer can be used as a metal detector. But a magnetometer can detect only magnetic (ferrous) metals. Also, while a metal detector’s range is rarely more than 2 metres, a magnetometer can detect large objects, such as cars, at tens of metres. Magnetometers are very useful at detecting archeological sites, shipwrecks and other buried or submerged ferrous objects.
The Pulse 6X has the same top-quality construction and 200-foot depth rating as the top-performing Pulse 8X. But the Pulse 6x has less detection range. The Pulse 6X shares many of the same features as the Pulse 8X. In addition, it can be upgraded to the Pulse 8X at any time.
The specific design of the SAR-1 makes it ideal for military, law enforcement and public safety dive teams. Specifically, to locate metallic objects in low visibility environments. The “snareless” SAR-1 metal detector has a streamlined design with no external wires or cables. In conclusion, this makes this detector the ideal tool for work in environments with potential entanglement hazards.
The PT-1 is a sensitive, pinpointing magnetometer. It works equally well on land, and in fresh or saltwater. The specific design of the PT-1 makes it ideal to locate and track iron and steel pipelines and armoured cables. In addition, it will also detect all ferrous (iron/steel) targets buried under any kind of material, including concrete. It does this with no loss in the detection range.
One of the great features of an underwater detector is its ability to work above and below water. Equally like the Pulse 8X, some detectors come with all the accessories needed for land and underwater detecting. This makes them, in effect, two detectors in one. The Pulse Induction Technology (PI) used in underwater detectors make them ideal for searching deserts and other areas with high mineral content. They are ideal because PI machines ignore mineralization in the ground. Another advantage of Fishers PI machines is the interchangeable coil feature. This enables attaching different sized heads to the detector’s electronics unit. This makes the Pulse 8X ideal for meteor hunters. They are ideal because they can attach the large 8 x 48-inch oval. In addition, you can mount it on the front of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV).
Many recreational scuba divers discover the fun and excitement an underwater metal detector can bring to their diving. Sea-View Diving has a great selection of high-quality metal detectors by JW Fisher.
