Locating, Inspecting, & Fault Finding Utilities Equipment for Electric, Gas, Water, Sewer, and Data
Metal detectors are useful for finding metal inclusions hidden within objects, or metal objects buried underground. They often consist of a handheld unit with a sensor probe which can be swept over the ground or other objects. If the sensor comes near a piece of metal this is indicated by a changing tone in earphones, or a needle moving on an indicator. Usually the device gives some indication of distance; the closer the metal is, the higher the tone in the earphone or the higher the needle goes.
The metal detectors we currently offer in our product line up are:
The Magnastick MSL Magnetometer seeks ferromagnetic objects by sensing their magnetic fields. Dual sensors detect the magnetic lines of flux naturally present in ferrous (iron) materials and are not affected by non-ferrous materials such as brass, aluminum, or copper. Ergonomically designed and balanced, the Magnastick receiver is made of durable aluminum for years of trouble free use. The aluminum sensor tube is water proof up to the key pad and when submerged will locate ferrous objects under the water surface.more
