Vallon VMX10 – EMI-Detection of UXOs in strongly mineralized soils
For the detection of unexploded ordnance Vallon GmbH offers the VMX10, a flexible manually operated detection system that can be used both, portable and vehicle-mounted. The user can specify the size of the search head diameter from 0.3 meters to 4.8 meters or 15 meters circumference according to his requirements. For this purpose a detector cable is fixed on a suitable frame and connected to a battery-powered electronics unit. The electronic system automatically adapts itself to the selected search head geometry. Therefore, the user does not need to make any adjustments. The operation of the VMX10 is identical to Vallon’s hand-held metal detectors for mine detection.
The VMX10 has a mode to search in non-mineralized soils, and a mode for searching in mineralized soils. Semi-automatic soil compensation of mineralized soils can be performed in a few seconds. The alarms are displayed via LED display and are indicated acoustically through speakers or headphones.
For data recording with the VMX10 Vallon GmbH offers the VALLON EVA2000® Mobile software package for the Vallon Field Computer VFC2 (PDA - Personal Digital Assistant) so that survey data can be recorded, displayed and exported to a PC/laptop.
The data are transferred to the Vallon Field Computer VFC2 via cable or *BLUETOOTH® technology and are recorded in real time. Optionally, the GPS coordinates can be recorded at the same time, so that an accurate georeferencing of the metal detector data can be made. Thus, the operator is able to evaluate the quality of the measurements directly on site without having to export the data to other systems.
The software package VALLON EVA2000® 2.29 is installed on PC, tablet PC or laptop and allows in addition to the functionality of VALLON EVA2000® Mobile the convenient evaluation of the measurements, so that the characteristics of suspicious points can be analyzed.
