VMC4 – Ultra Compact Metal Detector, olive

Fourth Generation: Ultra Compact Metal Detector for Special Assignments and Shallow Detection

  • Maximum sensitivity in detection of shallow objects
  • Ultra compact design with high-quality carbon telescoping carrying bar
  • Detection of material and wires with low conductivity
  • Pinpoint button for a higher degree of location detection accuracy
  • Integrated GNSS for automatic and manual storage of waypoints
  • Infrared LED display for use with night vision devices and vibration alarm for covert operations
  • Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi interface to internal web server for personal device settings

The ultra compact metal detector VMC4 is the logical successor to the proven and successful VMC1. As such, it meets the most stringent requirements of military mine clearance, especially the requirements of special forces.

The detector can be converted from an ultra compact package into an ergonomic, full-sized detector in just a few steps. Extended detection modes allow the locating of material with low conductivity.

The combination of easy operation and maximum sensitivity leaves the user nothing to be desired. In part, this is because the VMC4 is ideal for all types of soils and shallow bodies of water in a wide variety of conditions.

Another special feature of this new detector generation is that rechargeable batteries can also be charged right in the device, either with a 110 – 240 V/50 – 60 Hz AC adapter or on a 10 – 30 V vehicle on-board power supply.

Suitable for following searches ...

Mines :  Suited for mine detection. Thanks to maximum sensitivity, also responds to mines with low metal content.
IEDs :  Suited for searching for objects with low conductivity and the components typical of improvised explosive devices (e.g. wires and cables).
