The VMX10 large loop metal detector is a flexible system for locating deeply buried metal objects and unexploded ordnance (UXO). The VMX10 can be operated by one or two people.

The size of the VMX10 search coil can be configured based on various object and search requirements, e.g. 1 x 1 m, 1 x 2 m or 2 x 2 m. The detection properties depend on the coil configuration here.

The ergonomics of the electronics unit have been developed specifically for high comfort and long work days. The built-in OLED display is also extremely user-friendly: The function information is provided in various national languages and the LED display for detection signal strength also simplifies operation.

The selection of 14 measuring ranges ensures higher detection reliability through object-based and size-based suppression of sources of interference. This makes it possible to selectively filter for the objects being sought.

In addition, the user can choose between 40 operating channels to suppress electromagnetic interferences. As a result, the VMX10 offers optimal conditions for smooth searching. This is true both for heavily mineralized and magnetic soils because it is equipped with a detection mode specifically developed for these conditions.

The VMX10 allows for operation optionally using 4 D-size batteries or using a rechargeable battery.

Suitable for following searches ...

UXO :  Ideally suited for searching for relatively large metal parts of all kinds (such as unexploded ordnance, submunitions, etc.) down to great depths.
