VX1 – Magnetometer Set "Borehole"

Modular Magnetometer System for Use in Boreholes and Underwater

  • Modular magnetometer system for UXO detection down to great depths
  • Detection indication using polarity-dependent LED bar graph and audio signal
  • No sensor adjustment required
  • Bluetooth® interface for data acquisition
  • Mobile data acquisition and powerful analysis with VALLON software solutions
  • Detachable digital probe VSM for flexible use in all VALLON multichannel systems

The VX1 is a modular magnetometer system for ferrous object detection. It is extremely rugged and offers high search sensitivity. It offers easy operation and meets the toughest demands in civil, humanitarian and military ordnance disposal. This versatile device quickly collects data in conjunction with data acquisition devices from VALLON. For professional data analysis and documentation, VALLON's product portfolio offers corresponding software solutions.

In addition, the detachable digital probe VSM offers the flexibility for use in all VALLON multichannel systems.

Data quality can also be optimized through optional addition of the high-performance SEPOS® positioning system.

Suitable for following searches ...

UXO :  Ideally suited for searching for relatively large ferromagnetic objects of all kinds (such as unexploded ordnance, etc.), particularly for data acquisition.
Underwater :  Also suited for underwater use.
Borehole :  Optimized set for use in boreholes—optionally also with SEPOS® positioning system.
