VMC4 – Ultra Compact Metal Detector, olive

Ultra Compact 4th Generation Metal Detector for Special Forces

  • 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 for cable-free access to the integrated web server

The ultra compact metal detector VMC4 is the successor to the proven VMC1 or “Gizmo”, as being nick-named by its many pleased users. 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 full-sized detector in just a few steps. Its slim search coil optimizes the use in dense vegetation.

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 water.

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 of objects with low conductivity and components typical of improvised explosive devices (e. g. wires and cables).
