VMF4-VS25 – Compact Metal Detector, olive

Compact 4th Generation Metal Detector with Exchangeable Search Coil

  • Ergonomically optimized for long-term operation in the humanitarian demining and military mine clearance
  • Foldable metal detector with small packing dimensions
  • Flexible application optimization thanks to exchangeable search coils
  • Detection of material and wires with low conductivity
  • VALLON UXO mode
  • Button operated pinpoint function
  • Integrated GNSS for automatic and manual storage of waypoints
  • Infrared LED display for use with night vision devices and vibration alarm
  • Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi interface for cable-free access to the integrated web server

The foldable VMF4 metal detector has tiny packaging dimensions and offers the same excellent ergonomics as the VMH4 metal detector. It is ideal for both humanitarian demining and military mine clearance. This applies to all soils and shallow waters in a wide variety of conditions.

It demonstrates its outstanding capabilities in the detection of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in particular.

The combination of mechanical durability, intuitive operation and maximum detection sensitivity leave the user nothing to be desired.

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.
UXO* :  Suited for searching of all types of metal (e. g. shells, grenades, submunitions, etc.) near the surface. Thanks to optionally available UXO search coils, also for searching of objects at moderate depths.*
IED :  Suited for searching of objects with low conductivity and the components typical of improvised explosive devices (e. g. wires and cables).
