VMH4-VS30 – Metal detector, sand

4th Generation Metal Detector with Exchangeable UXO Search Coil

  • Optimized ergonomics for daily long-term operation
  • Metal detector with UXO search coil VS30 (Ø 30 cm)
  • VALLON UXO mode for Battle Area Clearance (BAC)
  • Flexible application optimization thanks to exchangeable search coils
  • 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
  • Also available as VMH4L with increased battery operating time at slightly higher weight

The VMH4 with the UXO search coil VS30 was specifically developed for the professional detection of larger metal objects such as submunition and grenades. It is the ideal work tool for humanitarian and military battle area clearance (BAC) in den application area of submunition and UXO detection in soils polluted with metal clutter.

The particular UXO mode can be activated within the internal webserver. This is supported by a reduced sensitivity in order to fade out smaller objects such as metal fragments. In addition a FE mode enables the acoustic differentiation between ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

New features such as the integrated web server and GNSS simplify planning and monitoring of large-scale battle area clearance projects. The VMH4 is suited for all soils and shallow waters.

This detector is also available with the larger UXO search coil VS60 with a diameter of 60 cm.

The combination of mechanical durability, intuitive operation and maximum detection sensitivity leave the user nothing to be desired. Getting started just requires adjusting the length of the telescoping bar.

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.

The VMH4 metal detector is also available as VMH4L. It offers an increased battery operating time at a slightly higher weight by using four disposable/rechargeable batteries.

Suitable for following searches ...

Mines :  Suited for mine detection*.
UXO* :  Suited for searching for all types of metal (e. g. shells, grenades, submunitions, etc.) near the surface.
IEDs :  Suited for searching for objects with low conductivity and the components typical of improvised explosive devices (e.g. wires and cables).
