The Metal Detector

A metal detector helps you to locate objects which are buried under the ground. It is used to find targets under the surface of the ground without the need to dig. A metal detector can locate all type of metals like gold, silver, copper, aluminium, iron targets and other valuable targets. The indication of a detected object can be via acoustical signal, a digital display, an analog display, a signal lamp or an image or curve.
metal detector eXp 5000 is a Measuring instrument

A measuring instrument measures the anomalies of the underground. So it is possible to locate buried objects, underground voids, water deposits or foundations which are located under the ground.
measuring instrument of newest technology and has been developed in particular for professional use. Through the supplied video eyeglasses buried objects like boxes, pipes, metals but also cavities and grave chambers under the surface becomes visible immediately. Furthermore the video eyeglasses are optimised for the search during the night and also protects against perturbing sunlight at day.

Compact equipment and easy handling

The Earth Imager

Earth Imagers are high technology metal detectors with graphical representation of the searched underground.
Earth Imager eXp 5000 includes an easily removable control unit which makes it easier to use in different areas. With its compact equipment the device is also easy to handle in terrains which are difficult to access.

Fast processing of measured data

The device allows measurements in brilliant resolutions. All recorded data is processed immediately through the integrated pc-module and becomes visible through the video eyeglasses. The size of any measurement is almost indefinite and only limited by the storage capacity of 256 MB. All collected measured data can be transferred afterwards to a personal computer to analyse the results professionally in the software program Visualizer 3D. Besides the measuring values additional information like

  • the date and time,
  • the used antenna,
  • the GPS - Global Positioning System

    GPS is a satellite based navigation system consisting of 24 satellites which permanently transmit the position and time. By calculating the travel time of the signals GPS receiver determine the position and velocity. In combination with a metal detector the position of the current search field can be stored to be used for navigation at a later time.
    GPS coordinates (if GPS has been activated) and
  • the current measurement settings

will be stored in every graphical representation automatically. Date and time settings can be adapted individually to the actual time zone.

Individual operating modes

The geophysical instrument and metal detector eXp 5000 supports different operating modes which can be used for specific underground investigations. According to your personal requirements one of the following operating modes comes into operation:

  • Magnetometer

    A magnetometer is a scientific instrument used to measure the strength and/or direction of the magnetic field and their disturbances. So it is possible to locate buried targets. Magnetometers are used in geophysical surveys to find deposits of iron because they can measure the magnetic field variations caused by the deposits. Magnetometers are also used to detect archaeological sites, shipwrecks and other buried or submerged objects. Magnetic anomaly detectors detect submarines for military purposes. The Magnetometer mode of FS Future Series devices mostly is used to locate ferrous objects which are located near to the surface of the ground. This function is very usefull to eliminate small trash from the surface and in fact prepare the scan area for a professional measurement in the Ground Scan mode.

  • Ground Scan

    Ground Scan is the operating mode where the searcher is able to receive a 3d image of the underground by scanning an area. The searcher has to walk over the ground with an antenna to scan an area. So it is possible to visualize the underground and its anomalies. In the mode Ground Scan it is also possible to measure the position, depth and size of underground objects or voids.
    Ground Scan ( create colored representations of the underground in 3D )
  • Discrimination

    Discrimination is the capability to distinguish between different types of metals such as gold, silver, iron, aluminium and others. By the help of a metal detector with metal discrimination you will be able to determine the exact type of material located under the ground.
    Discrimination ( Metal Discrimination

    Metal discrimination is the possibility to find out the type of metal which is buried under the ground. There is a regulator on the antenna or device, which can be adjusted on a specific type of metal like gold, silver, iron or aluminium. The metal detector filters out all materials which you don’t like to detect. This feature prevents the treasure hunter who is only searching for precious metals from useless digging. Some antennas can discriminate between ferrous and nonferrous metals and other antennas can tell you the exact type of metal.

Ancient artifacts detected with eXp 5000 ground scanner

Ancient artifacts detected with eXp 5000 ground scanner

Those antique objects have been found by a treasure hunter in Lebanon with the OKM ground scanner eXp 5000. This historical find contained different miniature statues of a size of 15 – 25 cm, as well as several coins and rings with inscription. These artifacts are probably from the 17th or 18th century. At this time the today's Lebanon still belonged to the former Ottoman Empire. Elaborations are not known.

In 2010 the eXp 5000 again shows its agility for being a truly professional detector. During a customer training in Sulaymania, Iraq, a mummified cat was found.

This discovery was found at a depth of about 1.5 m. In addition to the mummified animal a few coins were discovered.


World War II medal found in Tunisia

World War II medal found in Tunisia

This medal has been detected by the 3d metal detector eXp 5000 in North Africa. It is obviously a German/Italian locket. The inscription says: "Campagna Italo-Tedesca in Africa. Italienisch-Deutscher Feldzug in Afrika." This metal detector find reminds of the Italian German campaign in Africa in 1937/1942. Mussolini's National Fascist Party created this Italian/German African campaign medal in memory of the actions of the German Africa Corps DAK (Deutsche Afrika Korps) in the North African campaign.

After Italy's capitulation and declaration of war against Germany in September and October of 1943 respectively, further wear of any Italian decorations or awards including the Italian/German African Campaign medal was prohibited.

The front side of the medal shows the Fileni arch (Arco dei Fileni), which was built by Mussolini on the border between the Libyan provinces of Tripolitania and Cyrenaica in 1937 and destroyed in 1970.

Some successful treasure hunters wrote an email with the following content: "Our team found some treasures. We found some bronze objects in an old tomb. The finds are from about 1700 years ago. I attached one of it with this email. It is a bowie knife. [...] I have a basic package of eXp 5000".

The 3d scan image, which has been created by the detector, shows the knife in red and green colors.
