Localizer 3000 - New metal detecting experience

The Earth Imager are the stars of our "FS - Future Serie". They can represent graphical measuring results without using any additional computer. Because of the high amount of optional accessories they are extendable individually. Every customer can purchase only that what he needs for his purposes.

Localizer 3000 is a ground penetrating instrument which you can use if you're looking for buried metal objects such as pipes, boxes, weapons and jewelry. Also you can detect voids such as caves, rooms and graves.

If you are using Localizer 3000 to scan an area you can see immediately a picture of the ground on the monitor. All necessary data will be calculated in the internal 300 MHz Intel«-compatible processor. If you are using the professional imaging software Visualizer 3D you are also able to determine the position and depth of objects.

There are some other optional components which you can use with Localizer 3000. Further informations you find on the bottom of this page.

Integrated features (standard):

  • Magnetometer
  • Single Sensor
  • External Power Supply
  • Differential Sensors
  • Wireless Headphones
  • Visualizer 3D, data cable

Additional features (optional):

3D Software + Data cable

All measurements will be stored automatically in the internal memory of the device. After the transmission of all records to a computer, detailed analysis can be done in the software program Visualizer 3D.

Differential Scan Probes

To locate low lying objects you can use the differential probes. While using these antennas you will get a higher resolution of the underground.

DDV-System: Disc Detector Visualization System

With the DDV system the device is able to discriminate between different metals like gold, silver or iron. Additionally to an audible signal you will get a visual representation on the monitor of the device.

Super Sensor

With the Super Sensor you can get high resolution images. The integrated discrimination electronic helps you to distinguish between ferrous and non-ferrous metals as well as cavities.

The Localizer 3000 includes different operating modes. The following section explains some of them.

Magnetometer Magnetometer

In this operating mode you can examine the ground regarding to ferromagnetic metals, like for example iron. The indication takes place through an audible oscilloscope.

Ground Scan Ground Scan

The operating mode "Ground Scan" allows a graphical measurement. The measured underground will be represented directly on the monitor of the device. This measured data can be stored in the memory of the device and transfered later to a computer. With the professional software Visualizer 3D these measurements can be analysed regarding to the position and depth of objects.

Side Scan Side Scan

The operating mode "Side Scan" provides a quick discrimination between cavities and metals. A live representation shows you fast and efficient all anomalies in the inspected area.

Metal Detector Metal Detector

The detector is particularly dedicated to locate small objects situated near to the surface (e.g. coins or rings). With the detector you have also the possibility to examine potential findings relating to their material. For example you can recognize, if an object is made of gold, silver or iron.

Here we present you some discoveries, which has been located with this geophysical metal detecting instrument. If you also made a discovery or know somebody who made a fantastic finding with our metal detectors, just write us an email or use our online form!

Localizer 3000 detects a piece of a meteorite

Localizer 3000 detects a piece of a meteorite

Because meteorites consists mainly of silicate minerals or iron nickel alloy they can be located by using a metal detector. With the Localizer 3000 such a small piece of meteorite has been found.
