Rover C / New Edition - Multi purpose 3d metal detector

The 3d metal detectors of the Rover Series are not only simple metal detectors with audio output. Furthermore it is possible to create excellent three-dimensional graphics of the scanned underground. Due to the approved Single-Sensor-Technology those detectors are optimally applicable for detecting hidden objects.

The Rover C is the standard detector of the upscaled class of measuring instruments and it's based on an electromagnetic pulse method which can be used to select anomalies in the target area.

Treasure hunting never was easier than with the 3d metal detector Rover C. This powerful 3d detector and ground scanner belongs to OKM's famous and well approved "Future Series" and includes all functions which are needed for a successful treasure hunt.

The redesigned 'New Edition' of Rover C includes the following special features:

  • display backlight for search at night (on/off switchable)
  • built-in LED spotlights to light up the soil surface in the dark (on/off switchable)
  • integrated auto reversal electronics to facilitate ground scanning process
  • doubled recording speed for rapid scanning on-site
  • simplified and optimized menu navigation and handling for starters and professionals with improved scan results
  • reduced weight and small size of main unit for comfortable long-term use
  • new lightweight small external Power Pack for longer working time and fast recharging
  • desert tan colored casing to prevent damages/overheating caused by insolation
  • wireless stereo headphones for noiseless metal detection surround sound
  • delivered with shock protective, waterproof Peli transportation case incl. wheels and extendable handle for easy transportation

The Rover C has been one of the first metal detecting instruments which was able to perform geophysical and archaeological investigations in high depths and create a three-dimensional graphical image of the underground and its included objects or voids. This multi-purpose metal detecting instrument is able to visualize buried objects under the ground, find metal artefacts like gold and silver, chests, vases as well as voids such as hidden rooms, graves or tunnel systems.

The 3d metal detector Rover C is able to locate the following objects and structures:

  • Metal objects like tanks, boxes and pipes
  • Voids like grave chambers, caves, tunnels or tombs
  • pottery, bricks, underground walls and ruins, buried foundations and other man-made rocks

Because of its easy functionality and practicable handling the detector is specially adviced for all searchers who wants to start up with 3d metal detecting instruments and experience the new technology of 3d ground scanning in a simple way. You don't have to be a professional to use this treasure hunting metal detector. The small and transportable form of the Rover C allows the usage of the ground scanner in different types of terrain. Because of the integrated microprocessor technology ground balance, depth modulation and data storage will be performed automatically by the detector main unit.

Now the Rover C is delivered with a pre-configurated outdoor mini laptop, where the 3d metal detector software and bluetooth data transfer technology is already installed and configurated. No problematic installations and setups are necessary. You can start detecting in 3d right away. The mini laptop with its small size and leight weight you can take anywhere you like. It is specially designed for outdoor activities, bumps and shocks are no longer issues.

Measured data of the Future Series apparatus Rover C can be transfered to any computer or stored temporarily in the internal memory of the detector itself. After completing the measurement the recorded measured values can be analysed in a graphical representation of the 3D software Visualizer 3D. This makes it possible to get exact information about the size and depth of buried materials. Precise object forms and structures are quite visible if enough measured values has been recorded.

Rover C is used by metal detectorists all over the world and suitable for the following hunting tasks:

  • 3d metal detection to find buried metals
  • basic 3d cavity detection
  • 3d ground mapping
  • meteorite hunting
  • treasure hunting

Treasure chest filled with coins excavated in Mexico

Treasure chest filled with coins excavated in Mexico

A group of treasure hunters from Mexico has successful used the metal detector Rover C to locate a buried wooden chest. Inside this box they found many copper coins with very interesting pictures on it. Several scans and the analysis of the 3d graphics of Rover C lead to the amazing treasure find.

Mysterious treasure finding in Greece

Mysterious treasure finding in Greece

This story of Mr. Akis from Greece sounds like a fairy tale. There are some mysterious symbols painted on several rocks in the mountains of Greece and the idea of a big treasure. Based on that signs a thrilling hunt for the cache starts in the heart of the greek mountains.

Ancient glas vase was found with Rover C

Ancient glas vase was found with Rover C

Customers from Greece proudly informed us about this incredible finding with their geophysical instrument Rover C. Although if non-metallic, the device Rover C located this glas vase as an underground anomaly in the measured area. Determination of position and depth of this ancient target was also possible due to the 3d software program. The vase has been detected in a depth of about 1 m in neutral soil conditions.
