Metal detectors with pulse induction for avid detectorists
Enhance your detecting game by getting yourself a pulse induction metal detector. These handy pieces of kit are becoming more popular with time, rivalling the classic Very-Low Frequency detectors most commonly used. They're ideal for use in areas with high ground mineralisation, or use on a salt water beach.
From models designed for beginners to those made with seasoned detectorists in mind, there are metal detectors for all levels of skill.
How do pulse induction metal detectors work?
PI detectors use a single coil to transmit and receive electricity. Sending around 100 pulses of electricity a second creates a magnetic field. When a pulse hits metal, the field then reverses and the detector receives the signal, beeping to let you know you've struck metal.
Garrett pulse induction metal detectors
Garrett pulse induction metal detectors are top of the range models, ideal for experienced detectors. The ACE 400i is a great example and the flagship model of the range. The 10kHz frequency offers greater sensitivity to low and medium conductivity, so you'll be able to detect lead better.
You can also eliminate interference from other detectors with the Frequency Adjust feature, letting you change between slight frequency shifts.
Minelab pulse induction metal detectors
Go for a Minelab pulse induction metal detector, like an Equinox 800, for something with added functionality. A fully waterproof design ensures that you can use this beach pulse induction metal detector in up to 3m of water, perfect for searching beaches, rivers and lakes whilst the lightweight yet robust design ensures that you're never weighed down during long periods of detecting.
An easy to use interface lets you choose between two custom search profiles for each of the four Detect Modes, letting you save your favourite settings. Use the Gold Mode to find gold nuggets in mineralised soil, using a 20kHz or 40kHz frequency.
