General Information

For the detection of unexploded ordnance (UXO) Vallon GmbH offers the UXO Detector VMX10, a flexible detection system that can be used both portable and vehicle-mounted.

The VMX10 search head is equipped with a detection cable that can be attached to a variety of carrying system configurations. This allows the adaptation of the search head to the different object and search requirements.The search head diameter and the number of windings depend on the configuration of the carrying system. The detection cable is fixed on a suitable carrying system and connected to the control unit.

The VMX10 can operate in strongly mineralized(magnetic) soils, therefore it is equipped with a special detection mode. The necessary soil compensation is fast, simple and a semi-automatic.

The alarm signal is emitted visually via LED-bargraph and acoustically via loudspeaker or headphones. The improve clutter rejection, a delay time can be chosen.By filtering out smaller objects, the VMX10 can be adjusted to different detection requirements.

A differential search head configuration allows detection work in heavily electromagnetically contaminated environments (under power lines, rail tracks, close to transformers..)
