General Information

This new design Vallon Metal Detector VMC1 is a retractable detector for demining. It is supplied with a soft carrying bag housing the complete mine detecting set. Due to its small packing size it needs extremely little space for transportation and thus facilitates operation in impassable areas.

In spite of the compact design Vallon made no compromise with regards to the detection features. The VMC1 is a fully adequate Vallon Metal Detector offering highest detection sensitivity and detection stability.

The modern used technology as well as simple and easy to understand operation elements ensure a high demining relability. The metal alarms are very clear so that the operator can work without a headset and any external cables.

The rugged search head contains the Digital Pulse Induction Sensor with integrated noise reduction features. The shape allows easy operation in difficult and dense vegetation, rocks, shallow water and mud. This unique design provides precise pinpointing and an excellent separation between narrow placed targets without loss of detection speed. The telescopic pole consists of three tubes. The length is easily adjustable even during operation in just a few seconds so that detection work can be done either positon.
