General Information

This new design Vallon Underwater Metal Detector VMW1 is a retractible detector for demining. It is supplied with a small hard case, housing the complete mine detecting set. Its small size and light weight facilitate underwater as well as ashore operations. In spite of the compact design, Vallon made no concessions regarding its detection performance. The VMW1 is offering utmost detection sensitivity and detection reliability.

Its state-of-the-art technology as well as its easy operation ensure high equipment dependability.

The rugged search head contains the Digital Pulse Induction Sensor with integrated noise reduction features. Its shape allows easy operation in difficult and dense vegetation ashore as well as in shallow or deep water and mud. This unique design allows precise pinpointing and an excellent recognition of targets at small distance to each other 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 in a standing, kneeling or swimming position.
