Garrett Metal Detectors
Take your metal-hunting efforts to another level with a Garret metal detector on the job. Whether you need a detector for security, treasure-hunting, or personal pleasure, you will find a Garrett detector ready-made for the task. Plus, the Garrett proprietary line of accessories can make your metal-hunting ventures more fruitful.How do metal detectors operate?
Metal detectors harness the power of electromagnetism to find buried metals. Various types of metal detectors exist, each designed to do a specific task. That said, many metal detectors use similar components, including:
- Field Coils
- Pick-Up Coils
- Voltage Sensors
- Protective Housings
- Audio Tone Generators
- Digital Readouts and Controls
While the average manual modern metal detector includes sophisticated circuitry, most still work on the same principles that earlier models operated under. The field coil creates an electromagnetic field that interacts with the pick-up coil and produces a slight electromotive force. When the search heads pass over a metal object, the object causes disturbances within the field that translate into audio or video signals for the operator.What are some features of effective metal detectors?
User-friendliness is a design factor in every Garrett metal detector. Many models incorporate features that include:
- Multiple search modes
- Depth indicators
- Battery life indicators
- Adjustable arm supports
- LCD displays
- Target I.D. capabilities
- Large side-scan detection fields
- Pinpoint search capabilities
Garrett makes a wide range of detecting equipment. Whether you need a Tesoro traditional field metal detector, underwater metal detector, pinpoint metal detector, or handheld metal detector, Garrett has a manual model designed to get the job done.Can Garrett metal detectors find deeply buried objects?
Units with larger heads can often find objects buried more than a few inches underground. Garrett makes a variety of head sizes, including larger ones.How long does the battery charge last on Garrett metal detectors?
Battery-life will vary by usage and by the type of device in use. That said, these detectors are designed to provide you with many hours of uninterrupted time. In addition, you are always free to bring along extra batteries if you plan on spending extended time in the field.Can these metal detectors tell the difference between metals?
Yes. Garrett metal detectors include sensitive digital electronics that can tell the difference between various kinds of metals under the proper conditions.What kinds of metal detector accessories are available?
Metal detectors are useful in a variety of settings and situations, and there are many accessories to choose from that can help you to successfully negotiate such situations. Included in this list are:
- Pinpointing Heads
- High-frequency search coils
- DD search heads
- Digging tools
