DX300 Diver Magnetometer
The system comprises a robust DX300 electronic module together with an RX200 (80cm (32") length) detection probe, a slim Bonephone (or optionally Underwater Headphones) and a universal mains charger.
The RX200 probe utilises a pair of high sensitivity Fluxgate magnetic sensors with a 600mm (approx 2ft) spacing, these are built into a robust GRP housing together with a pre-conditioning combiner circuit. A two metre polyurethane sheathed cable couples the probe to the control unit via an Ikelite connector. One of 4 sensitivity modes can be selected, this allows the system to be progressively de-sensitised as a target is investigated.
The audible output can be preset to be silent or at a low frequency such that a minor change in pitch can be observed, this is how the presence of metallic items is determined. The proportional nature of the audio response allows the object to be accurately pinpointed or tracked as in the case of a pipe or cable. The nature of a response can also be helpful in determining the way a buried object is laying – such as an anchor or cannon.
PIPE TRACKER - This system can be used to locate and follow ferrous sub sea pipes down to burial depths of several meters.
CABLE TRACKER - As per pipe tracker above.
UXO DETECTOR- The DX-300 has been successfully used on numerous contracts to locate unexploded ordinance (UXO).

SALVAGE & ARCHAEOLOGY - An invaluable tool to locate all buried ferrous material down to burial depths of several metres.
POLICE SEARCH TEAMS - Ideal for a range of applications including locating discarded weapons and homing in on targets in very low viz such as submerged vehicles. The DX300 will pinpoint a vehicle in 10 metres depth from the surface prior to diving to confirm.
