Future I-160, 3D Metal Detector
The Future I-160 metal detector is able to detect different ground structures and natural features of the ground. Its a professional metal detecting instrument with a 50 cm long multi-sensor antenna. Inside are 16 elliptical area multipoint sensors (EAMS) with a resolution of 0,015 uT and a sampling rate of 50 Hz. This very unique multi-sensor array is able to reflect scanned ground data in a graphical representation within the Visualizer 3D software.
This makes the Future I-160 metal detector able to detect various sub-surface structures and hidden items like:
- Electrical Conduits
- Water Pipes
- Storm Drains
- Gas Pipes
- Buried objects like Canisters, Tanks and Boxes
- Structural objects like Foundations and Cellars
- Voids, Graves, Backfilled Areas, Caves and Tunnels
The Future I-160 metal detector is a professional measuring instrument with a very high resolution antenna of 50 cm width. Compared to the Future 2005 with its 100 cm antenna the Future I-160 has a four times higher density of measured data. Compared to the Earth Imager with its 16x lower resolution the device is most suitable for the professional archeological and industrial use. This fact is reflected also in the graphical representation inside the software Visualizer 3D.
Detailed graphics are the basis for an exact determination of the size and depth of objects. Because of the compact form of the antenna the device is not only usable for the measurement in even ground conditions. Besides the usual graphical representation the device provides two more particularities. On the one hand it makes buried object immediately visible with the horizontal live picture and on the other hand a typified ultrasound scan can be created with the vertical antenna.
The device includes the following functionality:
- Accoustical magnetometer
- High resolution ground scans in 3D
- Live picture with horizontal ground scan antenna
- Live picture with vertical pin pointing antenna
- Graphical analysis on a computer
Because of the integrated microprocessor technology ground balance, depth measurement and data storage will be performed automatically by the Future I-160 metal detector. The evaluation of the measured data takes place at the computer where the scanned area can be analyzed in a three-dimensional graphic with the help of the software Visualizer 3D.
