CScope Magnetometer M-SCAN

The M-SCAN Magnetometer can locate deeply buried ferrous objects such as manholes, septic tanks, valve boxes, line identification markers, survey and boundary marker pegs and cast iron gas and water pipes and joints.

The M-SCAN detects ferrous (magnetic) metals at a much greater depth than conventional metal detectors. It is capable of detecting objects up to 5m deep, depending on signal strength.

The M-Scan is a battery powered Locator manufactured in heavy-duty, high-impact ABS with a robust aluminium sensor tube. It has a large, easy-to-read LCD, showing battery level, signal strength and polarity indication backed up with a clear audible response that ensures that the target can be quickly located and identified. Simple one-touch controls for volume and sensitivity are ergonomically positioned and the unique moulded case design with in-built armrest means that the M-Scan can be used for long periods without undue fatigue.

Key Features:

  • High Sensitivity
  • Excellent Detection range
  • 50/60 Hz warning
  • Field polarity indicator
  • Erase feature
  • No response to aluminium, brass or copper
