The Guartel Technologies MD5 (H) Mine/Metal Detector is designed for Counter IED, ERW and mine clearance operations. The MD5 (H) utilises high speed pulse induction coupled with digital processors and custom designed software. The MD5 (H) is self-testing and self-calibrating; use of a zero/comp button function allows the user to discriminate readings from targets in close proximity to each other.
The MD5(H) is of one-piece construction using high performance carbon fibre composite tubing and aerospace grade aluminium. The detection halo is connected to a telescopic carbon fibre tube making the MD5 (H) very compact for carriage and stowage, extending the telescopic tube allows the MD5 (H) to be used in the lying, kneeling and standing position. The MD5 (H) has a folding control turret handle which houses the zero/comp button and LED display module.
Power is supplied from 2 x D cell batteries allowing up to 12 hours of use.The selectable alarm allows the user to have vibrate, visual or audible alarms either singularly or in combination. Volume can be adjusted and the MD5 (H)is supplied with an earpiece, which when fitted mutes the onboard loudspeaker.
