Nokta Impact Metal Detector Features
Search Technology of the device
Impact metal detector uses a very low frequency VLF technology that has been used in traditional metal detectors. The Impact device will receive the digital signal to its main control unit and it will display as a number on the screen.
The number is a digital identifier of metal and called Digital Target ID and you can turn the digital signal to an audio tone, which will be issued by the built-in speaker or can be heard by headphones too.
You will notice that the tone of sound varies according to the target’s metal in some search modes.
Impact is the first metal detector device that has a multiple different search frequency, and that option is not available in many traditional metal detectors, which were created and programmed in the past for searching at one specific frequency by a special number in kHz, and they are designed for a specific purpose such as discovering small coins or small gold nuggets… etc.
in impact device you can switch them by touching one of the control buttons that are in the control panel at the bottom of the screen.
This feature is suitable for many metal search applications because it makes the device practical and varied.
Ground Balance Settings
You can use the Ground balance settings according to three different ways:
- Manual: the user calibrates the ground balance value manually.
- Automatic: the device will perform ground balance automatically without any entrance of the user and you will notice that it changes according to the current conditions of the ground.
- Ground Tracking: on that Setting, the ground balance is carried out by the device automatically, but with continuous follow-up changes in the ground under the search coil where the balance corresponds to the type of land, such as rocks, stones, or clay.
With the iMask feature, the user can cancel or filter out a specific range of numeric values for the target ID. For example, you can select a particular range, which is linked to gold and precious metals while hiding the area of non-precious metal values.
You can filter the objects by masking the sound tone on target detection and you will find that the device ignores this target.
The feature of iSAT can eliminate the faulty signals, which usually produced by searching in large mineralization areas and hot rock areas too.
Audio Discrimination Features
Tone Break: it is one of the best features, that enables to set different breakpoints for any target tones on the Target ID scale.
Simply, you will find that each specific range of the target ID produces different tones. For example, there is a special tone for the gold range and another different tone for the iron.
