With a 200 foot depth rated housing and a 6 foot maximum detection range, the Pulse 8X is Fishers top of the line detector. It's heavy duty construction and high sensitivity make the Pulse 8X the choice of professionals everywhere. This commercial-grade metal detector is used by fire rescue, law enforcement agencies, and military units worldwide.
The claim-to-fame of this pulse induction detector is its ability to ignore minerals in the environment while maintaining high sensitivity to all metal targets. It is not affected by highly mineralized salt water, coral, rocks with a high iron content, or magnetic (black) sand; all of which drive conventional metal detectors crazy. The Pulse 8X detects all metals from coins and jewelry, to anchors and cannons; and does it on land, or in fresh or salt water. The diver is alerted to presence of a metal target by both visual readout (shown on the meter) and an audio output (heard in the underwater earphone). The detection range for a target is unaffected by the medium between the detector's coil and the metal object. Performance does not vary whether detecting through air, water, silt, sand, or solid coral.
The Pulse 8X comes with all the accessories needed to use the detector on land or dive to depths of over 200 feet. The standard package includes a corrosion proof PVC handle for underwater use, an anodized aluminum handle for land use, underwater and land headphones. The package also includes AC and DC battery chargers, a hip-mount kit for the electronics housing, rugged Cordura carry bag, spare parts kit, and JW Fishers Search Team hat.
Powered by an internal 9 volt rechargeable battery pack, the detector will easily run all day on a full charge. Recharge the battery overnight, and it's ready for another full day of hunting.
A complete line of interchangeable coils are available which gives this detector tremendous versatility. Two of the coils can be deployed from a boat; the operator can be topside with the electronics unit, and have a coil on the bottom searching for metal. See below for additional options.
JW Fishers Pulse 8x has been rated the best underwater metal detector by the US Department of Homeland Security's SAVER program.
JW Fishers SAR-1 was specifically designed for military, law enforcement and public safety dive teams to locate metallic objects in low visibility environments. The "snareless" SAR-1 has a streamlined design with no external wires or cables which makes this detector the ideal tool for work in environments with potential entanglement hazards.
The SAR-1 has both visual (ten ultra bright LEDs) and sensory (vibration) target indicators. When the detector approaches a metal object the handle begins to vibrate and a few of the LEDS illuminate. As the bright yellow search coil gets closer to the target, the vibration becomes more rapid and more of the high intensity red LEDs light up. The number of LEDs that illuminate is helpful determining the size and burial depth of the target. Small targets may only illuminate 2 or 3 LEDs whereas larger targets will light up the complete display.
The SAR-1 works equally well in fresh or salt water, and detects a variety of targets including shell casings, handguns, rifles, shotguns, knives, UXO, mines, and any type of explosive device containing metal. The unit will also detect large targets (such as automobile or aluminum boat) up to 6 feet. This high performance Pulse Induction metal detector detects both ferrous and nonferrous metal objects, while ignoring minerals in the environment. The detector will not give false signals from salt water, coral, high iron rocks, or other ground mineralization, as some other types of detectors do. As with all JWF detectors, the detection range is not affected by the material between the search coil and the metal target. Whether detecting through air, water, silt, sand, mud, or rock, the detection range remains the same.
The SAR-1 detector is constructed of corrosion proof materials and comes with AC and DC battery chargers, and a carry bag. Rechargeable batteries power the detector for 12 hours before requiring an overnight recharge. Batteries can be easily field replaced to allow around the clock operation. Unlike some other detectors, the electronics compartment can be opened for inspection or battery replacement without voiding the warranty.
