MXPDA -  Pushcart magnetometer system

MAGNETO® MXPDA is used for the detection of ferromagnetic objects in small and medium sized areas.Equipped with an optional RTK DGPS the system allows geo referenced measurements of the survey area.

This is especially helpful when carrying out surveys in rough terrain, as it is no longer necessary to chart and set up the tracks. The data and the measured tracks are displayed directly on the tablet (10”). The tablet PC acts as the control unit of the measurement system. All measurement signals are digitized by the data acquisition unit MXPDA and transferred to the PC. The PC saves the data as measured tracks faster as ever before on a hard disc.

When using the optional DGPS, the system will also geo reference all the measurement points with an accuracy of ±1cm.All system components are directly fixed to the carrier. The power supply is placed in the carrier harness. This harness is also used to carry the system in environments where wheels will not work.
