JW FISHER PULSE 12 BOAT TOWED METAL DETECTOR
The most powerful boat metal detector for ferrous and non-ferrous metals
Fisher’s most powerful boat towed metal detector for ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
With its 24 foot wide and 16-foot deep detection envelope this detector will locate a variety of targets including aluminum boats, brass propellers, outboard motors, steel anchors, bronze cannons, and gold bars. One of the key features of this detector is the control unit which can accept inputs from 3 search coils. Using three coils instead of one lets the search team cover three times the area with the same amount of time, fuel, and manpower.
The claim-to-fame of this pulse induction metal detector is its ability to ignore minerals in the environment while maintaining high sensitivity to all metal targets. The JW Fisher Pulse 12 is not affected by highly mineralized salt water, coral, high iron content rocks, or magnetic (black) sand, all of which cause erratic readings in conventional detectors. Also, the detection range is unaffected by the medium between the metal detector and the metal target. Performance does not change whether detecting through the air, water, silt, sand, or solid coral. See technical datasheet for actual detection distances.
The JW Fisher Pulse 12 system includes a 24 by 36-inch search coil with 150 feet of cable, tow fish, and a top-side control unit. The control unit features three sets of operator controls which allow up to three coils to be towed simultaneously. Both meter and audio readouts indicate target detection from each individual coil. Options include cable lengths up to 500 feet, UA-2 altimeter, USB data output interface, Tracker software, and DDW-1 deep dive wing. The USB data output allows the Pulse 12 readout data along with GPS position coordinates to be displayed and stored on a computer. The system is powered by two 12 volt batteries with a total power consumption of only 12 watts.
An optional Microsoft Surface® tablet can be mounted in the control box lid, eliminating the need for a separate laptop computer making it a “sleeker” package.
Optional Tracker 3 software shows the path of the boat as it moves over the search area along with a cascading waterfall of the Pulse 12 readouts and the GPS position associated with each readout. When a target is detected, the readouts and coordinates change color so the operator can quickly see when and where a target is detected. At the bottom left of the screen is a graphical representation of the last 1 minute to 1 hour of Pulse 12 readouts. When a target is detected the line swings up on the graph. In addition to the Pulse 12 and GPS data, other information displayed is the boat’s speed, compass heading, and alarm setting. Up to three fish can be displayed on the screen.
The Tracker map can be exported as an image with a KML file to allow it to be easily overlaid on other mapping programs (as shown above). All data can be stored on the PC hard drive or disk.
Commercial Grade Construction, ability to tow up to three coils for extra-large detection area, optional computer interface and software, faster-towing speeds than the Pulse 10 system, and a audio jack for headphones.
