  • Main unit
  • Standard search head to meet most of measurement requirements to identify 40 mm dia. bar up to 95 mm depth (approx.), 8 mm dia. bar up to 70 mm depth (approx.), sensing area 120x60 mm.
  • PC cable
  • Battery pack and charger
  • Shoulder strap
  • Earphone
  • Carry case and instruction manual
Important note
Standard and optional search heads, can be supplied on order, complete with calibration certificate. See ordering information.
