Ask a question about this product

How deep can go this machine? And it’s can give the proximity depth for the target or not
Question by: Ghani on Mar 18, 2018, 11:56 AM Link
Out of the box, this detector system can detect down approx. 6 meters. It does have a depth indicator. If you would like a bit more depth, the largest coil allows for searching down to approx. 8 meters on larger targets!
This is the largest coil available:

How does this kind of machine (PI, with very large coil) perform with surface trash such pull tabs and foil and debris?
Question by: John on Apr 6, 2018, 12:43 PM Link
When using the SSP with the larger coil, the detector is most sensitive to large targets, buried very deep. In general, deep seeking detectors will ignore smaller targets close to the surface. A PI detector with a smaller coil would be ideal for smaller targets near the surface, but as with all PI's, there isn't much, if any, discrimination, so you'll be digging all targets.

How would this detector react to hot rocks, or in an mineralized area?
Question by: Hi on Aug 13, 2019, 6:35 AM Link
This system uses Pulse Induction technology, so it will be more stable than other options around hot rocks and highly mineralized ground conditions.
Answer by: on Aug 14, 2019, 9:29 AM
Is this product works on lode gold or vain of gold? Depth of 8to 10 meters??
Question by: Pedro mendiola on Sep 19, 2018, 10:00 PM Link
With the largest coil available for the SSP, this system can reach depths of 12 meters. It sounds like this should work well for your application.
Answer by: on Sep 24, 2018, 11:16 AM
How to program the detector to gold silver only without reducing its ability to detect ?
And if you have a video it would be better

Detech ss p 5 100
Question by: Mahmoud on May 1, 2018, 9:06 AM Link
The SSP 5100 has the ability to distinguish between ferrous and non-ferrous targets only; it is not capable of discriminating JUST gold or silver. There is a video at the bottom of the product page showing the detecting system in use.
Answer by: on May 1, 2018, 10:53 AM
How small of a target can be detected at 8 meters down?
Question by: david marier on Feb 22, 2018, 4:41 PM Link
It would have to be something the size of a small treasure chest or larger.
