It's the choice of the Pro's! The Pulse 8X is in use by military, law enforcement, commercial, and salvage divers worldwide. This model includes a waterproof search coil connector which allows the detector to use other size search coils. Heavy duty construction and high sensitivity make this detector ideal for commercial applications and the preferred detector of professional treasure hunters.

Everything You Need To Get Started!

The Pulse 8X comes with a complete accessory package that includes all the pieces necessary for land and underwater detecting. Included with the detector is a corrosion proof PVC underwater handle and an aluminum land handle, underwater earphone, AC and DC battery chargers, and a hip mount kit. The 8X package also includes a carry bag and land headphones.

See and Hear Your Treasures

The 8X has both visual and audio target indicators. When a metal object is detected the audio alarm sounds and a meter shows the strength of the signal. The meter is beneficial in determining the size and burial depth of the target, information not easily conveyed by the blinking LED indicators or the audio-only readout of some other detectors. The audio alarm is loud enough for a diver to easily hear without having the earphone directly over the ear. Rechargeable batteries power the detectors 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. The JW Fishers Pulse 8X metal detector comes with all the accessories needed to use the detector on land or dive to depths of over 200 feet.

Buoyancy Designed with the Diver in Mind

The detector’s buoyancy is slightly negative in the water. This allows the diver to sit the detector on the bottom to dig a target without having it float away, which is a problem with “positive buoyancy” detectors. The underwater housing is a single solid casting with ¼” wall thickness and molded-in brass inserts. A ½’ thick acrylic faceplate is fastened down with six stainless steel screws giving a maximum depth rating in excess of 200 feet. The standard 7.5 inch coil has good sensitivity to both small and large targets, and makes target pinpointing a breeze. Other size coils are available for more specialized applications. It is necessary to have the underwater connector option to interchange coils.

Discover the Pulse 8X

The top of the line Pulse 8X is the most sensitive pulse detector you can buy, and continues to be the choice of commercial and professional divers worldwide. The 8X is in use by US and foreign Navies, Coast Guards, FBI, Secret Service, numerous federal and law enforcement agencies, and professional treasure hunters everywhere. The 6X has the same heavy duty construction as the 8X but is not as powerful. However, the 6X can be upgraded to the 8X at any time.

How deep into the ground can this unit detect object/gold?

Will this work under salt water and on land?
Question by: Virgil Allmond on Nov 22, 2018, 9:01 AM Link
It will operate outside of water, but you will likely have better options for land-based detecting. This model is really specialized for underwater search and recovery.
