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.
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.
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.
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.
|Leasable with Katapult||Yes|
|Approximate Weight |
The approximate weight of the detector when fully assembled.
|Audio Identification |
Circuitry producing different audio tones for each target’s conductivity range, i.e., low tone for nickel, high tone for coins.
|Yes (Headphones Included)|
|Battery Requirements |
The type and amount of batteries used to operate the detector.
|Rechargeable Battery Pack|
The company that produces the detector.
|Search Coil Size |
The size and dimensions of the search coil
|7.5" Search Coil|
The country where the detector is made
|Headphone Jack Size |
The size of the headphone jack
|Includes Bonus Items |
Bonus items are shown pictured with the device on the product page are included with this product
|Operating Mode |
Operating modes would include, but are not limited to, discriminate mode and all-metal mode
|Operating Frequency |
The frequency at which the detector operates.
|Circuitry Type |
The type of circuitry the detector uses. Typically, you will see VLF (Very Low Frequency) detectors, and PI (Pulse Induction) detectors.
|Search Coil Shape||Round|
|Vibrating Alert |
A vibration feature that allows users to feel targets being detected.
|Visual Identification |
A visual target ID that allows the user to determine the composition of the target being detected before digging. Typically, a visual target ID is a numerical display based off the conductivity of the target being detected.
The amount of time the manufacturer will cover any broken parts or malfunctioning electronics.
|Water Resistance |
The degree to which the detector is resistant to water. Weatherproof implies that the detector is resistant to splashing and rain. Waterproof implies the detector is fully submerisble. (All models will offer waterproof search coils.)
