Type Of Detector
Professional Metal detectors / Exp 5000

The metal detector eXp 5000 is a measuring instrument of newest technology and has been developed in particular for professional use. Through the supplied video eyeglasses buried objects like boxes, pipes, metals but also cavities and grave chambers under the surface becomes visible immediately. Furthermore the video eyeglasses are optimised for the search during the night and also protects against perturbing sunlight at day.

General description

Compact equipment and easy handling

The Earth Imager eXp 5000 includes an easily removable control unit which makes it easier to use in different areas. With its compact equipment the device is also easy to handle in terrains which are difficult to access.

Compact equipment and easy handling

Fast processing of measured data

The device allows measurements in brilliant resolutions. All recorded data is processed immediately through the integrated pc-module and becomes visible through the video eyeglasses. The size of any measurement is almost indefinite and only limited by the storage capacity of 256 MB. All collected measured data can be transferred afterwards to a personal computer to analyse the results professionally in the software program Visualizer 3D. Besides the measuring values additional information like

  • Date and time,
  • Used antenna,
  • GPS coordinates (if GPS has been activated) and
  • Current measurement settings

will be stored in every graphical representation automatically. Date and time settings can be adapted individually to the actual time zone.

Individual operating modes

Individual operating modes

The geophysical instrument and metal detector eXp 5000 supports different operating modes which can be used for specific underground investigations. According to your personal requirements one of the following operating modes comes into operation:

  • Magnetometer ( detect ferromagnetic metals )
  • Ground Scan ( create colored representations of the underground in 3D )
  • Discrimination ( metal discrimination : precious metals / base metals )
  • Metal Detector ( metal discrimination : gold, silver, iron and aluminium )
  • Live Scan ( live display of the underground )
  • Thermograph ( measure differences in temperature )
  • Thermo Scan ( create infrared images in 3D )

GPS receiver for navigation

The integrated GPS receiver refers every recorded measurement to its appropriate measured area. If you do not know exactly where a measurement was performed, the metal detector eXp 5000 is able to navigate you to the corresponding place.

Ancient artifacts detected with eXp 5000 ground scanner

Ancient artifacts

Those antique objects have been found by a treasure hunter in Lebanon with the OKM ground scanner eXp 5000. This historical find contained different miniature statues of a size of 15 – 25 cm, as well as several coins and rings with inscription. These artifacts are probably from the 17th or 18th century. At this time the today's Lebanon still belonged to the former Ottoman Empire. Elaborations are not known.

eXp 5000

In 2010 the eXp 5000 again shows its agility for being a truly professional detector. During a customer training in Sulaymania, Iraq, a mummified cat was found

This discovery was found at a depth of about 1.5 m. In addition to the mummified animal a few coins were discovered.

World War II medal found in Tunisia

World War II medal found in Tunisia

This medal has been detected by the 3d metal detector eXp 5000 in North Africa. It is obviously a German/Italian locket. The inscription says: "Campagna Italo-Tedesca in Africa. Italienisch-Deutscher Feldzug in Afrika." This metal detector find reminds of the Italian German campaign in Africa in 1937/1942. Mussolini's National Fascist Party created this Italian/German African campaign medal in memory of the actions of the German Africa Corps DAK (Deutsche Afrika Korps) in the North African campaign.

Some successful treasure hunters wrote an email with the following content: "Our team found some treasures. We found some bronze objects in an old tomb. The finds are from about 1700 years ago. I attached one of it with this email. It is a bowie knife. [...] I have a basic package of eXp 5000".

Earth Imager eXp 5000 detects 12 gold coins

eXp 5000 detects 12 gold coins

During a metal detection on loamy ground a satisfied customer from middle east discovered gold coins inside of a stone. He was using the Earth Imager eXp 5000 with Super Sensor and VLF emitter. In one of his emails he wrote: "Again i scaned the measured area and in 320 cm i found 12 gold coins inside of stone."
