It is now 20 years ago that the first metal detector from the Future Series has been created by Mr. Andreas Krauß, one of today's owners of OKM. After many years of development and improvement we are happy to announce the new metal detector Future 2018.
This special Anniversary Edition has been primarily designed for treasure hunters who like to enter the awesome field of 3d metal detection for a reasonable price. With only one scanning probe, that contains all necessary electronics and the battery, you can survey many different kind of terrains. You may use the Future 2018 in vertical or horizontal position by simply turning it around and selecting the proper operating mode:
The redesigned 'New Edition' of Rover C II includes the following special features:
Like other OKM detectors the Future 2018 utilizes OKM's approved and reliable sensor technology to obtain measurement data. All scan values are transferred wireless to a connected Tablet PC or computer running our Visualizer 3D software.
The Future 2018 metal detector is fully controlled via Tablet PC using OKM's Visualizer 3D software. After the wireless data connection has been established you select an operating mode (Live Sound or Ground Scan), select the orientation of the scanning probe and start surveying the area of interest.
You can use Future 2018 ground scanner to detect many different kind of buried items:
While conducting your measurement the scan data immediately appears on your Tablet screen. So you won't miss any target that lies under the surface. Wireless Bluetooth headphones receive acoustical information about your scan or target.
Even if you never used a 3d ground scanner or metal detector before, the Future 2018 is easy to handle. Additionally our support and sales team is ready to assist you in operating your detector. We also offer training courses in our company in Altenburg, Germany as well as in our subsidiary OKM Emirates FZE in the United Arab Emirates.
