The CEIA CMD/DW is a very high performance, high sensitivity amphibious metal detector certified to detect metal and minimum-metal content targets from ground to fresh or salt water bodies down to 100 m depth.


CEIA CMD/DW - detail

The detector is manufactured in compliance with the ISO-9001 standard and has been designed to satisfy the most stringent operational detection requirements.

One-piece foldable design

The Metal Detector consists of a search head, a control unit, a telescopic pole and an elbow support jointed together in a one-piece design. The detection head is light and the wiring is designed to be protected from any possible damage.

The one-piece foldable design allows the CEIA CMD/DW Metal Detector to be deployed in a very short period and to be easily transported.

The detector is equipped with a built-in Ni-MH battery charger which allows the batteries to be recharged (3 hours. max) without the need to extract them. This also allows full environmental protection of the power source and minimum preparation time for the user.

Exclusive automatic soil compensation system

The CEIA CMD/DW does not require any manual calibration; in addition, optimum sensitivity is ensured over all types of terrain due to CEIA’s Exclusive Automatic Soil Compensation System.

Localization of metal objects is optimized by an Acoustic Modulation pinpointing system aided by a Visual LED bar graph, which allows the position of the detected mass to be identified accurately.

If desired, the led bar can be masked with a snap-down cover so as to avoid remote visibility (stealth operation).

Ergonomic operation

Intentionally designed to be used easily and comfortably in all working conditions, the CEIA CMD/DW can be operational in less than twenty seconds.

The Metal Detector offers the best combination of functional and operational characteristics. More specifically, it provides the highest ratio between overall dimensions, detection depth and operational weight.

The length of the telescopic pole can be adjusted for operation in upright, kneeling, prone and swimming positions.

Modern control unit

The watertight control unit withstands the most stringent environmental requirements and Standards. All controls are within easy reach of the operator:
  • Volume adjustment
  • Sensitivity adjustment
  • Built-in speaker
  • Main switch and spring actuated reset switch
