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

One piece retractable design

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 CMD/DW Metal Detector to be operational in a very short time and to be carried easily everywhere.

The detector is equipped with a built-in Ni-MH battery charger which allows the batteries to be recharged (in 3 hour max) without the need to extract them from the unit.

This also allows full environmental protection of components and maximum operational speed for the user.

Ergonomic operation

Intentionally designed to be used easily and comfortably in every working condition, the CMD/DW can be set up for operation in less than twenty seconds.

The Metal Detector offers the best combination of functional and operational characteristics: 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 or prone positions.

The special shape of the CMD/DW search head gets simultaneously the fastest advance rate and inspection capability of narrow spaces.

Exclusive automatic soil compensation system

The 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.
