The ICON DATA metal detector data logger purpose is to create images of targets in 2D and 3D viewing ability. ICON DATA metal detector data logger can be used with any metal detector that operates in “non motion” audio mode. ( A true non motion metal detector does not need movement of the coil to generate audio signal. Also, the audio signal will not fade out, but rather get stronger as it gets closer to the target, and will continue to sound as long as the coil remains over the target. For details about “motion” & “non motion” metal detector audio modes check our youtube video “compatible metal detectors for Icon Data logger” https://youtu.be/S8pxkF8tiHU ). Some examples of traditional type non motion metal detectors are all the frame coil Pulse Induction detectors such as Lorenz Deepmax, Deepmax X3, Deepmax X5, Deepmax X6, Deepmax Z1, LPX2, Deeptech Ground Pioneer 4500, Stinger, Pulse star II Pro, Superscan, Delta Pulse and others… JW Fishers Pulse 6x or Pulse 8x, Aquapulse AQ1B, XP Deus, White’s XLT. 2-Box style metal detectors such as Whites TM-808, Gemini III. Also older / newer VCO audio style detectors. Now with ICON DATA logger unit these types of detectors can be updated with real time 3D target imaging.
The ICON DATA metal detector logger is more than just a data logger, it is a real time imaging and on-site target analysis device. All other available metal detector data loggers currently on the market are either too bulky or too expensive or both. Also, they do not display the images in real time on the screen as you are operating your detector in the field. One has to scan the field first, and then connect the data logger to a PC to see the results.
The ICON DATA Logger displays the detected target image immediately while the user operates the metal detector in the field. No complex controls to fumble around with, no stopping to download, and no time wasted.The ICON DATA unit processes hundreds metal detector signals every second, and displays the image using the supplied software on your windows laptop or a tablet PC which can also be ordered preconfigured with the ICON DATA logger software.
The ICON DATA metal detector logger is so sensitive, that it can visualize anomalies like ground voids, tombs, previously dug ground and buried foundations. All these types of voids and structures interfere with the tuning sound of the metal detector and create weak noise signals that are ignored by the detector speaker and the human ear.
The ICON DATA logger amplifies these signals. Then it is the user decision to select if he wishes to see the metal targets only – or the ground anomalies also (ground voids, tombs, previously dug ground and buried foundations).
The user has full control of the scan with many available options. The user can set the grid size of the area (steps & sweep lines), the graphic mode, the coloring, target depth calculation, graph edit, save or export the image in various formats.
After set-up ICON DATA software guides the user with voice commands to start, step and turn, can be paused or start again anytime. It even has a replay mode to replay the actual scan that had just taken place. The data collection mode can be set to automatic for flat ground surface when a constant and steady pace can be kept or set to manual for uneven surfaces and areas with trees, bushes, rocks, etc.
