What is a pulse induction metal detector?

What is a pulse induction metal detector?

Metal detectors are categorized into four groups based on their operating principles, beat-frequency, oscillation, and resonant frequency oscillation.

These are the two early techniques used in metal detectors.

Detectors based on these principles are not preferred due to frequency stability issues. Induction balance (IB) and pulse induction (PI) detectors are more widely used.

Pulse Induction (PI) is a type of metal detecting technology. A pulse induction metal detector operates by sending short pulses of voltage to the metal detector coil. These short pulses cause a magnetic field to be generated, which quickly dissipates at each pulse’s end.

Any metal targets that induce the magnetic field remain magnetized for a short time after the end of a pulse. The detector’s coil then detects the target’s decaying magnetism.

A pulse induction metal detector can deal more effectively with much more complex, variable ground conditions; this is the reason a pulse induction metal detector works so well for gold detecting, and pulse induction machines are excellent for working the beach and searching for gold nuggets.

Detector Online Training

With your new detector, you will receive a Quick Start Guide, a valuable resource designed to guide you through the essential steps of operating your new device seamlessly. This user-friendly guide is tailored to ensure that even beginners can quickly grasp the fundamental functions and features.

For those seeking a more profound understanding, a comprehensive manual accompanies your purchase. This detailed manual delves into the intricacies of your detector, providing a wealth of information for users eager to explore advanced settings and capabilities.

However, the pinnacle of expertise in harnessing your detector's full potential lies in professional training. While guides and manuals offer a solid foundation, professional training takes your knowledge to the next level. Through hands-on instruction and insights from seasoned experts, you'll gain a deeper understanding of your detector's nuances and unlock its optimal performance.

During the individual training, our detector Expert addresses your wishes and questions, provides you tips and tricks and helps you to improve your chances of success with your detector.

  • Theoretical introduction
  • Overview of the functionality and operating modes of your detector
  • Using the detector on the test field
  • Tips and tricks for advanced users
  • Improving your measurement procedure
  • Evaluation of the scans on the detector display
  • Answers to your questions

In addition to a general introduction to the functionality and operating modes of your detector, the detector Expert explains how to use the detector efficiently in the field. In doing so, he can correct small errors during the measurement and advise you on special features of your search projects.

You will learn how to check your measurements and further improve your scanning technique independently. You can also draw initial conclusions about potential target objects in the underground.

  • Service & Support: for entry-level, experienced and professional detectorists
  • Schedule: After you add the paid training, we will contact you to schedule your training with our expert.

Trainings are charged per hour! Additional costs may apply for training sessions. For special requests please contact us at
