With the XL16 IMAGER, there is no need to transmit a signal into the earth, because of the existing signals that are already present in the earth. The XL16 IMAGER has very sensitive broadband receivers, enabling it to receive electromagnetic and magnetic signals. When
there is an item buried in the ground, a FERF (Free Electron Radiation Field) is created enabling the receiving antennas in the XL16 IMAGER to identify its presence. When a hole is dug, it creates a scar on the Earth’s surface; this scar is visible to the XL16 IMAGER.
Unlike any other detector ever built, it is looking for the difference, which enables the operator to locate anomalies.
The software that was created exclusively for the USA systems and is designed to highlight items in the ground, anomalies, disturbances, etc… You can see subsurface objects in Real-Time with the GeoSurveyor 3-D Software. Also a feature that assists in detecting a target
area is Auto Ground Balancing. Auto Ground Balancing defines the compensation for the varying amount of minerals in the soil by sensing the mineralization and automatically adjusting the ground balance to achieve the best performance, thus producing a more “clearly defined target area”. One of the main items to note is to do a large enough scan allowing you to see the background. When scanning in only one small area, determining the difference between the target and the background can be somewhat difficult. Another note to remember is to isolate suspected targets so that there is only one target per scan. This way you will be able to determine the approximate size of the object. As advancements in the software are available you may purchase upgrades, critical updates will be available free of charge. Please contact your sales representative for more information.
