About detector ergonomics

In addition to high detection range, ground compensation and iron filtering quality and ergonomics of a detector are further important features. For professional, long lasting surveys detectors have to offer good ergonomics, to be user friendly and to prove their robustness.

The scuff proof aluminium carrying and extension rods have a swivel joint to the search head. Our quality awareness does not allow for wear and tear fractures, which can be found at conventional market products.

The detectors are of an integrated design neglecting external connection cables which could easily entangle at shrubs, branches or underwater at shelves and cliffs!

The electronic boxes and controls of detectors for land use are waterproof. The underwater detectors are pressure tested up to 7 bar!

Durable und rugged design

The SECON detectors stand out because of their excellent material, ease of use and ergonomic design. All detectors are well balanced.

This guarantees a maintenance free long-term detection experience.
