SC 602 PI slide valve cap detector


  • Rapid fi nding of concealed slide valve
  • caps, manhole covers, manholes and
  • metal markers
  • Detects even small metal parts
  • Simple to use






The SC 602 PI is a robust and user-friendly metal detector with high detection sensitivity used for general detection tasks. It is applied in the construction industry and in roadmaking as well as by public bodies such as municipal gas and water authorities. It detects all metals including small pieces of non-ferrous metals. The SC 602 PI facilitates the fi nding of slide valve caps and manhole covers covered by asphalt, slide rods, metal pipes laid near the surface and marking nails. When switched on, the device adjust itself automatically to the ambient conditions. The effect of highly magnetic layers of asphalt and earth magnetism can also be suppressed by the electronic compensation system within certain limits. In addition disruptive effects caused by conductivity, moist soil or saltwater can be suppressed to a large extent.

Mode of operation

The SC 602 PI operates on the Ebinger microprocessor controlled pulse-induction process (PI). Weak magnetic pulses generate eddy currents in the objects to be detected; these retroact on the sensor by a magnetic echo. This in turn is converted electronically into an audio signal. The digital PI system permits the detector to be used both near to and in saltwater. As a result of the static detection mode, deductions can be made on the size and depth of the metallic items detected when users have some experience.

Constructional features

The robust SC 602 PI metal detector consists of a watertight search head connected with a hinged joint to the tubular handle in yellow signal colour. The top of the handle contains the electronics, signal transmitter, ON/OFF switch and battery compartment. At the hinged joint there is a lockable slider to optimise the sensitivity setting for diffi cult search operations. The detector is powered by a commercially available 9 V E-block. Low Battery voltage is indicated by an audio alarm. Metal objects are indicated by a pulsating audio signal. Through the static search mode a continuous audio signal is given when the search head is above a metal object.
