Argus Gold-Detector GD 5005

The ARGUS GD5005P is a metal-detector with the latest Dual-Processor technology.
One processor takes over the measurement processing whilst the second one controls
the completely newly-developed Pulse Isolation Unit (PIU). This enables measurement
amplification for the first time, so that Gold can also be searched for and differentiated
at larger depths. The GD5005P uses the latest 5th generation Pulse Induction System
with digital measurement processing, graphic monitor and, thanks to PIU technology,
with the most accurate Gold indication, based on complex software.


The signal processing and system control is carried out using the most modern Dual-
Processor technology for fast and reliable measurement. The menu on the color-
touchscreen offers more comfort in using even for beginners. The software has been
especially written for the requirements of selective searching for gold.

A clear graphic display leads even the beginner, step-by-step, with optimal device
settings, to a successful search. A find is indicated both acoustically via loudspeaker or
headphones and shown in the graphic display. This enables conclusions to be drawn
immediately about the located metal. By switching to the time-line mode it is at last
possible to search larger areas quickly.

The GD5005P can be operated with various search-coils. They can be simply selected
in the appropriate menu. The maximum achievable penetration depth varies very much
with the type of coil used. (See Technical Details).

A high performance IGBT power amplifier ensures the optimal conformity of the coil with
the system. The pulse has a power of 910 Watt. This means that even larger coils
(2 x 1 metre) can be used,

With the GD5005P, a pulse induction system having measurement amplification with
digital signal processing has finally been realized for the first time. This is the foundation
for the 5th generation pulse induction system.

The penetration-depth depends on the diameter of the search-coil, the pulse
amplification, the soil characteristics, and the object size.

The working-depth of the dicriminator depends on the relationship between ferrous and
nonferrous parts (soil). A special alloy algorithm provides the most accurate metal
