    Discovering the unknown - treasure detecting

    Published on 7 December 2014, Sunday, 12:22 PM

    The excitement and anticipation of a rare or valuable discovery is why metal detecting is one of the most intriguing activities enjoyed by many people around the country every weekend.

    Kennards Hire Test & Measure now has Minelab CTX 3030 treasure detectors available for the professional prospector, amateur archaeologist or weekend hobbyist.

    The CTX 3030 is a high performance treasure detector and allows you to distinguish trash from treasure and find objects as small as a staple, great for coin, jewellery and relic hunters. The unit features a full colour LCD that clearly displays target information and can be used to identify different metal types in a variety of mineralised ground conditions, including extremely salty soils, sea water and wet beach sand.

    With Minelab’s exclusive integrated GPS, you can navigate to your favourite locations and record your finds and transfer your detecting information onto Google Maps using the XChange 2 PC application. This function shows where you’re going and where you have been. GeoTrails show the ground you have already covered, WayPoints mark points of interest, FindPoints mark your treasure locations and GeoHunts record your entire detecting adventure.

    The CTX 3030 is very easy to use and can be operated with or without the use of headphones. The light weight, ergonomic sleek and sturdy, waterproof design has all the battery weight behind the armrest for comfortable detecting.

    Quick and easy to navigate menus give you easy access to ‘on the go’ adjustments to allow fast changes to your most used controls while detecting. Five preset Search Modes and a number of automatic functions make it easy for the novice treasure hunter to get started. More advanced features are accessible at the touch of a button for the experienced prospector.

    With the unrivalled performance of the CTX 3030 from Kennards Hire Test & Measure you’ll discover a whole new world.
