GradiMag — is a modern, high precision two-channel Overhauser total-field magnetometer / gradiometer. Its innovative design allows to deploy the system as a rover magnetometer, walking gradiometer or base station. As being equipped with an external GLONASS/GPS receiver, Gradiometer is perfect for archaeology surveys and geotechnical studies when target objects are located close to the surface with significant total field gradient values. Moreover, for gradient survey data analysis there is no need to remove the effects of daily magnetic drifts (diurnals). Thus, the using of base station data may not be necessary.

Due to the outstanding sensor stability GradiMag provides extremely high resolution. Beeper signalization makes the system very convenient for the purposes of utility detection in real-time. Each particular GradiMag has its own Certificate issued by authorized organization based on the testing in the certified magnetic induction measure.

Distinctive features of the new generation of GradiMag magnetometers:
  • New rugged and waterproof design of the console and sensor cases
  • New ergonomic backpack harness for even more comfortable usage
  • New rugged container for shipping / storage
  • Cables of new design with reinforced connectors 
GradiMag provides:
  • Automatic change of line and station numbers as well as their coordinate gridding
  • Precise measurements with 2 s rate
  • Autonomous base or magnetic observatory station measurement modes
  • Test mode with RMS and medium value estimation (without data storage)
  • Data export to ASCII text file
GradiMag areas of application:
  • Mineral explorations
  • Archaeology
  • UXO detection
  • Environmental and geotechnical studies
  • Geological mapping
  • Oil and gas
  • Magnetic observatory measurements
