The Edge Detector is a high performance Pulse Induction metal detector that can be attached to almost any ROV, but is specifically designed for the VideoRay Pro 3 and Pro 4. Pulse induction technology allows it to detect both ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects on or beneath the ocean floor while ignoring minerals in the seabed. The remote metal detector locates and tracks underwater pipelines, finds missing tools and dredge parts, locates weapons and unexploded ordnance, and finds lost treasure.

The system utilizes a single coil encased in potting compound and attached to the underwater vehicle with a corrosion-proof Delrin frame. The frame provides a sturdy mount for the coil and positions it out in front of the ROV so as not to be affected by the ROV’s metal parts. The coil produces a detection envelope which extends up to 5 feet below the detector. The sleek, low profile coil design minimizes drag and weight on the ROV. The entire system slides into the Pro 3/Pro 4 manipulator clamping bracket, allowing extremely rapid deployment. The system has two LED’s that protrude out of the potting compound. The red LED has a constant blink rate that tells you the system is working properly, and the blue LED blinks with a varying rate when metal is detected. The system can be used on any ROV that has a 12-48v accessory port.
