The GPA 3000 is a professional soil scanner, which is developed and produced by KTS-Electronic in Germany.
The latest 3D soil scanner GPA 3000
detects metals in depths, which are not reachable with the best metal detectors. Furthermore the GPA 3000 has the feature to detect also cavities. The cavity detection allows the localization of gold treasures in caves and chambers and detection of metals and archaeological findings. As well mining companies are using the best 3D metal detector system, but also treasure hunter, gold seeker, authorities and archaeologists.
GPA 3000 offers the following advantages:
1. Four various max. search performances (10 m, 15 m, 20 m and 25 m)
2. Simple switching to other sensors by keystroke, i.e. change of probes is not necessary!
3. Newly constructed 1 meter super probe, suitable for finding objects which are located in great depths
4. New “GPA Visualizer” 3D Software
5. Tablet mount
6. Wireless data transfer through Bluetooth
Due to the installation of micro electronic the GPA 3000 electronic is placed into a compact aluminum box. The electronic unit is equipped with an ON-/OFF-key and a push-button “search depth” which enables a switch to the various sensors and allows the immediate control of all relevant data such as sensor value, calibration, chosen search depth and battery control.
Mineral resources, treasures and cavities have an influence on the ground balance. In contrast to conventional metal detectors the GPA technology has the decisive advantage to measure changes in the ground. The measured data will automatically be digitized with the “GPA Visualizer” 3D software and is transferred wirelessly via Bluetooth to the tablet computer.
The GPA 3000 is user-friendly and can be operated without any particular technical skills. Without the necessity of further modulations the calibration is conducted by a microprocessor and will be carried out automatically on every soil. The GPA 3000 set therefore is applicable on every soil type.
The electric power supply (operating time approx. 6 to max. 12 hours) is guaranteed through a built-in 2800 mAh li-ion battery. The provided quick-charger will fully charge the battery within 2 hours. An external car charging cable for the connection to your car’s cigarette lighter (socket) belongs to the equipment as well as an additional 110 volt adapter.
GPA 3000 probes
The set contains the GPA 60 cm Universal probe and the new GPA 3000 1-meter Super probe.
The probes dispose of highly sensitive sensors and an automatic calibration to measure smallest ground variations.
The GPA 60 cm (24″) Universal probe is connected to the vertically adjustable carbon telescope bar.
The large Super probe measures approx. 1 meter (39″) in length with a weight of approx. 1,150 grams (2.2 lbs.).
While searching with the Super probe the electronic unit is attached to the top of the probe.
GPA 3000 Software
Among the KTS 3D software the GPA 3000 additionally is equipped with the new “GPA Visualizer” 3D software. This program can be operated with a few easy computer commands.
The search starts by pressing the start button and the choice of three various speeds. The search can be interrupted anytime through the stop button. A re-start is possible by touching the start button. The search can be completed when pressing the end button. Press on “3D” and the 2D picture is changed into 3D.
The GPA 3000 set contains the GOLD SCAN II gold detector, which also is newly developed. The device comes with a waterproof 25 cm (9.8″) searchcoil, the 1 x 1 m searchframe and the fitting charger. The gold detector GOLD SCAN II discriminates gold from other metals and indicates the scanned metal type on the display.
GOLD SCAN II is the follow-up model of the known GOLD SCAN metal detector and impresses gold seekers with its higher sensitivity towards gold and with a up to 30 % higher performance concerning small gold pieces, such as gold nuggets.
25 cm waterproof searchcoil (10″)
This waterproof coil (25cm) is applicable for the location of particularly small metals as well as large objects. There is no need for additional adjustments.
1 x 1 m search frame
The new 1 x 1 m search frame is contained only in the GPA 3000 set and is produced with an internal cable. Large areas are scanned quickly and effortlessly. The search frame is suitable for the deep scanning after medium-sized and big objects and with the aid of shoulder straps it can be carried from 1 to 2 persons. It is made of plastic pipes and is demountable into 4 pieces. The demounted frame is delivered in the attached bag and can be transported easily.
Cylindrical waterproof searchcoil
The waterproof cylindrical searchcoil is due to its dimensions of 5 x 20 cm especially appropriate for the search in wells, narrow cavities and under water.
