OKM's 3D ground scanners and PI metal detectors allow operating temperatures down to -20°C (-4°F). Even snowfall, fresh snow and slush don't have any influence on the measurements.
In contrast: When using metal detectors with VLF technology (without multifrequency), de-icing salt from the roads that washes into the field can cause interference signals.
GPR has two different meanings: On the one hand, it describes the Geophysical Phase Reader technology, on which our ground scanners are based. On the other hand it is a common abbreviation for Ground Penetrating Radar. This technology is used by our Gepard GPR 3D.
