The idea of diving in warm tropical waters whilst at the same time searching for long lost treasure appeals to both the adventurer and the magpie in me, the PulseDive 2-in-1 set from Nokta Makro comes with everything you need to get you started, both a Scuba Detector and Pointer Detector.
Suitable for professional divers, vacationers and detectorists alike, with an innovative design that allows for a quick transformation of the device from a Scuba Detector into a Pinpointer and vice versa in a matter of seconds.
The PulseDive has an IP68 rating, making it waterproof up to 60m (200ft.), it comes with a replaceable Scuba Coil and cover, a replaceable Pointer Coil and hard shell case, a belt holster, security lanyard, rubber wristband, battery compartment cover for land use, coil connector dust protection cap, USB charging cable, user manual and hard-shell carrying case.
The PulseDive uses powerful technology that aims to provide a stable operation in saltwater or in any type of soil, the Scuba Detector can be transformed into a Pinpointer in seconds. The built-in wireless module makes this detector compatible with Nokta Makro 2.4 GHz Green Edition Wireless Headphones and offers a variety of detection alerts. Choose from audio only, vibration only or both audio and vibration indication at the same time, the LED indicator can also be used in addition to any of the above.
There is an LED torch to make it easier to search out targets at night or when hunting underwater, the Rapid Retune function ensures stable operation of the device with the push of one button whilst the Dive Mode provides easier operation underwater by locking the keys and preventing them being pressed by water pressure while deep diving. The Lost Alarm will be activated after five minutes of inactivity, an audible alarm and a LED starts flashing to make sure you can find the PulseDive easily.
The PulseDive is a versatile detector with two useful tools in one, some reports suggest it can struggle with small chains even on the highest sensitivity setting, the locating area was rather small but they adressed this with their new 8″ coil.
The replaceable pointer coil comes with a hard-shell protection case to prevent wear of the detection tip, it is available in two colours, Black or Yellow, with five adjustable levels of sensitivity. The Scuba Detector measures up at 39cm and the Pinpointer is 28cm long, the Scuba Detector weighs 419g including the coil cover and the Pinpointer 286g including the hard-shell case and the 1650mAh Lithium Polymer battery charges up in two hours.
