Impact metal detector from the Turkish company Nokta-Makro is a unique multi-purpose
and high-performance device in all-natural conditions and terrain.
Within two years of its issuance, IMPACT proved its capabilities and reliability through the
experiences of prospectors and through real success stories such as the discovery of coins,
statues and ancient monuments by searchers from different countries in the world.
The main important feature of the device is the Multi-Frequency technology,
which was introduced first through this device, which allows the use of one of
three available search frequencies and switching between them when searching
to suit the discovery of different targets in various ground conditions.
In addition, the device has many features and functions to facilitate the work of prospectors
and treasure hunters, for example 12 different search mode for custom detection applications,
the digital ID feature of the target and the ignorance of specific range of metals as well as the
cancellation of iron and special sound tones, plus the economic price.
Impact device is recommended for every new prospector or hobbyist and even a professional
one because it enables you to discover your buried metal objects easily and offers you the best
investment of your money, thanks to its low price, which is your gateway to the world of treasures discovery
Impact metal detector Features
– Multi-Frequency Technology
The principle of the work of this technology is that it is possible to use
one of the multiple frequencies separately for the search of buried metal objects,
here in the device includes three different search frequencies (5 – 14 – 20 kHz) ,
so prospector can switch between them according to his need and the aim of
search and nature of buried targets and their size and other factors.
This technology, the first of its kind (which was later implemented in Kruzer and Anfibio),
included the versatility of the device and its suitability for the various purposes of the prospectors,
as well as the saving money, where there is no need to buy three detectors for metals for each frequency.
Impact Metal Detector Uses
As mentioned above, Multi Frequency technology includes multiple uses of the device.
With other features such as different search modes – as will be explained later – and multiple sizes
of search coils, the Impact device can be used for a wide range of applications and tasks for metal detectors. including:
– Find coins made of different metals such as gold, silver or copper
– Detection of natural gold in the ground in the form of nuggets and scattered granules or large gold veins
– Search for buried golden objects (e.g. gold bracelets – gold coins – rings …)
– Discover the metal objects that fall from visitors in parks and public gardens.
– Search for small pieces of monuments in historical areas such as old battlefields for targets such as weapons – metal containers …
– Find unwanted iron objects for removal and make the search field suitable for searching for valuables only.
Impact Metal Detector Search Modes
Impact software program includes a wide range of different search modes.
Search mode is a set of different settings prepared in advance within different values
of sensitivity and ground balance and other values to fit a particular goal or the nature of the terrain and so on.
The device includes 12 different modes of multiple uses.
For example, some search modes suitable for detection at a deeper depth and some of them
are dedicated to search for very small metallic objects and some of them produce different tones for gold, precious metals, iron, etc.
The search modes in the Impact include the following:
1 – All metals search mode (GEN)
2 – All metals with discrimination (GEN (D))
3 – Multi-tone discrimination mode (DI99)
4 – Conductive ground mode (COG)
5 – Discrimination mode with two tones (DI2)
6 – Discrimination mode with three tones (DI3)
7 – Discrimination mode with four tones (DI4)
8 – Deep mode (DEEP)
9 – Coins mode with noise reduction (VLX1)
10 – Small relics mode (VLX2)
11 – Static search mode without movement of the coil (STA)
12 – Static search mode without movement of the coil with discrimination STA (D)
Refer to the user guide for more details on each search mode and its appropriate uses.
– Digital ID – Target ID
The digital target ID is a specific number displayed on the screen of the device.
This number reflects the nature of the target in terms of its type of metal
It gives the prospector an idea of the nature of the metal type of the buried object
and the target ID number ranges from 00 to 99, where the target ID is used to distinguish
a target type from another particular type. Note that these numbers are related to the search mode
used and other settings of the device, and several factors related to the soil and the goal.
– Ground Balance Settings
Ground balance is a calibration process performed by the device to ensure that the results are accurate,
the user of the device first and before any use must perform ground balance in the desired search area to get best results.
In Impact there are three different settings for the ground balance including:
1 – Manual Mode
In this case, the user manually balances the ground by moving the device and adjusting the values.
2 – Automatic Mode
In this option, the ground balance process is performed automatically by the device without user intervention
3 – Ground Tracking Mode
In this case, the process of balancing is done automatically by the device also, but the difference from the previous option
is that here the device tracks the continuous changes in the terrain of the ground continuously so that the value of
the ground balance varies depending on the nature of the ground, for example rocky, clay, stone, sand, etc.
Impact Metal Detector Filter a Specific Target ID Range
Here we mean by filtering that it is possible to limit the search within a given range
of Target ID values ignore a specific range.
This feature is very important for gold seekers, for example, where the device can be set
to search within the field of numbers related to gold only, thus the device ignoring the rest of the values,
which means that device does not make a sound even if it passed over a metal target,
except for gold of course where a sound alert to the prospector, in this case only.
The accepted range of digital ID values can be easily set within the device to suit the
objective of the search, the nature of the ground and several other factors.
– ISAT feature
iSAT (Intelligent Self-Adjusting Threshold) enables stable fixed use of the Impact metal detector
by eliminating or ignoring the faulty signals usually produced by searching within areas
with large mineralization and hot rock areas.
This option is ideal for use when using the all metal search mode or the different
discrimination modes described above.
– Tone Break
A useful feature for the user is the Tone Break feature which enables
the user to assign different audio tones to each specific range of digital target ID values.
The advantage of this feature is that a particular tone can be assigned to a field that corresponds
to the value of for example gold, when the user hears a specific tone,
the prospector can know the type of the target without looking at the screen.
Simple User Interface with Many Options
The device settings can be easily adjusted via the program of the device
and using the control panel buttons under the screen.
All the options and settings of the device are in one screen where you can choose
the search modes, search frequencies and other settings on the same screen using the buttons.
Here is a brief description of the program divisions (sections):
– Search Mode section
here there are 12 options and the desired search mode can be selected via the control panel buttons
– Expert Settings
section includes advanced search settings such as editing sound tones, selecting search frequencies, and so on.
– Settings section,
which enables setting different values and settings such as lighting, vibration, discrimination, ground balance and other options to save the settings
– Target ID section
A section in the middle displays the digital identifier for the Target ID and indicators showing the nature of the target, for example a precious metal (Non-Fe)
– A section at the top of the screen
with a scale of 0 – 99 showing a selection indicator that matches the numeric value of the target ID.
Impact metal detector software update feature
Impact features a unique feature where users can update their software
without having to buy a new device or review the manufacturer to upgrade
the device or add additional features such as new search modes, search frequencies or other settings
All new updates to the device software after the device have been released to the markets
are on the device’s page on the manufacturer’s website and instructions for downloading
them to the device via the cable supplied with the device.
