Hand-held Gem-2 Ski

The GEM-2 Ski is our best-selling product. Its portability and flexibility make it the go-to multi-tool of the industry.

Because it is comfortable to carry and has a field-swappable battery, extended surveys are no problem. Its powerful transmitter and wide coil separation allow scanning to depths up to 10 meters, depending on soil conditions.  Depending on the model, it can use up to 10 simultaneous frequencies from 30 Hz to 93 kHz.

Frequency programmability allows you to tailor detection to your intended targets and environmental conditions. The frequencies can also be programmed to mimic the configuration of other fixed-frequency instruments, possibly replacing several instruments with one GEM-2 ski.

The GEM-2 package consists of the sensor boom (ski), the electronics console, a dedicated data logger (Socket 655 standard), a battery charger, a shoulder strap and a carrying case. It also includes a calibration ferrite and CDROM containing the manual and the operating software. The data collection computer is preconfigured and tested for immediate use.

RS-232 input for real time GPS navigation
User Interface and data Logger: Socket 655 (upgradable to Trimble Recon)
Communication: Bluetooth with the PDA and Computer or RS232

The GEM 2 is suitable for investigations in:
  • Shallow geology
  • Groundwater
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Soil Science
  • Archaeology
  • Environmental Contaminations
  • Underground facilities
  • Continuous EMI Spectrum
