📙 Overview of Magnetic Locating

Unlike metal detectors, which can detect a wide range of metal types, magnetic locators are specifically designed to detect the presence of ferrous metals.


Magnetometers work by detecting the ambient magnetic fields emanating from natural ferromagnetic minerals, such as Iron, austenitic stainless steels, cobalt and nickel.


These changes are then translated into audio and visual signals, which can guide the operator to the object's location.
