Teknetics Omega 8000

The Omega 8000 from Teknetics provides an advanced feature set for the enthusiast looking for an accurate and reliable metal detector. A large LCD readout provides loads of valuable information allowing you to discern valuable targets much easier than before. A simple touch pad and dial control interface gives you access to the deep and highly adjustable settings options.

Ground mineralization can be quickly calibrated through the Ground Grab mode. Optimizing the machine to specific ground mineral levels is essential in picking up responses from desirable pieces that are even deeper in the ground. Manual adjustments can also be made to suit your exact needs. This is also made simpler and more accurate through the ground mineral level bar graph with its 4-segment meter. A ground error meter on another portion of the display shows when ground balance settings need to be adjusted.

Target identification is easily done through the digital notch scale and 2-digit numerical Target ID readout. Sensitivity is easily controlled by one of the two main dials, while the other dial controls discrimination thresholds. There are 4 audio tones which are accessed through several mode settings.

The Omega 8000 comes with a 10 inch concentric search coil and operates at 7.8 kHz. In certain situations, EMI can be reduced by switching to the 1st or 2nd alternate frequency.
