The new GPA 3000 DR is the first GPA ground scanner designed for search from the air.
The development of the new GPA 3000 DR has resulted in the construction of new, lightweight components for drone flight, and our development engineers have developed the new DR electronic unit with radio station. The connectable components weigh only 1520 gram and consist of the GPA 3000 DR electronics unit including radio station (weight 620 g), the new GPA 3000 DR Super Sensor (550 g), external Li-Ion battery (250 g) and the external radio station (100 g).
We recommend drones with a payload of more than 2 kg. To reduce interference during the course of the measurement, the drone should keep its height preferably. As a compatible drone, we recommend e. g. the model DJI Matrice 600 Pro.
The GPA 3000 DR radio station makes it possible to transmit measurement data up to a distance of 300 m without interference. Without radio station, i. e. only with Bluetooth data transmission, however, data can only be transmitted up to 30 m. Due to the higher range, large area can be scanned in a very short time by drone.
The new, lightweight DR super-probe can easily be carried by the drone and has a maximum search performance of up to 25 meters.
The new GPA 3000 DR offers the following advantages:
- GPA 3000 DR electronics unit with touch display and built-in radio station
- Wireless data transmission via Bluetooth® with extra radio station for the drone.
- New lightweight GPA DR super probe, doubly dismountable.
- Easy switching to other depths without changing probes
- Latest "GPA Visualizer" Software (Android)
- Additional universal probe for use without drone, incl. Tablet holder
The GPA 3000 DR measures soil changes and detects metals at high depths. In addition, finds in caves and chambers are tracked due to cavity location. Both treasure hunters, various mining companies and mine operators, but also authorities and archaeologists use our GPA systems worldwide. Unlike conventional metal detectors, GPA technology has the crucial advantage of measuring changes in soil balance. The measured data is automatically digitized and transmitted wirelessly.
The new GPA 3000 DR electronics unit is light and sturdy and can by easily connected to your own drone.
The electronics unit is equipped with an active touch screen, which is suitable for easy language and search depth selection.
The GPA 3000 DR is easy to use and can be used without special technical knowledge. The microprocessor performs automatic calibration on each soil without the need for further adjustments. The GPA 3000 DR Set can therefore be used worldwide on every type of soil.
Power is supplied by a powerful Li-ion battery, which is attached externally to the electronics unit.
GPA 3000 DR probes
The set includes the GPA 60cm Universal Probe and the new GPA 3000 DR 100 cm Super Probe. The probes feature highly sensitive sensors and automatic calibration to measure even the smallest soil changes.
The GPA 3000 DR is also supplied with the 60 cm (24 ") XS universal probe, which is attached to the telescopic bar for the use without drone.
The new super-probe is 100 cm long and has a weight of only 550g. The DR super probe is doubly dismountable and can be easily transported. During the search with the super probe, the electronics unit is attached to the upper end with a set screw.
The super probe has four search performances, that you can easily select on the touch screen. The max. search performance is up to 25 m.
GPA 3000 DR Software
In addition to the "KTS GPA 3D" software, the GPA 3000 DR now also has the new "KTS GPA Visualizer" software.
The latest program from KTS Electronic is very easy to use. Start the search by pressing the "Start" button. The search can be interrupted and resumed at any time. Measurement results can be saved in 2D and 3D graphics for later analysis.
Rechargeable battery pack
The set includes an external battery pack with an operating time of 4-8 hours. The battery pack is simply attached to the back of the electronics housing with a Velcro fastener and connected to the electronics unit (power) with a connecting cable.
The separate car charger for the cigarette lighter is also included, as well as an additional 110 volt adapter.
Rechargeable Li-ion battery pack :
- Volts of direct current: 14,4 Vdc
- Charge voltage: 16,8 V
- Max. charge current: 3 A
