C.Scope® Metal Detector


The C.Scope® Metal Cover Locator is a high performance metal detector developed using the latest in advanced digital signal processing technology. They are the most modern design of locator available and can determine the exact location and shape of buried covers. The CScope Metal Cover Locator has been designed specifically for the exacting requirements of the water industry and ground working contractor

This detector is a low cost solution to the problem of finding lost or hidden metal objects in the ground. Typical targets will be manhole covers and stopcock boxes covered by tarmac or earth, steel reinforcement rods in concrete road surfaces, metal pipes, valve heads and buried fuel tanks

The CScope designed Induction Balance operating system provides maximum sensitivity to solid metal objects whilst ignoring the small metal clutter which causes false signals in cheap inferior metal detectors. A ‘target hold’ facility enables the operator to trace out the shape and size of the located object – less time wasted uncovering the wrong target!

The CS880 has been carefully thought out in every detail. It is vital equipment for the Water Company Inspector, Engineer and Ground Work Operative. Every feature of the CS880 has been devised in close consultation with industry specialists.
