pulseEKKO Pro Ultra Receiver
Sensors & Software pulseEKKO Pro Ultra Receiver

The new Ultra Receiver stacks up to 65,536 traces with little to no reduction in collection speed. In the past, random background noise limited the ability of older units to detect weak signal from greater depths. However, the Ultra Receiver increases the speed to stack more data traces in order to reach these greater depths. In fact, it can reach depths of up to double the penetration of older units. In addition, by reducing the noise floor, the GPR can see signals up to 100 times smaller.

SuperSting R8/IP

We have added two 84 electrode SuperSting R8/IP to our rental pool. These units can be used with configurations from 84 to 28 electrodes.
