After adjusting all of previous settings the user moves to scan screen and press “Start Scan” button to begin the search process.
The results screen will display a circular indicator, the direction arrow reflects the direction of antennas in degrees, on the right the inclination indicator that explained previously.

Ionic system uses a new developed technology incorporated into a new probe named Intelligent Multi Transceiver Unit or I.M.T.U.
The I.M.T.U technology is the first of its kind in metal detectors, and it constitutes a major development from the traditional ionic fields detection system found in previous Mega Detection devices or competing devices.

The new technology allows more accurate detection of ionic fields resulting from metallic targets buried under the ground thanks to I.M.T.U that ensures accurate receiving and processing of coming signals, with the ability to control some signal settings on the screen for more accurate results.


gold star 3d scanner


After selecting the ionic system, the device will start searching directly, here are the possible settings that can be adjusted by the user:

  • Sensitivity

During the search process and according to the target scanning, the ionic system
will generate variable audio tone, it represents the target ability or the distance between user and the target.
The user can change the value of signal sensitivity to analyze the output sound, its value range is between 0 and 100, the selected value shown on Sensitivity circular scale.


gold star 3d scanner


  • Gain

It is the signal gain or in other words signal strength, the user can control the signal strength using this setting, and it presented as percentage value (0-100) on circular scale like sensitivity.

Generally, it is recommended to reduce this value for detecting of large-size targets, and increase gain value for small-size targets detection.


gold star 3d scanner


In the middle of the screen there is a circular indicator, in the center of it there is a circle whose diameter and color change according to the received signal and the distance of the target from the location of the device, where it shrinks and expands with changing color to one of the following colors (red, blue or green) depending on the type of target.

Based on the received signal, the device also makes an audio tone with pitch and strength related to the position of the target and the nature of the signal.

Bionic system is similar to the Ionic system in terms of how it is work and use of Intelligent Multi Transceiver Unit (I.M.T.U) to perform the scan process.
But the difference is that here, ionic signals are captured from a particular metal object. for example, from golden ring or coin, and then the search is directed towards capturing ionic signals similar to metal objects buried underground within the surrounding area.


gold star 3d scanner

That mean in the ionic search system, the search is random and free, but in the bionic system the search is directed according to predefined signals.

After selecting the Bionic system and pointing the I.M.T.U to specific target made of the metal that will be searched, the device will start scan for ionic fields in direction of user movement and there are same options as in Ionic system can be adjusted:

  • Sensitivity

The user can change the value of signal sensitivity to analyze the output sound, its value range is between 0 and 100, the selected value shown on Sensitivity circular scale.


gold star 3d scanner


  • Gain

It is the signal gain or in other words signal strength, the user can control the signal strength using this setting, and it presented as percentage value (0-100) on circular scale like sensitivity.


gold star 3d scanner


The previous values presented in result screen as circular percentage indicators on right and left sides similar to indicators in Ionic system.
Here there is also a Signal Power or strength indicator displayed below presented as variable-length bars with variable colors and heights based on received signal.

In the center of the screen there is a circular indicator whose movement and colors change according to the type of target and the signal captured with three color possibilities, which are green, red, and blue, related to the type of target.

Based on the received signal, the device also makes an audio tone with pitch and strength related to the position of the target and signal strength.

Live Stream is a system developed to detect various ferrous and non-ferrous metals
in the real time, in form of a live transmission with a visual representation of received signal as specific color stream that reflects the type of the target.


gold star 3d scanner


For example: precious metal like gold or bronze – ferrous metal like iron – cavities such as tunnel.
The process of measuring signals or scanning process is carried out by a Vertical High Signal Transceiver (V.S.T) probe, which is a special developed probe, at the end of it there is a quadrilateral cone on both sides of cone there is a set of LEDs that change its colors according to the type of the target , for example the LEDs will emit a red light if the targets is a golden object or blue if it is a tunnel.

The signals captured by V.S.T after calibration represented on the device screen as continuous color stream that changes its color according to the type of possible target , similarly the color is Red when capturing a precious metal signal and green for normal ground , a numeric value related to the target displayed on screen beside the color stream.
In conjunction with the color indicator the device will generate audio tones based on the target type whose signal is captured.


gold star 3d scanner

Also, the user can see a visual representation of the signals on the bundled tablet that came with the device within Mega Detection Multi Visual Analyzer app that displays the signal scheme in a graph and the color of the graph will change in a similar way depending on the nature of the signal in other words the type of metal or target.

This powerful search system is a new system with completely new technology designed and developed especially for Mega Detection devices with latest technologies in 3D ground scanning technologies.

This 3D ground scan technology uses a new powerful and unique probe called Multi Ground Scanner (M.G.S) with four built-in sensors and large surface area offering more coverage of ground during scan and reduce the time and effort of scanning large areas quickly with more accurate results.

3D Ground Scan system helps the user to scan the ground and create visual representation on both the device screen or bundled tablet. this system can make searching and find burials and artifacts and even cavities under the ground easy to the user with greater speed and more accuracy.
