JW Fishers Metal Detectors

JW Fishers Underwater Metal Detectors | www.jwfishers.comFor over thirty years JW Fishers has specialized in the design and manufacture of reasonably priced, high tech underwater search equipment. The product line includes diver-held and boat-towed metal detectors, marine magnetometers, underwater camera systems, ROVs, and side scan sonar.

The company was founded in the mid-sixties by current president and CEO Jack Fisher. It all started when Mr. Fisher, an avid diver, needed an underwater metal detector to use on a salvage project. Finding there was no such product available for recreational divers, over several years he developed and built his own underwater metal detector. JW Fishers Mfg. was formed and Mr. Fisher began offering his detectors for sale to other recreational divers. As a result of customer requests for a line of commercial quality detectors, the company designed and built more powerful models that could cover larger areas.


The claim-to-fame of these pulse induction detectors is their ability to ignore minerals in the environment while maintaining high sensitivity to all metal targets. They are not affected by highly mineralized salt water, coral, rocks with a high iron content, or magnetic (black) sand; all of which drive conventional metal detectors crazy. Detects all metals from coins and jewelry, to anchors and cannons. The diver is alerted to presence of a metal target by both visual readout (shown on the meter) and an audio output (heard in the underwater earphone). The detection range for a target is unaffected by the medium between the detector's coil and the metal object. Performance does not vary whether detecting through air, water, silt, sand, or solid coral.

Powered by an internal 9 volt rechargeable battery pack, the detector will easily run all day on a full charge. Recharge the battery overnight, and it's ready for another full day of hunting.


 All detectors and accessories special order. Please allow for additional lead time.


SAR-1

This new detector was specially designed for use by public safety dive teams, law enforcement agencies and military units that need to locate metal objects in poor visibility underwater environments. The SAR-1 alerts the operator to the presence of metal by vibration which is transmitted through the handle. Even in zero visibility, the user can feel the intense vibration conducted through the detector’s handle and into the diver’s arm. In addition to vibration, the detector also has a high intensity LED display which is directly in front of the diver’s face and easy to see in all but the worst conditions.

SAR-1 | JW Fishers Metal Detectors |  JW Fishers specifically designed the SAR-1 for use by military, law enforcement and public safety dive teams to locate metallic objects in low visibility environments.  The SAR-1 was first introduced at the 2016 DEMA Show. Many Public Safety teams expressed great interest in acquiring one of the new metal detectors as well as several FBI dive units. 

Other key features of the SAR-1 are it’s “snareless” design with no external wires or cables, rugged construction, streamlined configuration, and bright yellow search coil which helps guide the operator to the target in low viz environments. The 8 inch search coil has excellent detection capability on a range of targets from small shell casings to weapons and explosive devices. Larger targets can be detected at more than 5 feet. The material between the search coil and the metal object does not affect the detector’s range. Whether detecting through air water, silt, sand, mud, or rock, the detection range remains the same.

The SAR-1 has rechargeable batteries which power the detector for up to 12 hours. Use the detector all day long, recharge overnight, and you’re ready for another full day of detecting. Unlike some manufacturer’s that void the warranty on their detectors if the housing is ever opened, Fishers allows batteries to be field replaceable by the customer should it ever be required. The SAR-1 comes with 120 volt AC and 12 volt DC battery chargers, and a heavy duty Cordura nylon carry bag.

The SAR 1 is backed by Fishers exclusive, unconditional TWO YEAR warranty.

(Accessory pricing when ordered in same shipment as detector)

JW Fishers Underwater connector on coil wire | Underwater connector on coil wire:
The "underwater connector on coil wire" option allows the standard 7.5" coil to be detached from the detector's electronics housing so any of the optional coils can be attached. The optional coils greatly increase the versatility and enhance the capabilities of these detectors. One detector with a few different coils can do the work of two or three different detectors. The Pulse 6X and 8X can be used on land, dive to 200 foot depths, or deployed from a boat.

JW Fishers 5" Metal Detector coil |

5" Coil:
The 5 inch coil is the smallest coil that can be used on both the land handle and diver handle. This coil was specifically designed for nugget hunting and for other very small targets in streams and lakes. It works equally well for land hunting. The coil is well suited for detecting targets lodged between rocks or crevices in reefs.
P6/8X must be ordered with optional u/w connector to use this coil.

JW Fishers 10" Metal Detector coil | 10" Coil:
The 10 inch coil has a detection envelope that extends to almost three feet on either side of the coil and six feet below the coil. This coil's detection envelope is slightly larger than the standard 7.5 inch coil which comes on all Pulse 6X and 8X detectors. The larger detection pattern allows an area to be searched more quickly with fewer sweeps of the coil. The 10 inch coil will detect larger targets at slightly deeper depths than the 7.5 inch coil but, is not quite as sensitive to the smaller targets such as rings and other jewelry items.
P6/8X must be ordered with optional u/w connector to use this coil.
