G-857 Proton Magnetometer

Geometrics, world-leader in manufacture of geophysical instruments, recently retired the G-856AX Proton Magnetometer after 32 years in production. Geometrics completely re-engineered the instrument into the G-857 offering many new capabilities while maintaining its low price. G-857 features include larger memory, fast data transmission and direct integration with GPS that includes the ability to steer in the field.

All G-856AX accessories will work with the G-857 including the sensor, sensor cable, harness, battery (rechargeable type), charger, staff, RS-232 cable and carrying case. Applications include base station for diurnal correction, geological survey for minerals and basement structure, utilities, archaeology and unexploded ordnance. Existing G-856AX systems can be upgraded with the new electronics board and updated GPS functionality for in-field steering.

The G-857 will be available in October, 2014 and all orders for G-856AX will be transferred to G-857s. Geometrics is offering a low cost upgrade path for the thousands of G-856s still in use.
