WCZ-1 Proton Magnetometer




WCZ-1 proton magnetometer is developed especially for home practical instance by referring abroad technique. It can measure magnetic in precision of 1nT. The resolving power can reach 0.1nT. These are in accord with the requirement of former Ministry of Geologic and Mineral, China. Its large memory, high resolution, agility make it a portable, mobile, base station fitted magnetometer. By changing the structure of the sonde, it can make the horizontal gradient measurement and the vertical gradient measurement at a resolution of 0.1nT.


mineral prospecting, such as iron ore, lead-zinc mine, copper mine.

cooperative mine prospecting, study the ore body’s burial depth, dipping and continuity, study the ore body’s shape, size, estimate mineral bed’s scale.

prospecting for gas or oil, research geologic structure relevant to gas or oil

geologic survey, geologic mapping

ground diurnal variation for aero-magnetic and marine magnetic survey

faults orientation.



engineering prospecting, e.g, pipeline finding.

earthquake monitoring, volcano monitoring, and other environmental and disaster.

small ferromagnetic objects’finding.


geomagnetic field and normal gradient of geomagnetic field (horizontal gradient component of geomagnetic field or vertical gradient component of geomagnetic field, need special sonde and support).

applicable in field survey or base station measurement.

it has internal clock, store the data and the time together, measure and store at a fixed time.

Large display, Chinese interface, show magnetic curve automatically, easily operation

backlight LCD screen, can be used at night.

personal keyboard, can be used by both hands.

automatically or manually tuned.

potable, all system use gallus, one person can accomplish all task.

RS-232C interface

geologic software for mapping isoclines and section.
