CEIA CMD Compact Metal Detector


The CEIA CMD is a very high performance, high-sensitivity Compact Metal Detector designed to detect metal and minimum-metal content targets in conductive and non-conductive soils, including laterite and magnetite.


Intentionally designed to be used easily and comfortably in every working condition, the CEIA CMD can be set up for operation in less than twenty seconds.

The Metal Detector offers the best combination of functional and operational characteristics: it provides the highest ratio between overall dimensions, detection depth and operational weight.

The length of the telescopic pole can be adjusted for operation in upright, kneeling or prone positions.

The special shape of the CEIA CMD search head gets simultaneously the fastest advance rate and inspection capability of narrow spaces.


The Metal Detector consists of a search head, a control unit, a telescopic pole and an elbow support jointed together in a one-piece design. The detection head is light and the wiring is designed to be protected from any possible damage.

The one-piece foldable design allows the CEIA CMD Metal Detector to be operational in a very short time and to be carried easily everywhere.

The detector is equipped with a built-in Ni-MH battery charger which allows the batteries to be recharged (in 3 hour max) without the need to extract them from the unit.

This also allows full environmental protection of components and maximum operational speed for the user.

Ceia Technical Service

We do maintenance and repair of CEI mine detectors in the inventory of Turkish Armed Forces.

The detector is manufactured in compliance with the ISO-9001 standard and has been designed to satisfy the most stringent operational requirements in any application field.

Exclusive Automatic Soil Compensation System

The CEIA CMD does not require any manual calibration; in addition, optimum sensitivity is ensured over all types of terrain due to CEIA’s Exclusive Automatic Soil Compensation System.
Localization of metal objects is optimized by an Acoustic Modulation pinpointing system aided by a Visual LED bar graph, which allows the position of the detected mass to be identified accurately.
If desired, the led bar can be masked with a snapdown cover so as to avoid remote visibility (stealth operations).
