Product number: PKI 8270

This very sensitive detector traces hiddenanalogue and digital signals which arefrequentlyused for ignition of IED/RCIED bombs. Up to adistance of 120 cm theoperator is able tohandle the PKI 8270 IED/RCIED Detector-New Versionn which offers an increasedlevel of safety. The PKI 8270 IED/RCIED Detector-New Version has been designedto detect waves of mechanical countdowntimers and cell phones etc. in improvisedexplosive devices such as mechanicaltimingdevices, wrist watches etc. It is equipped with adetection sensor fordetecting conductedcircuits commonly found in IEDs and radiotransmitted wireless devices. This is possibleeven through solid materials such as walls,bricks, glass, plastic, concrete, wood and similar.An integrated display at the detection headshows the results found during the operation.The PKI 8270 IED/RCIED Detector-New Version is an essential device for police,military and special EOD/IEDD forces forapplication at airports, check points,governmentbuildings, police and military zones, oil andchemical zones, religious centres.


Part I: TELESCOPIC SENSOR/ PROBE evaluation unit for high frequency

oscillation and metal intensity.

First device is a combination made of a metal detector and an included nearfield probe/sensor attached to a telescopic rod with variable length adjustment. By turning the case to the left, the telescope lock is released, so that the length of the telescope can be extended by up to twice the length.

To fix and lock the telescope, turn clockwise after setting the desired length of the case. The near-field probe/ sensor not only serves as a metal detector but also for the device’s second function which is to detect electromagnetic fields and radiation from 50 KHz to 960 MHz coming from the targeted object which are reproduced through the spectrum analyser.

The evaluation unit has an LED bar display for the optical reproduction of the detected metal intensity. This is switched on by the METAL TRACKNG switch. A RESET button is used for the Zero = 0 setting. Ready display for active use and alarm indication when detecting metal. The built-in battery for the power supply is charged via the 5VDC socket with the supplied power adapter.

As a sample and for practice, such a receiver is included in the set. Power supply is a 9V battery. If the user sweeps with the tracking sensor head over the supplied active receiver (connect to a 9V battery), the radiation in Spectrum Analyser is made visible. Each remotely controllable bomb includes such a receiver that is detectable with the PKI 8270 probe/ sensor.

How to operate:

The evaluation unit is switched on via the switch with METAL TRACKING or RF.

METAL TRACKING, the device functions as a metal detector. LED bars shows the intensity of the detected object, from green to yellow to red. This is also signalled by the alarm light. The flawless operation is signalled by the green flashing LED lamp (READY). Detection sensitivity can be increased by pressing the RESET button. The alarm can be signalled acoustically by turning the switch from OFF to ON.

The features in the evaluation unit only work if the measurement probe is plugged in. Otherwise, optical signals are not flawless.

RF, the spectrum analyser will be activated. With this spectrum analyser, you can detect all EMC radiation received by the measuring probe (50-960000 KHz). Accuracy, sensitivity and spectrum coverage can be adjusted in the menu.

For a general overwiew, start with a wide a spectrum as posible. Sensitivity can then be increased gradually.

Part II: PKI STETHOSCOPE – Acoustic Detection Unit

The second part in the set is a stethoscope with an oscilloscope. The device can be used to detect sounds from objects. The harder and firmer these objects are, the more efficient detection of the signals. These signals are picked up by an active piezo sensor.

The piezo sensor is attached to the targeted object with the included mastic material (special paste). Depending on the material of the targeted object, thickness can range from 1 mm to 5 mm. The best efficiency or the best result will be achieved by trying out various thickness applications. Lightly press the piezo sensor onto the object to be observed. The mastic material used will ensure that the piezo sensor will stay in place at the targeted place. The device is set clockwise via the VOLUME button. Connect the connecting cable in the INPUT jack which is between the piezo sensor and amplifier. Insert the headphone cable in EAR jack.

This PKI stethoscope with 80,000 times the amplification shows the vibrations via the LCD display. The vibrations recorded are made audible via the headphones. The volume controller not only switches ON/OFF, but also regulates the recorded signals visually as well as acoustically.
