Command Wire Detector


 Command Wire Detector


This Command Wire Detector is the CEIA CWD,a lightweight and portable device featuring the capability of detecting command wires of any diameter and type, in conductive and non-conductive soils, including laterite and magnetite.

  • Light Weight & Portable
  • Detects Command Wires of Any Size or Type
  • Works in Conductive or Non-Conductive Soil
  • No Calibration Required
  • Built in Ni-MH Battery Charges in less than 3 hours


The Metal Detector comprises a search head, a control unit, a telescopic pole and an elbow support all jointed together in a one-piece foldable design that allows the CEIA CWD to be operational in a very short time and to be carried easily everywhere.

Detection is independent of wire orientation with respect to the Search Head. In addition, the CEIA CWD does not require any manual calibration: optimum sensitivity is ensured over all types of terrain due to CEIA's exclusive Automatic Soil Compensation System.

The detector is manufactured in compliance with the ISO-9001 standard and has been designed to meet and exceed the relevant Military Environmental Standard most stringent operational detection requirements (MIL-STD -810G). The detector is equipped with a built-in Ni-MH battery charger which allows the batteries to be recharged (in 3 hours max) without the need to extract them from the unit.
