The UWEX® 722 C consists of a search head with joint, which is flanged to the detector handle containing the detector electronics. For normal land use or for working in underwater vegetation an extension rod can be inserted between search head and electronics cylinder.
The detector is switched on by rotating the handle by 180° in a clockwise direction. The ear shell can be removed from the waterproof headset for use with a dry diving suit. The sensitivity adjuster ring permits tuning of the audio threshold.
