30 years of measuring tools from Bosch: DMO 10 digital metal detector ‒ predecessor of modern detectors

Bosch launched the first measuring tools on the market 30 years ago. Something which by today’s standards was basically as modern as a computer with a tube monitor represented a pioneering feat in 1992: The ‘Bosch high-tech bloodhound’, the affectionate name given to the DMO 10, reliably detected hidden metal objects underneath drilling locations. The DMO 10 was unique since it offered depth measurement of up to 50 mm for the first time instead of displaying objects without any depth information, something that had been normal up until then. The DMO 10 was intended to enable users of Bosch hammer drills in the successfully established 2-kilogram class to drill holes in walls without damaging the then expensive hammer drills on reinforcement bars or hitting electric wires.
