Nexus swept the competition

For many years, the theory has been promoted that analog detectors are obsolete devices that have gone down in modern history, but their time has irretrievably passed. Is it really true that only modern digital detectors have a raison d’être and are currently leading the way among prospectors?

Less and less often you hear about real knobs in which the main organ was hearing and only hearing. An experienced Seeker/Detector will add something else… separation among the iron. Yes, this is the only solution that limited the iron masking effect of non-ferrous objects.

The test below shows the Nexus MPV3 and a coin covered with various types of nails. Already in the first stage of the test, 99% of digital devices, even from the top shelf for over 10,000. PLN is not able to repeat this test!!!

What happens in the second part does not even require a comment. This cannot be done on any other device. Remember that this detector has full discrimination!

Depth or separation?

Depth or separation? The eternal question and sleepless nights. I choose to separate objects because this is the most crucial thing in the places where I am able to search. The race for a few inches leads to nothing constructive, but the ability to see in iron does. Scrap heavily masks targets, and it’s not big objects and nails, but also decay dust – its condensed oxides!

The electronics of the detector have to process a lot of signals in a moment, and if we add other conductors to this, the time to generate a signal is very short. Larger signals effectively cover the response of small objects – higher conductors.

The level of mineralization of the substrate, the sweep angle, the conduct of the probe, and the frequency of work are important. All this has a dramatic effect on the effects. Wrongly selected detector and incorrectly set, and there is no chance for any effects. I have experienced this many times and it was very painful. A change in approach, improved probe guidance, and higher operating frequency, and we begin to hear signals previously unavailable.

So what is my recipe for a lot of iron? It depends on many parameters, but to simplify … a higher separation speed of the so-called recovery speed, higher operating frequency, lower sensitivity to conditions, and lower discrimination. Slower sweep, still parallels to the ground. You can also raise the probe slightly up … so if we are fighting with large disturbances from the ground. It will be shallower this way, but we will hear objects that we had no idea about before.

Finally, you can use a single high-frequency operation, an adaptive refresh rate device (Nexus MP V3), or a hybrid PI/VLF detector (Tarsacci MDT), but who can afford that?!
