1. Elimination - Reference to a metal being "eliminated" means that the
detector will not emit a tone,
nor light up an indicator, when a
specified object passes through the search coil's detection field.
2. Discrimination - When the detector emits different tones for
different types of metals, and when the detector
metals, we refer to this as the detector "Discriminating" among
different types of metals.
3. Pinpointing - Pinpointing is the process of finding the exact
location of a buried object. Long-buried metals
can appear to the eye
exactly like the surrounding soil, and can therefore be very hard to
isolate from the soil.
4. V.C.O. - Meaning "voltage controlled oscillator", the V.C.O.
audio method causes both the audio pitch and the
volume to rise as
signal strength increases. V.C.O. Improves the user's ability to
interpret a target's size and depth.
5. Ground Balance - Ground balancing is the ability of the detector
to ignore, or "see through"
the earth's naturally occurring minerals,
and only sound a tone when a metal object is detected.
6. Target ID - Different types of metals are classified along the
arc at the top of the screen on a 0-100 scale from left to right.
2-digit numerical reading is also provided in the middle of the display
for more precise target identification in Discrimination Mode.
7. 11.5*15" Big Coil - Longer detecting distance and deeper searching range.
