Mode - Indicates which of the five detection modes (Zero, Jewelry,
Custom, Relics or Coins)
has been selected by highlighting the
corresponding word on the LCD screen.
Target ID Legend - Works in conjunction with the Target ID Cursor
to indicate a target's probable identity.
Ferrous (iron) targets will
indicate on the left half, non-ferrous targets that are thin or have low
indicate in the middle, and thick or high
conductivity targets will indicate at the right.
Target ID Cursor (Upper Scale) - The Target ID cursor, in
conjunction with the Target ID Legend,
indicates the probable identity
of a detected target. The upper scale consists of twelve (12) graphic
segments for Target ID.
Lower Scale - The lower scale, or Notch Discrimination Scale,
indicates the discrimination pattern.
The DISCOVER sport will produce an
audible target response for the pixels that are switched on, and
audible response for those that have been switched off. The Target ID
Cursor will always indicate all targets.
The discrimination pattern can
be adjusted by changing modes and / or using the
Accept/Reject (√/×) pushbuttons.
Coin Depth Indicator - The depth of a coin, or similar sized
target, is indicated in 2-inch increments.
Sweep over the target with
the search coil 1 inch from the soil to get the most accurate reading.
Battery Level Indicator - Indicates the current battery condition. The detector will maintain full performance
until the batteries need to be
replaced. Replace batteries when there is only 1 segment remaining. NiMH
batteries may be used, but may have a shorter life per
charge. You can expect 20 to 40 hours of operation depending
type and quality. Access and replace the batteries by sliding the cover
off the control housing. Remove
batteries when the DISCOVER sport will
be stored for longer than 30 days.
Sensitivity Indicator - The DISCOVER sport has eight (8) settings for sensitivity.
11.5*15" Big Coil - Longer detecting distance and deeper searching range.
