The Latest On The Deus V4 High Frequency Gold Coils

58 posts in this topic

According to the latest post on XP's blog the frequencies of the HF coils are different than published before. The 9" round HF is now 14-30-59 KHz and the Elliptical HF, available in May 2017 is now 14-30-81 KHz. With 81KHz the Deus V4 should be even more sensitive than the GB2.

Hmmmm.... interesting. I was sold on the elliptical but now I have to think about this. I wonder what the true base frequency is? If 14 kHz then 81 kHz may be a high harmonic but will lack energy compared to a Gold Bug 2 at a dedicated 71 kHz. Looks good on paper though. I have to admit I am very skeptical of the May date now after all the other delays. So go for round 9" by next month at max 59 kHz or hold out for elliptical in May (maybe) at max 81 kHz?

I notice the exact dimensions of the elliptical coil are being left unsaid now. In earlier news it was 12cm X 24cm which is 4.72" x 9.45". Maybe different now?

They are now officially being marketed as Gold Prospecting coils, no doubt a disappointment to many - but not me!

Download the latest improvements! Download online the free update for your detector http://www.xpmetaldetectors.com/metal-detector/deus-update/

The V4 software coupled with the new accessories will further enhance - performance, versatility and ergonomics giving you the ultimate Deus experience.

The new version 4 software and accessories have taken the DEUS to yet another new dimension with added performance and versatility. The new MI-6 pinpointer and innovative high-frequency coils have made the Deus far more adaptable to suit a wider range of search scenarios without the need to purchase several different machines to do the same jobs. The DEUS is therefore, once again, the perfect tool for today’s serious metal detector users.

New Optional High Frequency coils:

These extremely sensitive coils operate on a wide range of 21 frequencies, ranging from 13 to 81 kHz depending on coil choice. Search coils 3 base frequencies:

  • 22.5cm (9”) Round DD coil: 14kHz - 30kHz and 59 kHz
  • Elliptical DD coil: 14kHz - 30kHz and 81 kHz

Each coil has a further 7 higher or lower sub frequencies to choose from, allowing a much wider adjustment range. (Previous Deus has 3 sub frequencies) The lower frequencies are intended for general use, they provide good sensitivity to a wide range of targets, the higher frequencies will take the Deus to another level… A level never reached with such versatility, accuracy and stability. You will instantly notice the enhanced sensitivity and the ability to find small targets that have previously been difficult or impossible to locate when searching mineralized ground with competing devices. Apart from the ability to detect through mineralized soil, the HF coils will enhance the signature from weak - low conductive targets or even highly conductive targets, that due to their shape or construction (thin or wired) are beyond the reach of conventional detectors, for example: open rings such as earrings or fine bracelets, wire framed artifacts, gold nuggets, intricate fibula’s, small coins, thin coins, etc. Finally, the new HF coils only weigh 350g and are equipped with the latest higher capacity lithium battery (850mA). The new battery is situated in the lower stem, this is a bonus especially if you are working in a remote area far from a power source.

  • Battery life:20h at 15kHz - 27h at 30khz - 28h at 55 & 80 kHz

Specifications can be changed without notification.

PINPOINTER XP MI-6

The new MI-6 Pinpointer has a wide range of innovative features compared to other products on today’s market:

  • Audio signal is transmitted directly to the DEUS
  • Interference suppression system between MI-6 / DEUS.
  • Lithium rechargeable battery with long battery life.
  • Waterproof: 6 m / 20 ft.
  • Advanced levels of adjustments via the DEUS:
  • 50 levels of sensitivity
  • Adjustable tones
  • 2 audio modes
  • Battery level indicator
  • 4 programs
  • MI-6 recovery mode - find a lost MI-6 even if it has been switched off for several weeks.
  • Fast one touch pairing between the MI-6 / Deus.

Version 4 New Features and Menus

1 New XY Display
Within the Profile menu is the XY screen option, the XY is an oscilloscope display and can be used as the main screen. The XY display may offer a better visual discrimination aid for certain targets that do not have a specific signature, such as certain large ferrous items, bottle caps etc. The display resolution of the XY trace has 10 levels of magnification thanks to a Zoom function accessible by pressing the Pinpoint button for 2 seconds.

2 New Reactivity 2.5
This level of fast and effective reactivity is a perfect default setting; it represents a good compromise especially when searching new terrain.

3 Improved Programs No10 & No4
Prog 10 Gold field: Advanced audio response and reactivity responses have been added. Excellent performance especially when used in conjunction with the new HF coils…now difficult targets can easily be detected in mineralized ground. Prog 4 Pitch: Added iron volume and the new reactivity of 2.5 has made pitch more dynamic.

4 Improved ferrous discrimination range
For those who search in all Metal, the negative discrimination of 0 to -6.4 now makes it possible to hear ferrous targets which in the past have been silent or partially rejected. The lower discrimination range can also enhance the signature from deep targets which may have originally been rejected. The lower discrimination can also be an advantage when searching for difficult targets such as ceramics or even meteorites.

5 Ground Effects
Advanced ground tracking, especially on weak or low mineralized soils. Each frequency adjusts to its own ground effect value. Improved overall signal processing on difficult ground.

6 Display and signal processing compatible with the new HF coils
When using a 21-frequency HF coil, the display is now capable of handling detecting frequencies up to 80kHz (18kHz before), as well as 7 frequency offsets (compared to 3 previously).

7 DEUS has a compatibility with a Smartphone
Target and ground data can now be sent via link to a smartphone. The new application will soon be available for the Deus, features include : Mapping of detected signals, view / save your search tracks, log finds plus much more, all accessed from and your smartphone (soon available on the web).

8 New program No 9 «HOT»
HOT «The Pro setting» this is a find everything program, based on the Full Tone audio mode with a very low discrimination. Hot is a very interactive program offering excellent feedback and target information.

9 New program No 6 «DEEP»
Pro setting for locating deep targets, with moderate discrimination and specific signal processing Improved Non motion Mode Non motion modes are now more advanced offering better identification on a wider target range, with an improved sensitivity to small targets.

10 Improved Non motion Mode
Non motion modes are now more advanced offering better identification on a wider target range, with an improved sensitivity to small targets.

11 Miscellaneous
Thanks to advances in software, the microprocessor can now work much faster. Navigating the menu is smoother than previous Deus versions, with improved processing. The remote control and the headphones still have a respectable battery life of between 18 and
20 hours.

  • Normalization is now a menu feature on XP headphones.
  • The headphone volume is stored when the unit is switched off.
  • The serial number is now used as the coil name.
  • Deleting a coil is done by replacing all the characters with 0.
  • Audio tones now have a higher range – 120 to 993 Hz.
  • Target Normalization mode ON is now the default.

Note: When HF coils are fitted there will be no normalization or TX gain setting available in the menu.

Generally higher frequencies require less windings and therefore high frequency coils can weigh less than low frequency coils. The normal XP DEUS 11 " coil weighs 480 grams (1.06 lbs) and the weight of the 9" stock coil is 420 grams (0.93 lbs).

The new coils are being advertised at 350 grams (are they the same?) or 0.77 lbs. Lighter but does this include the weight of the battery, which is now separate and inside the lower rod?

Any cut in weight is good since the DEUS is nose heavy. What I think is interesting here is the possibility of a much longer life battery mounted under the elbow, extending the operating run time and balancing out the detector. Aftermarket people take note!

I wont be surprise if a new machine is released soon...............where is the improvement of the beach mode.????......if XP release a powerful beach VLF based on the deus concept but working like a CZ they will take another slice of the market waterproof control box ,but same stem and a larger coil with battery in the stem......

I am pretty sure they realised that having the battery in the coil was limiting how much you could "push" the coil after a while ...the coil must detect itself (batterywise).

 

Just my 2 cents.

A U.S. dealer is listing the 9" round HF coil as available for pre-order with an Internet price of $425.00. This coil will supposedly be available in March. The HF elliptical is to follow in May - no word on pricing there yet but should be about the same.

I am going to hold out for the elliptical coil. I have the standard 11" round coil already for larger deeper targets so going as small as possible offers me more benefit. I am as much interested in the 5" width as I am the higher frequency. I still think coin and relic hunters are underestimating what the elliptical coil at 14 kHz is going to do in thick trash versus the 9" round coil. At half the width it is bound to get between trash items better to reveal hidden targets.

I agree! but i wll wait the F75 DST on Fast mode is fast very fast especially with the tiny elliptical will the deus beat it ....i ll read the reviews before i invest more fund into the deus.I asked Mr Loubet one day if he could do a smaller coil he said the market for those coils is very small,also at the time he couldt because of the battery in the coil.............now with the battery in the stem we are talking different business.

MD-Hunter has a Good pictorial review of the new 9" round HF coil. What all comes in the box and how the new "battery in lower stem" setup works.

Kind of bums me out the 9" round shipping now but having to wait a couple more months to lay hands on the elliptical version. Realistically I am not going to have much use for one the next couple months anyway, so I guess I am just jealous!

The video below is in French but worth watching. Near the end he weighs the standard 9" round at 350 grams against the new 9" HF round at 355 grams plus 30 more grams from the external battery. At 385 grams you will be swinging more weight on the end of the rod versus the standard 9" coil. The elliptical may come in lighter and therefore closer to the weight of the standard 9" once the battery is included.

      I enjoy running my Deus units in full tones while hunting,,especially relic hunting.
      But is full tones necessarily the best to run in all cases???
      Can a nonferrous target be missed,,,even a worthy coin???
      The answer to the second question above,,,YES.
      Deus users I recommend you do the following experiment and similar experiements for understanding.
      Take a look at the pic below.
      The ruler is in pic to show nail size.
      Two nails are pictured,,,but only one was used at a time,,,in the position associated with IH penny.
      Deus users using full tones (no disc or very low) sweeping down the barrel of this nail,,(I used  9" coil btw),,do you think you would dig the coin???
      Would I??
      IMO I even with as much Deus experience I have,,,,I would give a less than 40 percent chance of digging.
      What are the symptoms here with this coin and nail configuration??
      You won't get much tone nuance,,little if any to identify,,,,you do get elongated low roar(so near iron grunt) it ain't funny.
      Meter reading will amp to and try to read in the mid20s to 30s,,,but the meter reading don't match the sound provided in the least.
      Btw I have seen some relic iron (solo buried) do the very same thing here.
      So what to do,,,to maybe not miss a find maybe laying in this configuration in an old site???
      IMO,,,users would be serving themselves here well,,,if they have an adjacent program setup,,using regular 2 tone or 3 tones setup,,with disc at level between 6-7,,,I used 7 when testing coin with bigger nail,,,nail procided no tone,,dead quiet,,,,but put the coins,,,IH,,zincoln,,or clad dime as shown in pic,,and a good tone to stop you in your tracks.
      When in the field using full tones,,you hear a longer signal,,dull sounding,,meter reading in 20s or 30s,,toggle to your adjacent 2 or 3 tone program and sweep and listen.

      I was spaced out, staring out the window with my mouth hanging open,contemplating the vagaries that occur in our lives when I was struck by a revelation. Maybe my detector isn't a P.O.S., maybe it is broken?
      The problem is my XP Deus is very noisy in All Metal mode. In the highly variable ground of N. California I can not get it to run quiet in AM. The ground grab function does not get an exacting enough GB so I am forced to manually GB the Deus. It will run smooth for a few feet but then start yakking at me. Re-GB and repeat the scenario ad nauseam. Auto tracking is just as noisy. I have found gold with it listening through the noise but it is mentally fatiguing to try to determine a faint target or is it noise? The Discriminate modes run quiet, the machine is a real peach for coin and relic hunting but All Metal mode just sucks and its bringing me down.
      I know Ray, Scott, Steve and hopefully others on here own a Deus or did. Have your machines exhibited the same behavior? What say you gentlemen?
      Thanks,
      Merton

      Folks,,,I have been seeing some threads,,a few talking about Xp warranty.
      Seems some problems could possibly crop up with warranty repairs.
      I don't know what Xp's formal position is here on warranty repairs,,,,as far as needed paperwork,,registration,etc.
      I will post this link here,,,to maybe shed some light.
      I have commented in this link.

      Scott sent me this Google translate link on what appears to be a credible source discussing a detector show in France.
      https://translate.google.com/translate?act=url&depth=2&hl=en&ie=UTF8&nv=1&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://www.tousapoele.fr/xp-deus-v4-et-nouveaux-accessoires/

      Big news includes a two box coil setup to take the DEUS to the cache hunting world, a pinpointer, phone app, but most of all, that new mystery coil. Version 4 of the DEUS operating system brings with it a new coil that allows for 10, 20, 30, and 40 khz operation. (2/10/17 update - the new frequencies will be 14, 30, and 59 kHz plus 14, 30, and 81 kHz. Go here for latest info) The old coils will not run at these frequencies so this new elliptical will take the DEUS to a whole new level, one with obvious implications for nugget hunters.

      It is also in this leaked dealer video starting around 19 minute mark....
