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.

      Hi Steve & All
      Im UK based and detect for coins, relics, well just about anything really, I may even have found some info of a river that may produce gold,
      Im not sure how many of you guys can help, Im in the market for a new detector and I have been pondering the XP Deus for some time but have held fire on my purchase because of the release of the Nokta Impact, I am always on this site looking at the reviews etc and wanted to hear any experiences of the Nokta Impact, I know its early days yet and reviews are thin on the ground, but experts like yourselves will have an initial feeling about new gear and instantly know if you like it or not,
      in the UK the Deus will be around £300-£350 more expencive than the Impact, so my question is to those who may have both, Which do you prefer, why, which would be your go to machine, does the Impact compare to the Deus, which do you think maybe the best all rounder, is the Deus worth the extra $
      Any help is greatfully received, Thanks in Advance, Shanan

      Since the V4 update came out, it has been real quiet on here. Anyone using the update with any success? Anyone figuring out the programs and making any custom ones? 
      I got a custom program from a friend. For iron infested areas. He was explaining to me the Deus was made for European hunting. Of course I knew that. But he further explained that they have wrought-iron in Europe and we don't we don't have so much in the states. So he has figured out a program that is better suited for the iron and steel in the united states. So I am going to go test run it. So if you have any success stories or issues, please share. That is my goal with the Deus this year, is to learn it, and become more proficient with it.

      I am seeing folks report problems with V4.
      I have recently downloaded and updated both my units.
      If I try to go to disc,,and hit expert keys,,screen freeze.
      The same with notch selected,,,hit expert screen freeze.
      Also no freq shift allowed,,screen freeze.
      Have to power down to get out of screens.
      Some folks are not having this problem,,but many are.
      Seems going back to 3.2 version solves all these problems.
      Stay tuned.

      Alright, another hunt today,,5 hours long,,same site as yesterday.
      I feel the need to share some I think worthy information.
      Xp Deus version 4,, is quite a bit different from version 3.2.
      Overall it is better,,will I think make some sites come alive again,,hunted previously with any detector really even Deus and previous versions to Version 4.
      I listened close today,,and did make some worthy finds,,,considering all or maybe some of these has had a detector coil over them by me personally during the course of the last 6 years.
      So what is different with version 4??
      First let me say,,,so far my exclusive use of version 4 really is running the hot program.
      I ran disc setting again today using full tones  disc between 2.0 and 2.5., I did find a few finds by using,,and with time in the site today,,I really started bearing down.
      My goal was to try and start seeing if by audio alone and how it behaved,,could I start cracking the code on maybe trying to realize what real challenged nonferrous might just sound like.
      Well I tried using the disc settings above,,,whalt happened???
      I was digging nails,,,yes nails sounded pretty darn good,,,one thing though about these signals here I was digging,,they were a bit shorter,,but has the other characteristics of usually what a good hit would sound like.
      Well as I went t along,,I got over another one of these similar behaving/sounding targets,,,so I'm saying to myself,,huh and other nail???
      Well here is where the light bulb started brighter,,,I started reducing disc,,got to zero,. this suspect target still sounded like a good hit(closer),,so I just kept lowering disc,,and sweeping,,,,when I got to -2.5--- Eureka!!
      With disc setting -2.5 in full tones using version 4,,, to me this sounds awfully close to version 3.2 does.
      Meaning the Deus over nails,,,give the rolling sounds,,with grunts.
      I hunted for around 2 hours using in the site,,,,and the site sounded like I was running 3.2 (almost),, and this here is BIG.
      Deus version 4,, based even on so far roughly 8 hours in the field,,,has even more of an inate ability to find nonferrous in iron and nails,,,but ALSO has the more inate ability even a user will listen to tone intelligence/ characteristics,,,to ID ferrous materials with unusually shapes,,including round(er).
      And before a person says,,Well Deus has always liked round,,,yes I know this,,,but I think now,,,even in a separation and unmasking detecting scenario,,,it is seeing more here on even ferrous,,,and I think this carries over to the nonferrous side as well.
      Some folks may have thought Deus version 3.2 was the end all for Xp,,,well I got news for those who thought --Wrong.
      I do realize due to weather, some Deus users are grounded so to speak,,,all I can say,,is if you are a Deus runner,,and enjoyed running full tones using 3.2 with zero and even lower disc,,,I highly recommend you opt for disc setting of -2.5,, for your self,,,to at least establish a base line of sorts,,,this I think will help you and speed up your learning curve overall.
      In the pic,,ferrous on top,,nonferrous on the bottom.
      The 2 nonferrous button and brass thingy,,dug on edge around 5-5.5" deep,,the bigger item towards the right is lead,,,looks a lot like the find I dug earlier here.  This particualr find,,,I would almost bet the farm,,if swung over using Deus version 3.2,, user would be thinking iron.
      The little musket ball,,a mere 1.5" deep,,,covered with ferrous too,,and the little flat button a mere 3" deep.
      The iron finds,,they had quite a bit of signature of being nonferrous,,,I really think Deus with version 3.2 would have be used to study these targets,,,likely would have called them moreso iron. Not as much of a way to base audio on the shape of ferrous.
      Seems version 4 has narrowed the gap a bit as far as ferrous and nonferrous,, distinguishing with tone.
      I have always said,,and folks I think don't realize this,,,most folks seem to guide their thinking on how well a detector sees nonferrous or alerts on it or recognizes it.
      But something equally important is how a detector recognizes iron and nails and the degree to which they do.  I mean a detector has to do both well,,to be a very good detecto IMO.  I would also bet,, version 4 Deus is better on say half of coins in ground and in nails and iron vs Deus 3.2.
      Dragnet is wider using version 4.0....

      Alright,
      Deus V4 hunt, 9" coil.
      Three and a half hours roughly.
      I can already say this based on this short period of using V4 in the wild.
      The $1 and $2.50 USA gold coins,,the half dimes,,even the real worn ones,,eagle cuff buttons,,,,all should be shaking in their boots.
      Version 4 is no BS folks.
      Very solid performer.
      This site I've spent a lot of time on,,I call this one of my detector proving grounds site,,,cause it is challenging,,and I take certain models detectors here to just see what happens.
      I only ran the hot program on Deus version 4,,, 90 sens ,,,dead on GB,,,reactivity 2.5 silencer -1.
      Super signals provided on these targets in pic.
      I have dug similar finds in this site with Deus version 2 and 3.2,,So I know what most of them sounded like,,,these targets today BIG difference.
      I encourage relic hunters at least to waste no time updating their detectors
      to version 4.
      So besides the super signals on these targets what else did I see.
      Don't know what this means exactly,,,all of these targets but one,,,could not be detected in plug even if the plug was turned right side up.
      The harmonica reed was pretty deep,,,and it had a bit of iron twang to it.
      I compared hot program to Deus fast program with the same settings dialed in,,,they seem different to me.
      I will bet over the last 3 years somebody in the USA with Deus has actually swung over a $1 gold coin,,not that deep mind you,,,and never was alerted.
      If they would have had version 4 Deus running in hot program,,this coin would have been recovered.
      I checked the mineralization meter,,remember Inwas using 9" coil,,,4 ticks in the meter,,checked in 3 different spots.
      Hot program seems a bit sparkier in iron,,,and here is some thing I never notice before with version 3.2.  If a person using hot program,,if they hover their coil over iron they will make it sound like a more diggable signal.
      I played a bit with negative Disc,,,but I hunted with disc level at 2.5 using full tones.
      Version 4 seems to make shakier version 3.2 signals,,and turns them into full fledged good signal.
      Big congrats deserving to Xp here,,,I really mean this too.
      I expect to see some nice finds made with version 4 Deus runners.
      I have been hunting this site for 6 years,,on and off,,mostly on,,,today,,for time hunted my most productive hunt,,and to think I was wet behind the ears with version 4,,,,this should tell folks some thing,,,it does me.
      The three finds top left are ferrous,,the rest nonferrous.
      This site has never produced much for me over the years,,straight across the road,,that spot has been a lot better for me,,,now I got to hunt it using version 4. No telling what I'll find,,that is where the contemporary capped bust dime was found.
