The Latest On The Deus V4 High Frequency Gold Coils

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain what this XY graph is plotting to someone new to these types of machines and ID readouts? Are the two numbers conductive and ferrous ID's? I'm assuming one number is X and one is Y, so is the plot a representation of the change in the numbers as the coil moves over the target then?

The XY Visualization mode already exists on the DEUS as a hidden "engineer's function". They made it public so people can play with it. Here are some details:

The V3i has a similar mode called the "Polar Plot" or "Vector Analysis Screen". These type of displays can help identifying ferrous items.

Basically what you are seeing is a graphical representation of the target phase and signal strength.

The xy screen as well as multi tdi, are both present in ver 3.2 although the representation of the graphics looks slightly different. Did XP change anything about this screen other than how you access it. I really like the multi tdi screen, it locks onto numbers and holds them a bit alerting to signals that might warrant a little more investigation, hope they still have access to this screen or have replaced/changed things so it's no longer needed.

Just wondering, and may have already been asked. Will the new V4 upgrade have any improvements on the 3.2 I already have with stock coils .

Yes, several.  Basically everything besides number 6 applies to everyone.

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.

And remember - the V4 software upgrade is free to existing DEUS owners. You can also go back to 3.2 or earlier if you don't like it.

X=reactive and Y=resistive; together they give you the phase. So for a straight line response, the angle of the line is the phase, and the length of the line is the amplitude.

The zoom function on the XY screen is perhaps a powerful function added to the "hidden" XY screen plus if it also gives residual trace will enhance the capability to separate signals. Could be a top tool.

Is it the same with the Deus? What causes the non-straight (squiggly or polar-looking) plots like in the vid Steve linked or what is the interpretation of that sort of plot on a type of target that changes with movement of the target over the coil? 

Is the phase related to VDI (or whatever it's called on a Deus/V3i)? It sounds like you are describing a vector but in the vid the Deus doesn't seem to be plotting vectors since the lines are all the same magnitude. I've never used a V3i, so not sure how similar or different they are.

      Published on Aug 4, 2017 - Testing the new Deus HF elliptical coil against the Garrett AT Gold on a gold earring.
    • By Tnsharpshooter
      This post here for folks interested in Xp Deus, new users of detector and anyone else desiring more information.
      Goal here is to make this more of a one stop shop for folks looking for information concerning Xp Deus.

      I highly encourage all to read the version 4.0 manual.
      It can be found online.
      A lot of Deus units received by folks may indeed have 3.x manuals provided with their units.
      After you use your new unit, go back reread portions of the manual.
      And again repeat this.
      It will take more than a few times to comprehend all.
      And some in field use and testing will go a long ways in understanding some of what is stated in manual.
      Deus is not a dead quiet running unit!!!!
      It will chirp, if used to detect.
      Don't be trying to get it not to chirp.
      Deus, the way it IDs targets is a break away from tradition here when compared to most other Vlf detectors.
      A person air testing their units, this air testing (as it relates to ID) don't paint true pic of how Deus actually works in the field.
      A lot of what Deus can do, how it will sound, how it will react,,,these tendencies can be mimicked a great deal with on top of the ground tests using nonferrous objects and item made of ferrous commonly found while detecting.
      Navigation of unit needs to be mastered.
      The only way to do this  is to navigate, and peek around.
      Especially under the expert tabs.
      Mineralization meter.
      New users should heed the data this meter provides to user.
      It can and will affect some settings as far as performance.
      Ground balance
      User has options.
      KISS priinciple should be applied here.
      A pumping GB over clean ground to start off with.
      Understand the icons for pairing of devices as depicted on remote (if applicable)
      Understand the 2 boxes where ground phase data is supplied.
      Be mindful of silencer setting, this setting can be changed on its own, depending on selected reactvity setting chosen.
      Understand some audio volume while over deeper targets can be had with audio report levels 5 and higher.
      Deus disc layout is not your typical disc layout.
      If offers disc settings expressed in tenths with some settings.
      New users IMO should steer away from all metal modes of detector excluding the use of pinpoint function.
      Users should study the factory program settings depicted toward the rear of manual.
      Users should learn what the term Vdi normalization means, and by turning this feature off,,,know how both means affect detector readings, and find out any advantages by using one setting or the other.
      Understand Deus doesn't have a depth meter per SE,,,but does offer other means to judge depth (generally on coin sized objects).
      Understand the notch feature.
      It's use and affects  is not exactly what a person would think, due to the way Deus IDs targets in the field.
      When asking others for Deus advice,,,you should provide you soil mineral levels generally found in your sites.
      Like refer to mineralization index meter readings as low scale, mid scale or 3/4 scale.
      Deus will behave differently here depending on what the index meter says.
      Users should learn  how to marry their components themselves.
      Very good chance your deus detector will arrive with all components married to one another.
      Pay very close attention to proper charging instructions as far as how the charging clip is connected.
      I think this information above.
      Will get a person on their way.

      Here is link with summary of what version 4 brings.
      http://www.xpmetaldetectorsamericas.com/xp-deus-version-4-features
      Here is link with actual Deus V4 users manual.
      http://www.xpmetaldetectors.com/telechargement/Instruction manual/DEUS_V4_MANUAL_UK.pdf
      Now these links, when read and studied may cause  some folks to asked some questions.
      By all means ask.
      With the talent of folks that visits and or post on this forum, you'll likely get an answer.
       

      Folks will notice the Deus Lite package.
      This is package without remote.
      Here is some info shedding light on the Deus Lite package.
      You may see this referred to as Starter Pack.
      Here is what you have access to via wireless headphone module.
      Factory program number selection
      Remember some of the slots will be blank--- due to no upload
      Disc
      Sensitivity
      Ground balance-- only manual-- no tracking or pumping like you would have with remote
      Frequency
      Number of tones,, to include pitch and full tones
      Sound volume
      Coil selection-- in case you have more than one coil
      So you can see from above,,,you won't have access to the following,, remote purchase allows the following settings changes
      Notch
      Tone break setting
      Tone freq setting
      Reactivity
      Silencer
      Ground notch
      Iron vol adjustment
      Auto ground tracking
      Pumping GB option
      Vdi normalization option
      Xy screen option
      Update version option,, or downgrade version option
      Tx power setting
      Freq shift
      Overload setting
      Pinpoint function
      All metal mode(s) selection
      I think this is most of what you miss with wireless headphone module use ONLY.
      Additional comments  here.
      A person purchasing a Deus package without remote.
      They can use another person's remote and infact update their headphone module  and coil.
      They can by using someone's remote, actually program their setup with programs that entail making changes to the settings outlined above.  (Remote only viewable/adjustable settings)
      If a user does this, they will not have a way to actually view (or change) these settings, but the settings will be felt by user when detecting.
      So a person would need to write down their settings per slot number on remote to remember which settings apply.

      Here's a link with multiple videos talking about Deus.

      Xp classroom and skills center videos.
      http://www.xp-detectors.co.uk
      To conclude here.
      Deus with latest released High Frequency coils looks to have made the Deus a better gold nugget finder.
      So even though this post is in the coin and relic section, gold nugget hunters may find this info useful too.

      The new Deus HF elliptical coil has just slightly smaller dimensions than the 10" Gold Bug 2 coil. The Gold Bug 2 coil is solid and the Deus coil is an open web design. Even more important, the GB2 coil is a concentric as are all Gold Bug 2 coils. The Deus coil is a DD coil. This means the Deus has a more complex response on small shallow targets than the GB2 coil but the DD design may have advantages in more mineralized ground over the GB2 concentric coil.
