Orx Tone Break?

Recommended Posts

Just curious as to the mid/high tone  break and where it falls in relation to zinc pennies. Its hard to tell from looking at the diagram in the owner manual.

Looks like tone breaks are preset and non adjustable.  There is one gent I think who will  have (Calabash Digger) ORX in USA.  I’ll ask him about this topic and maybe he will do actual video to show tone breaks while sweeping some US coins.

Thanks fellas.  

I’ve gotten used to having the tone break right at zimc so they give a mixed tone with the Kruzer. It’s nice in parks and schoolyards for getting an ID range without having to look at the screen.

Like Steve said I do have a ORX that should be here maybe Wednesday of this coming week.

Here is this old courthouse that sits in the middle of a city block and I have permission to detect. The lady who I guess you’d call her the overseer said others has detected it but found only bottle caps . If I do find any coin I plan on donating to their history display they have.

Air testing with my ORX I got the following in coin fast:

Clad dime 92/high tone

Zinc penny 86/high tone

1943 penny 91/high tone

My wedding band sounds off on the midtone. 

Per the manual bronze coins should read lower, between about 63 to 82.

I have only used it twice and this is my first XP product so you will need to wait for someone else's report for the definitive answer.  I am sure Calabash will provide us with a good video soon.

Regards,

MT

Here is the section from the manual showing the tone breaks vs. ID numbers for the coin programs.

I find the tone break info shown in my last posting to be a little confusing.  It seems to indicate a sliding pitch for iron and then three additional tones. Is this correct or am I misunderstanding this?

Noah,

Like you I am a little confused by the manual info.   I have not found any coins with mine just yet. I have only been relic hunting so far.

Let us know if coins in the wild read differently from air test results.

      I stopped for a bit of detecting after work and set up my Orx which I have in a backpack. I have 2 Orx set-ups which means two WSAudio headphones and two Mi6  pinpointers, and I had the PP paired to the other Orx so I had to remove the Mi6 currently paired to the remote and pair the one I had on me. So having done that I turned the pp on to locate a target. At this time the remote went to the   
      pinpointer screen and then started just beeping strangely and not working. I turned off the pinpointer but the remote stayed on the pinpointer screen beeping. I tried turning off the remote power but it would not power down - it said
                                 Turn Off   Turn Off 
      but holding the power button would not turn it off but It would just Go back to the pinpoint screen. Nothing was working to turn it off and stop the beeping but eventually pressing the top right arrow button got it out of pinpoint mode and I was then able to power down. When I turned it back on everything was back to normal and I was able to detect.    Anyone’s guess as to what the problem was, but if it happens again I’m going to contact XP service center
      ( does anyone have the phone and email for them in case I need to contact them?). 
       Has any Orx or Deus user had a similar thing happen?  
       Glad I have 2 machines in case one goes out for service  
       
            Enjoy the Independence Day weekend  HH

      I went hunting this evening with a friend who was using his Equinox while I was trying out the orx. Yikes!! The orx doesn't like being near the Equinox at all. Is there something I can do besides turn my sensitivity down. That seemed to work but I was hoping there was another option. Thanks!

      I did a little trading and have an orx coming with the x35 coil. I picked this up to partner with the Equinox 800.

      Interesting - a dedicated gold machine by XP incorporating the new high frequency coil and marketed in Africa at a very low price, only $680 http://www.depardetector.com/product/depar/dpr-600/912/511
      Note 9/14/2018 - It took almost two years but it appears the Depar DPR 600 is finally coming to countries other than Africa - announcing the new XP ORX!

      It certainly raises some questions. The first being, will we be able to buy this machine from XP dealers, or is it some sort of special deal for Depar? Personally I would be irritated by that were it to prove to be the case. I think many people here would rather buy this machine at a far lower price than buying a full blown DEUS and then having to pay even more to get the high frequency coil as an accessory.
      The video gives an idea how the high frequency coils may act. The elliptical version of the coil is said to operate at 20, 40, and 80 kHz! (See video). Is this what we will see in the high frequency elliptical for the DEUS? The round HF coil is said to operate at 15, 30, and 60 (56) kHz which is in line with what has been previously advertised.
