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.

      A friend and I spent a couple days swinging around a couple junk filled ghost towns. I am very familiar with the Xp deus. I had also brought with the new to me Xp ORX. I spent my time swinging both the deus/ORX with the 9 Hf, 9x5Hf and my LF 11x13 coils. I found some good stuff and was really able to put the new ORX to work. I kept the ORX equipped with the 9x5hf coil. Deus with 9Hf coil. Also have my 11x13 on a straight shaft to easily switch to that. These site have been hit hard over the last few years by me and a ton of other people and have seen 3 to 4 large group hunts. Heres a few pics

      XP Orx metal detector
    • By DeltaDigger
      I found these buttons yesterday with the ORX. Two of the buttons were "D" buttons and one was a "V" button. While I'm glad the ORX hit the targets I'm unsure how I was able to tell if they were digable targets. Granted I don't have a lot of hours with the ORX but I'm having significant problems trying to identify good targets. The target ID numbers seem to be unreliable and the tones seemed to be slurred once you get past the iron tone. I'm not knocking the machine but was hoping for some tips on the "how to" of recognizing the "dig me" targets.
      I have the HF Elliptical coil and I'm detecting in fairly trashy areas. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks for looking!
      Any chance XP will push an update that may help with TID and tones?
