CONGRATULATIONS ON PURCHASING AN XP METAL DETECTOR

AND WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF RESEARCH AND

EXPLORATION!

You have invested in a high tech detector with extreme performance, designed and developed in France. Therefore, you are taking part in the development of the research in the field of metal detecting undertaken by our company, we thank you for that.

Goldmaxx Power is an exceptional detector to find small targets in difficult type of soil (mineralized*).

Its frequency (18 kHz), makes it a very sensitive to targets that are usually very difficult to detect, like hammered coins, gold nuggets, minims and all other small objects.

The development of the Goldmaxx, Goldmaxx Power has led to the inclusion of a new circuit board with specially optimised specifications. This new powerful circuit board combining performance and choice – two aspects which are usually very difficult to bring together.

Faster target detection through the use of new, more discriminating analogue filters. It will therefore be easier for you to locate targets in iron infested areas.

The transmitter of XP wireless headphones is integrated on your detector's circuit board. You can therefore use your optional XP wireless headphones.

The IRON THRESHOLD potentiometer enables you to adjust the iron level setting threshold to a low tone.

The new FREQ. SHIFT switch gives you the option of choosing between two working channels for XP wireless headphones – channel 1 or channel 2 – and between two detection frequencies

– Freq 1 or Freq 2 – for your detector. You can then search for targets in the same area as another XP detector without any interference issues.

With the Goldmaxx Power you will find more than gold !

You will find it much easier to adjust the controls to optimise your search technique to the type of area you are searching in, thanks to the MultiTone mode with setting of the low tone (IRON LEVEL) and the rocker threshold.

We chose instantaneous sound signalling, rather than an LCD display because of the extraordinary ability of the human ear to analyse compared to an LCD display.

LCD displays cannot respond in real time and do not capture weak signals that are too brief or too close to other signals

Goldmaxx Power sound signalling provides real-time output of the most imperceptible signal.

Goldmaxx Power is fitted with a DD 9” (22.5cm) carbon fibre search head with a more robust coil cover.

Our high sensibility "double D" search coils, provide very good ground penetration.

The optional elliptical 5” x 10” search coil will improve the selectivity on iron infested areas, this is the best complementary coil for the Goldmaxx Power.

The Goldmaxx Power search heads are not compatible with those of other XP detectors due to their specific frequency (18kHz).

You will appreciate the sturdiness and manufacturing quality of our equipment. Because a metal detector is generally used in extreme conditions, we have given full attention to the most sensitive parts. Goldmaxx Power has been developed and manufactured with quality components and material, thus ensuring your XP detector a maximum useful life.

Connector XP : designed to resist movement failures, moulded, completely waterproof, gold contacts (30 µ gold plated)

New Cable, double electromagnetic shield, very resistant, designed to resist movement failures.

Robust, waterproof and lightened search coil,

Very tough polypropylene armrest,

Telescopic stem, stored away instantly and easier handled

Fibreglass impregnated lower stem.

Provided with Hipmount bag/control box cover, backphone and coil cover.

GOLDMAXX Power

Is a high performance detector specially designed to give you greater ease of use.

Before using your detector for the first time, we recommend that you read this instruction manual carefully in order to make full use of its abilities.

* We use the term “mineralized” soil to refer to soil that is naturally iron infested or has become infested due to intense human occupancy (ferrous debris or pottery). The term does not include seawater (salt water) , which is not magnetic but is conductive.

The assembly of your detector will only take you a few seconds.

Put the shaft together as shown on the diagram.

Put the rubber washers on the side of the fibreglass tube (1).

Insert the fibreglass tube on the search head (2).

Insert the new coil fixing parts as shown on the diagram and screw (3).

The electronic box of your detector can be positioned in 2 different ways:

Option 1 : Under the armrest

To fix it, insert the 2 wings of the armrest in the slides of the electronic control unit, as indicated on the diagram.

Once the control box in place

under the armrest, wind the cable around the telescopic shaft as indicated on the photo.

Use the 2 pieces of Velcro® (A and B) to keep the cable in a spiral

position.

Insert now the connector (female) in its panel connector (male), screw it, the connector is now watertight.

To hold the cable along the telescopic stem you can use Velcro® strip as shown on the photo below(C & D).

Option 2 : Electronic box hipmounted

Insert the control box into the hipmount bag. Then insert the connector (female) in its panel

connector (male) and screw it.

Removal of control box

To remove the control box from the armrest, proceed as indicated below.

Put your hands around the control box and press slightly with your thumbs on the side of the armrest (1).

Whilst you keep the pressure on, slip the armrest off, and remove completely the control box from the armrest (2).

The hipmount bag provided with your detector can allow you to protect your detector from rain when the electronic box is fixed on the armrest.

ALKALINE BATTERIES____________________________

GOLDMAXX Power powered with 12 volts from 8 AA Alkaline battery using 2 battery holders, 4 batteries in each.

Pay close attention to the battery ± polarity before inserting the batteries holders in the electronic box.

The metal rivets (3) of the batteries holder must be on the right (-). Screw the nuts 1 and 2 to close the batteries lid, not toot tight.

If you are not using the detector for more than a month, remove the alkaline batteries from the detector.

BATTERIES NIMH__________________________________

To power your detector you can use rechargeable battery.

The insertion of the rechargeable battery is similar to the Alkaline batteries.

Recharging the batteries can be done in a very simple way:

Always turn off the detector before recharging batteries. Remove the search coil connector from the control box and insert the charger instead. 12 to 18 hours are necessary to have a full recharge.

Avoid leaving the batteries recharging for more than 20 hours.

WARNING! Before inserting your charger, check that you are not recharging alkaline batteries.
