TECHNICAL INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on the purchase of your ORX and welcome to the world of research and exploration.

You have invested in a high-tech metal detector capable of exceptional performance. The ORX has been designed and manufactured in France.

The ORX is innovative in terms of metal detector design as it offers an unique system based on different wireless elements communicating via a digital radio link. In this new design the coil and remote control have been made independent of each other through the integration of very compact high-capacity lithium batteries.

An ultra-miniature electronic circuit, incorporated in the search coil, digitises and analyses the signals. The signal is processed at the source and not conveyed via a wire link, which greatly improves data quality.

Incorporating components from leading-edge technologies such as scientific instrumentation, has enabled us to produce a powerful, rapid, lightweight, compact and fully controllable digital detector.

Whether you are an experienced user or a beginner, the ORX lets you decide whether or not to modify any of its remote control settings. Powerful pre-configured factory programs enable all users to get started immediately, while expert detectorists can choose more advanced parameters via the intuitive interface.

Lastly, the new patented XP stem has the combined advantages of an S-shaped stem and a straight telescopic stem. It enables you to deploy or fold away the device in just a few seconds, and to change the coil in an instant.

So now you’re ready for a new adventure !

Sensitivity is often described as the setting which adjusts the device’s power level. Increased sensitivity levels can enable the ORX to detect deeper targets but may cause an unstable operation.The most commonly used sensitivity levels range from 50 to 80. It may be necessary to reduce the level if there is too much interference.

Do not test your device in your home or in your garden as there is considerable electromagnetic and metallic interference in urban environments.

-22cm 9’’ coil : 15kHz, 30kHz and 50 kHz.

-Elliptical coil : 15kHz, 30kHz and 80 kHz.

-X35 coil : 4kHz, 8kHz, 12kHz, 17kHz and 25kHz.

They enable you to adapt your machine to suit a wide variety of soils and targets.

IRON VOL

THRESHOLD

Adjust the IAR (Iron Amplitude Rejection) DISCRIMINATION from 0 to 5. It applies only to targets that produce strong signals – typically shallow ferrous items. IAR will not reject deeper targets which may come across as ferrous when they are buried in mineralised ground, this is to ensure good targets are not rejected by mistake. Gold nuggets (buried deep in mineralised ground) generate a similar target signature to a ferrous item. So in this case, it is better to reduce the level of discrimination.

Different tones to help with target identification :

PITCH

IRON TONE (120hz)

1000 Hz

DISCRIMINATION PROGRAMS 3 & 4 COIN

Adjust the discrimination level from 0 to 99 with .

Increasing the discrimination value enables you to gradually reject any target with a conductivity level lower than the selected setting. Eg : if you set the discrimination level to 10, you will reject iron with a value of between 0 and 10.

REACTIVITY

Adjust the Reactivity from 1 to 3 with .

The Reactivity is a vital setting that determines the detector’s performance in terms of how quickly it analyses the signal from detected targets, and its ability to separate the signals from several targets located close together. This is also known as Recovery speed. If the soil contains a great deal of iron, hot rocks or other mineralised debris, soil penetration is generally reduced. The ORX enables you to select a high degree of reactivity which will help you speed up the analysis of signals. However if the ground is "clean", it is better to reduce the Reactivity and sweep slower. The machine will be more sensitive to deep masses and obtain better ground penetration.

The ORX is a fast and selective detector ! Typical recommended Reactivity settings are as follows :

1 Large masses in ground with little iron contamination.

2/2.5 General use.

3 Difficult soils contaminated with iron, hot rocks, etc.

In terms of pure performance, the greatest detection ranges are obtained with low reactivity levels. However, you will find more targets and will penetrate deeper in mineralised ground with medium or high reactivity levels.

06

GROUND

General features

Different levels of soil mineralisation can affect the performance of your detector. For example, this may be due to natural magnetic mineralisation such as iron oxide, hot rocks and magnetite, or sporadic mineralisation from sites of ancient habitation. Other magnetic items include : hearths, pottery, hot rocks, slag etc. You may also experience high mineralisation from black sand and electrically conductive salt water (depending on the beach region).

If your ground is not mineralized (check mineralisation bargraph below), there is no need to adjust your ground balance to a level below 88 : because the ground has not given a significant spurious echo indicating low mineralisation levels.
