Metaldetector XP DEUS

It is common knowledge that an XP Deus metal detector is made to perform with absolute efficiency under all metal detecting conditions; however, a user must know how to let the Deus do its job.

There are many „Turn-On-and-Go” detectors available in the market, only a few of them can hardly compete with the „new generation“ XP Deus metal detector. In addition to a number of unique, innovative features, the Deus stands alone in its class for its versatility when it comes to fine-tuning a metal detector to specific zone criteria by means of only a few programs settings.

Most modern sensors are so incredibly complex with many settings, functions and operating modes with such machines, creating an optimal, functional browser may not be possible, even for an experienced detectorist. That is why some users end up using only the factory settings, which may not allow individual search situation, and, therefore, have passed many valuable targets.

Through much research and experimentation, engineers of  XP came with a „lucky“ combination of settings and features. This combination has proven to be most useful in detecting contemporary metal to be a reality – 90% of the hunting sites are heavily „hammered“ by some growing treasure hunters.

The producers of  XP have created a great product – that is said to be a 21st-century metal detector, and it is for the Deus user to learn and master the machine, to fine-tune to detect your preferences and metal style. Deus is complicated for those who do not bother to learn the settings of the detector and the effects on the performance of the sensor. Those who have the time and effort of studying the manual and experimenting taking application settings achieve great results.

This article is not an „extended“ version of the manual of the entire user that explains everything well, but only in their language – this can be a problem for a beginner. If you liked the XP Deus and had never dealt with a metal detector before, this article will help you a lot. Plus, the Deus‘ factory-set programs, nine of them in version v2.0 and v3.0 and v3.2 ten versions, are extremely efficient for a successful detect right from the start.

This article will also be useful for those who have used different metal detectors before the XP Deus and are well acquainted with „classical“ features of a natural land this metal detector article is for you. For example, the Deus Audio Response feature, if set to a low level, can function as the Whites XLT’s modulation and the Minelab E-Trac Volume Gain if set at a high level. If one of the detectors used earlier, one could optimize value for the Audio Response setting that corresponds to the actual search terms in a field faster than determining all Deus‘ novice user.

My article does not refer to „How-To’s“ for the composition of the Deus, setting a clock, pairing a headset to new roles, edit search engines and quickly switch between them. This article is not intended to explain why there is a flashing light and so on,

The primary purpose of this article is to educate Deus ’novice users about how each Deus‘ ask critical program, either by itself or in conjunction with other institutions, affecting the detector performance under different criteria, and the settings of the Deus‘ directly affect Operation Depth Range. Thus, my article only refers to data that essential functions, settings, and modes that are most relevant to the excellent performance of the Deus.

I am aware that this article will successfully guide new Deus users. In fact, will be 100% for anyone who is a detectorist, and wants to detect at the same level of metal experience and expertise, likes and dislikes, and seek style like mine and hunts under the same conditions (soil and manmade mineralization, types of good and bad goals, types of tracking sites, stratigraphy of cultural layers, types of hot stones in the soil, types of signals induce shards and brick fragments cultural strata, etc.) as the one I chase down.

And even if two equally skilled fighters estimated to have work on the Deus of the same browser, they would not have the same results, because each Detectorist auditory perception is unique, while their visual perception can be somewhat close. Because the Deus is a TONAL metal detector, what counts most is the ability of the user to record, process, and to interpret continuously incoming audio information correctly, when it comes to the decoding of the noise characteristics of the “ complex “ object.

I have worked with other metal detectors, but Dues browser is the best for because these programs create a user-specific search. My programs have worked well in most metal detectors but I can tell you it has been exceptional with dues, and I am sure those of you who have tried using this program have witness a significant improvement in your search experience.

The XP Deus is telling a very different story – this metal deals with the new reality with ease and has great potential. Plus, the Deus‘ factory settings search programs were designed to serve as a sufficient basis for making applications for a broad range of specific metal detection tasks. In fact, the XP Deus requires fine-tuning for each hunting site for optimum performance and the best results. But do not be afraid you are! Instead,  use such a feature of this machine to great advantage!! Once you get the XP Deus know (and read this article – I’m almost kidding Discrimination feature of the XP Deus metal detector consists of two types: Conventional Discrimination and Tonal Discrimination In addition to the ideal option setting (0-99), conventional


DISCRIMINATION function offers the following three options:


As a kind of unwanted targets, as is often observed pull tabs must be dismissed, a user Notch can discrimination be used  to a conductivity group of six


If the unwanted target group (s) to generate a wider conductivity range (more than 6 points), you can make a Multi-Notch option, which allows you to utilize widen the rejection window. Up to three notches rejection, N1, N2, and N3, may be used. So if you want to stick with the most common types of junk goals, you can create a very active notch pattern of conventional discrimination.

De Deus‘ fine-tuning is quick and easy.

It would not be surprising to see a Multi-Tones mode are placed in the discrimination of sub-EXPERT as the Multi-Tones mode represents the revolutionary Tonal Discrimination and is what gives the XP Deus an enormous advantage as compared to a similar product. (But in fact, the deus is the first wireless detector.)

Like most treasure site that contain coins and iron and valuables, using even some Conventional Discrimination in such hunting sites proved impractical.

The engineers of XP considers that fact and were the first to come up with an ingenious idea: by assigning a particular audio tone (sound frequency). To each of the five (or less – depends on a Multi-Tone mode you select) achieve conductivity targets (both desired and undesired), the user can discriminate unwanted targets by sound using selected audio tones, i.e., without using too much Conventional Discrimination!

Iron parts would partly mask the combination with reactivity, Deus the reaction to the desired goals and to identify targets that are onerous to search.

On sites with light junk content, replacing conventional Discrimination audio tonal zones de Deus can respond valuable deep targets located on the border of the Deus‘ Operation Depth Range.


The adjustable audio frequency for each tonal area ranges from 202 Hz (low note) to 791 Hz (high note).

Since a minimum amount of conventional discrimination is still necessary to prevent a lot of iron falling (high tone responses to iron), the first tone in one of the four available modes, 2-Tone, 3-Tone, 4-Tone and 5- Tone, inhabited by Conventional Discrimination. For example, is the upper limit breakpoint first tone (it is called Threshold 1T / 2T *) is 10 (the sound frequency is set to 202 Hz), all iron targets will be rejected conductivity values between 0 and 10.

The selected 202 Hz tone frequency is the lowest tone, and  is assigned to both the first tonal zone (reject area), in the  Iron Volume setting . with the first audio tone when a rejection of segment of the discrimination scale, two-tone mode, 1-Tone, 3-Tone, 2-Tone, the 4-Tone changes in 3-Tone, and 5- Tone 4 Tone automatically. That is why there is no one-Tone option in the Expert submenu of the discrimination function.

Here is an example of practical use of the role Multi-Tones. If the initial tone between (rejects) the iron conductivity area which is 0 to 10, and a user knows that to obtain all desired targets on the hunting site conductivity values above 30, to the conductivity and discrimination scale, she or he can do next. In place of the rejection of the conductivity of 10 to 30, the owner can set the next tonal zone (to 3-, 4- or 5-Tone mode) to that range by adjusting the second break point – Threshold 2T / 3T, 30.

As this series represents unwanted targets, the user can assign the same tone – Audio Frequency (which should not be confused with one of the four Operation Frequencies of Deus is (4 kHz, 8 kHz, 12 kHz and 18 kHz ) is set to the tone of the rejected iron range – 202 kHz. So even if a lot of junk targets with conductivity values below 30 at the hunting site, the Deus will respond to all of them with a low-pitched tone which is not annoying or hard to the ears of the user at all! The significant advantage of the use of low tones instead of zones to reject is that the Deus‘ Operation Depth Range (detection range) is not reduced with the conventional discrimination.

To make it easier to identify the user and to ignore (discriminate) the junk goals through tonal areas in conjunction with the minutes Conventional discrimination, de Deus has a few extra features – Iron Volume and Silencer. These features, if used well, the user can provide audio responses to charities of „wrong“ responses similar sounding distinguished.

PITCH discrimination Mode: Function & Usability

The fourth option in the Discrimination’s EXPERT submenu Pitch which stands alone among other modes is an unusual feature.

In this mode, the audio response of the detector to an individual objective ( ‚good‘ or ‚bad‘) varies in amplitude (volume), pitch (sound frequency) when the response is not generated by the conductivity of the target, but the strength of the purpose of the induced signal. In other words, the smaller or deeper purpose, the weaker and lower in pitch an audio response.

By the signal strength, the function of the Pitch mode is similar to the Audio Response feature, with the only difference that it retains the pitch according to the conductivity of the target, not the target size or depth. The Pitch mode can be used effectively in combination with sufficient Conventional Discrimination (not Tonal Discrimination) where a single goal (such as a gold ring which is missing during the joyous roles in tall grass) is requested and expected. The objective will be easily located using the Pitch mode.

Pitch mode can also be useful for relic hunting to hunting site with a long history as an early medieval settlement site which existed until modern times, and the ground has never been plowed. In this case, a cultural layer can be as thick (up to 1.5 m (5 feet)) that best describe a test pit dug just the multilayer stratigraphy eight (maximum four layers visible) and determine which includes record low of what is desirable or iron bronze artifacts.

Usually, the bottom layer has to be the best material while the top layer has modern rubbish which is indicated by intense reactions. Of course, the Deus would not be able to detect targets to bury five feet deep, or to detect buried targets using a dense layer of the modern trash. Therefore usually removed two feet of topsoil to access the deeper layers of culture. And then, with the aid of the Deus‘ large 13 „x 11“ or even the 11-inch search coil in combination with a deep-seeking search program, one can get valuable objectives using 2.6 feet from the bottom.

Of course, removing two top foot of soil is a hard physical labor and usually only done by digging a prospecting pit (or a few) is required after a „hot“ coin is ridicule. Removal of the upper layers of the soil is usually excellent substituted by them and mixing them with plowing field. This results in more coins are detected each time the field is plowed and harrowed disc-shaped. That is what makes a big difference between hunting sites hidden in the remote forested areas and hunting sites that regularly refreshed in the fields.

NOTE 1: In v3.0 and later versions, the pitch can now be adjusted from 150 Hz to 600 Hz.

NOTE 2: Before your ears get used to the reactions of the detector to different purposes, it is recommended little venational low discrimination which many mixed results (iron falsing) can lead to not use up rusty nails with large heads and DEEP iron. And keep in mind that the response of the detector always deeply buried large metal objects high tone no matter how you set the Conventional Discrimination.

NOTE 3: If you use a third-tone or 4-tone mode of Multi-Tone mode, and you change the operating frequency in your browser during your metal detecting session, make sure that certain desirable goals are not „drop out „conductivity ranges set for valuable targets.


XP Deus TX power setting


The TX Power control a user can select an optimal intensity of emitted electromagnetic field search conditions according to one of the following general types:

1) The soil is contaminated with iron (nails and their fragments, molten blobs, vast and small fragments of metal roofing sheets, pieces of slag, etc.) – The TX power should be set at one). Increasing detection range in question by the superficial iron „blanket“ in the ground, b) the lowest TX Power Level prevents noise of the detector against overload with loud comments on abundant metal junk, easily masked reactions to small and  or part of it may be appropriate block goals and c) reduction of the sending capability improves recognition. The level 1 must also be used to detect the metal takes place at the very mineralized soil.

2) The land has moderate levels of iron junk and minerals – the TX power should be set at 2 (default setting in most factory setting programs) and will be sufficient for most detecting conditions.


3) The ground is free of iron junk, and a level of minerals is small – the TX power should be set at 3 to increase the detection Depth; However, it will consume more energy, so a shorter battery life – almost twice less than in the TX Power at first.

In theory, the TX power set at three increases Deus‘ detection range, but, under real conditions, the increase is noticeable only for the big area (option between settings 1 and three will be about 2 inches). For small coins, the increase is minuscule. Therefore, levels 1 and two practical for detecting small and small coins as medieval hammering reds. The setting of 3 is the default setting for the „Relic“ factory preset program that uses a low 4 kHz frequency (suitable for large deep targets).

NOTE: If you use a Frequency Shift function, you will not be able to change the TX power setting if it is not available in the Sensitivity ‚EXPERT submenu‘
