XP is a well-respected metal detector manufacturer based in France. Their Deus Wireless metal detector is a popular choice with consumers. The XP DEUS is the next generation in detecting technology, with many features that lacks in other detectors, read this XP Deus review for more details.
This product marks a technological breakthrough and is a wonderful innovation when it comes to the design. The patented design/architecture is based on three different elements a remote, a set of audio headphones and a coil. The reason this system is unique is because communication is permitted through a digital radio link.
The coil comprises of all the necessary components needed to process the signals, which now no longer has to be conveyed through a wire link, as it’s analysed and digitalised directly to the device by an ultra-mini digital circuit. This has really improved the overall quality of signal acquisition and further carries information much faster through the radio link.
XP Wireless DEUS Metal Detector – Appearance
This metal detector is easy to handle and transmits information like never before. The entire body is backed by a five year (USA) parts warranty and it’s fully waterproof too. The handle is ergonomic making it easy to manure.
The headphones are lightweight and rechargeable, with volume controls and a program section well detailed. The headphones also come with a carry-case making them easy to take with you.
The control unit is rechargeable and also wireless, that comes with a back-light when using the detector in the night. The controller allows for all the details to be fine-tuned to how the user likes it. You can wear it on your belt, shaft it, mount it or even carry it in your pocket, whatever you fancy.
Being wireless has some advantages – first one is reduction in weight and size, no more issues with storage or folding up the stem and you don’t have to worry about breaking or messing the cables in the plants while detecting.
Second and more important one is gain in signal acquisition quality, as signals no longer need to be transmitting through a wire link but are digitized and analyzed closer to the source by the ultra-miniature electronic circuit housed in the coil.
To eradicate the likelihood of interference between multiple wireless devices, XP DEUS has 36 different channels available. Whenever you start your XP DEUS it start communicating on a random channel from the 36 available channels so the risk of two wireless devices interfering with each other is therefore very low.
