BOB's XLT PROGRAM

 BASIC ADJUSTMENTS


Target Volume   60  Sets desired loudness of target response. 
Audio Threshold 3-6 Sets threshold loudness or hum for comfortable listening 
Tone (Audio Freq.) 173 Adjust threshold tone or pitch 
Audio Disc  On On for disc response off for all metal mode 
Silent Search OFF On for threshold off for no threshold 
Mixed-Mode OFF Off for discrimination or A.C. response On for all metal (DC) and disc (AC) response.
A.C. Sensitivity  77 Discrimination sensitivity
D.C. Sensitivity   30 All metal and pinpoint sensitivity
Backlight  0 0 is off 1 - 6 is on at different lighting levels
Viewing Angle  25  Adjustment makes display easier to see at different temperatures 

 

PRO OPTIONS  Audio

Ratchet Pinpoint  Off   Automatically detune the loop when pinpointing 
S.A.T. Speed  7 Adjust threshold auto tune speed only in no disc or mixed mode no effect in disc 
Tone I.D. On  Identifies targets by assigning each vdi # a separate tone 
V.C.O On In all metal or pinpoint, as loop approaches target the volume will go up as well as the pitch of the sound. 
Absolute Value Off Big foot coil option
Modulation On Gives full volume on all targets….shallow targets may break up in sound if used in the setting. Set to off when silent search is on 

 

G.E.B./Trac

Autotrac  On Turns autotrac on or off good for maintaining a fixed ground balance
Trac View Off  Allows user to see when the machine tracks 
Autotrac Speed  8 How fast the machine will adjust to the ground when autotrac is on
Trac Inhabit  On Stop ground tracking over targets 
Coarse G.E.B 47 Adjustment of coarse geb (turn auto track off)
Fine G.E.B.  216 Adjustment of fine geb (turn auto track off)

 

Discrimination

Disc. Edit  -96 to +95 Allows user to accept or reject vdi numbers one at a time or to scroll through disc setting 
Block Edit  -96 to +95 accept -40 to +94    accept +95 if no hot rocks gives more depth will also make targets sound better.. if you can stand it 
Learn Accept  Off  On lets the disc accept targets that are swept in front of the loop
Learn Reject Off  On lets the disc reject targets that are swept in front of the loop
Recovery Speed   20  How fast a machine recovers for the next target to high a setting you'll loose depth to low a setting and you get bad target separation 
Bottle cap Reject    1  Higher numbers more iron rejection a setting of 1 makes nickels sound better 

 

Display

Visual Disc. Off Lets you see all the vdi numbers accepted or rejected
Icons  Off  On shows the icon off turns icon off and speeds up display
V.D.I. Sensitivity 85 How sensitivity the display is to the target 86 and higher give 3 digit vdi
D.C. Phase  On  Gives a dc phase vdi number for the target 
Graph Averaging  On  Accumulates targets on the display 
Graph Accumulate On  Accumulates targets on the display 
Fade Rate  11  How fast the display will fade or go down ,,, 0 resets after each target 

 Signal (Transmit, Receive)

Transmit Boost  On Usually on may be better for beach (saltwater) if off 
Transmit Frequency  4  Can be used to stop interference from other whites detectors or maybe even electrical interference 
Pre-amp  5 Adjust the gain of the pre amp setting of 1 is below unity

Spectrum XLT Settings Definition Sheet

Basic Adjustments

Target Volume: Sets the desired loudness of a target response.

Audio Threshold: Sets the desired loudness of the threshold (background hum).

Tone (Audio Freq): Adjusts the tone (pitch) of the threshold (background hum).

Audio Disc.: All Metal Mode or Discriminate mode.

Silent Search: No threshold (background hum) or threshold (background hum).

Mixed Mode: Discrimination (A.C.) response or All Metal (D.C.) and Discrimination (A.C.) response.

A.C. Sensitivity: Discrimination sensitivity.

D.C. Sensitivity: All Metal and pinpoint sensitivity.

Backlight: 0 is off, 1-6 is on at different brightness levels.

Viewing Angle: Adjustment makes the display easier to see at different temperatures.

Pro Options

Audio

Ratchet Pinpointing: Automatically detune the loop when pinpointing.

S.A.T. Speed: Adjust the threshold autotune speed only in no discriminate or mixed mode, has no affect in discriminate mode.

Tone I.D.: Identifies targets by assigning each VDI # a seperate tone.

V.C.O.: In All Metal or pinpoint mode, target response will increase in loudness and pitch as coil approaches target location.

Absolute Value: Big Foot coil option.

Modulation: Gives full volume on all targets, shallow targets may break up a little. This option is forced on when Silent Search is selected.

G.E.B. / TRAC

Autotrac: Turns the autotrac ON or OFF, this is good for maintaining a fixed ground balance point.

Trac View: Allows users to see when the detector autotracs.

Autotrac Speed: How fast the detector will adjust to the ground when autotrac is ON. Autotrac Offset: Can add a positive or negative offset to the ground balance point.

Trac Inhibit: Allows the cancellation of ground tracking overs targets.

Coarse G.E.B.: Adjustment of the coarse G.E.B. (turn autotrac OFF when using).

Fine G.E.B.: Adjustment of the fine G.E.B. (turn autotrac OFF when using). Coarse and Fine G.E.B. are used to manually ground balance the detector. Before using these adjustments, the autotrac feature needs to be OFF. Then you adjust the Coarse and Fine settings until you are close to no variation in sound between the air and ground when the loop is lifted and lowered.

Discrimination

Disc. Edit Accept & Reject: Allows VDI numbers to be accepted or rejected one at a time.

Block Edit: Allows VDI numbers to be accepted or rejected in groups by scrolling. Learn Accept: ON allows targets swept in front of the coil to be accepted by the VDI number the detector reads.

Learn Reject: ON allows targets swept in front of the coil to be rejected by the VDI number the detector reads.

Recovery Speed: How fast the detector recovers for the next target reading, too high of a setting and depth is lost, too low and target separation sensitivity is lost.

Bottle cap Reject: More iron rejection at a high setting, nickels tend to sound better at lower settings.

Display

Visual Disc.: Allows the display of all VDI numbers rejected or accepted when targeted. Icons: Allows the display of icons that represent the targets detected, OFF tends to speed up the display response.

V.D.I. Sensitivity: How sensitive the display is to the target detected, above 85 gives a three digit VDI number.

D.C. Phase: Gives a D.C. Phase VDI number for targets detected.

Graph Averaging: Averages the target VDI hits for the display.

Graph Accumulating: Accumulates target VDI bars on the display instead of clearing out before displaying next target.

Fade Rate: How fast the displayed target VDI bars fade from the display, 0 resets the display after each target.

Signal

Transmit Boost: Usually ON, may be better as OFF when searching a saltwater beach or black sand.

Transmit Frequency: Can be changed to alleviate interference from other detectors operating at the same frequency or possible interference from electrical sources.

Preamp Gain: Adjustment of the sensitivity, higher settings affect both AC and DC sensitivity
