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.
Our metal detectors are a clever combination of analog/digital
technology and benefits from the latest advances in the field. Our
knowledge of that technology has led us to include a microprocessor,
analysing discrimination signals. This microprocessor, faster for
discrimination signal analysis, gives our detectors an increased power
and stability, as well as a better rejection of unwanted targets. The
simplicity of the discrimination adjustment will allow you to adjust it to
the ground you wish to detect. Our high sensitivity "double D" search
coils, provide very good ground penetration.
The ADX150 functions were simplified to the maximum in order to give
to the beginners an easy access and a great ease of use, while profiting
from optimal performances.
Up graded from the ADX100, ADX150 have now our XP wireless
headphone transmitter (channel 1) already built into its circuit board.
Then you can decide at any moment to get one of our optional wireless
headphone WS2 or WS3.
You will appreciate the sturdiness and the 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.

ALKALINE BATTERIES _________________________
ADX150 is powered with 12 volts from 8 AA
Alkaline batteries using 2 batteries holders, 4
batteries 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.
In the event of nonprolonged use, remove the alkaline batteries from
the detector.
BATTERIES ________________________________________
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 of the electronic 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.

BATTERY LIFE ____________________________________

Batteries NiMh 2300 mA
about 50 hours with headphones.
about 40 hours with headphones.
BATTERY LOW ALERT __________________________
When the alkaline batteries’ voltage is too low, the detection "beep" of
a metallic target radically changes, it becomes more high pitched.
From then, you only have a few detecting hours left, depending on the
batteries you are using. This has the advantage of warning you in plenty
of time about the low condition of the batteries without hindering you
whilst searching.

START I/O, SENSITIVITY _____________
5
Turn the machine on with the SENSITIVITY I/O control.
You will hear some quick "beeps" which will tell you
that the detector is correctly operating.
Then you can detect.
Avoid testing your detector inside your house or in shops
because you can encounter a lot of metallic and
electromagnetic pollution (reinforced concrete,
metallic girder and fluorescent lights).
The control also enables you to adjust the sensitivity of your detector.
The sensitivity level determines the depth of detection and the stability
of your machine. It can be adjusted to suit the environment so as not to
be plagued with false signals.
DISCRIMINATION ________________________________
Discrimination allows you to mask some type of metal
targets. While turning the control, you can choose your
level of discrimination according to your needs.
Switched to All Metal position, discrimination control is
deactivated, your detector pick up all the targets,
ferrous or not-ferrous. This position will enable you to better locate the
ferrous targets.
From level 1, you start to discriminate the ferrous targets.
Between level 6 and 10, you can for example reject the small aluminium
foil.
Set low levels of discrimination, which will enable you to find small
targets more easily.
Before the first use of your detector, familiarise with metal test targets
(Ferrous / Non-Ferrous).
A non-ferrous target will produce a deep, full sound which can be repeated
at the same spot with each sweep. Most of the ferrous targets will be silent
or might produce a choppy sound (short “pops” or “clicks”) which can be
easily recognised.

D E T E C T I N G
T E C H N I Q U E S
ADX150 is a motion detector, which means that a target detection can
be carried out only when the search coil is moving.
When you detect an area, it is important to sweep with the head as
close as possible to the ground with wide movements, but not making
contact with the ground.
Keep the head parallel to the ground following the relief as much as
possible.
To pinpoint a target, use quick crossed sweeps,
with the coil over the target taking note of where the strongest audio
signal is received.
The exact location of the target is under the centre line of the search
coil from front to back and can then be determined by ‘x ing’.

I N S T R U C T I O N S
Our detectors are designed to be as robust as possible, however, like any
electronic precision instrument, they require some care.
The XP search coil cable has been designed so as to resist long term
movement. However you should take some precautions and prolong the
life of your detector :
Ö to remove the connector from the control box, it is important never to pull
the cable but the connector.
Ö It is important to leave enough slack at the bottom of the cable near the
coil to allow for adjusting the coil angle without placing strain on the coil.
Ö It is important not to replace the Velcro with tape as this will centre the
movement on one single part of the cable.
Ö when the box is hipmounted, put it on your side or on your back in order
not to fold the cable of the connector when you lean forward. (Diagram 1)
Ö when the box is hipmounted, to prevent strain on cable and connector,
you should slide the cable through the hipmount bag belt strap. Diagram 2

diagram 1
Not adhering to these precautions will lead to long term damage
of the cable and void the warranty due to user negligence.
ª In the event of nonprolonged use, remove the alkaline
batteries from the detector.
ª Do not expose your detector to high temperatures.

Detecting is an activity, which like other leisure activities
requires some guiding principles. These few recommendations
will allow you to fully enjoy it while respecting laws,
environment and other people.
x Enquire about and abide by the laws in force of the country or
the state before searching. It is of your responsibility to know
them and to abide by them.
x Always ask the permission of the land owners where you want to
search.
x Have regard for the natural environment in which you are
searching.
x Don’t forget to backfill all holes you dig.
Avoid detecting in zones where battles took place
during the wars. Report any suspect object you might
discover to the authorities.
