    Sorex PRO provides the user with the widest range of SI in compliance with his personal choices and types of current tasks. But the main difference between this model and other detectors is its switch option for the so-called searchcoil signal main algorithm (MA) processing.
  • Page 4 Its noteworthy feature is absence of sound response delay, which exists in SSF and MSF algorithms. So, Sorex PRO is a multi-frequency detector. It has a wide range of coils of different sizes and frequencies. It has several switchable main algorithms of signal processing which allows device adjustment for various search conditions: from trashy areas to deep search of single targets.

In case of significant temperature drops (more than 15°С against normal +20°С) we recommend to perform electronic module and searchcoil adaptation procedure one more time (see Searchcoil Replacement).

    In this mode the device also responds to some so-called "hot rocks" of the prolate form. SOREX Pro identifies most of these rocks and does not give sound response to them.

  • Page 26: Multi-Frequency

    To provide device performance in the search for large and small targets many manufacturers produce 2, 3 or 4 frequency detectors. Sorex Pro is a multi-frequency device which allows working with searchcoils of any excitation frequency within the range of 2-22 kHz, putting into action the principle of the sensitivity acceptable for almost any group of targets.

Make additional scanning to detect object type above the center of the object, i.e. on the maximum signal line, keeping distance between the searchcoil and the ground if possible. For the same purpose it is necessary to scan found object in the direction with the least ground relief changes.

With this scanning technique the aforementioned targets would give low tone of sound indication, and the display would show specific shift of the hodographic picture to the left (to the iron sector).
