Looks like this could be something interesting coming up?? A Constant Current Metal Detector with Driven Transmit Coil

Adam,

Its a PI for sure, they might be updating an existing one?? :idunno: . Sounds like with a constant transmitter that will vary and adjust automatically to soil conditions. It references WO/2008/006178 a lot, in which I have not read yet, so don't know what that pertains to.

The Minelab SDC 2300 is picking up a lot of small nuggets older Minelabs have missed because: Many metal targets, such as small gold nuggets harbour eddy currents with short decay periods. It looks like they will encorporate this also with the sampling.

Time will tell,

Dave

Can it reeeeeaaallyyyy get any better ?????? You still gotta dig all the targets.

Everything can be better and history has proven this. Just look at the iphone.....When will the newer, better models stop? Will there ever be a day that they just cant possibly make the I phone better ? Not likely Minelab continues to progress since the first models, and all that in what could be considered a short period of time.

Hard for me tell if its an updated or new type of PI, but it sounds like better on small targets, better ground balance and more power efficiency.

A PI running on 4 AA batteries! I'll keep dreamin...
