This setting is present in the Anfibio Multi only.
Anfibio offers 3 operating frequencies — 5kHz, 14kHz and 20kHz— to suit different target and soil types.
Based on the frequency selected, the detector’s detection performance for different types of targets will vary. The list below includes, but are not limited to, different types of targets that correspond to each frequency:
5kHz : Large ferrous and non-ferrous objects / High conductive coins / Medium or relatively small targets in non-mineralized ground without iron trash / Ferrous masses and militaria
14kHz : General use / Small coins / Different size coins in medium-highly mineralized ground
20kHz : Small coins with different conductivities and thin large coins / Gold coins, rings, small jewelry , sheet iron, foil / Small targets in iron trash
To change the operating frequency of the device and select FREQ. from OPTIONS: Then simply change the frequency using the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons. You will hear the sound of the relay circuit; this is normal. At the same time, the progress bar will move back and forth on the ID bar and will stop when the frequency is changed.
The selected frequency will be displayed in the messages section as follows: FLo for 5kHz, FMED for 14kHz and FHI for 20kHz.
This control allows you to increase or decrease the device’s volume based on your preference and environmental conditions. Volume level can be adjusted from 0 to 10. When you turn off and on the device, it will start with the last volume level you chose. This setting is common to all modes; changes will take effect in all modes.
Because the volume level affects power consumption, we recommend you not to increase it more than necessary.
When you change the volume of the device with this setting, the volume of the metal zones adjusted by the TONE V. setting will also change proportionally. In other words, TONE V. setting lets you adjust the volume of the metal zones according to the general volume of the device. When you adjust the volume of the device, the volume of the metal zones will increase or decrease as well.
It enables you to adjust display backlight level according to your personal preference. It ranges between 0-5 and C1-C5. At 0 level, the backlight is off. When set between 1-5, it lights up only for a short period of time when a target is detected or while navigating the menu and then it goes off. At C1-C5 levels, it will be continuously lit. The continuous operation of the backlight will affect power consumption, which is not recommended.
The backlight setting is restored to the final saved setting when the device is turned off and on again. This setting is common in all modes; change made in any mode also applies to the other modes.
This feature provides feedback to the user by producing a vibration effect when a target is detected. It can be used independently or together with the audio response. When audio response is disabled, all feedbacks are provided to the user as vibration only during target detection.
Vibration setting is adjusted within the range of 00-05. When it is switched to 0, vibration feature is completely disabled. If the vibration is at 01 level, the device provides long vibration signals and at 05 it provides short vibration signals. The magnitude of the vibration effect can vary according to the depth of the target and the swinging speed. This setting is common in all search modes; change made in any mode also applies to the other modes. Vibration will not work in CACHE mode except when the device goes into overload.
Vibration may not be felt in the General Search modes (GEN and GEN Delta) with weak signals; it will be felt as the signal gets stronger. In other words, vibration does not start at the depth where the audio tones are heard but at a lesser depth. Therefore, if you are detecting with vibration only and audio tones are off, you can miss weaker and deeper signals.
Vibration speed is constant in the pinpoint mode and cannot be adjusted. Vibration is off at 0 position. 01-05 values provide the same level of vibration in the pinpoint mode. When vibration is used in the pinpoint mode, vibration speed increases as the target is approached and it reaches the maximum level over the center of the target.
The vibration setting is restored to the final saved setting when the device is turned off and on again. This setting is common in all modes; change made in any mode also applies to the other modes.
Target ID Depth – ID DEPTH
Adjusts the depth level that the device displays an ID for a detected target. It consists of 3 levels: Hi (High), In (Intermediate), Lo (Low). Factory default is set to ”In”.
The lower the ID depth level is, the higher the ID accuracy and vice versa. At the high level, the IDs may become jumpy.
To change the ID Depth Level in the Anfibio Multi and Anfibio 14 models, select ID DEPTH from OPTIONS: Then simply choose the level you want using the plus (+) or minus (-) button.
To change the ID Depth Level in the Anfibio 19, keeping the PP button pressed down, press the up button. Each time you press the up button, the ID Depth Level will change.
When tracking is active (01 position), the device continuously tracks the changing ground structures and automatically reconfigures the ground balance setting. The invisible changes in ground affect the detection depth as well as the discrimination ability of the device so it is possible to operate the device at higher performance using this feature under suitable ground conditions. Please refer to the pages about Ground Balance for more information on Tracking.
When tracking is activated, “Tracking” will be displayed at the bottom of the GB window.
NOTE: Tracking is recommended to be used in the GEN and GEN Delta modes and not in the discrimination modes.
Frequency Shift (FQ SHIFT)
It is used to eliminate the electromagnetic interference that the device receives from another detector which operates in the same frequency range nearby or from the surroundings. If too much noise is received when the search coil is lifted in the air, this may be caused by the local electromagnetic signals or excessive gain settings.
To eliminate the noise caused by electromagnetic interference, try shifting the frequency first (FQ SHIFT before lowering the gain to obtain maximum depth performance . Frequency shift consists of 5 steps. Default setting is F3 which is the central frequency.
To shift the frequency, first select FQ SHIFT from OPTIONS. Then, you can shift the frequency between F1-F5 using the plus (+) and the minus (-) buttons.
Frequency shift may impair performance. Therefore, it is suggested that you do not shift the frequency unless it is necessary.
Factory Default /Save (FD/SAVE)
With the FD/SAVE feature of the Anfibio, you can save your settings or restore factory defaults. Save function saves all settings except for the ground balance and tracking. The device starts in the last mode where the save function was performed.
To save your settings, select FD/SAVE on screen. Two dashes (–) will be displayed on screen. Push the right button. When ”SA” is displayed, press the SELECT button once. The progress bar will move back and forth on the ID bar. When saving is completed, the progress bar will stop and the SA text will disappear.
To go back to factory defaults, select FD/Save on screen. Two dashes (–) will be displayed on screen. Push the left button. When ”Fd” is displayed, press the SELECT button once. The progress bar will move back and forth on the ID bar. When the process is completed, the progress bar will stop and the Fd text will disappear.
Wireless Connection (WIRELESS)
It is used to turn on and off the wireless headphones connection and to change the channel.
After choosing the WIRELESS option, you can change the channels between 00-19 or you can completely turn the wireless connection off by choosing the oF (off) position.
For more detailed info about the wireless headphones, please read the instructions included with the headphones.
