Rayfinder RAYFINDER long range locator offers detection ranges. The user sets the range in meters,
for example 300, 600, 900 …
Targets out of range stop responding.
The selectable ranges indicate also the distance to target, reduce sensitivity to small objects
and assist to accurate pinpointing.
Power for large distance: Rayfinder gold locator features a 24 volts peak-to-peak transmitter, permits to select detection range levels from 300 meters and up to 2100+ meters.Accuracy: The most stable frequency signal possible. Scan gold and other precious metals with frequency accurate down to 0,1 Hz. Find the treasure and ignore the trash.Ground filters: Gone are the days where ground minerals gave false indications. RAYFINDER long range locator senses the ground type and presents an ID number for it. Long range locators that are not smart enough loose depth or give false signals on bad ground. Rayfinder automatically creates the best waveform for depth and metal discrimination on any ground.

Factory and user programs: Modes for gold, silver, copper, bronze, iron, lead, aluminum, diamonds, water, void & other elements. Even more the user can put a target sample on the ground and scan for it’s frequency, to “teach” RAYFINDER long distance locator.
These user settings are stored in memory to be used next time the unit powers on.

RAYFINDER long range locator analyses both
the soil mineral content & level of wetness,
the result appears as ground value identification number, on a scale 00 to 800. This identification number informs the user of the ground type
to be scanned.
 Analyzing the ground  Ground identification number
The advertised long range locators on the market, are nothing else than frequency generators, simple constructions that are not specialized for ground use. Soils have varying combinations of wetness and minerals. Operating frequency generators their signal transmits on conductive ground but doesn’t penetrate at all on loose ground, or on high mineralized soils user receives false target indications.The DGB – digital ground balancing feature, was developed for RAYFINDER long range locator to assist the reliable target indication, to maintain maximum range and stable operation regardless of the ground type.
Even further the “Raytrack” system, completes the ground balancing accurately, by selecting variable waveforms on the transmit frequency to match the soil.DFS “Digital Frequency Synthesis”. RAYFINDER is the only long range locator on the market with signal output from a DSP microprocessor, which is fast enough to run 40 million instructions per second, performing corrections to frequency accuracy automatically.

Every metal has its own specific molecular frequency, up to present long range locators were unable to maintain molecular frequency signal stable enough to make visible only the desired target, faults were common practice from minerals and “ghost” targets due to solar storms and magnetic fields.

 Select the metal mode and a counter informs when the RAYFINDER signal has put enough energy to the ground to start scanning the target. When the counter stops the electromagnetic field is strong enough the message “START SCANNING” alerts the operator to pinpoint the target. All other metal objects in the area are eliminated, and the desired element absorbed enough energy to become visible.

 Rayfinder__.png Signal Receiver – Antenna Rods & Power Module. The Rods
are powered by the Power Module-, they are 45 cm long and plated with a special gold layer therefore not suffering oxidation from the human skin PH.The purpose of the rods is to indicate to the operator, that he has faced the energy line between the RAYFINDER probe and the target. 
Power Module – This unit’s purpose is to power the Antenna Rods. This way the system is not self-potential. By increasing user conductivity, the power module permits everyone to be
a successful user.Power module features a new Weight Check Control (W.C.C) The power module can determine a target’s weight after a target indication has been verified. The weight check is controlled by a rotary knob on the power module.Set low amplification and only large quantities in Kilograms
are located. Select high amplification and smaller quantities corresponding to grammars also are realized.
The unit contains a 9VDC battery for a power supply.
