The fisher F2 Metal Detector is an entry-level instrument in Fisher's search engine lineup. Let's take a closer look at all features and possibilities of this detector! The device is made in a standard configuration-three sectional "S "-a shaped bar in which the lower component is made of special plastic, and the top two-of aluminum, painted powder paint in a pleasant golden color, easily assembled, Sections are fixed with the help of special collet clamps, giving the design strength and completely depriving it the slightest backlash in the joints. The thin cable, going from a coil to a control unit, allows to wind it around a rod sufficiently densely, that promote two additional clamp made of fabric "Velcro ", providing excellent work of the device without false positives, Which sometimes happen on the Metalloiskateljah, where the thick cable is hard enough to wrap tightly around the rod.
The comfortable armrest perfectly locks the elbow, which is facilitated by the soft substrate of the type "foam ", glued inside the armrest. In the armrest, two holes are made in case you want to use a special latch that excludes the bounce of the elbow from the armrest. The handle of the metal detector is made of soft foamed plastic, it is perfectly in the hand, which will allow you to conduct the search for a long time without fatigue. It will not allow your hand to freeze in cold weather, it is important when looking for spring and autumn. The adjustment holes in the middle rod are made in such a way that with this device it is possible to search for the person of any growth, easily and quickly adjusting length of a bar under the height. In assembled form the device weighs only 1.2 kg, it is very light and surprisingly balanced device, so the search process will be as comfortable as possible.
The plug of the coil is attached to the control unit with a light click. The plug does not have a fixing thread ring, but it is perfectly and tightly inserted into the socket, so do not worry that you will lose it. The advantage of this design is that the assembly-disassembly of the device is fast, which is especially important in the search in conditions of poor light and cold weather. Next to the plug of the reel, on the left, there is an output to the headphones, it is very convenient for the operator-because the headphones allow not to miss the weak signals from valuable targets and significantly conserve energy elements of the batteries. By the way, the "power " For this detector are two 9-volt batteries of type "Krona ", which allow continuous search for 40 hours without the use of headphones and up to 50 hours with headphones. The batteries are included, so you can start searching almost immediately after purchase!
The device is equipped with a monokatushkoj diameter of 20.5 cm, which has excellent stability in operation, a large depth of search and the possibility of precise identification of the target. This reel allows you to search for both small and large items, accurately determining the location of the target in the ground, which is very important for its digging without damaging the shovel. The reel is completely sealed and the device can safely search the beach and shallow water.
The control unit, whose body is made of high-quality plastics, is fastened on the rod by two bolts. The battery cover is at the back of the unit. On the front panel is placed 7 convenient, touch, easy to read, buttons. The liquid crystal display is as informative as possible and, thanks to its impressive size, is easy to read. When the device is turned on, the operator enters the "all metals " mode, which can be changed if desired, excluding unwanted objects from the search, such as iron and foil, the corresponding scale is displayed at the top of the screen. To do this, use the "Discrimination " keys, which allow you to consistently exclude unwanted objects. To selectively exclude unwanted targets, use the "Notch " button. Buttons "Sensitivity " or "sensitivity " allow the search engine to smoothly change the power emitted by the device signal, finding a compromise between the interference that can be created by electromagnetic fields, soil mineralization, and the depth of the search. Thus, it is always possible to find the optimal value, which allows to maintain the necessary depth of search on all types of soils and to ignore third-party disturbances, such as high-voltage transmission lines.
On the right in the middle of the display is a depth scale, which shows the approximate depth of the target, which is very convenient and again, allows the search engine to dig up the subject without damaging it. At the bottom right is a battery icon, so you can always control the process of battery discharge and change them in time. The middle of the display is rightly reserved for the main indicator-the digital value, the "rating " of the target, the value of which varies from 00 to 99. The higher the value, the greater the conductivity of the target. When searching, it is necessary to compare the two indicators, which are displayed on the display, as an icon of the object, which is highlighted during the finding of a specific target and a numerical value that determines the conductivity of the detected object.
The metal detector is equipped with four tonal system of audible notification of the operator about the found goal, which also allows to judge the nature of the detected goal: low tone will correspond to the target with low conductivity, for example, iron, and High tone-targets of copper, taken as a maximum of conductivity. The device has an important function, such as "Pin Point ", or the ability to pinpoint the location of the target. When the corresponding button is pressed, the search engine hears a beep, which changes the intensity to a large one if the target is in the center of the search coil. In general, the Panel is made very convenient, all the buttons are easy to press with your thumb, the display is perfectly readable even in poor visibility, which is very convenient if you search early in the spring, or late autumn, when the light day is short . I would like to recommend this metal detector to those who are just starting to get involved with the instrument search, he will surely have their liking: FISHER F2-a convenient, clear and easily customizable device with wide possibilities for searching on most types of soils.
