coil coupled operation metal

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The metal detector shown here may well represent a new genre. At any rate, after some exposure, it is regarded as such by those who have seen it. It is based on a standard transformer coupled oscillator(TCO) - hence the name Coil Coupled Operation (CCO) Metal Detector. Although requiring a BFO (in this case provided by a Medium Wave radio), it dif

fers from a typical BFO detector in that its performance far outstrips that of BFO. Also, unlike BFO, it is dependent on the balance of two coils to boostsensitivity. It also differs from IB, in that its Rx section is an active, rather than passive, component of the oscillator. Further, unlike IB, the design does not require critical placement of thecoils. As with both BFO and IB, the design provides discrimination. Experiments with different embodiments of the idea have shown that it has the potential to match the best of IB. Happy hunting!
