DeLeón Metal Detector from Tesoro functions as the T.I.D or Target Identification Detector. This means that the detector will tell you exactly what target is being detected. One look at the LCD display will tell you the type of metal it is detecting. For instance, with DeLeón, you can get to know the coin depth, the presence of iron, zinc, and silver, among other aspects.
It is super easy to use; there are no complex configuration settings. You just need to turn on the device and set out on your quest. The faceplate of the product comes with just four controls, namely, Sensitivity, Discriminate, Threshold and a Mode Switch, which further makes it easy to understand and handle for a beginner. If you have used the Tesoro Cortés before, then you would feel more familiar with this one as it uses the same circuitry and offers similar sensitivity and depth.
One of the major differences between Cortés and DeLeón is that the later has a display screen that is one character high and you get a width of eight characters. However, you will get much more information from the Cortés screen, being an advanced model. Apart from detecting metals like copper, iron, silver, relics, coins, etc., it also shows a two-digit target identification number and bar graph.
Some notable features of the DeLeón Metal Detector from Tesoro include:
#1 The coin detection
Starting from the left of the faceplate, the coin depth is the first thing you will notice. The kind of depth that the machine is able to detect is remarkable. It works perfectly fine for the coin depths up to 6 inches, and things like dime, nickel, quarter, penny, iron nails, gold rings are easily detected.
#2 The bar graph for ID detection
The five-segment bar graph is what you will find in the DeLeón right after the coin depth reading. It is followed by the identification number. The bar graph shows various categories for identification purposes. However, it is highly recommended that you use it along with the ID number to get the right information.
#3 The four controls
You will get four controls in this model: Sensitivity, Discriminate, Threshold and a Mode Switch. So, it is basically three knobs and one toggle switch to control this metal detector. The threshold knob is for the light buzzing sound as you near the target. The sensitivity knob controls the stability and depth of the detector. The discriminant knob filters out unwanted targets. The mode switch has three settings: discriminate mode, battery check, and all metal modes.
