Hi Barry, the AD797 is a much better chip compared to 5534  as it has a lower noise floor at low frequencies, there are even better chips around that make the 10hz corner frequency noise of an AD797 look bad.

General Discussion / Re: Battery for a GP series detector

Hi Wes, It is not a good idea as a fully charged GPX is 8.4 and safety cut out on a GP is around 7.8-8 volts.

It can pop the input soft start Fet and it takes out some of the circuit tracks as well.

Watch this space, no one else can upgrade the F1A4 detectors to our new specifications... These are great for finding Quartz Reef Gold.

We have been busy. Have a series of 7 new upgrades coming out that will make these old detectors some of the deepest detectors available if not the deepest for large Gold and Treasure.

Hi Red,  We can make a battery tester with cable connect for the SD GP GPX... Just redoing all the adds.

Hi Red, We are sending most of these to our customers over in Africa, I have some more performance enhancing items under way...Its flat out R&D here.

Hi Red, Im not sure if Chris is making coils for the ATX, good timing, i was just cleaning out the spammers..

After testing the input stages on various detector I have found that many of the AD797 opamps with a spec sheet indication of 25mv DC offset is not the case when measured in some detectors.
Offset voltages in excess of 100mv are quite common.  Adding a potentiometer and trimming the Offset after 15 minutes run time to DC makes for a much more stable and quieter detector. As the first stages are DC coupled, reducing the Offset voltage makes for a much more behaved quieter detector. Frequency compensation can also be carried out to reduce Radio Frequency interference without degrading the low frequency slew rate or settling time of the opamp. 

Hot weather = Less Nuggets detected.
Cold Weather = More Nuggets detected.
Wet Ground = Less Nuggets detected.
Dry Ground = More Nuggets detected.
Night Time  = More Nuggets detected
Day Time   = Less Nuggets detected.

Why?   Who knows the answers?

I think Shep has the early mods, why go and buy a very expensive new detector when the older ones can be made to go deeper and run more stable.....Soon I will putting out another lot of new mods that will blow everyone away... Just got to keep it under wraps at the moment.. Already I have had numerous hack attempts from France, USA and China... All designs now are on non net connected computers, even paper and pen on the crucial design aspects..

Hi Red, these projects take longer than anticipated, but when it's ready you'll be the first to know.

Hi Red, yes it it will but the most benefit will be for the GP Extreme onwards.

Not sure yet,  Just got to do the finishing touches..

They are printing plenty of my articles,   even better ones to come.
