BLISSTOOL LTC48X Metal Detector
BLISSTOOL LTC48X is a modern professional metal detector, designed to be used on any type of terrains, including highly mineralized terrains, terrains with a high content of ore and highly contaminated terrains. Has perfect depth and discrimination and is outstanding for its high quality, easy user’s adjustment and minimal maintenance need. This makes it equally suitable for beginners and experienced searchers.
Represents extended and improved version of the model BLISSTOOL LTC48, so that entirely replaces and supplemented it.
It is made of high quality electronics and components such as light and robust detachable carrier construction made of aluminum and carbon, light and robust ABS boxes, and 28cm (11") DD waterproof search coil. They provide its consistent performance regardless of temperature changes of the environment and durability lined with 3 year worldwide warranty.
Available in two versions: a standard version and version adapted for heavy field conditions. Each of them is available in three modifications with rechargeable NiMH batteries in complete with automatic battery charger, and in one modification with alkaline disposable batteries. There are and two options for configuration of the battery: Solid package or De-mountable package. These choices ensure that cost-beneficial option in accordance with customer preferences.
Has high detection speed and high recovery speed. This ensures its stability regardless of the speed of search and
allows the efficient detection of deeper objects located near to the iron.
It features manual and automatic ground balance mode, as in automatic mode is available additional switch with 3 auto ground zones for
soils with low, medium and high mineralization. These zones make use of the metal detector easily and effectively.
It discrimination contains 3 separate potentiometers (DISCR LEVEL, DISCR WIDTH и DISCR DEPTH) which allowing controlling of: detection/rejection level of iron, tin-foil and low-grade non-ferrous metals (usually pollutants); the width (range) of the discrimination area; and: the depth of discrimination. This provides more opportunities about the setting in contaminated areas, areas with hot rocks and mineralized areas, and are a prerequisite for even better results.
Has adjustable audio threshold, which allowing set its behavior to each particular area and fine tuning of its sensitivity.
Its audio discrimination, thanks to the perfect human abilities through their hearing to perceive and analyze in detail the sound signals, is the ideal solution for instant detection, analysis and recognition even and of the weakest signals by deeply buried objects.
As a concept, BLISSTOOL LTC48X is designed:
- to have excellent depth of detection in all conditions. This is leading to him!;
- to be used on any type of terrains;
- to successfully detect coin placed into ceramics;
- to successfully detect coins in highly mineralized terrains;
- to have good depth of detection, not only to copper but also to silver and gold objects;
- to have high detection speed and high recovery speed and at the same time to have good or at least satisfactory stability!
BLISSTOOL LTC48X is available in two versions: version 1 (LTC48X v1) and version 2 (LTC48X v2).
On the front panel of the metal detector both versions are labeled LTC48X, but on the box with the electronics,
additionally marked is the exact version of the metal detector.
LTC48X v1 is the standard version, LTC48X v2 is a version specially adapted for heavy field conditions.
LTC48X v1 differs from LTC48X v2 on this that LTC48X v2 is optimized to work on:
- highly contaminated terrains;
- highly mineralized terrains;
- terrains with a high content of ore.
Of the above described terrains, LTC48X v1 also works, but LTC48X v2 is additional optimized for such terrains.
For this purpose, compared with LTC48X v1, LTC48X v2 contain the following optimizations:
 Discrimination optimized for highly contaminated with iron, steel and other ancient and contemporary pollutants terrains:
- improved rejection of small heavily corroded iron and steel, small pieces of wire, heavily corroded pieces of sheet metal, small iron nails and steel nails, tack, slag and other ancient and contemporary pollutants;
- increased range of the discrimination level set by potentiometer DISCR LEVEL.
 Behavior optimized for working on highly mineralized terrains and terrains with a high content of ore. The ground and ground-specific background of such terrains, which makes the detector "noisy", are ignored in a better extent.
The depth of detection is theoretically better in LTC48X v1, but in practice with both versions are achieved excellent results. It which must be borne in mind, is that in LTC48X v2 because has increasing range of discrimination by potentiometer DISCR LEVEL, should not be set higher than the necessary level of discrimination. Otherwise, will be losing some of the maximum possible depth of detection! In LTC48X v1, in discrimination mode, of most terrains of practice may safely to work at levels of 6 to 10 of potentiometer DISCR LEVEL. In LTC48X v2, in discrimination mode, the optimum levels of potentiometer DISCR LEVEL are from level 4 to about level 6, and potentiometer DISCR WIDTH usually not used (is set at level NORM).
Which version is right for you to judge yourself according to your specific needs. LTC48X v1 has a maximum depth of detection, but LTC48X v2 works better of highly contaminated terrains.
All other features are the same for both versions.
Both versions of BLISSTOOL LTC48X are offered with 4 different options for power (capacity and type of the battery, battery charger):
1/ Rechargeable battery NiMH 12V, 2500mAh (10х1.2V, GP NiMH) and automatic battery charger 12V, 250mA (Working with a single charge:
up to 50 working hours; Long battery life: approximately 500 cycles of charge-discharge; Battery weight: 330 grams.);
2/ Rechargeable battery NiMH 12V, 2200mAh, Low Self Discharge (10х1.2V, TY NiMH LSD) and automatic battery charger 12V, 250mA (Working with a single charge: up to 45 working hours; Long battery life: approximately 500 cycles of charge-discharge; Battery weight: 315 grams; Low Self Discharge is a new technology which ensures low self-discharge of the battery even with prolonged stay.);
3/ Rechargeable battery NiMH 12V, 1300mAh (10х1.2V, GP NiMH) and automatic battery charger 12V, 130mA (Working with a single charge:
up to 25 working hours; Long battery life: approximately 500 cycles of charge-discharge; Battery weight: 250 grams.);
4/ Alkaline battery 15V (10х1.5V, GP Ultra Alkaline) for disposable (Working with one set of elements: up to 50 working hours; Battery weight: 250 grams; Can be upgraded to NiMH modification, through additional purchases and adding thereto a NiMH battery and battery charger.);
and with two options for configuration of the battery:
1/ Solid package. It consists 10 spot welded elements 1.2V AA (R6). This option provides greater durability of the battery and need minimal maintenance. Available only for versions with NiMH battery;
2/ De-mountable package. It consists 10 elements 1.2V AA (R6) put in battery holder for 10 elements AA (R6). This option allows easy replacement of any defective element or replacement of low elements with full elements in field conditions. Available for versions with NiMH battery and for version with Alkaline battery.
All other features are the same for all modifications. Furthermore, the modifications with rechargeable NiMH battery can work and
with an alkaline battery, and vice versa, the modification with alkaline battery can work with rechargeable NiMH battery.
