01 - How does the Deepmax work

Find Gold and Silver Treasures up to 40 Feet Deep !

Lorenz Deepmax - X5 and Deepmax - X6 professional series detectors are used to detect single coins, buried caches, and hidden gold and silver treasures at incredible depths.

  • Lorenz deep searching metal detectors are easy to use. After setting a few controls to the factory recommended settings you then simply press the ground balance button with the search coil in the air. After proper ground balance is achieved you set the threshold level and start scanning.

Lorenz X series detectors ignores practically all types of ground minerals.

  • Both Lorenz Pulse induction detectors are capable of detecting coins, gold, silver, brass, bronze and larger targets to extreme depths. Lorenz ( deep ) metal detectors are pulse intermittent transmission types. This Deepmax signal is amplified and conditioned to drive the detection signal deep into all soils ! A highly accurate conductivity meter reading system helps identify the type of metal found. With Lorenz, deep treasure can now be found beyond the depths of standard metal detectors! Deepmax - X6 also comes with a built - in 3D data logger and additional GPS module with USB storage media for the ultimate Treasure hunting package !

The Lorenz Deepmax X5 / X6 is based on the nonmotion; Pulse GBS ( Pulse Ground Balancing System ).

  • Short & intensive magnetic pulses are emitted by means of a search coil first.
  • Those magnetic pulses produce eddy currents in conducting materials like metal objects for example.
  • These eddy currents will be kept in a metal object and will die away after the magnetic pulse emitted by the search coil has turned off.
  • This is the reason why it is possible to detect those eddy currents during the time delayed receiving phase by means of the same search coil which now acts as a receiving coil.
  • A electronic circuitry is necessary to detect those tiny voltage changes and has to separate that particular signal from interference also received.
  • The signal has to be amplified to drive a voltage controlled oscillator ( VCO ), which emits an audible signal either by headphones or built - in loudspeaker when a metal is in the near of the field of the coil

Eddy currents produced in a metal object by means of a pulsed primary field, will die away differently depending on the conductivity of the metal object.

  • The classification circuit therefore gives a visual time delay reading for the eddy currents received over a certain period of time. In addition a ferrous / non - ferrous indication for every metal being detected is working when a double D coil is in use. This gives further information on the probable kind of metal being located as well as the audio sound emitted, which makes it easy to predetermine the exact place and the size of the buried metal object.

The Pulse GBS principle has got the advantage of using large diameter coils and high transmitting power.

  • This is especially necessary when searching at depth.Frame mounted cable coils of different size and shape can be connected to the Lorenz Deppmax - X5 / X6 without any adjustments.


A special adaptation circuit has been added to the Detector to suit with different coil systems automatically.

  • This ensures extreme depth capabilities with any coil connected. When enlarging the search coil diameter the sensitivity to bigger objects will also rise. At the same time smaller objects will be located less sensitive. This is particularly desirable when locating large objects while ignoring small bits. Large coils offer very high detection ranges. Even in difficult soils where magnetic iron oxides are present the Lornez Deepmax - X5 / X6 will offer extreme depth capabilities for both ferrous and non - ferrous metal objects when the Ground Balancing System is in use. Other systems often suffer from ground effects which reduce the depth range in the ground.

The Lornez Deepmax - X5 / X6 will be able to locate objects at almost the same depths either in most types of ground or " in air tests ".

  • The high sensitivity of the Lornez Deepmax - X5 / X6 to non - ferrous metal objects like gold, silver and copper together with the new target analysis make this detector an outstanding device for many different locating purposes.
  • The Lorenz Deepmax - X5 / X6 was developed to provide a number of features including high sensitivity and stability together with easy operation.
  • The amount of controls was therefore reduced and a calibration of the Detector to our factory settings was also made to guarantee best results in the field.

Signal intensity :  Using Lorenz - Deepmax 40" x 40"  ( 1m x 1m ) Frame Coil


The Lorenz Deepmax - X5 / X6 was developed for professional search and locating applications.

  • A variety of search coils can be connected to this metal detector. Large areas can be detected effectively especially with frame coils. Saltwater, most types of ground or temperature changes will only slightly affect the detection range of the Lorenz Deepmax - X5 / X6. It is possible to eliminate some unwanted objects like nails and foils or to identify them as being small unwanted objects while searching for bigger and deeper objects. In conjunction with small coils the Lorenz Deepmax - X5 / X6 is a great tool when searching for small objects deep in the ground.
