Rutus Atrex Metal Detector
A metal detector where you can determine how the metal detector should work. If you are a beginner or you like "turn on and go" - the recommended mode is "Basic". If you want to set up the Rutus Atrex yourself, the recommended mode is "Advanced". The Atrex comes standard with "Advanced" software, "Basic" can be downloaded via the website and can be adjusted yourself thanks to the built-in WiFi module.
These are the characteristics of the Rutus Atrex:
The first thing that makes the Atrex unique is the availability of two kinds of software that the user can change himself in an innovative way.
"Basic" for those looking for an easy-to-use detector and "Advance" for professionals among us who want to tune every function of interest. To perform updates or adjustments, only a Wifi connection and a web browser is sufficient, and full batteries in your Atrex of course. You can do updates and adjustments in the machine by means of your laptop, but even from your mobile phone, for example in the field! This technique will ensure that the development of the Rutus software is guaranteed for the future, Rutus innovativeness, as we are used to from Rutus!
The second important and innovative development is the Multifilter
In locations where the soil is highly mineralized, this often causes problems such as extreme disturbances, and searching in that location is a challenge. For this problem, Rutus pulls out an 'Ace'. The Multifilter is an algorithm that runs in the background. If a small non-ferrous metal object is detected in 'clean' soil, in other words there is no problem with the soil type, then this function is active in the background and the Atrex will work like most detectors, on the classic way. The multifilter measures the soil values and archives the last tens of milliseconds. When the measured signal is greater than the target's signal, the Atrex will reconstruct the values (unbelievably fast) and display a constructed ID value based on the target and mineralization. The positive effect of this added functionality, detecting non-ferrous metal objects in highly mineralized soils, increases very noticeably!
The third new feature is the ability to neutralize the effects of (salt) water.
Multi-simultaneous frequency makes it much easier to distinguish between minerals and objects. Neutralization does not mean "masking" the problem as many other brands of detectors do. Electrically conductive water (salt water) has different properties than metallic objects. During the development and simulation of this new functionality of the water and with different (multi-simultaneous) frequencies, it turned out that it is easy to distinguish between the measured value of (salt) water and the object. With the Atrex metal detector you can search on wet (salt) beaches, peat areas, clay soils, sandy soils, you name it!
A fourth, extremely innovative, function is the interference filter.
Who does not know it; are you in the field and there is electromagnetic interference around you…searching is almost impossible, you try to change some settings but it doesn't help….it drives you completely mad. The Atrex measures the environmental interference and contains a screen where you can see which frequencies cause the most interference. You select the frequency where there is the least interference…and the interference is gone or greatly reduced. How simple can it be, amazing!
The fifth welcome addition is that the Altrex has a color screen.
The color screen and electronics are also virtually insensitive to the effects of low temperature, and will not slow down. (We have seen that differently with other models/brands when it is around freezing, for example!)
The Atrex contains all the functions we are used to from the Alter 71, but also so much more!

Choice of 2 different search drives:
The black 28 cm search disc is slightly lighter in weight than the white 29 cm search disc,
The black search disk is more suitable for 'all-round' purposes, the white disk is slightly more stable.
