Hi all, new here....

I've a cscope cs3mx and looking to build a small elliptical coil, mainly for getting in the nooks and crannies around the trees up the woods. The stock coil is described as 'isocon' and the search head resembles a polo so I'm assuming it's concentric design. I've not done any probing around yet but if anyone has any experience of this machine or similar it would be great to hear from you.

I'm an electronics engineer as a job, mainly microwave/rf so know problem with some of the skills required.

Cheers,

Paul.

I did have search but perhaps I was being too specific

Hello Paul . I am just starting to work on your question . The ISOCON is a 3 coil configuration and your CS3MX runs at 17 khz . I am thinking it has one TX coil , one RX coil and one bucking coil . You need to take some DC resistance measurement's on each set of your search coil connector pins before your next step .  How many pins is your connector ?


Regards............Eugene
