The Tesoro DeLeon is a Target Identification Detector or T.I.D. The DeLeón is designed as an easy to use, turn-on-and-go detector. The faceplate has only four controls: Sensitivity, Discriminate, Threshold and a Mode Switch. It uses the same circuitry as the Cortés, so you can expect the same depth and sensitivity from the Tesoro DeLeon that the Cortés is well known for.
The DeLeón’s display screen is one character high by eight characters wide. It is larger and easier to read than the Cortés display but does not carry as much information. Starting from left to right on the faceplate, you will see that the DeLeón has a Coin Depth reading, a five segment bar graph and a two-digit Target ID Number. The bar graph shows several categories for ID purposes, but we recommend that it be used with the ID Number for the most accurate information.
