The Sun Ray Meters...

Had forgotten about the Sun Ray DTI II meter until the other day going through a box of detector parts searching for something else, Several years ago converted my old Sovereign into a waterproof detector going meter less so wasn't using a meter anymore with the old Sovereign.

Hooked up to my GT and she still works! Brought back memories of using the 180 meter, Seems like yesterday.

Does anyone know the difference between the Sun Ray DTI II and DTI III or was there ever a DTI III?, Can't remember been away from using a Sov meter too long wasn't until recently picked up a GT for a Patriot meter.

Any information greatly appreciated.

Hi Paul,

Good to see you are using a Sovereign again and you are using the best model too.
On the DTI 2 there were actually 2 different one, the first one had a nylon calibration control and many had a problem with them as it was easy to turn them too far and break them and had to be sent in and had the metal ones put on. The second one came with the metal one and never heard of any problem with them at all. The last DTI meter Sun Ray made was the DTI 3 which had the back light in it and the mount was a bit different as if I remember right sat back toward the operator and was metal instead of the fiberglass or what ever it was. The DTI 3 had a button you push to turn the light on and would say on for 90 seconds and then it would go off to save the 9 volt battery that was mounted inside the meter and got to easy when it needed changed. The light would not work if the detector was off as it had to be on for the switch to work to turn it on. Rick

The Sun Ray and the Minelab meter used the battery of the detector control box for power and don't use a extra battery for the meter, but the DTI 3 of Sun Ray uses a battery for the back light. I was told that the first one made by Sun Ray may have had a battery in it, but never seen one myself since 1996 when I first started using a Sovereign.
