The EQUINOX Series is the all-terrain multi-purpose detector that obsoletes all single frequency VLF detectors. Equally adaptable for all target types and ground conditions… just select your detecting location and go!
Multi-IQ multi-frequency technology The first metal detector that has Multi-IQ multi-frequency technology with which the detector works simultaneously on all frequencies. The Equinox 800 has a 5kHz, a 10 kHz search frequency, a 15 kHz search frequency, a 20 KHz and a 40 kHz search frequency. You can choose to search on a single frequency or on multi-IQ. The Equinox 800 searches for all frequencies at the same time. The advantage of a low 5 kHz frequency is that the detector has a larger depth range and the advantage of a 40 kHz search frequency is that the detector is more sensitive to small parts and gold (nuggets). The Multi-IQ combines the best of all five frequencies!
The detectors of the Vanquish series, together with those of the Equinox series, are the only detectors in the world that have Multi-IQ technology. With this revolutionary new technology, you have the combined performance of multiple detectors in one – they all work for you at the same time! Just switch it on and get started.
What does Multi-IQ mean?
Multi-IQ means that the detector searches on several frequencies at the same time. Where other detectors only have a single search frequency (e.g. 14 kHz), the Equinox offers multi-frequency technology and searches on all frequencies between 5 to 40 kHz simultaneously! The advantage of this is that a low search frequency provides much greater depth performance than high frequency detectors, now combined with the advantages of high frequencies, which makes detectors much better able to detect gold and small parts than low frequency detectors.
If you have a detector with a search frequency of 5 kHz, you will probably be able to find larger objects very deep, but you will often miss smaller pieces of gold. If you have a detector with a search frequency of 40 kHz, you will be able to find the smallest gold chain, gold nuggets and earrings very well, but with less depth power; and therefore miss the larger, lower-lying objects again. As the Equinox 800 searches on all these frequencies simultaneously, you will never miss any more objects and you will always have optimal depth performance!
Completely waterproof up to 3 meters under water, suitable for fresh and salt water, also carefree probing in the rain.
The Equinox 800 has 4 search modes. A search mode for parks, one for fields, one for beach and one for gold.
The reaction speed of the Equinox detector is extremely fast. This is very important to see if there are several objects next to each other. You never miss an object again! The recognition and separation of the different types of metal is perfect!
