“EQUINOX GOLD BABY!!! Derek and I were testing the EQUINOX prototype yesterday, on another Victorian dump field over on the East side of Scotland. The field was very contaminated and busy with lead, scrap, iron, etc.

We managed a few nice finds and one special 22ct gold coin from the reign of Queen Victoria, dated 1849 – 168 years old!!. It was a great signal at around 6-8 inches and one you would dig all day long. We were detecting next to a Roman camp and quite possibly unearthed a broken Roman cast bell, could be medieval though and one or two other cool artefacts”       

 – Sharon McLennan  


User Interface

The clear LCD features large Target ID numbers so you can see your target ID at a glance. All of the information you need when detecting is right there in front of you.

Detect Modes and operating frequency can be instantly changed at the push of a button for a dynamic and uninterrupted detecting experience.

Using the EQUINOX 600 user interface, you can:

  • Change the Detect Mode, Frequency and Sensitivity on the go.
  • Create your own notch discrimination patterns to ignore unwanted targets.
  • Activate All-Metal mode to temporarily disable the current discrimination pattern.
  • Activate Pinpoint mode to zero-in on a promising target so that you know exactly where to dig.
  • Adjust an array of essential and advanced detecting functions including Noise Cancel, Ground Balance, Volume Adjust, Threshold Level, Target Tone, Accept / Reject and Recovery Speed.
  • View the status of your battery and wireless audio device connections.

Plus more!

On a recent trip to England:

EQUINOX is a remarkable detector! I detected a medieval fair site littered with iron and coke [hot rocks] that had been hunted to death 6 weeks before I arrived. The number of targets recovered was impressive including, Rose farthings, trade tokens, buttons, fleur-de-lis mount, brass nails and bits of lead / brass scrap.

 – Jeff Lutz 



Low frequencies give more depth on large targets, and high frequencies are usually more sensitive to small targets.

With EQUINOX you can operate across the full spectrum of frequencies simultaneously for maximum results.

    First I want to thank Rob and his wife for being great business people. They have gone out of their way to help me out with battery replacements and always answer my phone calls personally and quickly.

    I have owned many detectors in my lifetime and recently I sold several because the Equinox 600 that I purchased from Rob really did make them completely obsolete. I have never had a detector with so much power and so many features behave so well in the extremely hot dirt and bad EMI conditions in my area. Every other detector including some very new models have struggled to quiet down enough to detect at depths of over 5″ here. The Equinox has left me wishing for a backhoe several times. I simply can’t reach some of the targets. I also can’t believe how I only have to move the coil a couple of inches over a target in order to get a clean “dig it” signal that is totally separated from the naturally occurring iron that surrounds most non-ferrous targets here. The Equinox is not too complicated to learn if you just go slow and start in Park 1 for the first few hunts. The online manual and all of the supporting YouTube videos are really helpful too. My 600 can easily detect small targets including .5 gram gold nuggets at over 2 inches in devil dirt using Field 2. It has found many dollars worth of clad, 2 gold and 2 silver rings in a little over 40 hours of detecting time. I see an 800 in my future too. Thanks Rob!
