Representing our most significant coin & treasure introduction since the launch of the CTX 3030 in 2012, Minelab is pleased to announce the pending release of our new EQUINOX Series Metal Detectors.

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!

The EQUINOX Series has been designed for the serious coin & treasure enthusiast looking to upgrade to a high performance detector, without the high cost. It’s also suitable for the new detectorist, having several pre-set modes for different detecting locations.  The EQUINOX Series features Minelab’s STATE-OF-THE ART Multi-IQ simultaneous multi-frequency technology and combines fast recovery speed with low-latency wireless audio in a lightweight waterproof platform.

4 Detect Modes (Park, Field, Beach, Gold)
6 Frequency Options (5kHz, 10kHz, 15kHz, 20kHz, 40kHz, Multi)
Bluetooth Headphones and WM 08 Wireless Module Supplied

Minelab Equinox multi-frequency range

The above diagram is intended to be a simplified representation of how different frequencies of operation are better suited to different target types; i.e. low frequencies (e.g. 5kHz) are more responsive to high conductors (e.g. large silver targets) and high frequencies (e.g. 40kHz) are more responsive to low conductors (e.g. small gold nuggets). The EQUINOX 600 offers a choice of 3 single frequencies and the EQUINOX 800 offers the choice of 5 single frequencies. Both models also have simultaneous multi-frequency options that cover a much broader range of targets than any one single frequency can – and they’re different across the Detecting Modes! 

“EQUINOX, with Multi-IQ, has the potential to obsolete all the traditional VLF detectors that enthusiasts have been using for decades.” –Minelab Electronics Pty Ltd.

    Love the Equinox 800! Rob was fast to ship it and a pleasure to deal with. The NOX is great on the wet sand of Southern CA beaches. I found about 7 rings so far and one 14k necklace.

    Rob’s has truly amazing service and easy to deal with. I had not been out in years and sold my White’s machine. I am retiring and will have a lot more spare time and a friend Adam suggested Rob’s. Well am I ever glad I did, Rob was prompt at returning my calls and provided all the info I asked for.

    This is probably the best Multi-use detector out. The Gold setting is basically the same (w/6″ coil) as the GM1000. This was the first VLF detector I bought. Love this thing!

    I spent a bit of time studying various metal detectors. I have been a long time user of Minelab detectors, but I have been out of the fields for almost 20 years. I purchased Andy’s Equinox and CTX-3030 books. Both look to be great detectors. I settled on the Equinox 800 based on a lot of reading of both books and online reviews. Rob’s took good care and is a great source of valuable information. Shipping was quick and the box was well secured and packed. I will always purchase from Rob’s, as I feel it is good to keep my hard-earned dollars to small business and operations rather than to big, corporate conglomerates. BTY, please avoid purchasing detecting tools and materials from those large, WWW internet stores. The reason being is there are often counterfeit products being sold on those website and without any factory warrantee. Thanks for reading!

    Transportable, very lightweight, very fast processing ability, durable and waterproof this is my travel detector. It’s so lightweight it feels like a toy but with over a year using it daily I can tell you it’s robust! At this price point the pocket change you find will pay it off! Rob’s got the best service around so please don’t hesitate. I’ve been buying from Rob for over 20 years he is the real deal.
