Fast recovery speed with accurate Target ID ensures you won’t miss any valuable targets amongst the trash.


Advanced Settings

Gain even more control of your detector audio with Advanced Settings; you decide how much target information you hear.


Gold Detecting Mode

Gold Mode operates the high single frequencies of either 20 kHz or 40 kHz to detect gold nuggets in mineralised soils.


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 800 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.
  • Customise Advanced Settings to change the way detections are heard, by selecting the number, pitch, and volume of your detection signals.
  • View the status of your battery and wireless audio device connections.


Multi IQ

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.
