Multi-IQ Technology means more finds.


A little bit about how metal detectors use different frequencies to gain the best depth and sensitivity depending on the target.

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

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


* 20 kHz and 40 kHz are not available as single operating frequencies in EQUINOX 600. The Multi-IQ frequency range shown applies to both EQUINOX 600 and 800. This diagram is representative only. Actual sensitivity levels will depend upon target types and sizes, ground conditions and detector settings.

Other Technologies

EQUINOX 800 offers 5 frequencies of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 40 kHz, giving a greater range of customization depending on type of targets.
