Minelab Equinox: underwater wireless signal test

Do you believe in miracles? Not many deteсtorists know that all wireless technologies are up against difficulties when working underwater. By way of example, in order to transmit a signal from your heel to your head a submersible XP Deus unit should be used with an antenna that has the same length as the shaft itself. However, this doesn’t mean that the signal will be successfully transmitted, especially through the salt water. And how about the Minelab Equinox? This machine has a new-generation Bluetooth function, capable of reaching up to 100 meters. Won’t it also be able to break through the half-your-height water column? Or it will? Here’s a test of the Minelab Equinox’s wireless connectivity that can be achieved underwater. It’s really interesting! Continue reading

Minelab Equinox Coil X-Ray. Is it really the half of machine?

Minelab called their Equinox coils ‘smart’, and basically these ones stand for the half of the detector itself. I need hardly say that such coil will cost a considerable amount, and you shouldn’t be surprised… It’s interesting, of course, what Minelab are saying but the truth can’t be hidden anyway. I just want to ask, “Really, are you serious about that, Minelab?” So let’s take a look at the cool pictures: an x-ray coil for the new Minelab Equinox. Continue reading

Minelab Equinox improvements (shaft). You think it will help?

Metal detector manufacturers don’t give a toss about your problems. Your arm is getting tired too quickly, and you think the problem lies in the shaft? Not a bit of it! It’s because of your arm that is too long, and we didn’t bargain for its being of not the right size. As a matter of fact, it took Garrett many years to supply their machine with the camlocks. And it’s of no consideration that it’s been a long time since the competitors provided their devices with such locks. And it doesn’t really matter that the shaft of the expensive – costing more than $1,000 back at the time – detector wobbles at each sweep. It’s your purchase, isn’t it? So, from now on that’s your funeral! Let’s take a look at a few improvements for the Minelab Equinox 600/800. In your opinion, might it work for this machine? Continue reading

DIY Carbon Minelab Equinox Shaft

The idea of a metal detector initially consisting of a control box only and having the rest of parts of its owner’s own preferences arises more and more often. That’s the way it is going to be in the future – you’ll purchase a control box, shaft and coil separately. Here’s an interesting option of a carbon shaft for the Minelab Equinox 600 and Minelab Equinox 800 machines: made with one’s own hands, easy to assemble, no special tools or skills needed. Not at an ultra low cost but not higher than the carbon itself. Continue reading
