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!

All about the Minelab Equinox 800 is collected here (news, tests, comparisons with other devices, different reviews and opinions). Plus, on Knowledgebase pages there is additional information you should know before buying the Minelab Equinox 800. The experience of others will help you save your time and money. Happy hunting to everyone!

  • Shame on you Minelab for selling the public a metal detector that you say is waterproof but will only go 1 inch underwater and still work.

  • Nech?pu, v?dy? m? kabel, tak jak? Bluetooth?

  • That is pretty shady. But hey they only charge $150 bucks for the water proof WIRED headphones lol.

  • Bluetooth operates at 2.4 GHz which is an extremely high frequency.
    At 2.4 GHz, water virtually appears to be a sheet of highly conductive metal and is an effective screen… enough said.

  • Well of course RF on that frequency won’t work under water, Only frequencies that work well under water are VLF frequencies, which is what comes out of the coil, and what Submarines use to communicate. All frequencies around 2.4Ghz do is vibrate water molucules. Don’t believe me, check the back of your microwave oven. Thats how they work.

  • The Deus “water antenna” is not the length of the shaft. The ideal antenna length is 31mm at this frequency. The “water antenna” is a length of co-axial cable, with a 31mm antenna at each end.
