The Multi-IQ Advantage

 Why Minelab Multi-IQ? Because with Minelab’s revolutionary Multi-IQ technology, you’ve got the combined power of multiple detectors in one — all working for you at the same time. Nothing goes undiscovered and no terrain is off limits. Silver, relics or jewellery. Park, field, or beach. Unearth the power of EQUINOX powered by Multi-IQ.


 With IP68 waterproof capability to 5 m (16 ft), take EQUINOX anywhere and own the ground beneath your feet.


 Recovery Speed and Iron Bias controls how your detector responds to multiple signals: from minimising your chances of digging iron to sniffing out gold and treasures hiding within the trashiest ground and everything in between.



Comprising lightweight 3-piece carbon-fibre shafts, EQUINOX 700 weighs only 1.2 kg (2.8 lb) and packs down to a mere 61 cm (24 in) — throw it in your backpack, and you’re all set


Whether you’re swinging in the forest or snorkelling at the beach, EQUINOX 700® finds treasure that other detectors miss.


With multiple tone audio options, the sound of treasure has never been clearer — EQUINOX’s superior audio means you’ll not only ‘hear’ if a target is trash or treasure but you’ll also be able to gauge its size and depth simply by listening.


The EQUINOX Multi-IQ engine delivers Stable IDs for even the deepest targets. Depend on solid, stable information to tell you whether to dig in or move on — when you’ve got a target, switch to Pinpoint Mode to zero-in further.


For those with a specific goal in mind, EQUINOX® delivers total control and the power to choose from four single frequencies: 4/5/10/15 kHz.


The daylight may have ended, but that doesn’t mean your hunt has to — with Control Pod Flashlight, Red Backlight Display, Backlit Keypad, and Handgrip Vibration you can power on long after the sun has gone.


Enjoy the crystal-clear audio with lightning-fast Low Latency Wireless Headphones and In-Built Speaker (Included), or Wired Headphones and Waterproof Headphones (Accessories).
