The Minelab Equinox 800 is rugged, lightweight and fully submersible making it the perfect metal detector for detecting at the beach, in rivers and around lakeshores. 


Minelab’s Multi-IQ technology combines the power of multiple detectors into one sleek unit to ensure that nothing goes undiscovered. Metal detectors used to work on single frequencies which restricted which types of targets a detector could find. Multi-IQ is a multi-frequency detection engine that allows the Equinox to cut through salty, trashy and mineralized soil to deliver stable detection and ID of targets through the full detection depth. 

Minelab Equinox 800 Metal Detector includes the following items. 

  • The EQUINOX 800 multi-frequency metal detector with the Multi-IQ detection engine
  • Standard Coil: 11-inch double-D smart coil that is waterproof to 10 feet
  • Detection Coil Cover / Skidplate
  • Minelab wireless Bluetooth aptX low latency headphones with carry case

Minelab has become the metal detector of choice for serious relic and treasure hunters. The Equinox 800 is a robust, fully submersible, lightweight detector offering Minelab’s Multi-IQ detection engine. Multi-IQ revolutionized metal detectors by combining the search capabilities of multiple detectors into one. Multi-IQ works by utilizing multiple detection frequencies at the same time to identify targets in salty, mineralized or trashy soil. No more carrying multiple detectors or wondering what you missed because your detector only focuses on one target type. The Equinox 800 is ideal for detecting on beaches, along river banks, lake shores or out in the field.

The Equinox performs extremely well in all environments. The Equinox can be submerged in up to 10 feet of water and offers great detection even in salt water. Multi-IQ technology allows you to identify targets with confidence so you spend less time digging trash and more time digging treasure.

High Plains Prospectors offers all the gear you need for your next metal detecting adventure including coil covers, search coils, carbon fiber shafts, finds bags, sand scoops, shovels, and books.

Once you have an Equinox 800, you’ll find that old ground that has been searched for years can hold new treasures which no one has been able to detect before.


    The Minelab Equinox 800 redefines the all-purpose metal detector for serious detectorists. The Equinox is adaptable for all ground types and all target types. The Equinox is a formidable gold detector with a specific “gold mode” to help you find those elusive nuggets.

    With the added functionality of gold mode, high frequency 20/40 kHz., wireless audio accessories and advanced settings, the EQUINOX 800 offers extra versatility.

    User Interface:

    The Equinox 800 features an easy-to-read LCD display which clearly identifies target ID numbers in large print. The included low-glare screen protector keeps the glare off the screen so all the information you need is right in front of you.

    Detection 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:

    • Quickly change the detection mode, detection frequency and detection sensitivity with the press of a button
    • Create custom 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
    • Customize 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

    "The Minelab EQUINOX is truly in a league of its own. In the short time I've been operating this machine, I've recovered deep coins and artifacts from iron infested sites that other machines simply cannot detect."
