This control can be used to ignore various unwanted metal objects. Excalibur detectors use Minelab’s unique Broad Band Spectrum (BBS) technology, which enables them to transmit automatically at 17 individual frequencies at the same time. Thing is the components that comprise the machine are not and therefore there is a limit in the depth they can withstand underwater.
Continue to practice the various modes and controls passing objects at various distances over the coil. The fourth condition might mean you’ll have to try a different beach, but turning down the sensitivity can help a great deal. That can mean a lot if you took the day to drive somewhere you can’t easily return. If I were going to a place like that, such as a special one-time-only dig, I wouldn’t hesitate to grab the Tiger Shark. Also, remove the skid plate and wash the sand away from the coil as this sand will wear the coil and lead to coil failure.
Cnmon Problems Encountered 1. Nolsy when swinging the detector May be a loose connector or cable not tightly wound around the shaft. ‘tighten the cable on the shaft and also connector. 2. Starts with a loud noise when first turned on and then fades away to nothing. The lack of coins from the ocean field test was not because the detector couldn’t handle it, but because the conditions weren’t right. Max Depth: 7 inches on US quarter Overall Rating Durability Ease of Use Would you recommend this to a new user? No, not really. Keeping the BBS coil in contact with the ground will increase detection depth and response to small objects. 22. Page 22 The Minelab Excalibur Family Pinpointing with the Excalibur When the approximate location of the target has been determined, move the coil slowly over the target. Minelab’s unique Broad Band Spectrum (BBS) technology, combined with superior ground rejecting technology, makes the Excalibur II the ideal underwater machine.
