Excalibur Ii Minelab Metal Detector
- BBS multiple frequency technology (1.5kHz – 25.5kHz).
- RCB amplifies weak target signals inside the coil, reducing noise and boosting faint, deep objects.
- High Visibility (Hi-Vis) fluorescent bodywork.
- Slimline coil (8” or 10” option) for reduced weight and improved balance.
- NiMH Rechargeable battery pack for operation up to 12 hours.
- Hi-Vis Skid plate.
- Side-mount shaft for shallow and surf-wading (available as an optional accessory).
Minelab’s unique (BBS) technology, combined with superior ground rejecting technology, makes the Excalibur II the ideal underwater machine. The unique design of the Minelab Excalibur II allows you to use it as effectively in or out of the water - this amphibious machine can move seamlessly from land, beach and wet sand conditions to underwater depths of up to 200ft (66m).
Thanks to a unique method of ground cancelling never again will you get false signals from detecting in salt water. Enjoy the simple yet effective discrimination and be surprised at the sensitivity and depth you uncover targets from.
Whether you are a long time diver or a casual beachcomber the Excalibur II is unbeatable for working the beach, wading in the shallows or diving a wreck at 200 feet for treasures.
- Robust design - go detecting anywhere!
Scuba dive, wade in the surf and use on land with high visibility features, custom piezo headphones, plus interchangeable land and dive shafts. Side-mount and hip-mount accessory options are also available to suit your detecting preferences.
- Classic detecting simplicity
All settings can be seen at a glance and easily adjusted using large highly visible knobs and switches.
- Find more treasure, dig less junk!
Accurate Tone ID allows you to hear and identify good targets. Variable discrimination can be used to reject unwanted targets.
- Auto and Manual Sensitivity
With Auto Sensitivity, the detector measures signal noise and automatically adjusts for stable operation. Manual Sensitivity is an alternate option for experienced users.
- BBS and RCB technologies
BBS uses multiple simultaneous frequencies to find all size and depth targets with every sweep. BBS reduces false signals from ground minerals, making it ideal for general and beach detecting. RCB amplifies weak target signals inside the coil to find faint and deep targets.
|BBS (Broad Band Spectrum) simultaneously transmits, receives and analyses a broad band of multiple frequencies to deliver substantial detection depth, high sensitivity and accurate discrimination for a wide range of target types. This broad band of frequencies provides the detector’s electronics with more information about a target and the surrounding environment than is possible with single frequency technologies. The detector carries out advanced signal processing of these frequencies resulting in improved target identification accuracy and increased depth. This process also significantly reduces false signals from ground minerals, even in harsh and variable conditions, such as salt water beaches.|
Find Different Target Types & Sizes with Every Sweep
Generally, high transmit frequencies are more sensitive to small targets and low transmit frequencies give more depth on large deep targets. BBS simultaneously transmits and analyses a broad band of multiple frequencies from 1.5 kHz to 25.5 kHz and is therefore sensitive to both small and large deep targets at the same time. This means you only need to cover the ground once, allowing you to find more treasure.
In-Coil Signal Booster
circuitry greatly amplifies weak target signals, from small and deep targets, inside the search coil, where the signals are received. This has three main advantages over standard techniques of amplification inside the control box:
Accurate Multi-Channel Signal Conversion
BBS analyses multiple signal channels through a technique called multiplexing (MUX). These signals are compared to a digital reference (Vref. and DAC). The end result is high resolution accurate target signals that can be identified by the detector’s microcontroller (MCU). This analogue-to-digital conversion technique allows BBS to separate ground signals from target signals, achieving great depth and stability in difficult conditions.
