Minelab Vanquish 540 metal detector

The Vanquish 540 is the perfect device for beginners and advanced users. This detector is equipped as standard with Multi-IQ technology, waterproof V12 coil with coil protection, pinpoint function, all metal quick access button, red display lighting, built-in wireless module (Bluetooth) and volume control. It has 5 search modes: All Metals, Relics, Jewelry, Coins and Custom, and offers even more setting options than the Vanquish 440. The compact and lightweight Vanquish 540 is just as easy to use and powerful and delivers results - no matter where the hunt leads you.

Why Multi-IQ?
The detectors of the Vanquish series, together with those of the Equinox series, are the only detectors in the world that have Multi-IQ technology. With this revolutionary new technology, you have the combined performance of multiple detectors in one - they all work for you at the same time! Just switch it on and get started.

What does Multi-IQ mean?
Multi-IQ means that the detector searches on several frequencies at the same time. Where other detectors only have a single search frequency (e.g. 14 kHz), the Vanquish offers multi-frequency technology and searches on all frequencies between 5 to 40 kHz simultaneously! The advantage of this is that a low search frequency provides much greater depth performance than high frequency detectors, now combined with the advantages of high frequencies, which makes detectors much better able to detect gold and small parts than low frequency detectors.

An example:
If you have a detector with a search frequency of 5 kHz, you will probably be able to find larger objects very deep, but you will often miss smaller pieces of gold. If you have a detector with a search frequency of 40 kHz, you will be able to find the smallest gold chain, gold nuggets and earrings very well, but with less depth power; and therefore miss the larger, lower-lying objects again. As the Vanquish searches on all these frequencies simultaneously, you will never miss any more objects and you will always have optimal depth performance!

All-Terrain (all ground conditions)
Another advantage of this Multi-IQ technology is that, unlike most other detectors in this price range, you can use the Vanquish for almost all soil types! Even for mineralized soils. The Vanquish offers a very stable effect on the beach. The Multi-IQ can even filter out the salt minerals completely! Nothing remains undiscovered and no terrain is taboo. Silver, gold or jewelry. Park, field or beach. The Vanquish offers optimal performance!

Crown corks in the iron area
Another highlight of these detectors is that it shows crown corks in the iron area and you can even hide them! This is a real highlight, as almost all other metal detectors show the bottle caps as a valuable object and you cannot hide them from your search. If you do a lot of searching on the beach or in the park, being able to hide the bottle caps is a great advantage.

Compact design
The Vanquish has a unique design and weighs only 1.3 kg (2.9 lbs). The armrest can be easily adjusted, as can the linkage. It can be pushed together up to 76 cm. The maximum length is 145 cm. The snap lock system makes it easy to pack and transport.
