Features advanced, multi-frequency Full Band Spectrum (FBS) technology.
Put simply, Minelab’s unique FBS technology means deep, sensitive, accurate detecting.
When developing the Quattro MP, Minelab’s scientists looked at developing a truly easy to use yet extremely powerful multi-purpose
metal detector. Discussions with seasoned treasure hunters from around the world identified a number of possible enhancements for operators.
Combined with Minelab's existing multiple frequency BBS technology, the Quattro gives you greater detecting depth, more consistent sensitivity over a wide range of targets, less interference from electromagnetic sources and a much more accurate identification of your targets.
Most detectors on the market operate on a single (or dual) frequency, ranging from 1 to 70 kilohertz (kHz). Although this technology has served the industry well for years, Minelab’s scientists found that a frequency that worked well in one area would often offer only marginal performance when used in another location. Ground mineralisation, trash content, and target size all had an effect on how effective a detector transmitting a single frequency would operate.
The FBS circuit automatically transmits multiple frequencies simultaneously. This increased frequency range means that the signal received from the detector coil is analyzed from a wide range of responses. This information is relayed to you via the speaker, or headphones, and the control panel’s liquid crystal display as audio and visual target response.
A metal detector’s electromagnetic operating frequencies are measured in kiloHertz (kHz). Low signal frequencies (e.g. 1.5 kHz) penetrate deepest, but sensitivity to smaller targets is low. On the other hand, higher frequencies have a moreshallow depth of penetration but high sensitivity to small targets. The Quattro MP’s multiple-frequency operation provides the advantage of both.
The Quattro MP uses a sophisticated approach to the elimination of signals caused by ground mineralisation. Unlike other forms of ground balance that require constant readjustment, FBS technology uses advanced digital filtering to eliminate the influence of ground signals.
