White's Spectra V3i Metal Detector

One of the most powerful Metal Detectors White's Electronics has ever built!

The Spectra V3i is the first production frequency domain Metal Detector to simultaneously use more than 2 frequencies. It is also the first multi-frequency Metal Detector to offer optimized single frequency modes. And Spectra V3i is the first to display the target phase response independently for each frequency. White's will continue to be a leading innovator in Metal Detection technology.

How Does it Work?

What does multi-frequency do for depth and discrimination? The truth is, any time a detector is simultaneously transmitting more than one frequency, the transmit energy must be divided amongst the frequencies. Therefore, a single frequency detector can usually squeeze out slightly more depth than a multi-frequency design at that certain frequency. But this is an advantage only at one frequency, which tends to favor only a narrow range of targets.

This is where the Spectra V3i really shines. The Spectra V3i transmits at 2.5kHz, 7.5kHz and 22.5kHz, making it simultaneously "HOT" on silver, gold and relics. Single frequency detectors are unable to have "Peak Performance" over such a wide range of targets. This is an advantage not only in detecting desirable targets, but also in discriminating out undesirable targets. So the Spectra V3i multi-frequency detectors get excellent depth over a much wider range of targets, and do a better job of identifying targets.

The Spectra V3i can also beat single frequency detectors at their own game! The Spectra V3i has the ability to run in single frequency mode using any of its three frequencies, and the transmit waveform is optimized to put all the energy into that one frequency. So if you want to hunt for only Deep Silver or only Deep gold jewelry, the Spectra V3i is optimized for these tasks.

The Spectra V3i is ready to go and easy to use! We have found the Spectra V3i very easy to use and offer many of the same operating conveniences that White's Metal Detectors are known for. White's engineers have incorporated many useful features like "Live Control" that allows you to quickly make changes to the sensitivity, threshold and more. A new "Zoom" feature allow you to make the text larger or expand a menu. With only six window menus to choose from, learning the Spectra V3i is Easy! You will be quickly navigating your way to finding more and deeper targets in no time at all.

Spectra V3i Can Hunt In Multiple Languages!

  • Full-Color High Definition Display:
    All the target information you need now in bold, high contrast color! Bigger VDI numbers, icons and SpectraGraph. Use the ZOOM key to enlarge or reduce display info. Hunt using the preset color pallets or create your own custom color schemes for each program.
  • Analyze and 3 Frequency SpectraGraph Screens:
    New ways to interpret target information using ALL of the data collected from each frequency. Analyze shows a "shape" based on the strength of each frequency. 3 Frequency SpectraGraph displays a bar-graph at each frequency.
  • Wireless SpectraSound™ Headphones:
    Engineered just for Spectra V3i by White's. Multiple channels to choose from to avoid picking up signals from other Spectra V3is in the area, or set two headphones up to hear targets from one detector. A terrific tool for teaching about target sounds!
  • 10 All-New Turn-on-and-Go Hunting Programs:
    Set up by the experts at White's. Choose from Coin and Jewelry, Salt Beach, Relic, Prospecting, Deep Silver, High Trash, Meteorite, Hi-Pro, Mixed Mode Pro & Common.
  • 3 Optimized Hunting Frequencies:
    Maximize performance and target ID using the 3 optimal frequencies for the widest variety of targets - 22.5 kHz for gold, 2.5 kHz for silver, or 7.5 kHz for general use. Hunt simultaneously in all 3 for the best target ID, or use a single frequency for prospecting, relic hunting or on the beach.
  • Live Controls for Real-Time Adjustments:
    Make on-the-fly adjusts as you hunt from the "dashboard-like" Live Controls on the bottom of your display. Live Controls are customized for each Preset Program!
  • Six-Block Menu:
    Popular adjustments organized for easy and fast adjustments. All the Discrimination, Sensitivity, Audio and Ground Balance tweaks are here, plus some new adjusts to enhance your performance and depth even more.
  • Vision-to-Vision Wireless Program Transfer:
    Share programs wirelessly with other Spectra V3is! Create a custom program for your hunting and transfer to other Spectra V3is in moments with just a couple of steps.
  • 10"DD Search Coil:
    The 10" Double D is the standard for performance and depth, especially in hard-to-hunt grounds.
  • Adjustable Backlight:
    Twenty different intensity levels.
  • Owner Registration:
    Embed your name and contact information with a special password.
  • Selectable Ground Filters:
    Choose from 8 different ground filtering levels from 5 Hz Band through 12.5 Hz to suit the ground minerals and your search coil sweep preferences.
  • Recovery Delay:
    200 different signal processing speeds to choose from matching sweep speed and search conditions.
  • 3 x 3 Target I.D. System™:
    Quickly and conveniently check targets with 3 different target screens you activate with the trigger. All-new SpectraGraph, Pinpoint, and Analyze screens.
  • On-the-Fly Adjusts:
    Use the Live Controls at the bottom of every search screen and adjust while you hunt. Different Live Controls for every program.
  • Color-Keyed Disc Pattern:
    Current discrimination pattern app didn't know if you wanted rs across the bottom of the search screen's SpectraGraph.
    • Red = Rejected, Green = Accepted
  • Dozens of Expert Menu Options
  • NIMH Rechargeable Battery System
  • A complete hierarchal menu tree of the Spectra V3i. Details of the Preset Program settings for each of the 10 programs, and the range of adjustments for each setting.
