The Minelab Vanquish 540 Metal Detector

Now Entry-Level is Next-Level

Minelab Vanquish 540 is the upper end the new Vanquish series. With advanced technology not found in more expensive machines and turn on and go usability combined with a lightweight, compact design, this is the ultimate machine for the beginner to intermediate detectorist and a serious back-up for the expert.

The 540 model comes with the larger V12 search coil as standard, giving improved depth. Offering 3 pre-set detecting modes plus pin-point and all metal modes the Vanquish 540 will take your detecting to the next level. With additional iron bias control and 25 discrimination segments you have fine control to decide the metals you accept, while an All Metal shortcut button lets you quickly accept everything.

The Vanquish 540 also includes a red back-light display, headphones, rain cover, arm strap, skid plate and Bluetooth aptX low-latency wireless audio capability, all for under $500.

Simple user interface with red back-light LCD display




Probably the most exciting feature of the Vanquish Series, which puts it way ahead of others in its price range (and above), is the inclusion of Minelab's unique Multi-IQ Simultaneous Multi-Frequency Technology, as seen in the Equinox Series which made it a real game changer in the metal detecting world and by far the best selling metal detector in 2018, 2019 and probably all-time to date.

All the Vanquish Series detectors operate on three frequencies, low, medium and high simultaneously, giving you the best of all worlds whatever you are searching for.


What sets Multi-IQ apart from other so-called multi-frequency systems is that it is true Simultaneous multi-frequency. That is you are transmitting and receiving on all supported frequencies at the same time as opposed to selecting just one frequency from a given range to use at any one time, which is probably better described as switchable frequency. Switching frequency is effectively like swapping one single frequency coil for another, without physically swapping it. With Minelab's simultaneous multi-frequency it's like using all your coils in one sweep of your machine.


Three Simultaneous FrequenciesMore than that, the real intelligence of the system is that the Multi-IQ processing will collate and compare the signals from all operating frequencies, analasing the similarities and differences between them to get a clearer picture of what's really down there. This gives you better target ID and discrimination at greater depth, and the versatility to perform in a wider range of ground types, handling mineralisation, wet sand, coke/iron occlusion, etc. That means you can find and identify targets that a single frequency will struggle with.




Now anyone can harness the unrivaled power of Multi-IQ, with easily selectable pre-set detecting modes, already set up and tested by Minelab experts. There is no need to learn the complexities of various settings, the hard work has been done for you. Turn on, select a mode, detect.
