Another satisfied QED user!
QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
QED is here! ML have NOT stopped the QED!
The QED pictured is backward compatible with the current QED and has been designed and made by a member here. The firmware and circuit are identical with the current version except for a change in the face plate and control box. Changing to this configuration will NOT void the warranty when performed by the control box designer as it has been endorsed, approved and authorized by the QED manufacturer. The 4th button will not work at this time as the  firmware update for that has not been created yet and when its available will be provided free of charge (other than postage costs)by BW.

Goldsearch Australia has been appointed the Australian Distributor for the QED. QED info on the Goldsearch website has been updated.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully!

...the signal chain from end to end is operational ...rewritten the audio section to produce  a fully digital arbitrary waveform generator with digital volume and frequency control

The pic shows TX  pulses  at coil end and audio waveform at the user end  .... verrry nice even if I say so myself.

So is the detector now complete?

The board is - see board on testbench below ... This is close to the final version. Minor track tweaks to improve track  spacing here and there .. I may do away with the plug .... you can see in the pic that the wire from the coil goes straight to the plug  .. there are no solder points in the coil. Coil shielding is not required ... this detector has a broadband match front end and does not pick up EMI or hand capacitance.  ( willing to be convinced that this is not the case but only testing will tell )   More code tweaks to improve audio and user control interface. Lots of field testing. ( aiming for october when the guys are available. )
The current draw is  320 ma at 16.6 volts and 450 ma at 12 volts ( LIPO pack discharged ). Thats good for 10 hours  of detecting on the pack I am using. The unit will shutdown when the battery voltage reaches over discharge for LIPO.  batteries cos $90 not $250 and  there is enough spare pins on the CPU to build an integrated LIPO fast charger .. but that will be version 2.

Hi Ian .. everything is on board ... the onboard CPU is as good as the UNO32 but costs $5 instead of $35 ... less wires to manage as well.

see pic below.

Will the case be water resistant? ie will you be able to detect with it if its raining?

the electronics will/may be encased in resin with anti tamper fitted ... so no mods. Uses an israeli developed security technique. If the resin is removed even partially the device is inoperative.
It also means that the device cannot be repaired either. However it should be fairly reliable and water resistant.

Can the anti tamper/resin encasing prevent reverse engineering?

Moodz, It sounds like a BALL RIPPA!

Love all the technology and IP hidden away from prying Mindy eyes!  excited 

Keep at it and GOOD LUCK!  good luck

anyone can reverse anything if they try hard enough ... but mainly it makes tampering obvious so you don't have bogus warranty issues.

They (the DENIGRATORS) take such a passionate interest in what happens here don't they?

      Who remembers the white paint board, hiding ML IP, protected by patents?
      Or the delirious delight when a naked board was briefly exposed etc etc
  scared

Poor Mr Walker can hardly contain his rage (over his view of history) before switching to delirious laughter!!

     Amazing!

My adulation over the Moodz’ tamper evident potting mix or coating was deserved … as ML can attest!  

      (“making sucking noises”  love it! ….. whoop !!  )

Electronics are reliable these days and who needs to mod, upgrade or solder these days? Woody?
Nah, my old 2200 never needed it so this newer better detector certainly won't, will it?
(Ah feels so good to be back 'on the seat', the toilet seat, dropping them on the clowns, the old flounders flopping about looking for any info to pass on, inquire about or corrupt!  excited

Keep laughing coz it gets funnier all right … as funny as the justice that is still coming, I heard today.

The theories from behind the wall still amaze and amuse all true believers.

Keep wondering as you wander the wilderness Mr Walker

True Moodz ...... but you have got to remain POSITIVE and work towards a positive (ball breaking) outcome!   good luck
