Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

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!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
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 ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

Their are still a number of hurdles to be jumped before any consideration of commercialization of the QED can be considered.One of the big ones (and expensive one's) is compliance testing for EMI at an approved facility. Any detector sold must have  C tick compliance.Not sure  at this stage about ROHS requirements.ie would the QED have to certified as lead free?

Its needs to be said that the new QED  GB and timing method has come about from hundreds of hours of unpaid [email protected] and bench top and field testing by BW as well as changes in the circuit topology, board layout, matching of components and or course writing the new software for the micro. Considering BW  has limited  technical resources (no 5 years [email protected] and 10  million dollars! ) at his disposal  compared to a company its a very  significant achievement in my opinion.

doug smile


A C-tick is like a health food manufacturer who puts a heart tick on their product ... ( even if it is full of fat / salt and sugar .. the 3 main food groups )

Its worth looking for metal detectors under the appropriate classifiction ....   
can you spot it ?

The testing is probably moot because ppl will be using their own coils ... who knows what the shielding on those coils is like ? ... any radiation is most likely to occur from the coil since it is the biggest conductor attached to the box. 

In summary a C tick is only useful if you are likely to be selling to government bodies ( eg police / defence etc etc )

..the RCM may be more about safety than EMI.

In-scope electrical equipment is low voltage electrical equipment that is rated at:

Greater than 50 V AC RMS or 120V ripple-free DC (Extra-low voltage) and
Less than 1000V AC RMS or 1500V ripple-free DC (high voltage),
In-scope electrical equipment must be designed, or marketed as suitable for household, personal or similar use.

If the regulator claims that the item is in-scope electrical equipment it will be taken that way unless the Responsible Supplier or the manufacturer can prove the contrary as true.

The key  point is that if the QED is going to be sold  both here and  o/s then it is advisable to have it tested for EMI compliance.You get it tested for EMI compliance using a small mono which then covers your arse if someone decides to use another coil or modify it!

Well it will have to sold with the mono ... thats why ML sell theirs with coils ( ie as tested ).

It could also be tested with a DD coil as well if it was thought necessary?

 I find it amusing that 1/2 wit  Rolling on the floor laughing!  crazy clown thinks that the courts or ML killed off or stopped any further [email protected] or discussion of the QED! He is clearly wrong (as this and other threads show!!!) or is deliberately telling lies yet again just like he is telling lies about me allowing him or appointing him as an admin of this forum. I never appointed him as a forum admin EVER! I banned him here for hacking one of this forums boards without my consent or knowledge!
1/2 wits IP address is not banned on this forum so he can access this forum directly , but only as a  guest. However my static IP address is banned at  his forum despite what he claims! But then again we know that he can't stop telling lies!
Just setting the record straight.

  I can hardly wait.  It has been a long time coming.  Probably change the whole idea of gold detecting.  Right Doug?  So do you think a field test video will be this year?

It's heartening to see BILLY & egixe4 so enthused at the prospect of a realistically priced & performance competitive detector finally being available soon. smile

 All of the field testing over hot , goldfield ground has been done with NF mono coils. If NF  EVO mono's are used  over this ground then the gain of the QED may have to be reduced compared to the older style NF mono's. The NF evo's appear to be more sensitive to lateral changes in ground mineralization ie highly variable mineralized ground.

Nice work Bugs..yes like others ..When ???? ..is one able to use DD coils ..
Yes can see why u would have to reduce sensitivity if using the newer coils ..have to do that on my mod 3000.. Anyhow will be interesting
