Two steps to success when wiring up a coil on the Excalibur.

Many of us have attempted to change coils on the Excalibur and forgot which way to hook the wires back up after we cut the coil cable or when we are using coils from a different manufacturer that has different color wires.
Here is a simple way to get the phasing right on both the transmit and receive wires. The transmit wires will have the lower resistance or if your using a Minelab coil the colors are usually red and black. The receive wires have the higher resistance and the wire colors on these can vary.

1) Hook up the transmit and receive wires to the Excal. Transmit to transmit and receive to receive. Put it in the all metal/pinpoint mode and turn the unit on. If you don’t get a threshold tone reverse the receive wires and power the unit back up, you should have a threshold tone.

2) With the unit powered up in the all metal/ pinpoint mode pass an iron object over the center of the coil, if it nulls or goes quiet the transmit wires are reversed. Power the Excal down and reverse the transmit wires.

3) You should be good to go at this point. I never use the confusing hook up charts that are on the internet because sometimes you don’t know what has been done to the Excal or the coil.
