The design of the metal detector control box

Picture this - I was sitting at home enjoying a glass of wine when it hit me - why not take inspiration from the world of wine glasses to design metal detectors that are not only functional but comfortable and ergonomic too?

And so, the idea for the QUEST X, Q, and V series metal detectors was born. Each model was designed with a specific wine glass in mind - the X series with its compact and sleek size was inspired by a dessert wine glass bowl, while the Q series with its higher bowl and more muscular lines and corners was based on a standard wine glass bowl style. And for our professional range, the V series was designed with a wide bowl wine glass for aged reds with intense, complex aromas in mind.

But why wine glasses, you ask? Like a wine glass designed to enhance the drinking experience by releasing and collecting aromas, a metal detector can also benefit from a well-designed shape and size. Compare with the vertical layout of the LCD menu, the V series's horizontal layout is ideal for more complex functions and feature control. By taking inspiration from wine glasses, we were able to create metal detectors that not only perform well but are also intuitive, comfortable, and ergonomic to use.

The X series is perfect for beginners or those who prefer a simpler and more straightforward design. The compact and sleek size of the control box makes it easy to handle and portable. And the 9x5" coil is also perfect for detecting smaller objects like jewelry or coins. The Q series, on the other hand, is for those who want a machine that can handle a wider range of terrain and conditions, as well as detect larger and heavier objects like artifacts or relics. The higher bowl and more muscular lines and corners give the metal detector a more confident feel in hand. And for our professional range, the V series is the cream of the crop. The wider bowl of the V series metal detector allows for maximum control of multi settings, which is ideal for more precise setups for different scenarios.

At QUEST, we believe that the details matter when it comes to designing metal detectors. By paying attention to the shape and size of the machine, we can create models that are optimized for specific uses and conditions. Whether you're a beginner or a professional, we have a metal detector that will suit your needs and enhance your experience. So, the next time you're out metal detecting, think about the design of your machine and how it's affecting your experience. With the QUEST X, Q, and V series metal detectors, you can be sure that you're using a machine that is not only functional but also inspired by the elegance and sophistication of wine glasses.
