PI vs VLF Coils - Is there a difference?

Recommended Posts

What is the difference, if any, between a VLF coil and a Pulse Induction coil? Will a PI coil work on a VLF machine & vice-versa?

In a really basic sense, both are coils of copper wire, but the designs can be different, the electrical characteristics (inductance, resistance) are different and even the plugs are different. So if the detector is looking for a certain inductance and resistance and gets something else you can potentially fry circuits. So no, coils are not interchangeable between PIs and VLFs, even coils from VLF by different makers cannot be swapped (like a Fisher coil on a Garrett).
