Minelab E-Trac


MSRP: $2,014.00

Minelab's Most Technologically Advanced Detector!

Its sleek, sturdy design, innovative control panel, intuitive menus, clear LCD, robust lightweight coil and comprehensive targeting options set E-Trac apart from any other detector available today.

Minelab has taken a further ground breaking step by incorporating a USB interface, which will allow you to download and upload E-Trac settings, User Modes, and Discrimination Patterns using your own Personal Computer.

E-Trac will locate valuable metal objects in a variety of mineralized ground conditions such as extremely salty soils, sea water, wet beach sand and highly magnetic ground conditions. By using the E-Trac you can become one of the many successful detectorists who combine their passion for the outdoors with the excitement of discovering valuable coins, relics, gold and jewelry on a regular basis.

E-Trac Technology

E-Trac Technology delivers Full Band Spectrum (FBS) with Simultaneous Frequencies ranging from 1.5kHz - 100kHz through its powerful microprocessor. The frequency range means that the signal received from the detector coil is analyzed from a wide range of responses. This allows E-Trac's advanced signal processing to rate detected objects according to their ferrous and conductivity (FE-CO) characteristics and analyze more target information so that the target identification (ID) is more accurate.

Minelab's Smartfind™ is a unique two-dimensional scale of discrimination. Smartfind™ graphically represents both the ferrous and conductivity properties on the same display. This combined with E-Trac's target Discrimination ability eliminates signals from undesired targets and accepts signals from desired targets. E-Trac's technology means:

    • Greater detecting depth
    • High sensitivity over a wide range of targets
    • Less interference from electromagnetic sources
    • More accurate identification of target characteristics

E-Trac Xchange

E-Trac Xchange allows you to download and upload detector settings and Discrimination Patterns via USB to your Personal Computer. This advanced feature is designed to allow you to quickly configure the E-Trac to particular detecting environments and preferred targets.

You can always share your experiences and settings with other detectorists. The installation CD and Xchange User Guide supplied with your E-Trac ensure you can get started straight away.

You can build a resource library charting your success with your E-Trac. Download and store your valuable Settings, User Modes and Patterns for your favorite sites and upload them as required. There's no limit to the number you can store on your PC, so make the most of your E-Trac and never worry about losing your successful settings again!
