Minelab    E - TRAC


Die neueste Wunderwaffe aus dem Hause Minelab setzt einen

neuen Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Metalldetektorentechnologie.


Der neue Minelab E-TRAC ist wahrscheinlich der am besten entwickelste Detektor der Welt.

Mit der neuen FBS Technologie und seinem innovativen Design, dem LCD Bildschirm und seiner

Leichtgewichtigkeit verkörpert der E-TRAC all das, was das Sucherherz begehrt.

Minelab gelang ein weiterer bahnbrechender Schritt in Sachen Detektortechnologie. Mit dem neuen

USB Interface (Schnittstelle) und der integrierten Software zum Programmieren für Zuhause über

Laptop oder PC. Der E-TRAC lokalisiert wertvolle Objekte in einer Vielzahl von mineralisierten

Bodenarten genauso, wie auf extremen Salz-, Meeres- oder hochmagnetischen Böden.

Wenn sie den E-TRAC benutzen, dann werden sie mit Sicherheit einer der erfolgreichen

Detektoristen, welche ihre Leidenschaft und ihre Liebe zu diesem Outdoor-Hobby mit der

Entdeckung von wertvollen Münzen, Artefakten, Juwelen und Gold verbinden können.

What our Field Testers are saying:

UK: “First impression... Wow! Where do I start? Two search patterns (Quick Mask), larger viewable screen and a lighter overall feel are going to be real winners. The choice of tones selection modes is a welcome addition. And I like the extra control I now have to adjust the way the detector performs on bad ground (using the 'Trash Density' and 'Ground' controls).”

“..I dug a lot of very deep signals….and found a Roman silver siliquae and Charles I hammered half crown at exceptional depths.”


“Coin mode….This is a very good starter program for first time users of the E-Trac. In fact….a good program for experienced users to use as well. On a pasture yesterday, I switched from my custom program to ‘Coin mode’ and immediately dug two Roman coins at over 10” depth!”

“Relic mode Damn this is a good program! This is also the perfect base ‘Pro’ setting, the starting point for all really advanced programs. All I needed to do to customise the E-Trac to my style of detecting was to change ‘Sounds’ from ‘Ferrous’ to ‘Conduct’ and then add my own custom disc pattern.

In this mode...on a British 5p coin it gave a positive signal response at 12”.”

“Although I never used auto sensitivity on the SE, I’m impressed with the way this works on the E-TRAC, a great improvement!

·       The recovery rate is noticeably faster. I am really looking forward for the crops to come off so I can get this on my best fields.

·       I like the louder clearer signals to small target... I tested a cut quarter next to iron rejecting just 'nails' and the response was identifiable!

·       This evening I've been detecting on a site where the soil is more mineralised. In fact the performance of the E-TRAC was bloomin’ fantastic!!! It banged out loud clear signals on finds ... and the signal quality was a lot better on the deep small native targets with the E-TRAC (sharper and clearer audio responses)... some of the trickier SE signals just wouldn't have been dug if the E-TRAC hadn't already given positive signal on them.

·       This is a great machine and it's going to earn me a lot of money! Well-done!”


USA:    “The last target I dug was a quarter at 16”— excellent performance!  I had a really good time with it today.”

    “Trash density: When set to high the machine not only quieted down noticeably but I was able to recover coins at up to 8” with aluminum trash in the hole right above the target.  Amazing, guys, and a job well done on this feature.”


USA:    “Sensitivity:  The E-Trac hits harder and provides a more consistent signal on deeper targets or those masked by nearby trash. The ergonomics & balance is clearly significantly better.  The menu structure is significantly better.”

    “Trash density:  One target I picked up at the fairgrounds was a solid 12/13-45/46.  I cut a plug and saw a rusted Bic cigarette lighter about two inches down in the plug.  As I looked at the bottom of the hole, there was a clad dime – not a great find but it demonstrated the “see-thru” capabilities.”
