Minelab E-TRAC Metal Detector
Minelab's Most Technologically Advanced Detector
Setting a new benchmark in metal detecting technology, Minelab has created the E-TRAC. Fashioned after the popular Minelab Explorer SE, the E-TRAC takes computer driven features to a new level.E-TRAC’s advanced technology means:
- Greater detecting depth
- High sensitivity over a wide range of targets
- Less interference from electromagnetic sources
- More accurate identification of target characteristics
Experience the excitement of discovery E-TRAC sets a new benchmark! Utilizing the precision of Minelab's proven Full Band Spectrum (FBS) multi-frequency technology, E-TRAC is fast, sensitive, accurate and DEEP! Advanced digital filtering has been enhanced with the development of new timings ensuring optimum sensitivity and accurate discrimination. A refined discrimination scale supports real-time analysis on target identification utlizing the fastest, most powerful microprocessor ever. New features include superior ergonomics and the introduction of a USB facility with XChange software, allowing you to download, save and email your favorite settings! A logical, intuitive menu supports easy access across all functions making E-TRAC a superb choice for new users and experienced detectorists alike.

What You're Familiar With:
Minelab's precise and proven Full band Spectrum (FBS) multi-frequency technology is a key player in the E-TRAC detector, as is the NiMH battery and the perfectly balanced, waterproof 11" DD search coil. Four audio tone settings are available: "Normal," "Long," "Smooth," and "Pitch Hold." The Target Identification has a conductivity range of 1 - 50, and a ferrous content range of 1 - 35.
E-TRAC Detection Screens
Target information is presented via the Smartfind™ discrimination pattern, sensitivity gauge, Fe-Co numbers and depth gauge.
Large Fe and Co numbers coordinate the target crosshairs.
QuickMask™ incorporates two slider controls to adjust the level of ferrous and conductivity discrimination.
The new E-TRAC is a metal detector that is a true and genuine detector to be reckoned with. It is right at the very top of metal detector features for all detecting uses. It's a genuine "Does it all Metal Detector"!
E-TRAC has brand New Technology combined with proven and established Minelab Technology and then some!
The E-TRAC reflects energy, forward thinking creativity in a radically advanced metal detector that can be very easy to use!
This is the type of metal detector which will excel at any task , and the very attractive thing about the E-TRAC is it can be as easy to use just by turning it on and allowing the Factory Preset settings to run the show.
Quite simply, E-TRAC is capable of delivering some high quality serious detecting and that's what it's all about, isn't it
Don’t have a computer? Don’t worry! The Minelab E-TRAC has upgrades that everyone can enjoy – with or without a computer to hook it up to! With the large selection of modes and programs available, a computer is not necessary or required to take full advantage of this great detector.
