In just two decades, Minelab has technologically revolutionized the metal detecting industry. During this period, Minelab introduced ground breaking technologies such as "true automatic ground balance," "Multi-Period Sensing" and "Multi-Frequency." Minelab's passion for solving every-day metal detecting challenges has earned it the reputation of making the best detectors that money can buy!

Changing coils on X-terra is like changing detectors. Maximize your
X-Terra 305's flexibility simply by changing coils
single frequency detectors.
VFLEX technology uses state of the art digital and mixed-signal components to enhance standard single frequency technology replacing most of the analogue circuitry with digital signal processing.The small amount of analogue circuitry still employed has been very carefully designed and calibrated to obtain the outstanding sensitivity, stability and repeatability required to match the performance of the processing in the digital domain
This radical departure from traditional approaches to metal detector design has been made possible by advances in electronics that power personal digital assistants, cell phones and high fidelity portable audio equipment.
For the X-Terra user, this precision means dependable performance and improved immunity to environmental conditions such as ground mineralization, electromagnetic interference and temperature variations.
VFLEX technology requires coils that are accurately constructed and calibrated. Every time the detector starts up, the micro-controllers in the control box and the coil establish communication through a digital data link.
The X-Terra metal detector also introduces new graphic display pinpointing to put you right onto the target. The Pinpoint graphic display allows you to accurately dig the target with minimal ground disturbance, ideal for parks, buildings and other sensitive sites, and gives a nice centered response even from large deeper targets.
rugged construction and excellent performance in
finding all types of treasure on land, beaches and in shallow water!
The large LCD control display and intuitive interface allows users to become proficient in a fraction of the time it takes to master more complicated detectors. The X-Terra is smart and will remember your last settings, including saved patterns. It also allows the user to customize settings based on location and type of search with multi-notch accept / reject function and pre-programmed discrimination patterns.
