Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector
The Most Flexible and Configurable Treasure Detectors
New 3 kHz frequency option is now available with the new X-Terra 505. The 3 kHz coil gives improved depth on highly conductive metals, such as, silver and copper coins, as well as other large metal objects. (Available in an optional 9 inch size coil.)
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!
The X-Terra 505 is like having three detectors in one.
All X-Terra models offers an ergonomically designed three-piece shaft with a new waterproof concentric coil design. Featuring rugged, lightweight construction, the X-Terra's are perfectly balanced for hours of comfortable use in the field.
Each search coil you change on your X-Terra 505 Metal detector creates a new, different metal detector that operates on a different frequency, allowing you to find more treasures. Each coil adds new possibilities to your searching. Search deeper, find gold, and locate targets missed by other detectors. The possibilities are endless! Make two metal detectors from one X-Terra 505! The standard 7.5 kHz search coil is considered to be the optimum coil for all-purpose metal detecting.
Meanwhile the new, higher 18.75 kHz frequency provided by the 9" search coil will find the smaller, more valuable targets such as coins on their edge, thin rings and wedding bands, and even small gold nuggets! No need to buy a second metal detector to find these smaller valuables. Changing coils on X-terra is like changing detectors. Maximize your X-Terra 505's flexibility with the new 9" 18.75 kHz search coil that you've been waiting for!
rugged construction and excellent performance in
finding all types of treasure on land, beaches and in shallow water!
The X-Terra 505 is a high performance intermediate detector. An ideal product for those who want to progress from entry level machines and who demand more advanced functionality and performance.
The 505 is a great all-round detector deticated to coin, relic and treasure hunting. It has Manual Ground Balancing allowing it to perofrm in the toughest terrain. The precision of its multi-segment notch discrimination makes it easy to eliminate "trash" and identify good targets.
Recovery is further enhanced by the 505's Depth indicator and rapid recovery Pinpoint function.
The X-Terra boasts yet another new and radical technology to improve single frequency detectors.
This is possible thanks to Minelab's VFLEX technology, which utilizes digital signal processing with highly calibrated analog circuits to create a new class of single frequency detectors. This approach yields superior sensitivity, stability and improved immunity to electromagnetic interference, as well as providing high-resolution target ID even on the deepest targets. For the X-Terra user, this means you'll have the best metal detector available for your target choices.
VFLEX technology uses state-of-the-art digital and mixed-signal components to enhance standard single frequency technology. This effectively replaces 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.

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.
Information about the coil is sent to the control box, so the detector "knows" what type of coil is attached and can set the correct operating parameters. This optimizes the performance and also makes the detector (X-Terra 505 Only) "future proof": in that it will be capable of operating with different frequency coils.
Trust your senses and let the X-Terra do the rest.
