Features of the Minelab X-TERRA 505

  • Minelab’s proprietary "True Digital" VFLEX technology- the new class of single frequency detectors you can change the operating frequency simply by changing coils.
  • Compatible with low frequency (LF) 3kHz coils as well as medium 7kHz and high frequencies 18.75kHz. The LF coil option is ideal for hunting large, deep targets. All seven X-TERRACoils can now be used on the X-TERRA 505.
  • Increased Ground Balance capability range- now (0-50), allowing the user to adjust to ground mineralization.
  • Extra detecting pattern- now features three preset detecting patterns, that can also be customised, plus All Metal mode.
  • Choice of 1,2,3 or 4 Tone ID’s plus Multi-tone Target ID (19) response options increasing your flexibility in deciding how target signals are represented.
  • Larger discrimination range- allowing for finer discrimination of high conductive targets.
  • Increased Noise Cancel range- now 5 manual settings, allowing greater choice of detecting channel. Increased Target Volume Adjust range, now (0-30), allowing better target response.
  • Threshold adjustment- with a range of -5 to 25, allowing the user to set threshold to level where slight variations from either very small shallow, or very large deep, targets can be noticed.
  • Fast recovery Pin-Point- with variable tone and graphical indicator.
  • Depth indicator- updates continuously, even in Pinpoint mode.
  • Positive reflective LCD display.
