E-TRAC Pin Point mode choices

June 24, 2010 12:32pm

Hello, today I’m going to present a great, ADVANCED feature to be found in your E-TRAC metal detector!
 
Did you know that the E-TRAC has two Pin Point Modes?
They are NORMAL and SIZING. They both do the same thing but in slightly different ways…let me explain!
 
The two modes are selected via the Preferences Menu and the Default Mode is Normal.
 
In Normal the E-TRAC operates just the same as any other VCO type pin point system giving a precise audible location and rising to a crescendo screech when the center of the coil or best detection area is directly over the center of the target – this also ensures correct and ‘true value’ target ID’s
 
The first sweeps over a target will give a wide response...

The Sovereign GT - a modern Day Classic

June 15, 2010 10:10am

The Sovereign GT's effective, powerful and simplistic design has created a dedicated fan base of relic, coin and beach hunters around the world, and I’m proud to say I’m one of them!

Back in 1989, the first Multi-Frequency detector hit the market, and it set the coin/relic/jewellery detecting market alight – it was the Minelab Sovereign. The Sovereign featured BBS technology (Broad Band Spectrum) transmitting 17 frequencies from 1.5 – 25.5 kHz, to provide maximum depth and sensitivity to a range of target conductivities. The other advantage of BBS was (and still is)...

Four Tips to Help Your Detector Auto Tune or Noise Cancel

June 09, 2010 11:46am

Metal detectors are sensitive instruments designed to detect small changes in magnetic field. Nearby metal changes the field as intended but so do far off thunderstorms, electric motors, electric fences, RF transmitters, power lines and nearly everything that a modern society plugs into an electrical outlet.
Many of Minelab’s metal detectors have a function that allows them to locate and avoid these interfering signals. In some detectors we use the term ‘Noise Cancel’ while in others we use the term ‘Tune’, ‘Auto Tune’ or ‘Manual Tune’. These terms all refer to the same thing, that is the process where the metal detector or the operator searches through the available tuning range, looking for the quietest point at which to operate...

Make the ground disappear

June 04, 2010 09:16am

One of the most frequently asked prospecting questions I hear concerns ground balancing gold prospecting metal detectors; what it actually does, how does it work and is it complicated to perform. I try to share everything with the K.I.S.S. (Keeping It Surprisingly Simple) principle in mind.

When we are detecting there are only a few things we are actually doing one is putting the right amount of signal into the ground (another blog topic) and making the ground disappear.

Think of your ground balance (GB) as the magician that waves a cloak over a box of dirt...
