The Garrett ACE 400i is one of the best metal detectors under $450. It offers many options including the DD disc, a frequency of 10 kHz, the IRON AUDIO and accessories such as the disc protector and headphones. Read more
Garrett Ace 400i metal detector with free accessories
The Ace 400i is the top model in the ACE series. The price / quality ratio of the Garrett Ace is very good. This digital Garrett Ace 400i metal detector has a 10 Khz search frequency and five search modes for jewelry, coins, relics or all metals. You also have the option to create your own search mode. You can easily read the object identification (metal type recognition) on the display and even a depth indicator in cm. is not missing. You can easily exclude unwanted iron objects such as nails and beer caps from your search process. The Ace 400i is equipped with an extra strong camlock stem attachment for very stable and comfortable search movements.
Higher search frequency
With its 10 KHZ search frequency, the Ace 400i has a higher search frequency than the earlier ACE models (6.5 KHZ - Ace 150, Ace 250, Euroace) and the Ace 200i and 300i. The advantage of this 10 KHZ higher search frequency is the improved sensitivity for low and medium conductive objects (gold, lead etc.)
DD search coil for large depth range
Equipped with the latest type of Proformance DD search coil in large format (21.5 x 28 cm) 8.5 x 11 inch for extra depth, accurate positioning and better distinction of directly adjacent objects. This search coil reduces the negative effects of mineralized soils. You will be able to get a good depth range; up to 35 cm for coin-sized objects, up to 125 cm for large objects.
Numerical Item Identification (1 - 99)
The Ace400i metal detector features both segment bar object identification and numerical object identification (1-99). As soon as the metal detector detects an object, you will hear an audio tone and a number will appear in the center of the display. Each number represents a metal type / object type. (For example no. 76 a euro coin, number 20 iron) This way you can learn to identify (recognize) objects. To make it even easier, a block will also appear at the top of the display below your segment bar. You can read from this which type of metal the object is probably made of. (e.g. iron). In addition, the Ace400i features 3x audio pitch object identification. The metal detector then gives three different audio tones for the different metal types. A low tone for iron, a medium-high tone for gold and other objects, and a higher tone for silver.
You can adjust the sensitivity (depth) yourself, as well as the discrimination. (ability to discriminate against unwanted objects such as nails and beer caps).
The iron discrimination of the Ace 400i is very accurate and improved compared to the earlier Ace series.
The Iron audio function allows the user to adjust the audio volume for iron, allowing you to hear the iron signal better or, if desired, turn it off completely, so that you no longer hear an audio tone if iron is detected. This function contributes to the better recognition of iron objects. The advantage of Iron Audio over the discrimination function is that you keep the depth range. As soon as you use the discrimination function it always has a negative influence on your depth range.
The Garrett Ace 400i has an extra pinpoint function. This is a tool for precise location of objects. This allows you to better determine the location of the object and you will have less work excavating the object.
The Notch function offers you the possibility of very precise discrimination. You can now even discriminate specific ID blocks. This contributes to the goal of finding more objects and less waste.
To prevent interference with other metal detectors and electronics, the Ace 400i offers a frequency changer. If you suffer from disturbance, you can simply change the frequency.
Waterproof search coil:
The Ace400i has a waterproof search coil and stem, only the display is not waterproof. You can therefore use the Garrett Ace detector in shallow water, as long as the display does not get wet. You should also protect your display with a display cover during a rain shower.
This metal detector excels especially in its depth range and its fast response speed (recovery speed). The latter is especially important if several objects are located directly next to each other. Most metal detectors will then only give you 1 signal. You will notice that the Ace 400i lets you hear and see that it involves multiple objects.
