GPA 1000 XS


KTS-Electronic introduces the successor of GPA 1000, the worldwide known ground scanner.

The new GPA 1000 XS model is lighter and more compact as the previous model GPA 1000 V16. Furthermore it offers the following advantages:

  • Both electronic units of GPA 1000 and GOLD SCAN III are built-in.
  • Two different KTS-programs for the GPA 1000 XS (Android)
  • New GOLD SCAN III metal discrimination with different colors for gold, copper, aluminium and ferro metals.
  • Touchdisplay for an easier usage, better graphics and data output.
  • New 400g Universal probe (towards 1200g of previous model) for 10m and 15m search depth, selectable on screen without sensor switch.
  • Waterproof 30 x 30 cm (12″) GOLD SCAN III coil for greater search performance and comfort in favor of durable searches.

GPA 1000 XS is offered in a set and uses the high depth performance of the GPA technology for professional gold prospecting, treasure hunting and ground scanning.

The GPA 1000 XS set is applicable on every soil type. Through precise measuring of soil changes the device finds gold and other metals and locates cavities up to a maximum depth of approx. 15 meters.

Due to precise measurement of soil changes the GPA 1000 XS set enables the:

  • Identification of gold, precious metals, cavities,  ancient treasures
  • Determination of size and shape of the findings
  • Presentation in 2D and 3D on screen,
  • Transmission of wireless data transfer to tablet computer through Bluetooth®

KTS-Electronic - GPA 1000 XS search

The GPA 1000 XS is a professional ground scanner, which is developed and produced only by KTS-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG in Germany. With a maximum search performance of approx. 15 meters (approx. 49 feet) GPA 1000 XS outmatches other gold detectors and professional metal detectors with their outdated technology and limited potential by far.

The device’s excellent search performance is reached through newly developed XS probes, which are equipped with sensitive high performance sensors and a microprocessor-controlled earth’s magnetic field compensation. As a result the GPA search system marks the present state-of-the-art and is useable also on highly mineralised soil and rocky ground.

The GPA 1000 XS is easy to control trough the touch display and can be operated without prior knowledge. The current version is provided with only one ON-/OFF-button. After power up the display immediately shows all relevant informations.

Mineral resources, treasures and cavities have an influence on the ground balance. Compared to conventional metal detectors the GPA technology has a crucial advantage to measure changes in the ground and to display these changes through a 3D visualisation software (which is developed by KTS-Electronic) on the provided tablet computer.

Equipped with an integrated touch display the unit delivers data of battery status, provides information on compensation and shows the sensor value. The data is automatically digitized and will be transformed wirelessly via Bluetooth® to the tablet computer. Without the necessity of further settings the calibration is conducted by a microprocessor and will be carried out automatically on every soil. The GPA 1000 XS therefore is applicable on every soil type. The electric power supply (operating time approx. 4 to maximum 6 hours) is guaranteed through two exchangeable 2900 mAh Li-ion batteries. Through the provided quick-charger the battery is fully charged within 90 minutes. An external car charging cable for the connection to your car’s cigarette lighter (socket) is part of the equipment as well as an additional 110 Volt adapter, beside 220 V.

Metal discrimination

The GPA 1000 XS electronic unit contains the GOLD SCAN III gold detector, which also is newly developed. The device comes with a 30 x 30 cm (12″) search coil. The gold detector GOLD SCAN III discriminates gold from other metals and indicates the scanned metal type on the display, like gold, copper, aluminium and ferrous metal.

Universal probe

The GPA 1000 XS set includes the new compact 60 cm (24″) GPA XS universal probe. In order to measure smallest changes in the ground, the probe is equipped with high-sensitivity sensors and an automatic calibration. The probes weighs approx. 400g and are connected to a carbon telescope bar, which easily is adjustable in length.

The waterproof coil (30 x 30 cm) is applicable for the location of particularly small metals as well as large objects. There is no need for additional adjustments.

1 x 1 m search frame


The new 1 x 1 m search frame is contained only in the GPA 3000 set and is produced with an internal cable. Large areas are scanned quickly and effortlessly. The search frame is suitable for the deep scanning after medium-sized and big objects and with the aid of shoulder straps it can be carried from 1 to 2 persons. It is made of plastic pipes and is demountable into 4 pieces. The demounted frame is delivered in the attached bag and can be transported easily.

GPA 1000 XS Software
