Absolutely nothing.
It is a marketing claim that can not be supported by any scientific means. A coil is a coil and a loop is a loop. In their very nature inductors have no preference to anything at all.

Hi Clint, Where have you read this information ? as far as I am aware there is nothing relating to the these coils being more selective to non ferrous targets :-/

Yep just checked...distinguishes between ferrous and non ferrous and highly sensitive to non ferrous targets...to quote the description

Is it this quote here clint...
High selectivity (distinguishing between ferrous and non ferrous objects)
enhanced sensitivity to non-ferrous targets

Hi Clint, I was curious so contacted Mars and had the below response.
Hello,
You are partially right that it’s the detector that discriminates between ferrous and non-ferrous targets. But considering that these ones are lying in the ground - the latter has an effect on the machine’s operation, too. The items buried in the ground may sound/ be detected by the device as iron. And the more mineralization soil has, the greater this effect is. We have purposefully changed some parameters in our coils in order to reduce this influence.
Best regards,
Kate Poliarska

Thanks for taking the time to find out m. They must have a secret coil facility. ...Wonder if it's on Mars?
