A differential and integral relative electron excess spectra of an extensive air shower are calculated. Using the mathematical simulation, the magnetic induction from this electron excess and electromagnetic induction output pulses on the contacts of the magnetic sensor with defined parameters are calculated. It is shown that output pulses have a little sensitivity to the soft part (≤ 4 МeV) of the energy excess electron spectra. This opens up possibilities for the development of an alternative method for the extensive air shower detection where the role of the amount fluctuation of low energy particles is very small. All the necessary results for the planning of a research experiment are obtained.
