Detectors have been approved by both European and US government agencies
following the most detailed and stringent tests. Objects can be detected
in the armpit, within water and other substances and in the mouth. The
more sensitive units have been installed in special hospitals.
The highest level of security is maintained with the minimum of stops.
This is achieved through very high discrimination which means that the
cummulative agreed mass of metal on a person is always detected and slightly
smaller cummulative mass does not cause an alarm.
In the UK the models which have been approved are listed below -
||Approval and Application
Very low stop rate for a given sensitivity - achieved by very high
||Enhanced version of the SMD600
||Elliptical columns, easily portable: ideal for ports,
mobile police application and armed forces
(Water-proof model to IP55 available)
||Multi-zone detection for sensitive
||Very high sensitivity for precious metals etc.
||Entry level unit for industry and entertainment
Photocells can be provided to count the numbers of people passing
through the metal detector and are not affected by those who are sent
back for rescreening. This facility is particularly useful in gauging
the numbers passing into a building and also in providing a statistical
analysis of the number of alarms and the percentage of alarms. The photocells
cannot be retrofitted and must be ordered with new equipment.
Unit connected to the detecor by means of a serial link. It allows programming
and monitoring of settings to be carried out remotely.
Management software to connect up to 20, 50, 100 or 210 metal detectors
External Main Battery Supply Unit, including two 12 VDC emergency batteries
and a charger.
Software for "oscilloscope" simulation and computer terminal
operation for metal detectors which shows a graphical illustration of
objects passing through the metal detector.
Instructions and samples required for the FAA 3-GUN-TEST standard.
Instructions and samples required for the NILECJ-STD-0601-00 standard.
Pre-programmed chip-cards for a direct selection of security levels according
to International Standards.
Purchase / Rental
We can arrange for units to be purchased outright or to be rented for
an agreed period and then purchased for a nominal sum.
Walk-through metal detectors are extremely reliable and are capable of
self-diagnosis. We offer a checking process which ensures that the agreed
national or international standard is adhered to and a report is given
accordingly. Numbered test pieces can be supplied to ensure that correct
tests are carried out in accordance with the national standards
