Metal Detector HI-PE Multi Zone

High Performance Metal Detector

  • Complete Security Detection
  • High Immunity to external interferences
  • Highly visible double Display provides single or multiple location of weapons in transit
  • Very high speed of Detection
  • High Reliability
  • Local or Remote Programming with networking capabilities

The HI-PE Multi-Zone is a high performance walk-through Metal Detector which exceeds all International Security Standards. A «height on person» display actually indicates, by means of illuminated LEDís, the position of the weapon on the person.

Three operating modes are available: Floating (standard), the location zones are not fixed, as in the case of metal detectors with multiple receiver-transmitter coils, but are variable and continuous so as to achieve optimum resolution; 8-Zones and 4-Zones, the alarm threshold can be adjusted individually for each zone.

The HI-PE Multi-Zone allows a high level of discrimination between significant metal masses, such as the weapons which are to be detected, and personal metal items. Extremely high levels of immunity to external interference, making it easy to use even when external electrical noise is encountered. The sensitivity is independent of the transit speed.

The detectorís control unit is incorporated into the structure. Access to programming is protected both by a mechanical lock and by two alphanumeric passwords. The panels are washable and are equipped with shock absorbent edges to protect them against damages. The HI-PE Multi-Zone is manufactured using the most advanced electronics technology, conforming to ISO 9001 Quality Control Standard procedures.
