Second generation metal detectors

December 2000 Access Control & Identity Management

Emergency Reaction Services together with Ranger Security have managed to trim the prices of their second generation metal detectors by as much as R10 000.

The new Ranger detectors, distributed by Emergency Reaction Services, use multizone technology. The various zones scan the different areas of your body independently, ignoring small harmless objects. The detectors have a built-in display that pinpoints the location of one or more weapons at a glance, thus saving labour costs at checkpoints.

Traffic flows of up to 50 people a minute are now possible with considerable savings of manpower costs at checkpoints. In addition, these detectors allow one to walk through the detector with normal quantities of keys and coins, without triggering. Walk through with a weapon and the alarm triggers.

The detectors also include 20 built-in programs. One is able to select items which need to be detected such as guns and/or small knives, Laptop computers, SIMMs and processors, copper, brass etc while ignoring other harmless metal objects. The program can be changed in second. Another unique feature is the range of site settings that include adjustments for metal in flooring or dry walls.

Also available is the unique Detection Enhancement Option. This allows customised detection profiles to be created for advanced weapon and asset protection applications. A program called Identiscan analyses metal objects that are passed through the detector. It generates a character signature for each object. Once a signature has been created for an object, its detection response can be precisely manipulated. Difficult-to-detect ferrous, nonferrous, stainless steel or composite objects can be specifically targeted, while ignoring other metal objects. This has opened up a huge market in asset protection, says Morris Maram, MD of Emergency Reaction Services.
