Advanced Detection Systems Inc., a world leader in manufacturing metal detection systems, is pleased to announce its new SurroundScan Protector HD metal detector. Operating with patented digital technology, the SurroundScan Protector HD is designed to work in difficult applications where downtime is not an option and performance is everything. The metal detector is manufactured with heavy duty painted steel that works in the toughest environment. The patented digital electronics continually monitors production and compensates for conditions such as conveyor vibrations, product variations and production equipment movements near the metal detector. These production conditions are automatically compensated by the microprocessor, which in the end greatly enhances the metal detector’s sensitivity to smaller tramp metal contaminates and long-term reliability.
With its single platform microprocessor with password protection and heavy duty construction, the SurroundScan Protector HD is unmatched in the industry, “Advanced Detection Systems has a rich and proven history of supplying SurroundScan metal detectors to a wide range of applications. Adding digital technology to the industrial metal detector product line just made sense towards achieving our goal of being the premier technology driven manufacturer” explained Wayne Eide, Marketing Manager for Advanced Detection Systems. The Protector HD comes with Acculearn technology which accurately adjusts for product effect, especially highly conductive products. As a result, the metal eliminates the nuisance false trips associated with metal detectors. “The Protector HD eliminates erroneous product and ambient signals and offers consistent detection results. The digital technology takes metal detection sensitivity to a new level of performance, especially in very difficult industrial applications. In the end, the SurroundScan Protector HD will achieve better sensitivity and have less cost outlay associated with maintaining a metal detector”, Wayne explained further.
Its enhanced sensitivity design is preferred to analog technology and sets the standard for detection in the industry. With the SurroundScan Protector HD unique design, even the most conductive product and adverse environmental conditions are eliminated providing mining, aggregate, cement, recycling and plastic regrind operations enormous savings versus costly repairs due to less than perfect electronic adjustments and unreliable metal detector performance. The SurroundScan Protector HD metal detector is constructed of all welded, heavy duty metal and is shipped completely assembled and ready for installation. The SurroundScan Protector HD is easy to install, operate and maintain. Standard features of the SurroundScan Protector HD metal detector include an easy to use touch screen interface with color graphic, continuous product flow analysis, automatic balance control, system ready and detect lamps, and metal splice detection circuits. Optional upgrades available are remote display, exterior audio alarm and metal locator disc and spray marker kits.
