The following paper is both informative and helpful for metal detector users with an interest in insight into the basic theory and electronics of metal detectors. You don't need to understand all the science of how a metal detector finds instructions supplied by the manufacturer and has his metal detector turned on. more! Quick Navigation. Why do people go metal detecting? 2. How To Get Started Metal Detecting. 5. What is the best metal detector? 8. Where to Metal Detect.

If more metal is detected during the rejection time, then the rejection time will be increased accordingly. The shift time can be set between 10 ms to ms. The acknowledgement can also be carried out by a super ordinate control.

The lowest required height should be selected feeding only the carrying run through the search channel. SHOCK MOUNTS The metal detector comes with four factory-installed shock mounts to lessen the effect of belt structure vibrations on the metal detector and to isolate the metal detector electrically from the belt structure. The metal detector is attached to a separate console or to the belt frame using the shock mounts.

This decreases the aperture width and height by approx. Not included in this are the belt structure not the cross connections within this structure and any included search coil console.

Remember if you walk thru will not detect this you are not going to hand wand the person and this threat is coming into your building. I saw this happen when a women hid an exacto blade in her bra and when the judge sentenced her she started cutting herself. The Judge was very upset and wanted to know how this blade got in his courtroom and that is we got to remind him about how he would not let us raise the sensitivity of the walk through metal detector to detect this exact type of threat.

Cuff key A Cuff is a must have test object if you are in a facility that handles prisoners.

You DO NOT want this getting into your courtrooms and you need to make sure you can detect this type of threat. The honest to goodness truth is that your walk thru metal detector is not typically going to be able to detect this so you would again never hand wand it is coming in. They do manufacture walk thrus with very high sensitivity prison units that can detect a cuff key so if you do not want this in your facility you need one of those units.

The very common walk thrus that you see in most facilities cannot detect a cuff key. There are different types but the most common and hardest to detect is below: Blasting caps have very little metallic content and are very hard to detect in a walk thru metal detector. They come is 3 different types based on their metal content and sizes, Electrical copper and aluminum caps and non-electrical aluminum caps.

Step 2: Get the Hand Wands to Test: Trying to get all these units to test is easy and you just need to contact the manufactures and tell them you want a unit to test. If they say no well move onto the next guy because when it comes to hand wands there are a ton of manufactures. You can also call around to your fellow Security Professionals and borrow one of their units to test. There are about 10 or more hand wands on the market so try and test as many as possible can so you get a very good sample size.

Step 3: Conduct the testing: Make a checklist of all of your items and run your test for each hand wand. The reason you want to know this is because when you download a hand wand the minimum distance that it detects all of your test objects in the distance you MUST tell your officers to hand wand a person put this in your Post Orders.

The key here is to repeat the test the exact same way each time and I recommended a minimum of test per test object to verify you get the same response. Most people do not know this but you need to test the hand wand against the test object at the following locations: Back of the Paddle 2. Middle of the paddle 3.

Top of the paddle Hands wands will have varying levels of detection on the paddle and typically the top of the paddle you have to get closer to the object to detect. The can play a role in you scanning distance you put out to your Officers based on how the unit you selects performs. If you do not know this and your guys are scanning 2 inches away from the person, and the top will only detect at one inch you could miss a threat.

If you really want to see how the unit match up build an inexpensive test rig so you can measure the distance the threats alarm.

All you need is about 3 foot of a 2X4 and wooden ruler and some rubber bands. The below is the test rig I used to do my testing and it worked great. You will find that almost all of the units on the market can detect all of the test objects but some of them will have a hard time with the very small items i. I have tested most units and found that the less expensive models you have to get under 1 inch away from the very small threats to detect.

Once you have completed the testing you can now factor in the different features on the units.

As you get more features like vibration or a pin point capability the cost increases drastically. You will also find that the lower cost units are not built as rugged as the more expensive ones.

You just need to make a decision based on your needs and the threat you are trying to detect. Once you know which ones can detect the best you can factor how much you are willing to spend for the detector? Also do not get too wrapped up about a unit with pinpoint capability.

I have tested many units and most can detect from the tip Pinpoint. You can shop around as there are a ton of companies that sell hand wands and you can get a good price by checking with each one. I have found that I can typically get them to come down if I show them the same unit from another company for less. The most important thing you need to remember is that there is a diehard relationship between your hand wand and walk through metal detector.

They work together and the walk through is what tells your officers they need to hand wand a person.

Page 3. KG Edition If another coil is used to measure the magnetic field acting as a magnetometer , the change in the magnetic field due to the metallic object can be detected. If we as- sume that the soil properties exhibit only random varia- tions around a location-independent mean, and that target echoes are present only in a small amount of data, then we can take the mean of a large number of traces as a mea- sure of the fixed background and subtract it from the raw data.

In cases of doubt, material sample tests in our lab produce sound information.
