Features & Benefits

  • Rugged heavy-duty steel construction is designed to take a beating and keep on running. No need to worry about replacing coils every time they get hit; they are encased in an armored chassis protecting the coils and the internal wiring and electronics. Chassis is designed to fit into standard sized rails with minimal modifications and a removable side plate (no need to cut a belt – or unsplice it – to install).
  • Patented digital technology ensures that the detector will work in any environment. Tune out small pieces that won’t cause harm and only detect the larger pieces that could damage downstream equipment.
  • Set-it-and-forget-it easy-to-use digital operator interface eliminates nuisance trips unnecessarily stopping your operation.
  • AccuLearn technology quickly learns product characteristics – in as little as two passes – to eliminate false trips caused by product variability.
  • Auto-balances and auto-learns product eliminating rebalancing procedures and the guesswork associated with analog “radio knob” controls.
  • All welded construction provides a durable and stable system for consistent metal detection.
  • A variety of metal marking systems are available help operators locate the metal remove it and get back to business.
  • Programmable contacts for full PLC integration and reject-device control for automated control of waste gates or belt plow systems.

SurroundScan Protector HD Metal Detectors can be built to your application specifications and sized to meet your unique needs.
