It is critical to protect your employees and students the best you can. Secure your building with the best. The Y-7560 Metal detector is safe, effective, and efficient. Invest where quality matters.
Pinpoint Zone Detection
- 33 zones precisely target locations on the left, center, and right side of the body.
- Independent detection and LEDs display on the right, center, and left of the zone for as small as one coin.
- If the metal detected is on the left, the left LED will light up. If on the right side, the right LED will light up. If detected in the center, both left and right will light up. • Automatically records the number of people passed through, alarmed and strength of interference on the LCD.
Accurate Detection with Anti-Interference
- Digital left, and right balanced technology helps prevent false positives or omitted alarms with significantly reducing interference.
- Uses a processor-based continuous wave multiple sensor measurement system with automatic self-diagnostics built in.
- The metal detection gates can be operated either through the remote control or by the operation directly on the panel.
- Doors can be put side by side at intervals of only 50cm without causing interference.
- Each zones sensitivity can be adjusted separately, ranging from 0 (lowest) to 400 (highest). Either through direct panel operation or the use of the remote.
- Password protected only to allow authorized persons to operate or change the configuration. • There are three security levels available to differentiate between operations and configuration.
Harmless to the Human Body
- Generates low-intensity magnetic fields that are harmless to people with pacemakers, pregnant women, magnetic storage devices, or recording tapes.
Considerations from Department Homeland Security
WTMDs play a specific role in security for detecting concealed weapons. Indoor, fixed systems are typically installed as checkpoints at:
- Transportation venues (e.g., airports, train, bus, ship boarding areas);
- Government buildings, including courthouses and military installations;
- Private buildings; and
- Temporary, indoor systems may also be set up for special events.
- Outdoor WTMDs installations may be either fixed or temporary, and may be used at:
- Sporting events;
- Concerts; and
- Special events.
All people entering a venue are directed toward the WTMD and typically place their bags, coats, and metal objects in a basket for screening by an X-ray machine. One person at a time passes through the WTMD, and if an alarm sounds, the individual will generally be screened with a metal-detecting security wand.2 Thus, the WTMD is only one part of a larger security system that includes additional screening equipment, security personnel to operate the equipment, operational procedures, and a secure facility perimeter.
Those purchasing a WTMD for the first time should be aware of additional considerations:
- Placement: WTMD installation requires careful planning of layout to allow sufficient space for people waiting to be scanned and for secondary inspections after an alarm. Nearby metal structures, such as plumbing and air ducts, or nearby sources of electromagnetic energy, such as an elevator motor, can cause interference. These environmental interferences can be mitigated by properly siting the detector and adjusting the instrument sensitivity. Simultaneous operation of multiple WTMDs also requires frequency adjustments and adequate physical separation.
- Testing: New WTMDs require initial acceptance tests to verify that they detect the threats required by the facility and routine performance tests to confirm that they continue to work as expected. Both types of tests are used to optimize the sensitivity settings of the detector to minimize false positives (alarms for nonthreat items) and false negatives (failure to alarm for threat items).
- Throughput: Although manufacturers of WTMDs may specify a device throughput (i.e., number of people that can be scanned per unit time), overall throughput is affected by the experience of the operator, the arrival rate of people, the compliance and preparation of people to be scanned (e.g., removing metal items as they approach the detector), and the availability of personnel and equipment to adjudicate alarms.
Metal Detectors are used in may NYC schools.
"More than 90,000 public high school students in New York City are scanned every day by metal detectors. The rate of students who are scanned varies by borough and racial demographics."
"... according to reports in the New York Post and the Daily Mail, 712 weapons were found by metal detectors in schools during the 2013-2014 school year. If every high school student currently at a scanning school was scanned each school day, that would amount to 15,964,020 scans over a school year — or one dangerous item found for about every 23,034 scans."
