Compact, Elegant, Robust and Ergonomic
The PD140N features a special ergonomic design consisting of an offset hand grip which ensures that the operator’s hand does not interfere with the sensitive detection area. Special care has gone into the mechanical design of the detector. Absence of sharp edges or corners allows the detector to be passed smoothly over the inspected area without getting caught in buttons, buckles, folds or other parts of clothing.
NIJ standard 0602.02 Compliant
The technical features of the detector comply with the NIJ standard 0602.02 and the new NIJ draft standard 0602.03. The PD140N has uniform sensitivity to magnetic and non-magnetic targets including those made of stainless steel. At the same time the detector offers excellent body-effect compensation and has high immunity to external disturbance from electromagnetic and mechanical sources.
Full Digital Design
The PD140N is fully digital. Electronic functions include a magnetic field transmitter-receiver based on Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, a digital operator interface and an external communication over the incorporated USB port. This design, combined with a special printed antenna, ensures consistent performance, very high reliability and calibration-free operations.
Advanced Control Panel
The control panel with switches and warning lights is made from high-thickness silicon guaranteeing high degree of protection to make the PD140N suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
Advanced Alarm Indication
The alarm signalling modes include: optical alarm which is fixed or is proportional to the intensity of the detection signal; acoustic alarm with a constant tone or a tone which is proportional to the size of the object detected; vibration alarm signal. It is also possible for the safety manager or the checkpoint supervisor to lock one or more operator commands.
Extended Continuous Operation Time
The PD140N metal detector is powered by two AA-size NiMH batteries with a battery life of over 100 hours. A Low Power Mode is automatically activated during pauses, extending the battery life up to 200 hours. An internal circuit optimizes battery recharging which takes less than five hours.
