The PD140N is a Hand Held Metal Detector that combines high reliability and ergonomics with advanced detection and operator signaling features. Effective sensitivity to all metals, full compliance with the latest Security Standards and high immunity to external metal masses are among the main peculiarities of this new device.
Compact, Elegant, Robust and Ergonomic
The PD140N hand held metal detector wand 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 wand. Absence of sharp edges or corners allows the detector wand to be passed smoothly over the inspected area without getting caught in buttons, buckles, folds or other parts of clothing.
A Dedicated Holder acts as Minimum Space Table Stand and Mains connection for Battery Charge.
NIJ standard 0602.02 Compliant
The technical features of the metal 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 metal 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.
Indoor and Outdoor Operations
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.
Long Life Rechargeable Batteries and Fast Charger
The PD140N hand held metal detector wand 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.
In low battery conditions, charging the PD140N for only 10 minutes will recover up to 4 hours of continuous 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; vibrating alarm signal. It is also possible for the safety manager or the checkpoint supervisor to block one or more operator commands.
