Rapiscan Systems has announced the launch of its Metor 6S Walk-through Metal Detector. The state-of-the art metal detector is able to detect small ferrous and non-ferrous items, such as disposable prison razors and razor blade pieces, metal shanks, handcuff keys, detonator caps, jewellery, coins, and microprocessor and memory chips. Applications of the Metor 6S range from inmate and visitor screening in corrections environments to access control in mints and electronics, jewellery and associated manufacturing plants.
Compliant with National Institute of Justice Standard 0601.02, the Metor 6S increases safety in prisons and jails by efficiently detecting small metal objects that can be used as weapons or for weapon construction, even when hidden in body cavities. When used in manufacturing and distribution facilities to protect small, valuable assets, the Metor 6S raises profitability by deterring employee theft.
“In today’s challenging security environment, customers are looking for affordable, efficient and reliable solutions to their security needs,” said Peter Kant, executive vice president, Rapiscan Systems. “Built using the latest technology, the Metor 6S’ enhanced security features provide reliable threat detection in demanding high sensitivity screening environments."
Along with advanced security features, the Metor 6S is easy to install and operate, includes a random alarm function and intelligent traffic counters for reliable statistics. Additionally, enhanced features such as preset detection programs, an automated frequency function and automated sensitivity and floor sensitivity functions allow for easier usability.
