The PD240C features a special ergonomic design consisting of an offset hand grip which ensures that the operators 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.
The technical features of the detector comply with and exceed the NIJ standard 0602.02 and the new NIJ draft standard 0602.03. The PD240C 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.
The PD240C is fully digital. Electronic functions include a inspection field transmitter-receiver based on Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology, a digital operator interface and external communications over the incorporated USB port.
The control panel with switches and warning lights is made from high-thickness silicon guaranteeing high degree of protection to make the PD240C suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
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.
The PD240C metal detector is powered by two AA-size NiMH batteries with a battery life of over 55 hours. A Low Power Mode is automatically activated during pauses, extending the battery life up to 100 hours. An internal circuit optimises battery recharging which takes less than five hours.
The metal detector casing is made from next-generation technical polymers. These plastics offer high chemical resistance and mechanical strength ensuring a long detector life even in heavy duty conditions.
