CS 5000 - Walk Through Metal Detector

The CS 5000 is one of the industry's most economical and effective walk-through metal detectors. Its microprocessor technology offers greater sensitivity for detecting weapons from the archway to the floor. It is constructed with attractive scratch and mar-resistant laminate with resilient end caps to endure high-volume security checkpoint usage.

Overhead Control Unit LCD Display, alarm lights, LED bar graphs and control touchpads plus all wiring, connections and electronics are integrated into a single lockable overhead compartment which eliminates exposure of wires and external control box.

Microprocessor Controlled State of the art microprocessors ensure maximum sensitivity and flexible programming.

Detection Field Unique coil design offers multidimensional detection field with total uniformity both horizontally and vertically. This design, plus a choice of three levels of ankle level boost, eliminates traditional hot spots and weak signals. Target detection is precise regardless of its location in the archway.

Audible and Visual Alarms Audible alarm and red LED Alarm Lights indicate metal has been detected. The Red LED alarms light appears even when the audible alarm has been turned OFF. Green READY LIGHT indicates the unit has full power and is ready for operation.

Regulatory Information

The CS 5000 meets Electrical Safety and Compatibility Requirements for CE, FCC, CSA, IEC, ICNIRP and IEEE.

The CS 5500 meets U.S. and International regulatory requirements for electromagnetic safety. Extensive research has found no information that would indicate Garrett products have adverse effects on pregnancy, medical devices or magnetic recording media. However, directives by physicians and medical device manufacturers regarding metal detectors should be followed.
