Weatherproofing / Foreign Object Protection Standards Meets IP 55, IEC Standard. "Degrees of Protection provided by Enclosures," IEC 60529
Tamper-Proof All detection electronics can be secured behind a key-lock door in the Overhead Cap Assembly.
Dual-level access codes require to or changes all sensitivity settings and detection programs;
one level for use by supervisors in selecting programs and sensitivity and the other for initial set-up and overall control;
non re-settable sequence code logs all changes made whenever sensitivity codes are accessed.
Audible alarm reports any unauthorized attempt at access.
All connectors are keyed to ensure proper connections.
Construction Rugged, heavy-duty 3/32" armor aluminum plates with resilient corner caps for protection against maximum physical abuse.
Control Outputs Solid state switches (low voltage AC or DC) for operating external alarms and control devices.
Synchronization Multiple channels permit several MS 3500s and other Garrett detectors to operate simultaneously in close proximity
Interference Suppression 100% sensor coil Faraday shielding; RFI interference reduced with hardware; special Garrett built-in circuitry for noise suppression and ignoring x-ray monitors. Physical interference minimized by coil design and circuitry
Alarms Ready light indicates unit is operational; alarm lights and audible alarms are activated when the target amount of metal is detected.
Masking Programs designed to eliminate the problem of dissimilar targets canceling each other.
