Density Discrimination: The Metal-Tec can help you determine the threat level of the metal/weapon being detected, based upon the object size. The distance at which the Metal-Tec detects an object can help the officer determine the object's size. Larger objects such as handguns can be detected approximately 3 to 4 inches away. Smaller objects such as razor blades can be detected approximately 1 to 2 inches away, and metal foil (which may contain drugs) can be detected approximately 1/8 to 1 inch away based on the size or amount of foil. Vibration Signature: The Metal-Tec can determine the approximate physical shape; (length and width) of a metal/weapon being detected. After detecting a metal/weapon take the Metal-Tec and turn it on end, pointing it toward the object. Now move the Metal-Tec up and down (vertically) and side to side (horizontally) over the object being detected. By observing where the vibration starts and stops while moving the unit over the object you can determine its approximate length and width. Specifications for the Metal-Tec 1400: Detection: Triaxial detection field, uniformly detects ferrous & nonferrous metals inches away, in all directions regardless of the position relative to the subject. Dimensions: L = 7.9'" (20.0 cm) W = 1.75'" (4.5cm) H = 1.30" (3.3cm) Weight: 8.8 ounces (249.4 grams) Sensitivity control: Factory set and calibrated Controls: Single control (Power On/Off) Battery: Standard 9 volt alkaline (provides 2000 average 15 second searches) Operating Temperatures: -15F (-26C) to +130F (+54C) Humidity: 98% Non condensing Case Material: High impact ABS plastic with a tensile strength of 6800 PSI (ASTM D 638) Operating Frequency: 360 kHz Regulatory Standards: FCC Part 15 (ID#NJ21200METAL-TEC), meets OSHA CFR-1910097a2I, IEEE C95.1 - 1992 * Specifications subject to change without notice! The Metal-Tec was designed to be used as an enhancement of the hand during searches; it can assist in locating with pinpoint accuracy, metal objects, which may have been otherwise overlooked. The Metal-Tec requires only one hand for operation leaving the other hand available for more important tasks. Metal-Tec can be held between the forefinger and the thumb freeing up the other fingers so they can be used during a search or frisking of the suspect. The Metal-Tec can find a metal object, and pinpoint its location without the need for a constant sweeping motion. There is no adjustment necessary on the unit, sensitivity is factory preset and automatically compensates for temperature changes which may affect sensitivity. Another feature of Metal-Tec allows the 9 volt battery to be inserted in either direction (non polarity sensitive) making battery replacement in the field easy and uncomplicated. Metal-Tec also includes a low battery indicator, which was designed to notify the user that the battery has been depleted to a level, which no longer meets operating specifications. The low battery indicator causes the unit to constantly vibrate as soon as the power is turned on, which notifies the user to replace the battery. This feature removes the possibility of the unit being used with a weak battery, which may give incorrect detection results. The heavy-duty Nylon holster contains a metal snap, to allow easy removal of the holster from the duty belt. The snap also serves as a test feature to indicate proper operation of the Metal-Tec when removed from the holster, if it continues to vibrate, this indicates a low battery condition. If the unit is left on when it is returned to the holster, Metal-Tec will start to vibrate in the holster to remind you to turn it off. The Metal-Tec includes a heavy-duty Nylon holster and vehicle mounting kit. Using the self-adhesive Velcro mounting kit allows the Metal-Tec to be mounted to the prisoner cage, door panel, windows, organizers, radio console, or any smooth surface in the vehicle. This allows the officer to switch between carrying it on the belt or vehicle mounting for easy access. Made by Torfino
