Metor 6E is a state-of-the-art walk-through metal detector developed for the most demanding high profile security screening applications. The unit has been developed using the latest technology to meet the strictest requirements set by the international civil aviation authorities.

Typical Metor 6E applications include passenger screening at airports and other transportation terminals as well as visitor screening in public and private buildings such as ministries, embassies and courthouses.

The Metor 6E uses a unique multi-channel technology combined with powerful processing capacity. This allows for fast collection of information from multiple metal items passing through simultaneously and accurate threat resolution based on the characteristics of the items.

Metor 6E is capable of a throughput rate of over 50 persons per minute.

2 – Dimensional Location Function

The Metor 6E has an integrated 2-dimensional location display on the exit side of the coil panels. The display indicates the location of the detected metal object(s) by pinpointing either left, right or center position of the height where the item(s) passed through the metal detector. The location display has 20 vertical and 3 horizontal segments resulting in a total resolution of 60 pinpointing segments within the unit’s aperture.

The location display has two user selectable modes: 2-dimensional or vertical. In vertical mode the vertical location of the detected item within the unit’s aperture is indicated. Timing of the location display is adjustable and the display can be enabled or disabled through the user interface.

Excellent Interference Immunity

The carefully selected operating frequencies together with effective digital filtering allow excellent immunity to electromagnetic interference. Furthermore the coil design of the Metor 6E is optimized to minimize external electromagnetic interference. Metor 6E meets with the requirements of applicable standards for Electromagnetic Compatibility. Two or more Metor 6E metal detectors can be operated in close proximity. Side-by-side use does not require synchronization cables.

Automatic Interactive Sensitivity Calibration

An automatic interactive sensitivity calibration function enables the detector’s sensitivity to be automatically selected for a specific test object. The user can simply start the “Auto Sensitivity” function and walk through the unit with each test object one at the time (minimum 3 walkthroughs are required). At the end of the process Metor 6E indicates the correct sensitivity level for detecting all the items that were passed through during this process.

Automatic Floor Sensitivity Calibration

Metor 6E has an automatic interactive floor sensitivity calibration program to help floor level calibration.

Automated Frequency Search

Metor 6E searches automatically suitable operating frequency during start-up or when the feature is activated from the user interface. This feature can be switched On or Off.

Technical Specifications

Mechanical Construction

Metor 6E coil panels use a mechanical construction which gives the whole unit an excellent durability and mechanical stability. The panels are finished in laminate with plastic location display profiles. The coil panels are equipped with integrated boots that protect the panels against floor washing liquids. The boots include holes for fixing the detector to the floor. The crosspiece is made of aluminum that provides excellent durability in applications requiring multiple installations and dismantling.

Hardware

Metor 6E has an electronics unit in a metal enclosure. The electronics unit is located inside the lockable aluminum crosspiece

Firmware

Metor 6E firmware includes weapon detection programs to meet the international requirements as well as material specific detection programs. Operations are easy to upgrade using an SD –memory card when future firmware versions are introduced.

Sensitivity

The sensitivity settings are divided to overall sensitivity and zone sensitivity.• There are 100 sensitivity steps available to adjust overall sensitivity.• The zone sensitivity of 10 different zones can be adjusted independently. The range of the zone sensitivity setting is 0 – 200 % with respect to the overall sensitivity. Sensitivity can be set either manually or automatically.

At the end of the process Metor 6E indicates the correct sensitivity level for detecting all the items that were passed through during this process.

Automatic Floor Sensitivity Calibration

Metor 6E has an Automatic interactive Floor Sensitivity Calibration Program to help floor level calibration. Program enables the detector’s floor level sensitivity to be automatically selected for a specific test object. The process is same as above but the objects are taken through at the foot/ankle level only.

Operating Frequency

Metor 6E has 10 operating frequency sets. The operating frequency sets have been carefully selected from the noise free frequency band.Automated Frequency SearchMetor 6E searches automatically suitable operating frequency during start-up or when the feature is activated from the user interface. This feature can be switched On or Off. Multiple Unit OperationTwo or more Metor 6E metal detectors can be operated in close proximity. Side-by-side use does not require synchronization cables.

Alarm Indication

Display unit indicates alarm with- Audible alarm- Alarm LED’s- Alphanumeric display with signal display relative to signal sizeIn addition, alarm is indicated with the 2-dimensional location display on the exit side of the coil panels.

Network Connection

Metor 6E is connectable to MetorNet 3 Pro Web security monitoring system through Ethernet.

Power Supply

Mains, nominal: 100 – 240 VACMains, maximum: 90 – 264 VAC
Mains frequency (nominal): 50/60 Hz
Battery (optional): 12 VDCPower consumption, typical: 31 W (AC), 26 W (DC)

The Metor 6E has the ability to adjust automatically to variations in line voltage from 90 to 264 VAC or 12 VDC without operator intervention. In an installation site where line voltage regulation is a problem, there will be no degradation in WTMD performance.

Battery Back-up Set (optional accessory)

Metor 6E can be equipped with an optional 12 VDC battery to provide up to 8 hours fully operation in case of mains voltage failure.
