The Garrett MT 5500 30" Walk-Through Metal Detector is a popular walk-through metal detector because it provides maximum throughput with exceptional multi-dimensional scanning. The MT 5500 meets the demanding needs of security professionals worldwide who trust its ability to maintain patron flow rate with minimal alarms.
The MT 5500 uses multi-dimensional scanning, which ensures maximum throughput and uniform screening with a minimum of false alarms. Multiple coil circuitry with dual alarm lights informs operators on which side of the detector the target is located. With "hot spots" eliminated, the unit's detection field is uniform throughout the archway and false alarms are significantly minimized. The Access Control Panel is designed for use by authorized personnel with specific security codes. It allows authorized users to change settings such as Program and Sensitivity.
Security of the detectors settings is maintained with a non-resettable sequence code, which indicates every attempt at access to the settings. A tamper alarm sounds within 10 seconds after the Access touchpad is pressed unless a proper access code is entered. The MT 5500 includes 20 standard programs, which are maintained in an electrically erasable non-volatile memory for the ultimate in security application versatility.
The unit maintains all settings even when disconnected from power and does not require recalibration when the unit is turned OFF and back ON. No battery is required for memory retention. When the unit is in operation, a self-test of all systems is performed continuously with any failures or problems reported on the LCD. LCD display, alarm lights, LED bar graphs and control touchpad's plus all wiring, connections and electronics are integrated into a single overhead compartment, which eliminates exposure of wires and external control box.
