SSMD Metal Detector - Specification
The SSMD is a high-performance handheld metal detector designed to meet the exact requirements of the security industry. Typical users will include body search for offensive weapons in crowd control, airport and border security, checking parcels and letters for metal objects and anywhere that hidden metal needs to be detected.
The SSMD operates on one 9-volt standard or rechargeable battery. To install the battery, slide off the battery cover and place the battery into its compartment while matching the +/- symbols.
Turn the unit on by pushing the on/off switch until it clicks on and the green LED is lit. The detector is now operational although an increase in sensitivity and depth range can be achieved by turning the sensitivity adjuster until the red LED is lit and a constant audio tune is heard. Turn the sensitivity adjuster (anti-clockwise) until the red LED just goes out and the tone fades. The detector is now turned for optimum sensitivity and depth range.
Holding the unit with the detection face towards the surface, sweep backward and forwards continuously at a height of 10-30mm above the area to be scanned.
The presence of metal will be indicated by the audio warning tone and the red light coming on. If the detector is held still over a metal object the detection signal will automatically reduce, therefore it is important that the unit is continually scanning the surface when being used.
The sensitivity of the scanner is determined primarily by the size, shape, and composition of the object to be detected.
Maximum Detection Range
|object||low sensitivity||optimum sensitivity|
|38 caliber handgun||15cm||20cm|
Low Sensitivity Operation
- Press the low sensitivity switch during detection, the scanner will then only respond to bigger metal objects such as a handgun, knife, etc and will not respond to small metals such as a coin, key, hatpin etc. DO NOT release the low sensitivity switch until you complete low sensitivity detection.
Rechargeable Battery Socket
- You may use a 9-volt rechargeable battery to power the detector.
- It takes four to six hours to fully charge the battery. The battery charger socket is located at the side of the detector.
- NOTE: Turn off the detector when charging it.
The detector is equipped with a vibrator button also located at the side of the detector. Vibration function should be used in noisy work situations or in places where the operator does not wish for the audio tune to be heard in his surrounding area. Press this button, vibrator works; release it and audio tune works.
If the green light goes out completely or fails to come on or if the unit is making unfamiliar audio tunes, the unit is unstable and should not be used until the battery is recharged or replaced.
If the unit is not to be used for a certain length of time it is advisable to remove the battery to avoid battery leakage which could cause serious damage to the detector.
When not in use, the detector should be stored in a dry, warm environment.
