The METAL-TEC was designed to be used as
an enhancement of the hand during searches; it can assist in locating
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 fore
finger 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
There is no adjustment necessary on the
unit, sensitivity is factory preset and automatically compensates
for environmental variables such as humidity and temperature.
Another feature of the METAL-TEC allows
the 9 volt battery to be inserted in either direction (non polarity
sensitive) making battery replacement in the field quick and easy.
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, the METAL-TEC can 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.
