Technical Specifications

  • Temperatures:
    Operating: -4° F (-20° C) to +122° F (50° C)
    Humidity to 95% non condensing
    Storage: -40° F (-40° C) to 158° F (70° C)
  • Power
    Fully automatic 100 to 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hertz, 24 watts; no rewiring, switching or adjustments required.
  • Weatherproofing / Foreign Object Protection Standards
    Meets IP 31, IEC Standard. "Degrees of Protection provided by Enclosures," IEC 529.
  • Interference Suppression
    100% sensor coil Faraday shielding; RFI interference reduced with hardware; special Garrett built-in circuitry for noise suppression and ignoring x-ray monitors. Physical interference minimized by coil design and circuitry.
  • Traffic Counter
    Built-in and resettable with current reading available on LCD panel.
  • Synchronization
    Multiple channels permit several MT 5500s and other Garrett detectors to operate simultaneously in close proximity.
  • Alarms
    Ready light indicates unit is operational; alarm lights and audible alarms are activated when the target amount of metal is detected; location of alarm lights on left and right side of display combined with variable tone indicates which side of the person the target is located.
  • Tamper-Proof
    Dual-level access codes required to set or change all sensitivity settings and detection programs; one level for use by supervisors in selecting programs and sensitivity and the other for initial set-up and overall control; non-resettable sequence code logs all changes made whenever sensitivity codes are accessed. An audible alarm reports unauthorized attempts at access.
  • Infrared Sensor
    Improves analysis of detection signal; increases throughput; helps eliminate "false alarms" and also provides accurate traffic counter.
  • Control Outputs
    Solid state switches (low voltage AC or DC) for operating external alarms and control devices.
  • Masking
    Programs designed to eliminate the problem of dissimilar targets canceling each other.
  • Construction
    Attractive scratch and mar-resistant laminate with resilient end caps; control panel and cross members made of heavy duty aluminum.
  • Warranty
    Limited 24 months, parts and labor.
