Walk-through metal detectors are commonly used in security screening applications to detect metallic objects that may be carried by individuals. These detectors are capable of detecting a wide range of metallic objects, including:
- Weapons: Walk-through metal detectors can detect various types of weapons, including guns, knives, and other sharp objects.
- Jewelry: Metal detectors are sensitive enough to detect even small metal objects, such as jewelry, watches, and belt buckles.
- Electronic Devices: Walk-through metal detectors can detect electronic devices such as cell phones, laptops, and tablets.
- Coins and Keys: Metal detectors can detect small metallic objects such as coins and keys that may be carried by individuals.
- Other metallic objects: Walk-through metal detectors can also detect other metallic objects such as tools, zippers, and buttons.
It’s important to note that walk-through metal detectors can only detect metallic objects, and they cannot detect non-metallic items such as plastic or ceramic weapons. Some advanced metal detectors may also be able to differentiate between various types of metals, such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, to reduce false alarms.
