SPHINX Vortex S - metal detector (CE compliant)

The metal detector SPHINX VORTEX S is the latest development that combines all the best search and performance characteristics. The highly sensitive eddy current microprocessor handheld metal detector SPHINX VORTEX S is designed for searching and detecting metal objects during personal inspection, baggage control and correspondence.
Sensitivity in this model can be considered a reference (for example, a medium-sized pistol is detected at a distance of 23 cm), to which all world manufacturers aspire, but the sensitivity without the absence of false
positives is not an effective function. So in the VORTEX S model, the function of protection from a number of operating radio stations and thermal compensation is implemented, which corrects sensitivity in real time depending on the ambient temperature. The effective operating range for this model is from -37 to +70 degrees. In this case, there is the possibility of manual correction of sensitivity depending on the tasks (this function is available through the engineering mode). An example is the search for sim cards from mobile phones or the opposite solution, to concentrate search tasks on dangerous objects, a pistol, a knife. 
The performance in this model is the maximum for this class of equipment, so the consumption of the device is only 3 mA, which allows without turning off, use the device for more than 100 hours, using an alkaline battery or about 400 hours from a lithium-ion battery
