Metal Detector High Accuracy [M6-h series]

Metal Detector

High Sensitivity [M6-h series]
This product has been discontinued
M6-h Series Metal Detector detects foreign body such as ferrous, stainless steel and aluminum.
Unrivaled digital signal processing provides stable and high sensitivity.

Enhanced Performance - M6-h delivers high detection sensitivity and stability on your production line.

Anritsu’s advanced technology enhances the detection of contaminants by up to two ranks compared with conventional models.

Advanced Digital Signal Processing
Built-in digital signal processing (patent pending) better isolates product effect and minimizes its impact on detection. Outstanding detection made easy.

Advanced Digital Signal Processing

Improved Auto-Learn provides reliable, repeatable performance
Improvement in detection and performance were developed in-house, using our 50+ years of industry experience. The auto-learn process optimizes the best phase, frequency and detection algorithms for the dual simultaneous frequencies.

Improved Auto-Learn provides reliable, repeatable performance

Vibration and electrical noise resistant
Metal detectors look for fluctuations within magnetic fields when the product passes through the detector head. Since the magnetic fields are affected by external sources such as floor vibration and inverters from nearby machines, a metal detector must be designed to handle these challenges. With this in mind, Anritsu's detection heads are designed to provide high sensitivity without sacrificing repeatability and reliability.

Vibration and electrical noise resistant

The FOCUS function
Metal contaminants come in all shapes and sizes such as wires, shavings and flakes. The FOCUS function delivers enhanced detection of those hard-to-detect real world contaminants.

*Detection enhancement may vary depending on contaminant types.


Designed with ease of operation

The conveyor belt can be easily removed or attached without tools. The direct drive system (washdown models only) allows quick and easy cleaning.

Tool free belt removal.

By using an automatic belt tensioner, belt adjustments are eliminated. The washdown models also use a meander-less belt to eliminate any tracking issues.

No tension adjustment necessary

High sensitivity detection of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals

Anritsu's patented dual-frequency technology is optimized for both ferrous and non-ferrous metals simultaneously.
