THE BEST FERROMAGNETIC DETECTOR FOR ZONE IV PROTECTION


Ferromagnetic Detector


The Latest Advancement in Ferromagnetic Detection for MRI Safety


Guards at the entrance into the MRI exam room, providing the most precise and reliable detection and prevention of ferromagnetic threats from entering Zone IV. FerrAlert™ Halo II Plus provides significant assistance in the prevention of serious injury to patients and staff or equipment damage. FerrAlert™ detectors are recognized to be the most accurate ferromagnetic detectors for MRI due to their exclusive location-specificity feature. FerrAlert™ detectors have been independently tested to be the most sensitive in real-world MRI environments.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY


Proprietary AMR Sensor Technology used in FerrAlert™ detectors proven to be most sensitive
in "Real World" MRI environment

KOPP Development Proprietary AMR Sensors
Pre 1990s AMR Sensors
Current Design AMR Sensors
Hall Effect Sensors
Fluxgate Sensors

Raw sensitivity is only meaningful if you are in the ocean looking for an isolated ferromagnetic object ( e.g. submarine). In such environment there are few other ferromagnetic, moving objects to interfere with sensing.
In the real environment of a hospital, where many ferromagnetic objects are moving all the time, you must be able to discriminate between "real" threats and objects that are ferromagnetic but not a threat.

FLUXGATE SENSOR DETECTION ZONE

KOPP PROPRIETARY AMR SENSOR DETECTION ZONE

UNIQUE FEATURES


PINPOINTS LOCATION
of the ferromagnetic threat allowing the Technologist to quickly and easily identify and remove it. NO invasive pat-down or hand-held detectors required.


INTELLIGENT VISUAL WARNING
is triggered by approaching ferrous objects well outside the magnet room. The greater the threat, the further away the pre-warning is activated. Ferrous objects not approaching the entrance to Zone IV do not trigger a warning. Ferrous object is not a threat, until it tries to enter the Magnet Room. No irrelevant warnings


ESCALATING ALARM STATUS
is always visible from both inside and outside the magnet room thus giving the Technologist full control. ACR and The Joint Commission require control of Zone IV at all times.


MOST FLEXIBLE INSTALLATION
for all facility architectural layouts. Mounts unobtrusively with both in-swing and out-swing MRI room doors. Alarm Indicator Lights NOT blocked by out-swinging doors.


PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
suppresses false alarms while providing the highest sensitivity to ferromagnetic threats. The use of 24 sensors and 18 detection zones ensures uniform sensitivity and detection reliability from head to toe.


REDUCES ALARM FATIGUE
by not producing acoustic alarm on moving doors (in-swing and out-swing), exit from MRI room and cross traffic.

Audio alarm is activated only at the threshold if advanced visual warning was ignored.


FERROMAGNETIC INCIDENT LOG MANAGER
is now available as an upgrade. A Continuous and Automatic Visual Record of Potential and Actual Projectile Incidents.Download F.I.L.M. Brochure
