THE BEST FERROMAGNETIC DETECTOR FOR ZONE II & III PRE-SCREENING


Ferromagnetic Detector


The Latest Advancement in Ferromagnetic Detection for MRI Safety


Unlike other detectors that mainly focus on the security market (jails, prisons, mental institutions, etc…), FerrAlert™ Detection Systems are exclusively designed for MRI Safety. FerrAlert™ SOLO is Installed in the controlled pre-screening zone. It is the highest sensitivity, full-body patient and personnel scanner available to MRI providers. 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 due to its unique and patented sensor technology.

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


SELF-SCREENING
or supervised screening is consistent, unambiguous and simple


NO-TOUCH ACTIVATION
safeguards against dangerous cross-contamination

 

PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
suppresses false alarms and warnings while providing the highest sensitivity to ferromagnetic threats. The use of 12 sensors ensures uniform sensitivity and detection reliability from head to toe.


REDUCES ALARM FATIGUE
by not producing acoustic alarm unles the presence of human body is detected (body heat sensor)
