The new Xtreme metal detector from Eriez, Erie, Penn., reportedly offers improved sensitivity, intuitive operation and reliability. The manufacturer turned to field sales engineers and customers to guide the development of the new generation of metal detectors.


The new interface features a full QWERTY keyboard, robust auto set-up, dedicated reject log and vivid display, borrowing from  smartphones in its design elements. The Xtreme metal detector has greater sensitivity with its multiple frequency range and vibration immunity, according to Eriez. An integrated beacon and configurable inputs and outputs ease installation, and maintenance is simplified thanks to easier access to wiring via the device’s large control opening.


Multiple Xtreme metal detectors can be remotely monitored and controlled from a single PC, enabling users to track and update each system. Eriez said its new Xtreme unit is the first in a line of metal detectors that will add even more enhancements as times goes on, thanks to system flexibility and ability to customize the product to match specific applications.
