The Technology:

Metrasens’ patented core technology platform has allowed us to design the most portable full body metal detection system available worldwide. The technology is based on ferromagnetic detection which can be thought of as ferrous only metal detection. The large majority of items of interest e.g. knives, guns and other weapons do contain significant amounts of ferrous material. The technology is entirely passive and so presents no health and safety issues to any subject being scanned. All of our products have been designed to be simple to set-up, operate and be intuitive to work with. Metrasens works closely with each new customer application to customize its solution to meet your particular operational requirements.
