Controller METAL SHARK 1 for CASSEL metal detectors


The METAL SHARK® 1 offers exceptional metal detection, accuracy, stability and precise product effect compensation. Auto calibration allows easy and fast teach-in of product effects. Optimized product properties for dry, wet, salty, meat and aluminum film make adjustment for new products extremely easy and reliable. Multi-channel technology for optimum detection of all types of metal: ferrous, non-ferrous (such as aluminium or copper) and stainless steel.

Auto calibration: The Metal Detector easily and quickly “learns” product features, allowing for compensation for product conductivity, and leads to much greater sensitivity. Its pre-set features are intended for dry, wet, salty and meat applications, allowing for rapid and user-friendly set up of new products. After initial set-up, no further adjustment of electronics is needed, eliminating costly and timely routine maintenance and service.

Phase tracking allows the Metal Detector to compensate and readjust for product conductivity, leading to increased sensitivity.

Outstanding metal detection: Digital noise filters eliminate any undesired signals.

Multi-channel technology allows for optimum detection of ferrous, nonferrous (e.g., aluminum or copper) and stainless steel contaminants.

Extreme durability: Cassel′s sensor head is designed for long-term reliable and consistent operation in extreme and harsh conditions. Unlike competitor models, Cassel′s sensor head is fully encapsulated in a solid epoxy block, which seals off this important component from outside hazards. The METAL SHARK® is ideal for difficult applications, including processing in wet or very humid environments.
