Accessories & Extras

The CASSEL In MEAT is a critical control point in many cases. It is therefore important to check the functionality of the detector at regular intervals. We offer the appropriate test accessories or extended functions for this purpose.

Signalling devices are available as well as adapted frame constructions.

Air pressure monitoring
Reports an error if the pressure is too low for the functionality of the reject valve
Reject monitoring
End position sensing for the ejection cylinder, software module reports error if the ejection piston hangs, clip signal is suppressed
The inlet tube is equipped with a T-piece and a sealing cap for inserting the test ball. Tube is 230mm long instead of 160mm. The pipe pump must be stopped before the sealing cap is opened
Test balls
Test balls, diameter 10 mm made of plastic POM, with embedded metal ball made of iron, brass and stainless steel, certified Ball size, metal type and certificate number are embedded in the test ball
Test bars
made of white, flexible plastic, certified, with embedded metal ball made of iron, ball size / metal type engraved
The SHARKNET® software connects METAL SHARK® metal detectors to a central computer and offers central storage of all operating data as well as batch and alarm documentation for HACCP and IFS conformity.
more stable frame construction possible
Signalling devices (optical/acoustic)
Stacking lights and signal horns/sirens available in different versions and IP protection types
