Handheld metal detector.
Rapiscan Security Products of Hawthorne, California, has introduced
a handheld metal detector that can handle tough environments and
constant use. The Rapiscan IPD-9 is solid state throughout, except for a
minimum pressure on/off micro-switch. It can withstand at least 10
million operations and incorporates linear detection technology in order
to ensure that all metals can be detected in any angle or plane.
Extremely sensitive, it emits a clear, audible alarm, which is combined
with a visual LED display. It is effective when moving towards or across
the target and can quickly and accurately locate the target. Power is
supplied by an easily connected 9-volt battery. 331
