Fortress Technology has devised a new high-performance metal detector, ICON. It features a new touchscreen front panel, which has been designed to be ’future-proof’, as well as having the ability to be easily retrofitted to older models in Fortress’ Phantom series. The firm said the new detector delivers fast accurate detection of metal contaminants and detailed data collection. Information such as product configurations, reject and faults are stored in an onboard database and are accessible via a USB or wired ethernet. The new model comes with multilevel password protection, which controls access to specific areas of the system for different users.
