The Thermo Scientific APEX 500 highperformance metal detector once again raises the industry standard for performance, stability and reliability. It incorporates a unique (patent pending) multi-coil design to make magnetic flux more consistent in the aperture, improving signal levels resulting in the highest level of detection capability. This innovation is combined with new shielding techniques to reduce product effect and costly waste caused by false rejects.
APEX 500’s unrivaled performance is due to state-of-the-art electronics and advanced digital signal processing (DSP) technology first introduced by Thermo Fisher Scientific over 20 years ago. New detection algorithms are employed as well as improved noisereduction filters, product phase-tracking techniques and balance/recovery schemes. AuditCheck™, a unique and patented device that validates performance of the metal detector is available as an option. All these capabilities combine to make the APEX 500 the most sensitive metal detection system available today.
Supported by the global Thermo Fisher service network, the APEX 500 meets the reliability, environmental and hygienic needs of the food industry. It has been designed for failsafe operation with built-in fault notification and has been fully tested to meet IP66/NEMA 4X/ATEX requirements. Only food grade materials are employed in construction including the stainless steel case and ABS control panel.
