The magnitude of gunfire that came from the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas, and the resulting carnage, is just one more sad reminder that we live in dangerous times. Metal detectors can help protect people and places and serve as a deterrent against the unauthorized carrying of weapons, especially in densely populated public venues.
The WMD433 Walk-Through metal detector from ZKAccess features program modes for either 1-zone, 6-zone, 11-zone or 33-zone detection. Alarms located on both sides clearly and precisely indicate where metal is detected. The WMD433 automatically counts people and alarms and readily distinguishes dangerous metal objects from harmless ones, including wristwatch, belts and coins. Equipped with a 5.7-inch LCD screen, it offers infrared remote control and supports TCP/IP communication. The detector is completely safe to operate and walk through, and poses no harm to heart pacemakers, pregnant women, or magnetic storage media. The WMD433 provides secure operation, as only authorized personnel can access the control panel.
Assembly and installation are easy. The WMD433 ships with only two pieces, cables and eight screws, and simple to follow instructions. There's no need for manual calibration - the unit runs self-diagnostics and re-calibrates with each power-on. Casters for easy mobility, as well as 4-8 hours of battery backup are optional.
"Sadly, we've seen all too many times the tragedies that can occur to innocent people in public places," notes Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. "While preventing these tragic events is not always in our control, added layers of security can help deter the entry of weapons. Metal detectors are one such layer, and can be especially beneficial for hotels, arenas, night clubs, and schools."
