Icon metal detector from Fortress

20 May 2011

Fortress Technology's new metal detector is said to feature an eye-catching touchscreen and is designed to be future proof as well as backwards compatible with older Fortress systems

Using robust Quad-Core processing, the ICON delivers fast accurate detection of metal contaminants, and detailed data collection. Information gathered such as Product Configurations, Rejects and Faults is stored in an onboard database and accessible via USB or wired Ethernet. All collected data can be exported as Microsoft Excel or Adobe Acrobat PDF file formats.

The Icon features an intuitive graphical experience with custom designed icons and comprehensive menus that will allow users of all skill levels to easily set up products, perform tests and produce reports.

The reports are generated by a mobile version of Fortress Technology’s Contact Communication Software which has evolved to be an important part of day to day testing procedures and product verification for Quality Assurance personnel. It is also widely used for HACCP compliance.

Having an increased amount of user options and available features, the Icon comes equipped with multilevel password protection (MLP). This added benefit controls access to specific areas of the system for different users. Once activated, the MLP will modify the user interface to display only relevant information, to reflect the level of responsibilities of the given user.

The Icon also offers many enhanced testing options through its Auto Test and Test Request features. Product testing is an important routine that is done on all metal detectors and is now fully customisable. Testing can be scheduled according to the desired test method; it can be set up to occur on specific days, times and can also be automatically activated when key parameters such as Sensitivity or Phase values change.

Sarah Ketchin, Managing Director at Fortress Technology Europe comments: “The Icon is an extremely exciting development for Fortress. It provides the company with a building block for the future and enables us to easily introduce new features and functionality.”

“By being more future proof than anything else on the market, the Icon will also allow Fortress to continue its reputation of being able to provide innovative and effective solutions to satisfy customer demands and market conditions.”

Sarah concludes: “The fact we have designed it to be backwards compatible with all Fortress Phantom metal detectors makes it a cost effective option and reinforces our commitment to combining superior functionality with value for money.”

The Icon can also be easily customised and used in any multi-language environments.
