The IQ3 variable frequency metal detector from Loma analyzes “product affect,” such as temperature, moisture, salt content and speed, and reviews a broad band of frequencies to offer the right one for the specific application within seconds. This frequency selection helps reduce operator error and allows a variety of products to be run through the same unit, says the company. These capabilities are possible using case and coil geometry, which delivers immunity from vibration, electrical interference and thermal shock. This enables increased stability with fewer false positives, says the company.
