The MT 5500 is one of the world's most popular
walk-though metal detectors because it provides maximum throughput with
unparalleled multi-dimensional scanning. The MT 5500 meets the demanding
needs of security professionals worldwide who trust its ability to maintain
a high flow rate with minimal alarms.

|Garrett's MT 5500 is easily assembled with only 4
(four) pieces and 8 (eight) screws and simple to follow instructions.
|The MT 5500 uses multi-dimensional scanning which
ensures maximum throughput and uniform screening with a minimum of
false alarms. Multiple coil circuitry with dual alarm lights inform
operators on which side of the detector the target is located. With
"hot spots" eliminated, the unit's detection field is uniform throughout
the archway and false alarms are significantly minimized.
|State of the art microprocessors ensure sensitivity
and flexibility of programming with a maximum of 200 distinct sensitivity
levels in each program.
|Audible and Visual Alarms
|Audible alarm with 3 distinct tones indicating target
on the left, right or center of the archway; two LED bar graphs related
to the red Alarm Lights that report detectable metal on either side
of the unit or centered within it.
|Unique coil design offers multidimensional detection
field with total uniformity both horizontally and vertically. This
design, plus a choice of three levels of ankle level boost, eliminates
traditional hot spots and weak signals. Target detection is precise
regardless of its location in the archway.
The Access Control Panel is designed for use by authorized personnel with
specific security codes. It allows authorized users to change settings
such as Program and Sensitivity. Security of the detector's settings is
maintained with a non-resettable sequence code, which indicates every
attempt at access to the settings. A tamper alarm sounds within 10 seconds
after the Access touchpad is pressed unless a proper access code is entered.
The MT 5500 includes 20 standard programs, which are maintained in an
electrically erasable non-volatile memory, for the ultimate in security
application versatility. The unit maintains all settings even when disconnected
from power and does not require recalibration when unit is turned OFF
and back ON. No battery is required for memory retention. When the unit
is in operation, a self-test of all systems is performed continuously
with any failures or problems reported on the LCD display.
- Operating Temperatures
-4°F (-20° C) to +158°F (70°C); Humidity to 95% non-condensing
Fully automatic 100 to 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hertz, 5 watts; no rewiring,
switching or adjustments required. Power supply meets UL, CSA, TUV and
- Weatherproofing / Foreign Object Protection Standards
Meets IP 31, IEC Standard. "Degrees of Protection provided by Enclosures,"
Dual-level access codes required to set or change all sensitivity settings
and detection programs; one level for use by supervisors in selecting
programs and sensitivity and the other for initial set-up and overall
control; non-resettable sequence code logs all attempts to access the
settings. Audible alarm reports any unauthorized attempt at access
Attractive scratch and mar-resistant laminate with resilient end caps;
control panel and cross members of heavy duty aluminum.
- Control Outputs
Solid state switches (low voltage AC or DC) for operating external alarms
and control devices.
Multiple channels permit several MT 5500s and other Garrett detectors
to operate simultaneously in close proximity
- Interference Suppression
100% sensor coil Faraday shielding; RFI interference reduced with hardware;
special Garrett built-in circuitry for noise suppression and ignoring
x-ray monitors. Physical interference minimized by coil design and circuitry
Ready light indicates unit is operational; alarm lights and audible
alarms with variable tones are activated when the target amount of metal
is detected; location of alarm lights on left and right side of display
combined with variable tone indicates which side the of th person the
target is located.
- Infrared Sensor
Provides traffic counter, helps eliminate "false alarms and increases
