How Do Metal Detectors Work?
The standard walk through metal detector you see at airports, schools, and so forth all use the same common technology to detect metals. This is done by a method called pulse induction (PI). Pulse induction is achieved by having 2 coils on each side of the detector – one coil is a transmitter coil and the other a receiver coil. When power is applied to these coils a magnetic field is created between the 2 panels. Click this link to read more about how metal detectors work.
Are Metal Detectors Safe?
Many people ask if metal detectors are safe for pregnant women and people wearing pacemakers. The truth is: Most walk through metal detectors run at a very low frequency that is far out of the danger zone. Products that people use daily such as cell phones and computer monitors cause more danger than a metal detector ever could. Many people confuse these with x-ray machines at the airport. X-ray machines put off a large amount of radiation but that has nothing to do with metal detectors so you are safe with these.
