  • Maximum detection performance with highest reliability in the entire detection area due to 4-quadrant technology
  • Simple setup with TeachAssistant
  • Storage spaces for up to 250 products
  • Easy to use with intuitive and multilingual menus
  • 4-level password system, automatic log out after time lapse
  • Documentation of all events and metal messages
  • IFS and HACCP reports available on the display at the touch of a button
  • Optional: Data transfer to USB interface or connection to the company network via SHARKNET® software
  • Cyclical function monitoring with Performance Validation System (PVS)


The SHARK® 2A hygienic design control unit can be combined with allmost all CASSEL METAL SHARK® sensors. It can be mounted directly on the detector/sensor or remotely on a wall.

A 5.4 inch colour display provides access to all important functions: Product list, test function, teach-in, optimizati-on, menu. The clear layout and easy-to-understand in-structions in several languages make it particularly easy to teach the device to different products and to monitor production later on.

The SHARK 2A unit can be combined with the METAL SHARK® sensor heads:  BD, GF, TU, IN Liquid, R and FL.

3D Detection

All SHARK® 2A control units are prepared for 3D detection. The established 4-quadrant technology is supplemented by multi-phase measuring and signal amplification factors of the MultiPhase and BOOST FACTOR technologies: These generate 3-dimensional signal models of the signatures of your products – as unique as a fingerprint.

The METAL SHARK® with 3D detection can handle frozen or heated products, changing product orientations or temperatures as well as cooled, heated or humid environments without any problems. For this function an additional light barrier in front of the sensor is required.
