The SHARK® 2A 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.

  • The four-quadrant technology allows for a 360 degree freestyle teach area around the product effect, significantly increasing sensitivity. CASSEL equipment readily adjusts settings to detect metals even in such products as cheese and high-salt content foods, where detection can be a challenge.
  • Adjusts for temperature and humidity fluctuations by monitoring coil balance more than 200 times per second.
  • Utilizes synthesizer technology to generate a constant and stable frequency and phase during extended use.
  • Reduces or eliminates electronic and vibration signals in the environment, creating a more reliable signal.
  • Setting standards for testing is simple. Users are guided through a series of easy-to-understand, high-color screens. An on-board “TeachAssistant” offers help, if needed. This graphic assist allows the metal detector to be operational in less than 10 passes.
  • A full-color 5.4″ display panel shows only the information needed to operate the detector. Easy-to-follow software and a simple teaching menu allows set up and use by non-technical personnel. Over 120 products can be stored and recalled. A four-level password protection system ensures that only authorized users can operate the equipment. Operators can easily call up histograms, reports, diagrams or help screens. Performance Validation Software (PVS test) automatically notifies the operator when testing is required. Password protection ensures that only authorized users can operate the equipment.
  • Automatic balance and calibration of electronics ensures many years of reliable performance. After initial set up, no further adjustment of electronics is needed. Single frequency is standard. Multi-frequency is an available option.
  • New “recipes” or changes to current data are easily programmed. Digital noise filters eliminate any undesired signals, while multichannel technology provides optimum detection of ferrous, nonferrous or stainless steel contaminants. The integrated sensor is built to withstand the rigors of harsh production settings. Key internal electronics are fully protected and reliably perform in even the most challenging wet or dry environments.
  • Documentation of data required by HACCP, IFS, BRC and GMP is automatically recorded by METAL SHARK 2A. Metal contaminant detections, changes in parameter settings or other data is logged, along with the time and date. Reports can be downloaded to a Windows-based PC for permanent storage and record-keeping. Cassel Metal Detectors can also be programmed to automatically remind the operator to test equipment performance at pre-set intervals. Ethernet option is included.
  • Module is housed inside a stainless steel enclosure, with an enclosure rating of IP66 as a standard. Other optional enclosures with rating up to IP69K are available for wet or wash-down environments.
  • With the METAL SHARK® 2A Controller and an optional Ethernet module it is possible that a Cassel Service engineer can perform remote support on the metal detector. This can save high traveling costs for service engineers.
