The METAL SHARK® COMBI TU is a multi-segment sensor typically used over fabric, non-woven or paper webs as well as plates of different materials. It detects the smallest metal particles from 0.6 mm and localizes their position in defined segments of the product.

The METAL SHARK® COMBI TU is suitable for widths up to 5 m/16.6 ft and more available. It can be easily operated in humid environments with ambient temperatures from -10˚C to +40˚C and product temperatures up to 65°C.


  • Digital signal processor, digital frequency generation, digital balance control, automatic calibration, digital noise filters, integrated flexible control functions
  • 2 analogue 0…10 VDC (option: 4-20 mA), 8 freely configurable 24 V DC signals, e.g. for encoders, product recognition, buttons
  • 2 potential-free changeover contacts: “Error” and “Metal”, 8 freely configurable 24 V DC signals, e.g. solenoid valve, optical/acoustic alarm
  • High-frequency magnetic field, multi-channel operation, balanced receiver coils

  • 250 memory spaces, automatic product compensation, with TeachAssistant
  • IP 65, optional IP66 or IP67
  • Standard: -10° C up to +40° C, rel. humidity 30% to 80% (non-condensing), option: down to -40° C or up to +55° C
  • Standard: -30° C up to +40° C, optional: -40° C or up to +60° C
  • 1 phase 110-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 20 W typ. (60 W max.)
  • 230V AC +/-5%, 50/60Hz, 4A (8A max.) or 400V AC +/-5%, 50/60Hz, 4A (10A max.))
  • RS232, LAN (optional, for SHARKNET), USB (optional)
  • Maintenance-free, sensors calibrate themselves
  • Integrated diagnostic software, automatic self-test
  • 1,000 mm to 5,000 mm (standard), up to 7,000 mm (optional)
  • 28 mm net, The maximum panel thickness of the product depends on the thickness of the product and the deflection, the sum of which must not exceed the net passage height. Example: Net passage height 28 mm – panel thickness 8 mm = max. 20 mm panel deflection
  • FE 0.6 mm, Al 0.8 mm, SS 0.7 mm - (The sensitivities are highly dependent on the environment in which a metal detector is installed. The sensitivities mentioned here should therefore only be considered as guide values).

Accessories & Extras

The METAL SHARK® COMBI can be perfectly adapted to your production by various special designs and accessories. Different numbers of sensor plates and widths um to 7,000 mm are possible as well as swiveling traverse arms or an adjustable travrse height.

For your audit reliability, a Performance Verification Certificate can be issued by CASSEL service technicians during commissioning or maintenance.

  • The SHARKNET® software connects METAL SHARK® metal detectors to a central computer and offers central storage of all operating data as well as batch and alarm documentation for HACCP and IFS conformity.
  • Signal transfer of belt speed and mat height from the system control for automatic adjustment of the detector sensitivity.
  • Temperature range extended to -40°C, cold-elastic grouting material, insulation, switch cabinet heating and other measures.
  • Temperature range extended to +55° C, adaptation of control cabinet, additional thermal insulation, replacement of filter fan, heat exchanger and/or active cooling units.
