The METAL-TEC HS-1500 was designed to meet requirements of the US Military for applications ranging from Security to Forensics and for use in the harshest environments. The HS-1500 with it’s High Sensitivity can now detect metal weapons at a greater distance and can detect very small metal objects with very little metal mass, items such as Micro SIM and SD memory cards.

The METAL-TEC HS-1500 can assist in locating with pinpoint accuracy, metal objects which may have been otherwise overlooked. The METAL-TEC HS-1500 requires only one hand for operation, it can be held between the fore finger and the thumb freeing up the other fingers during a search or frisking of the subject. The METAL-TEC HS-1500 can find a metal object, and pinpoint its location without the need for a constant sweeping motion. There is no adjustment necessary, sensitivity is factory preset and automatically compensates for temperature changes which may affect sensitivity.

Another feature of the METAL-TEC HS-1500 allows the 9 volt battery to be inserted in either direction (non polarity sensitive) making battery replacement in the field easy and uncomplicated. METAL-TEC HS-1500 also includes a low battery indicator which was designed to notify the user that the battery has been depleted to a level which no longer meets operating specifications. The low battery indicator causes the unit to constantly vibrate as soon as the power is turned on, which notifies the user to replace the battery. This feature removes the possibility of the unit being used with a weak battery which may give incorrect detection results. The heavy duty Polypropylene holster contains a metal snap, to allow easy removal of the holster from the duty belt. The snap also serves as a test feature to indicate proper operation of the METAL-TEC HS-1500 when removed from the holster, if the unit continues to vibrate, this indicates a low battery condition. If the METAL-TEC is left on when it is returned to the holster, it will start to vibrate in the holster to remind you to turn it off.

METAL-TEC HS-1500 includes a heavy duty Polypropylene holster and vehicle mounting kit. Using the self adhesive Velcro® mounting kit, allows the METAL-TEC HS-1500 to be mounted to the prisoner cage, door panel, windows, organizers, radio console, or any smooth surface in the vehicle or building. This allows the officer to switch between carrying it on the belt or vehicle mounting for easy access.
