General Purpose Metal Detector – AD10-2

Adams AD10-2The general purpose Adams hand held metal detectors are designed and manufactured to endure 24 hour continuous use and abuse in the toughest of working environments. After many years of reliable service, the Adams model AD 10-2 is now supplied world wide to Airports, Police Forces, Federal and State Departments, as well as Military and many other highly demanding users. The AD Series metal detectors have a sensitivity of 0.1 grams detection mass. An alarm indication is given by a piezo sounder and a high intensity LED when the battery is running low and a continuous audio/visual LED signal that the battery is exhausted.


Operating at a low energy frequency of 20 Khz all Adams hand held metal detectors use Linear Detection Technology (LDT) as the detection system. Developed in the Adams Electronics Incorporated research facility, Linear Detection Technology (LDT) produces a clean signal free from transient noise or unsafe high energy, yet enables a detection sensitivity that can detect even the tiniest fragments of metal – accurately and safely.


All the metal detectors in the general purpose range are medically tested and approved, providing no risks to pregnant women or persons with pacemakers, or any interference to magnetic recorded material. Additionally, the unit is protected again environmental conditions and waterproofing to IP64 (lEC 529). It has been tested and approved to EEC EN5008-1 Table 1. EN50082-1 Table 1:1.1 Radiated emissions. Conforms to international standards: CE mark, lEC, NILEC of FCC, FAA.
