CEIA 02PN8-HIPE Metal Detector

Professional device for metal detection

CEIA Metal Detectors are among the most used devices in the world for professional metal detection. The PN8 HIPE device is the most used on Security Cabins and Portals with interlocking doors system.

PN8 HIPE is used all over the world, millions of people pass through CEIA PN8 HIPE Metal Detectors every day. It has an excellent sensitivity level for objects discrimination:

  • High discrimination of personal metal objects (keys, smartphones, etc.)
  • High immunity to electrical and mechanical interference
  • High reliability

Specifically designed to detect firearms in high-flowrate entrances, the HIPE combines the characteristic reliability of CEIA products with good discrimination of firearms and metal personal effects.

Product features

C.E.I.A Metal Detector is an apparatus which adapts well to the widest possible range of working conditions, and is especially immune to parasitic electromagnetic interference; however, to obtain best results, particularly at high sensitivity, a few precautions relating to the structure in which the detector is going to be placed should be taken. Sources of interference can be of two types:

  1. of a mechanical nature
  2. of an electrical nature
