Brochure >


The Sentinel 5000 model is the first multiscan metal detection platform to scan a combination of up to five user-selectable frequencies to find all random sizes, shapes and types of metal foreign objects. Sentinel 5000 identifies contaminants that are up to 50% smaller in volume than the Thermo Scientific™ APEX 500 metal detector, and has the same dimensions and conveyor mounting for easy upgrade.  The Sentinel 5000 can be used in a metal detection-checkweighing combination system, but due to its size must be mounted on a standalone infeed conveyor.


All models offer the following features to achieve the highest level of food safety:

  • Frequency Range 50 to 1000 kHz, multiscan runs up to five frequencies

  • Easy-to-use touchscreen with new Autolearn function to quickly optimize set-up

  • Detailed graphical displays for phase, rejects, quality test, and detection thresholds to enable easy fine tuning and troubleshooting

  • IP69K for severe washdown and dust, eliminating repair costs

  • All electronics are integral, so mounting is easy and flexible

  • All balance functions are implemented in software, so no need for manual, hardware rebalance in the field
