Thermo Scientific offers a new software functionality for the Sentinel multiscan metal detector that the company feels will make it easier and quicker for food processors to improve inspection performance. The Auto Learn software feature allows users to conduct an additional set-up stage that can be used to capture data on products contaminated with metal foreign objects. It calibrates settings by allowing users to conduct product tests with clean products and with products containing likely metal contaminants. A detectability score for each metal type is displayed and operating parameters are automatically set to maximize sensitivity and help reduce false rejects. Auto Learn is now available as a standard feature on all new Sentinel multiscan metal detectors and as an upgrade for existing units.
