The MI55 is the ultimate in personal metal detection offering unparalleled performance and dependability in an attractive, easy-to-use, billy-club configuration. Ideal for use in courthouses, prison systems, schools, or corporate complexes, the SEARCHBATON™’s 360-degree search capability allows for rapid and effective searches without having to be held at specific angles like conventional metal detectors require. The internal ferromagnetic transceiver module detects metal equally in a 360-degree field perpendicular to the unit and requires no tuning or operator adjustment as it is completely self-tuning. Momentary or sustained operation is available by use of the dual-action power switch. Metal detection is clearly indicated both visually and audibly by the internal audible alarm and the red LED indicator. It is extremely sensitive and commands respect by its very appearance. Housed in a machined, weatherproof ABS extruded plastic barrel with comfortable knurled hand grip and wrist strap, the SEARCHBATON™ provides service for the most demanding environments.
