Metal Detector Components

When MDI designed its first metal detector in 1965, our commitment to our customers was to provide a metal detecting system that was simple to use and easy to service.

Still a trademark for every system we manufacture, our customers count on MDI to provide simple designs that work. Every component within an MDI Metal Detector has been designed to contain all of its essential elements in one neat package that can be unplugged and changed out in seconds. For more than 50 years, our dedication to serving our customers has preserved the modular design, making any MDI Metal Detector the industry favorite.

Experienced sales staff and engineers are ready to design the perfect system for your application.


Control Enclosures

MDI offers two custom designed and built Control Enclosures to serve as our control cabinet for all MDI Metal Detector Systems.

Control Chassis

MDI Control Chassis panel containing the system controls and readout is referred to as the Control Chassis. Control Chassis is housed in the Control Enclosure.

Function Block

Considered the “brain-boxes” of the metal detector system, the Function Block essentially energizes the metal detector to create the electromagnetic field that scans the conveyor contents.
