Power-supply and control unit


The power-supply and control unit is housed in a watertight box in stainless steel which is designed to be attached by
means of four screws and through which pass the connecting cables. The power supply unit is available in two versions:

Control Power Box , containing the metal detector power supply section and designed to allow
connection of external sensors and slave devices

Conveyor Control System, with the same functions as the Control Power Box, but with the addition
of a conveyor belt motor driver/control section

Control Power Box

Fig. I-3a - Control Power Box in Fig. I-3b – Internal view of the ALM Fig. I-3c - Control Power Box with
stainless steel casing card RCU remote control panel (model
THS/G or other models on request)

The module contains only the electronics needed for supplying power to the probe and the connection terminals for
external sensors and slave devices. The card inside (card ALM), allows connections to be made to the following:
• metal detector probe
• mains power supply
• product transit photocell
• external activators and sensors
• personal computer

Fig. I-4 Control Power Box: rear and side views


4 THS – FI022GB2K8v3 --- I - DESCRIPTION

Conveyor Control System


In addition to the functions provided by the Control Power Box, this includes a module to drive the conveyor belt motor.
This module is available in two versions:
• Card MDT, for fixed-speed applications; in this case, a three-phase input power supply (230V or 400V) is
required;
• Card MDL, for variable-speed applications; in this case, a single-phase input power supply is required, as the
card incorporates an inverter with three-phase outputs.

The versions available, therefore, are the following:

Version Application Input Voltage Maximum Output voltage Maximum


power (motor power power of
absorbed supply) * motor
Conveyor Control System/MDT Fixed speed 230V -18% / +10%, three-phase 1250VA 230V -18% / +10%, 750W
with MDT module for 230V power supply without neutral, 48-62Hz three-phase 48-62Hz
Conveyor Control System/MDT Fixed speed 400V -18% / +10%, three-phase 2500VA 400V -18% / +10%, 1500W
with MDT module for 400V power supply with neutral, 48-62Hz three-phase 48-62Hz
Conveyor Control System/MDL Variable 230V ± 10% single-phase 48- 1000VA 230V three-phase 750W
with MDL module speed 62Hz 20-60Hz
* three-phase asynchronous motor , delta connection

N.B.: if the device is to be mounted on the customer’s own conveyor belt, please specify the power supply voltage in the order.

The unit also incorporates the main switch, the controls for activating the belt and the LED indicators needed for
operation (STC card).

• Load-bearing structure

During assembly the solidity of the load-bearing structure should be borne in mind, in order to ensure that
the detector does not oscillate, causing false alarms

• Metal structures surrounding the Metal Detector/conveyor belt system

Fixed metal structures


All the fixed metallic structures in proximity to the detector must be securely
fastened down with bolts and self-blocking nuts and, if they form intermittent
loops, soldered.
This is due to the fact that sporadic metallic contacts due to vibrations,
resulting in the intermittent short-circuiting of the voltages induced by the
probe, may lead to interference with subsequent false alarms in the device.

Fig. II-1 Fixed metal structures


THS/M
Installation of structures or equipment with ferromagnetic frames in the vicinity
of the Metal Detector is not recommended. If this proves unavoidable, they must
be placed at least distance D from each side of the probe.

Other THS models


Fixed metal structures (frames, metal furniture, etc.) must, in all cases, be
located at a distance that is at least equal to the height of the probe (A), on
both sides of the probe.

Fig. II-3 Moving metal structures

General guidelines for electrical installation


Possible sources of electrical interference may be power supply cables (electromagnetic fields generated by alternating
currents) or impulsive electromagnetic sources (electrical motors with high start-up absorption of power and their
power supply cables, fluorescent lights, emergency generators, remote control devices, etc.) located near the probe.

• Power supply cables to other devices. The route of the conductors must never be allowed to create a large-scale
electromagnetic loop. The power supply cables must be distanced as far as possible from the probe and braided with
the shortest possible pitch. In general, it is advisable that the power supply cable harnesses be inserted into special
insulated channels. In the event that the conductors have to pass near the probe of the metal detector, it is advisable
that they be inserted into an iron tube, either electro-welded or drawn, which is at least 2 mm thick and has a suitable
diameter. N.B: this solution is only valid if the tube is not subject to vibrations; should it be subject to vibrations this
solution could even be counter-productive.

• Grounding. This connection must lead directly to the electrical power supply board and must not be derived from any
other electrical devices.

ci
• Warning! If metal ducts are used for production line
power and control lines, it is advisable not to create an
electrical connection between the conveyor belt frame M1 MD M2
and other nearby devices through the same ducts: if this
is done, interference due to multiple ground returns
could be produced.
Fig. II-5. ci: ducts in insulating material; M1: machine 1; M2:
machine 2; MD: metal detector

• Impulsive sources. In general, impulsive sources must be distanced or eliminated.


It is therefore recommended that, during installation, the following procedures be carried out:

1 position as far as possible from the probe any motors, electrical power boards or electromagnetic actuators (it is
recommended that they be replaced with similar pneumatic devices); position fluorescent lights and their
respective reactors at a distance from the metal detector probe; where possible replace fluorescent lights with
filament lights.

2 equip electrical motors with special iron screens and mains filters of sufficient capacity. It is recommended that
motors running on alternating current be used as opposed to those running on direct current. The table that
follows provides some general guidelines for the distances to be placed between the probe and asynchronous
motors, depending on their power.

Recommended minimum distance between the probe and motors with alternating current

> 20 CV 15 x DH ( >10 x DH if screened) 10 x DH ( 6 x DH if screened)

2.1 In the immediate proximity of the metal detector, the motors may be screened by means of cylindrical
enveloping in iron; such cylinders must have a sufficiently large diameter in order to contain the motors and
a thickness of not less than 2 mm. The cylinders must be of the unwelded type.

3 fit the electromagnets, remote controls and continuous current motors with RC muffling nets (ask our technical
office for details of the dimensions) and braid the respective power supply cables with as short a pitch as possible.

Fix the cable which connects the probe to the power supply unit so that it can not oscillate or vibrate.
If the cable is too long, DO NOT CUT THE CABLE: COIL UP THE EXCESS!

is positioned at 220-240Vac.

N.B.: the conveyor belt motor must be set up for the power supply
I1 voltage of the system: the power supply voltage should therefore
be specified at the time of ordering.

Fig.II-10

If the power supply to the device is different from that specified on the plate and/or
from that chosen at selector I1, permanent damage may be caused to the device.

CEIA will not be held responsible for damage to people, animals or objects caused
by failure to obey this instruction.
Verification that the power supply conforms to the values specified above and to the
regulations in force is the total responsibility of the customer.

Connection of the compressed air supply


Connect any components powered by compressed air to a source which complies with the specifications in the
“Technical characteristics” section, or otherwise specified in the configuration sheet enclosed with this manual.

Non-integrated THS system supplied without conveyor belt: detailed


construction notes and selection of operating parameters
The following notes provide additional instructions necessary for installing the
detector on a conveyor belt or other transport system set up by the customer.
For the installation checks you need to be able to switch on the system, understand the signals given during use and set
the applicable operating parameters. These operations are described in the first part of the “USE” section.

Mechanical Installation
Controls
According to regulation EN60204-1, the main switch and the other controls to be used by the operator must be at a
height ranging from 600mm to 1,800mm from the flooring.
If it proves impossible to comply with this measurement due to the configuration of the system, an additional control unit
which complies with the regulations must be set up.

Mechanical installation of the metal detector


Mount and fix the probe onto the structure of the conveyor belt (use the four holes located on the base-plates. N.B.: on
some models the base-plates can be fixed in two different positions to adapt to the shape of the load-bearing structure).
The belt must pass through the tunnel.

The structure must be stable and not subject to vibrations.

Mechanical installation of the power supply unit


The power supply unit must be firmly attached to the load-bearing structure by means of four screws; it must be close to
the central electronics unit and to the external subsidiary devices connected to the unit (photocell, ejector, etc.).

Mechanical installation of the THS/G probe


Mount the probe on the pipe carrying the material to be inspected and fix it with screws and plastic spacers, using the
holes provided on underside ( see Fig. "Dimensions of the probe", dimension FHW).

Fix the control unit in a convenient position for use, within the limit set by the length of the probe connecting cable.

Fix the cable which connects the probe to the power supply unit so that it can not oscillate or vibrate.
If the cable is too long, DO NOT CUT THE CABLE: COIL UP THE EXCESS!

Proximity limits around the THS/G probe


The distance between the probe and fixed or moving masses depends on the sensitivity selected and on the size of the
masses. The figure below shows:
• the minimum distance D between the probe S and the support plate P
• the minimum distance H between the probe S and the deflector f, based on a sensitivity setting of 280 and a flap-
type deflector in stainless steel. If the sensitivity or the type of deflector is changed, this minimum distance may
decrease: using the procedure for checking environmental interference (see “Maintenance” section), check that
activation of the deflector does not influence operation of the metal detector.

Conveyor belt

The distances quoted below are indicative only, and subject to variation according to the sensitivity required and to the
type of probe. When installation has been completed, therefore, correct operation should be checked.

Load-bearing structure of the conveyor belt

The load-bearing structures of the conveyor belt must be stable and not subject
to detectable vibration during movement of the belt.

The structure of the belt must be in non-magnetic steel (e.g. non-magnetic AISI
304).

Rollers of the conveyor belt
In general, it is advisable that any rollers located near the antenna be of
insulating material. In which case, there must be an electrical connection on only
one side of the roller, in order to allow the discharge of any electrostatic charges.

Position of the conveyor belt inside the probe


• The conveyor belt must pass as close as possible to the lower surface of
the tunnel. In order to prevent it from accidentally rubbing against the
probe it is advisable that it be supported within the probe by means of a
sheet of insulating material , which is thick enough to support the weight
of the material being transported (approximately 5-20 mm). It is necessary pi n
to take this measure when the belt is of considerable length and must

therefore be supported, while at the same time prevented from vibrating.
The sheet must not touch the probe (in the illustration an intervening D
distance of 5-10 mm is shown); if it were to touch the probe it could send
vibrations to the antenna. In any event, if there is a supporting metal layer
for the belt, when it arrives at the probe, it must be interrupted for a

Inserting the conveyor belt on the THS/A model


The THS/A model allows the installation of one side of
the conveyor belt through the probe, without cutting S
the belt itself. The probe has a short section on its A
side which can be removed to insert the belt.

Procedure
• Remove screws S.
• Remove section A. B
• Move the belt into the probe, or the probe over
the belt, depending on the requirements of the
structure.
• Fix section A in place again using screws S.

The parameter KT depends on the system configuration, and can be


determined using the following procedure (it is necessary to obtain a transit
speed measurement device):

1. set KT=1.000
2. set BS=50
3. activate the motor and measure the speed of transit Vn
4. calculate KT = Vn/50

By changing the value of BS, the speed can vary between 40% and (2 x
MI)% of the nominal value of the motor (corresponding to operation at 50Hz).

N.B.: by modifying the value of KT, the parameters BL and BM are


automatically set to nominal values, respectively 20 x KT and MI x KT.
BL and BM can also be modified manually.

Example:
Motor: operating frequency 50Hz ; maximum frequency 60Hz; maximum
current 3A;
Encoder 100 impulses/rev.;
Roller diameter 60mm, belt thickness 2mm;
Desired speed 45m/', minimum 25m/', maximum 50 m/'.

• Set: MI=60, CU=3.000, DI=60+(2x2)=64


• Determine KT via the procedure described above:
KT=1.000, BS=50 measured Vn =55 m/' KT=55/50=1.100
• Set BL=25 (correct value to give 20KT=22)
• Set BM=50 (correct value to give MI x KT=66)
• Set desired speed BS=45

N.B.: The BS parameter is memorised individually for each type of product defined. If
required, several speed parameters may be set for the same material by defining an
equal number of product types.

Photocell self-diagnosis
If the photocell is in a continuously active state for a long period, this is interpreted as a malfunction of the sensor by the
self-diagnosis system. There are many possible causes (wrong position, short-circuited wiring etc.).
The self-diagnosis message may appear:
- in the case of a conveyor belt without encoder or with Power Control Box, with the belt stopped or moving
- in the case of a conveyor belt without encoder or with Conveyor Control System, with the belt moving.

The system is not designed to signal a pack which is stuck for some reason in front of the photocell. For this reason,
when the system can detect whether or not the conveyor belt is moving (i.e. when it is equipped with an encoder or with
the Conveyor Control System power supply unit), the self-diagnosis function gives an alarm only if the photocell is in a
state of malfunction when the belt is moving.
On systems without encoder or with the Control Power Box, it is the installer’s and operator’s responsibility to ensure that
material does not remain in front of the photocell when the belt is stopped: if it does, the photocell will be continuously
active even though it is not malfunctioning. If the foregoing situation can not be avoided, it is advisable to disable
photocell self-diagnosis (Parameter PA)

Mechanical installation of a bar code reader


Safety precautions
Although the power of the laser beam used in this barcode reader is very low, it can be dangerous to the human eye if
stared into for long periods of time. Careful attention must be paid to the warnings on use of the laser. These warnings
refer to regulations enforced by local authorities.

IEC regulations
Warning labels indicating laser radiation and the reader classification are applied to the body of the reader:

Fig.II-29

The device is classified as a Class 2 laser product according to the rules indicated in IEC publication N. 825-1 (1993).

Turn the power off when opening the reader during maintenance or installation to avoid dangerous laser radiation.

Barcode reader kit


The barcode reader can also be installed on the THS system at a later date: a special kit is available for this purpose,
and includes an enabling code.
The reader is available in two versions:
• Picket-Fence, optimised for codes with vertical bars
• Step-Ladder, optimised for codes with horizontal bars

Distance between the reader and the metal detector probe and distance between packs
The reader is mounted upstream of the probe in order to read a code stamped on the pack. If the code is recognised, the
reader sends a command to the metal detector to select the relevant product type. The time required by the THS to
process the barcode is usually insignificant, but becomes important if the band is changed due to a modification in the
type of product.. When the metal detector receives the signal to change product type, an internal adjustment procedure is
activated the length of which determines the minimum distance between two packs with different codes, that is to say
containing different products.

A non-rigid mounting, using anti-vibration supports, should be adopted for the reader.
The two types of reader should be mounted as shown in the figures below.

Reading features
The number of scans performed on the code by the reader, and therefore its decoding capability, is influenced by the
following parameters:
• number of scans per second
• code motion speed
• label dimensions
• scan direction in respect to code motion

At least 5 scans during the code passage should be allowed to ensure a successful read.

Step-Ladder mode
BCR bar code reader

CMD code motion direction at LS speed

LB laser beam

Fig. II - 32

If scanning is perpendicular to the code motion direction ( “step ladder” mode), the number of effective scans
performed by the reader is given by the following formula:

SN = ((LH/LS) * 350) - 2
These symbols signify:
SN = number of effective scans
LH = label height (in mm)
LS = label movement speed (in mm/s)

For example, the reader for a 25 mm high code moving at 500 mm/s performs:

SN = ((25/500) * 350) - 2 = 15 effective scans

Suitable values for LH and LS should therefore be chosen, so that:

LH/LS > 0.02

Picket-Fence mode
BCR bar code reader

CMD code motion direction at LS speed

If scanning is parallel to the code motion, (“picket fence” mode), the number of effective scans is given by:

These symbols signify:
SN = number of effective scans
FW = reading field width (in mm)
LW = label width (in mm)
LS = label movement speed
THS – FI022GB2K8v3 --- V - MAINTENANCE 35

Reading field width depends on the distance between the label and the reader.
The following figure gives the reading diagram for the following conditions::
• code = interleaved 2/5 or code 39
• PCS = 0.90
• P angle = 0°
• S angle = 10°
• T angle = 0°

For example, for a code 50 mm wide moving through at 1500mm/s at a distance from the reader corresponding to a
reading field of 200mm, we get:

SS = (((200-50) /1500) * 350) - 2 = 33 effective scans

The position of the reader must therefore be chosen so that FW is at maximum, based on the reading diagram, and LW e
LS should be chosen so that

(FW-LW)/LS > 0.02

Inputs

Make all connections relating to input lines using screened cable, connecting the
shielding only at the THS system end to the contacts marked with the symbol
which are provided on the various connectors.

Bar-code reader
The bar-code reader is supplied upon request: for connection, follow the indications in the plan on the previous pages.
Downstream belt authorisation (Following conveyor - Conveyor Control System only)
When active, this input indicates that the downstream belt is operating and can accept the product.
Photocell
When active, this input indicates the passage of the product in front of the photocell. The input is monitored by the self-
diagnosis system.
Ejection confirmation (Eject confirmation)
When active, this input indicates the passage of the product into the set-aside container. The input is monitored by the
self-diagnosis system.
Container full (Full bin)
When active for at least 5 seconds, this input indicates that the set-aside container is full (the malfunction relay is
activated).
Impulse encoder (Encoder)
This input is used to measure the speed of the conveyor belt if an encoder has been installed. The sensor must provide
impulses, the amplitude of which is indicated in the table “Electrical connections”, with a minimum frequency of 2 Hz and
a maximum frequency of 1kHz. It may be contact type, open collector (NPN o PNP) or push-pull. For correct operation a
coefficient KE must be determined during installation and set-up, as per the procedure described in the para. “ Transit
speed “.
Alarm reset (Reset)
When active, this input forces the Metal Detector to exit from the alarm state (used in the case of operation with belt
block and manual reset).
Inhibition
When active, this input disables the detector: it is generally used to avoid false alarms caused by the start-up of the
conveyor belt when it is not possible to adjust the mechanical structure of the belt.

Alarm inhibition when belt is switched on


If the start-up of the belt is accompanied by interference which is serious enough to cause a false alarm, the alarm can
be inhibited:

• Control Power Box:


• connect a contact which is activated at start-up to the inhibition input;
• set the IN parameter to a suitable value determined by experiment (see “Programming” section).

• Conveyor Control System: simply set the IN parameter to a suitable value determined by experiment (see
“Programming” section).

Air pressure sensor


When active, this input indicates that the compressed air pressure is sufficient for the ejector.

Container absent (Bin absent)


When active for at least 5 seconds, this input indicates that the set-aside container is not in its place (the malfunction
relay is activated).

Switching on the metal detector


If the device is stored for a long period in temperatures outside the operating range, wait for the temperature of the
detector to come back within that range before switching on

Power supply unit


There are dangerous voltages inside the power supply unit. Close the cover and keep the key safe so that it is only
available for use by trained personnel (Regulation EN 60204)

Conveyor belt motor


The motor can reach high temperatures during use: do not touch the motor or bring inflammable materials close to it
while it is operating or immediately afterwards. Ensure that the cooling air intakes are not obstructed, and that there is
free air circulation
WARNING: do not set the motor in motion without the conveyor belt: this may lead to damage due to excess revolutions
and consequent overheating.

Checking the safety features


Before switching on, check that the safety devices with which the system is fitted are in good condition:
1. rollers: protection crankcase for the pin
2. rollers: lower protection panels
3. ejector: protection panels (if fitted)

Also check operation of the emergency button with the belt in motion.

It is strictly forbidden to start up the system if all safety features are not properly functional. Tampering with the safety
features is also forbidden, and voids all responsibility of the manufacturer for any damage caused.

Keep the power supply unit panel closed. The key must always be in the possession of an authorised person.

Signals at power-up
The detector is designed to be switched on directly from the electrical panel that controls the production line.
The power supply unit does however contain an auxiliary switch I2, which is normally in the ON position.
The presence of mains power supply is signalled by the lighting up of the indicator located on
the control panel (Conveyor Control System) ...

Fig. III-7a

... or of the green LED L2 located on card ALM, near switch I2 (Control Power Box).

I2 L2 Fig. III-7b

When it is first powered up, the Metal Detector’s configuration includes 5 factory-set passwords (shown in the
test card at the end of the manual).
It is extremely important that the person in charge of the detector modifies the passwords in order to avoid
unauthorised access to programming.
When the device is turned on, the display lights up, as do the indicators located on the front of the
electronics unit.
More specifically, the display shows, in sequence, the serial number and the version of the software program that drives
the power supply unit; after that the following is displayed:

Signals given during use

On models where there is a control panel on both the probe and the power supply unit (because the probe is installed in
a position which is inaccessible to the operator), the electronics unit display is disabled (the message “Disabled”
appears).

Indication of the received signal


On the fourth line of the display the signal being received is displayed by means of a horizontal illuminating bar,
subdivided into 20 sections. When the signal increases, the bar extends towards the right. The alarm threshold
corresponds to 10 illuminated sections: the sections from 1 to 10 are bars, those from 11 to 20 are asterisks

Checking for environmental electromagnetic interference


The THS Metal Detector has very high immunity to electromagnetic interference. However, it may happen that electrical
devices, usually power devices, cause interference which is strong enough to lead to false alarms. To identify these
sources of interference the indication of the signal received from the probe, which the detectors normally shows on the
display, can be used. Under normal conditions, the indication on the display should correspond to that in Fig. III-9a.

• simply pushing the keys located on the Conveyor Control System, if parameter MM=OFF.

N.B.: during programming of the metal detector, the Conveyor Control System keypad is disabled. Vice-versa, while the
Conveyor Control System keys are being used, metal detector programming is disabled.

Automatic stop
If nothing passes through the metal detector for the length of time set by parameter ST (see Programming section), the
conveyor belt stops automatically.

Alarm reset
In the case of an alarm, the contaminated product is ejected from the product conveyor according to the type of operation
which has been selected:

• in operation with automatic ejection, the belt is not stopped and the contaminated product is sent into a set-aside
container which should be emptied periodically by the operator. In this case, the detector resets automatically.
• in operation where the conveyor belt is blocked, the belt is stopped and the contaminated product is positioned in the
exit area of the metal detector for manual removal by the operator (N.B. all material between the probe and the stop
line must be removed!).

In this case, the belt only restarts when the operator pushes the appropriate button. In the case of the Conveyor

Automatic operation using a bar-code reader


The THS system can, upon request, incorporate a bar-code reader for automatic selection of the specific parameters of
the product in transit. This avoids having to halt the production line frequently. The reader is installed upstream of the
probe so as to read a code stencilled on the pack. If the code is recognised, the reader sends a command to the metal
detector to select the analysis programme.

If the code is not recognised due to lack of legibility or because it is not on the list of enabled codes (see parameter CD in
the Programming section), the reader does not send any signal to the metal detector and the analysis program remains
that selected for the last pack). In this case, also, the pack can be expelled automatically from the production line by
enabling parameter NE

When the metal detector receives the signal to change product type, an internal adjustment procedure is activated the
length of which determines the minimum distance between two packs with different codes, that is to say containing
different products. This distance is as follows:
56 THS – FI022GB2K8v3 --- V - MAINTENANCE

THS/3F D min = (probe length) + 3000 mm


with change of band (BA parameter) between one product and the
other
THS/3F D min = (probe length ) + 300 mm
without change of band (BA parameter) between one product and the
other
Other THS models D min = (probe length ) + 300 mm

Attention must be paid to the position of the pack, or rather of the label, while in transit: this should be parallel
to the direction of transit so as to ensure that the barcode is legible.

Photocell self-diagnosis
If the photocell is in a continuously active state for a long period, this is interpreted as a malfunction of the sensor by the
self-diagnosis system. There are many possible causes (wrong position, short-circuited wiring etc.).
For details see the “Self-diagnosis” paragraph in the Maintenance section.

On systems without encoder or with the Control Power Box, it is the installer’s and operator’s responsibility to
ensure that material does not remain in front of the photocell when the belt is stopped: if it does, the photocell will
be continuously active even though it is not malfunctioning. If the foregoing situation can not be avoided, it is advisable to
disable photocell self-diagnosis (Parameter PA)

Programming the metal detector according to the kind of product


The operating mode of the metal detector according to the kind of product is determined by the following parameters:
• TX program (TP parameter) except for THS/MN
• Sensitivity (SE parameter)
• Analysis mode (AM parameter)
• Band - only on the THS/3F multi-frequency model (BA parameter)

The factory settings are suitable for dry products (biscuits, pasta, dry frozen food,...).
We would remind you that:
• in the case of products with "difficult" characteristics, it is advisable to call CEIA's Technical Department in order
to request production of specially-designed equipment.
• it is always advisable to optimise installation in line with the criteria described above in order to obtain maximum
sensitivity and maximum rejection of environmental interference.

Procedure for minimising the "product effect"


The goal of this procedure is to obtain the following operating mode:
a the detector does not set off an alarm when the conveyor system is active and some of the pure product,
without any metallic contamination (with aluminium tray onTHS/MN), passes through the probe.
b the detector sets off an alarm when some of the product containing a metallic sample passes through the
probe
It is important to make sure that the product always passes through the probe at the same point and with the
same orientation, in order to obtain the best results from this procedure:
Procedure for automatic product acquisition (not applicable to the THS/M model)
This procedure comprises the automatic acquisition of product characteristics in order to identify the contribution to the
received signal due to the metal mass to be detected. The characteristics are acquired progressively by making the
product pass through the metal detector several times.
The procedure alters the settings of the following parameters:
• SE and TP, if TN>1 (only SE on THS/MN)
• Only TP if TN=1
• BA, on model THS/3F if MB=ON

The procedure must be completed once started. Do not change any parameter setting during the procedure.

1 It is advisable to create a new product using the command New P.


2 Set the Analysis Mode parameter to a suitable value (see the “Analysis Mode Selection Criteria” section). In the
case of the THS/3F model, the correct value of the MB parameter must be selected (ON: autolearn with automatic
selection of the operating band; OFF: autolearn with operating band pre-set using the BA command). In the case
THS – FI022GB2K8v3 --- V - MAINTENANCE 57

of multi-band operation(MB=ON), select the desired value for the OS parameter.


3 Set “Autolearn=ON”. Exit from the programming phase and follow the display instructions.
4 Make the product pass several times through the metal detector, according to the value of the Transits
parameter (N.B.: in the case of loose product, the device automatically proceeds to analyse it correctly). N.B.: in
the case of model THS/3F, if MB=ON, carry out 3 x TN transits, with TN=2,3....
The message “Pass product” appears on the display, and the buzzer is activated (if enabled).
5 At the end of the transits the detector exits from the autolearn phase and the standard message appears on the
display.
6 Final operating check
6.1 Pass some pure product through the detector: the device should not set off any alarm.
6.1.1 Pass some of the product with a metallic sample: the detector should give an alarm. In such a
case, the procedure has been successfully concluded.
6.1.2 Otherwise, increase sensitivity and check that the bar-graph indication is not higher than 8 points
during the transit of uncontaminated product.
6.2 If the detector gives an alarm whenever some of the pure product passes through the probe, decrease the
“Sensitivity” parameter until the detector does not give an alarm (this is probably due to non-uniformity of
the product).
7 If a periodic test on the product is required, set the effective diameter of the metal mass used in the relevant
parameter in the MD Test menu: parameter FD if the sample is of ferromagnetic metal, parameter SD if stainless
steel, or parameter ND if diamagnetic. In this way, the test report will show this value next to the result of the test
carried out.

N.B.: if the product can vary significantly in its electromagnetic characteristics, adjust parameter SA (Sensitivity
Adjustment)

Sensitivity check with reference sample


It is important to check proper operation (sensitivity and ejection of material) of the metal detector periodically by carrying
out a sensitivity test with a reference sample.

Test using a sample defined by the customer


The reference sample is identified at the end of the installation phase based on the customer’s specifications; the
sensitivity, trajectory and orientation of the sample must be noted if it is not spherical.
This sample should be kept under constant conditions, and is used periodically for the test, which should be carried
out under the same conditions as the end-of-installation test.

Test using a CEIA sample


The reference sample is one of the CEIA spherical samples available in various sizes and in three types of metal
(ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel)
Determine by experiment the sensitivity needed to detect the sample, or carry out the procedure for minimising the
product effect
Enter the diameter of the sample in the FD parameter (or SD, or ND, depending on the type of metal used)
Set the intervals and the waiting period for carrying out the test, and whether or not the malfunction relay is activated
if the test is not performed (see QA Configuration menu)
Periodic test management

At the end of the period Test interv. (from when the metal detector is switched on),
a message requesting a test is displayed:. ( this can also be signalled via an
optional lamp).

Barc-MD dist.
BD 300 – 5000 mm - Global
Description Models
Distance between reading point and antenna
The reader is mounted upstream of the probe in order to read a code printed on the package. If the code is
recognised, the reader sends a command to the metal detector to select the relevant product type. The time required
by the THS to process the barcode is usually insignificant, but becomes important if the band is changed due to a
modification in the type of product. When the metal detector receives the signal to change product type, an internal
adjustment procedure is activated the length of which determines the minimum distance between two packages with
different codes, that is to say containing different products.

All models
On systems without encoder or with the Control Power Box, it is the installer’s and operator’s
responsibility to ensure that material does not remain in front of the photocell when the belt is

Remote programming via serial link


Programming is carried out through a remote computer fitted with an RS232 or RS485 interface, using a standard
communications program (e.g. Windows™ Terminal) or the CEIA MDScope program, available on request.

Communication parameter settings:


• Baud rate = 9600 bit/s (to be set on the computer)
• 8 data bits
• NO parity
• 1 stop bit
• no communication protocol
• CR -> CR+LF
• Local echo = OFF
• Terminal: VT 100 (ANSI)

Entering remote programming


Connecting to a metal detector (via RS 232)
- Run the communications program
(password) <ENTER>
- Enter the password and key ENTER. The command #
prompt will appear

Note: each password accesses programming at the appropriate level (operator, supervisor, …)

Long-distance connection to a single metal detector (via RS 485)


Identical to the above.

Network connection (via RS 485)


Using RS 485 transmission, several metal detectors can be connected in a network. In this case, the PC acts as master
and the metal detectors as slaves. So as to allow each individual metal detector to be identified, the following steps must
be taken:
Set a password on each metal detector (N.B.: the password can be the same if so desired).
Set a different Line ID identification code for each metal detector (line ID parameter ID=1001, 1002, 1003, .).

Maintenance

Any maintenance or repair of the device while open and energised should be avoided, and in any case should
only be carried out by trained personnel who are fully aware of the risks which the operation entails, following
the instructions given in the “Maintenance” section.

When the mains is disconnected using the main switch S1 of the Conveyor Control System, the power supply
section is deactivated, but the contacts which are connected permanently to the mains, e.g. the relay outputs,
remain energised.
N.B. When the I2 service switch is turned off, most components remain energised.

Self-diagnosis
The internal diagnostic system monitors the operational status of the metal detector. If a fault is detected, the following
are activated in addition to a message on the display:
• the illuminating alarm indicators
• the buzzer (if activated)
• the fault relay (if Fault relays parameter is ON)
• flashing light (if Fault relays parameter is ON)

Fault status can only be reset by eliminating the cause of the fault.

**** The self-diagnosis message may appear:


- in the case of a conveyor belt without encoder or with Power Control Box, with the belt stopped or moving
- in the case of a conveyor belt without encoder or with Conveyor Control System, with the belt moving

The system is not designed to signal a pack which is stuck for some reason in front of the photocell. For this
reason, when the system can detect whether or not the conveyor belt is moving (i.e. when it is equipped with an
encoder or with the Conveyor Control System power supply unit), the self-diagnosis function gives an alarm only if
the photocell is in a state of malfunction when the belt is moving.
On systems without encoder or with the Control Power Box, it is the installer’s and operator’s responsibility to
ensure that material does not remain in front of the photocell when the belt is stopped: if it does, the photocell
will be continuously active even though it is not malfunctioning. If the foregoing situation can not be avoided, it is
advisable to disable photocell self-diagnosis (Parameter PA)

Storage
Store the system in its original packaging, or in a way that protects it adequately from atmospheric agents or other
possible causes of damage (moving objects, weights, solvents etc.).

Storage temperature (Regulation EN 60204): -25°C - +55°C long-term, +70°C for 24 hours maximum.

Transport and movement of the conveyor belt

Disconnect the system from the various power sources before carrying out any movement.

Use lift trucks or sling the load-bearing structure, and ensure that the load is balanced during movement. Avoid
deforming the structure or its component parts.

Never attach lifting gear to the Metal Detector probe or the actuators.

Keep the packaging materials for possible future transport.

Fig. V-2

Adjustment of conveyor belt tension


This is carried out on the roller on the side opposite the motor roller. To adjust the belt tension, loosen screws A on both
sides by the same number of turns, so that the slack in the belt at the entrance to the probe appears as in the figure
(about 0.02 x length of the belt, s=0.02 D).

Fig. V-3a Fig. V-3b


THS – FI022GB2K8v3 --- V - MAINTENANCE 87

Replacing the belt


If the belt has to be joined, this should be done along a diagonal or, even better, in a zigzag, in order to minimise the
increase in thickness due to the joint.

Replacing Card SCD


If the control card has to be replaced, the serial number of the device must be quoted in the order; the card will only be
able to be used with that same detector.
Procedure
• Switch off the device
• The card is attached to the detector control panel. Remove the control panel by unscrewing the fixing screws, taking
care not to pull on the internal connecting wires.
• Disconnect the card and connect the internal wires to the replacement card.
• Plug the SPM memory card from the old control card into the new one. N.B.: the memory card contains all the
device’s stored programming, product and event data.
• Reassemble the control panel.
• Switch on the detector and reset the programming.
• Carry out the TL Autolearn procedure:
• The procedure must be carried out in an interference-free environment: deactivate the THS conveyor belt and any
other power devices in the area.
• Set the parameter TL Autolearn = ON and exit from programming.
• The message “Pass” will appear on the display: press forcibly for at least a second on the probe (see figs. below –
press in the middle of the belt width at either the entrance or the exit, but NOT in the centre). In the case of
models THS/PH and THS/G, make the probe vibrate. Repeat TL autolearn for each band (BA) and for each
channel (CH).

• N.B.: in the case that the procedure is not carried out, or is carried out improperly, compensation for the products
may not be correct. As a check, select the “default” product and make some tests with the sample indicated in the
test card enclosed with this manual.
• Check that the system operates properly with all the products stored in memory.

The SCD card stores the values of all the operating parameters, including those of the power-supply and control
unit. If the power supply unit is replaced, therefore, it is not necessary to reprogram the system..

Checking environmental electromagnetic interference


The existence of interference is indicated by false alarms or by the display of several segments on the bar-graph when
the conveyor belt is stopped and there is no product in transit:

the threshold level the threshold level threshold level (alarm).

For correct operation, the bar-graph indicator should not have more than THREE bars lit.
To eliminate the interference, the first thing to do is to identify whether it is electrical or magnetic:

1 Set parameter TX=OFF. . (NB: on model THS/MN, set the switch on the internal card of the probe power-supply unit to OFF)

2 If the interference remains the Examples of sources of electrical interference: electric motors, inverters, power cables, lighting
same, it is electrical
3 If the interference decreases, it Examples of sources of mechanical interference: unstable anchoring of the metal detector
is of a mechanical nature (vibrations), metal masses moving in the vicinity of the probe, intermittent loops, metal
fragments in the conveyor belt.
To increase immunity to mechanical interference, adjust the AM parameter (see paragraph “Analysis mode selection criteria” ).

To eliminate sources of interference, refer to the illustrated notes in the Installation section.
