MDI Metal Detectors View-Link Remote Interface

MDI Metal Detectors Inc. new View-Link remote diagnostic module is a network interface that provides “live”real time information from MDI industry leading metal detectors directly to the MDI facility in Eugene,Ore.

This enables MDI technicians to monitor the metal detector and its environment to make custom adjustments and tweaks to the system’s software remotely. Combined with significant advancements made to its premier TWA-2000- HD metal detector search coil, the MDI View- Link further slashes downtime and increases profitability by solving some of the following problems occurring in the harshest of environments:

• Revealing unknown false tripping caused by a broken weld in a nearby catwalk;
• Detecting and then ignoring minerals and saps found in specific wood species;
• Monitoring during weather extremes in order to find a nearby motor that, as the weather becomes hotter, will creep into the same frequency as the metal detector causing false tripping;
•Adjusting the systems programming to ignore various nuisance targets that do not pose a threat to the customers processing equipment and machinery.

The View-Link will also give MDI the ability to make on demand software upgrades, customizing the system programming to the customer’s specific application – like having a service technican right there in the mill.
