The Loss Prevention System is a high-precision walk-through metal detector. By generating an electromagnetic magnetic field that is harmless to the body (corresponds approximately to the strength of the earth`s magnetic field), metallic objects on or in the entire body of the individual can be detected. Thanks to our innovative metallic profiling, we are able to record metallic differences between entering and leaving an area.
The Loss Prevention System developed by CEIA is the only solution available on the market with which you can reliably determine metallic differences between entering and leaving an area by comparing the actual signal with the individual metallic profiling of the controlled person. In contrast to imaging processes such as cameras, Terahertz or X-ray technology, the investment costs along with the training and personnel costs are many times lower.
Metallic objects are clearly detected, regardless of whether they are on or in the body. The system can be ideally integrated into your existing processes without spending a lot of time, even with high throughput of people.
The device can be individually adapted to your needs and detects all metallic objects, even with the smallest dimensions. On the basis of globally valid standards for the detection of objects containing metal, CEIA develops and programs ideal technical solutions for a wide variety of application scenarios. With a high-precision setting, we can detect the smallest quantities of precious metals (e.g. 0.6g silver cylinder), such as those required for the precious metal processing industry. On the other hand, we can also use an adapted setting to detect smartphones or electronic components, as is required, for example, in logistics, production or the sale of electronic products. We are also happy to work with you to define settings on the basis of your targeted objects.
By using our Loss Prevention System, you can significantly reduce the loss of valuable objects containing metal in your company. Losses in the warehouse or production cost your company time and money in a variety of ways. In addition to the actual values that arise when products or raw materials disappear, follow-up costs such as process costs or a general distrust of your employees, which in most cases is unfounded. The system helps you to identify ?black sheep?, to prevent losses and to strengthen trust in your employees. Taking into account the lower loss of goods, experience shows that the CEIA Loss Prevention Systems pay for themselves in less than 1 year of use. Especially for the clients of logistics service providers, reducing losses in the warehouse can strengthen existing customer relationships and create trust.
The topic of data protection played a decisive role in the development of our loss prevention system. In the first step, it is important that our technology is not an ?imaging scanner?, but a metal detector that creates a corresponding metal profile. This means that it is not the employee that is recorded, but rather only their metallic objects. In order to guarantee maximum security, the metal detector itself, the network interface (APSIM) and the management switch (MDNA) were developed and checked in accordance with the highest security standards (ISO27001 / NIST 800-53). The data transfers between the devices take place via secure HTTPS connections with TLS 1.2.
For each user of the profiling system, the following are stored on both the APSIM and the MDNA:
- First name, last name, card code, metal profile
- First name, last name and card code are accessible to a user.
- Metal profiles are not imaging data and cannot identify a person. These data are to be considered as non-personal data.
- In the input mask for the first and last name, other letters or numbers (e.g. personnel number) can also be used to avoid the transfer of sensitive user data.
As a rule, few perpetrators are responsible for the fact that a general suspicion arises in the company against certain employees or against temporary workers and external companies, which cannot be proven or refused. This negative working atmosphere puts a strain on your company and your honest employees, who are wrongly exposed to accusations. With the installation of the CEIA Loss Prevention System you can identify specific individuals and eliminate the general suspicion towards your employees or partner companies, so that you can live a culture of trust and cooperative work in your company.
Thanks to the extraordinary high precision and repeatability of the CEIA WTMD, networking of the loss prevention systems with several entrances and exits is possible without any problem. Your employees can enter or leave the building at any location, as one person at different entrances and exits delivers the same result, provided that the metal masses carried along do not change. The optional MDNA acts as a central memory that stores the data of all passages (entrance / exit) and exchanges them between the devices. Important: Free entrances and exits without a WTMD should not be available.
Networking and exchanging information across multiple locations is also possible without any problems. This is of particular interest if employees have to change locations on a regular basis.
The more metal-free your employees are, the more precisely the Loss Prevention System can detect unauthorized metal masses. The permitted metal masses must always be lower than the target objects you are looking for. By sending your target objects, we can program your loss prevention system ideally to your needs. We are happy to offer you this service, including subsequent advice, free of charge prior to commissioning.
For decades, CEIA has been the industry leading supplier of walk-through and hand-held metal detectors for theft prevention. Our devices protect precious metal stocks, jewelry or electronic devices and components of our customers around the world every day. The installation locations vary between production halls, warehouses or retail stores. All systems we offer are checked for safety by an independent laboratory, installed and commissioned on site by our highly qualified technicians.
The payback period for the systems is usually less than a year. Our broad customer base attests to this for the most varied of purposes.
In addition to the low costs for power consumption (approx. 75 watts), there are no follow-up costs due to the installation of a CEIA Loss Prevention System. You neither need a radiation protection officer nor regular, compulsory training for your staff. If you need additional training or regular basis, we can of course make you an individual offer.
