    Fully automatic 100 to 240 VAC, 50 or 60 Hertz, 45 watts; no rewiring, switching or adjustments needed.

    Weatherproofing / Foreign Object Protection Standards.

    Meets IP 55, IEC Standard. "Degrees of Protection provided by Enclosures," IEC 529. *IP 65 optional.

  • Thirty-three (33) distinct zones are displayed with two (2) independent columns of LEDs located on exit side of PD 6500i.


    More than Twenty (20) independent programs designed to meet all installation specific requirements including ECAC requirements for European airports and TSA requirements for U.S. airports.

    Random Alarm Feature

    Provides ability to randomly alarm on a selected percentage of non-alarming persons; adjustable from 0 to 50 percent.

  • 2,300 selectable operating frequencies and multiple channels allow the PD 6500i to operate in close proximity to other PD 6500is as well as with non-Garrett walk-throughs.

    Pacing Lights

    International symbols located at entrance.


    Audible tone and volume adjustable. Bright LED visual alarm.

    Directional Counter

    Counter tracks the number of patrons that have passed through the detector, the direction of patrons, the number of alarms and calculates alarm percentage. Four directional count settings (forward, reverse, subtraction reverse and bi-directional).

  • Advanced analog and digital filtering—as well as adjustable operating frequencies—eliminate the potential effects from x-ray units, radios and other electrical interference sources.


    Attractive scratch and mar-resistant laminate. Detection Heads and Support: Heavy duty aluminum.

    Control Outputs

    Solid state switches (low voltage AC or DC) for operating external alarms and control devices.


    24 months, Limited parts and labor


    All settings are secured with a key lock and two levels of access codes. Further security is accomplished with a cabinet lock which prevents unauthorized access to physical cables, connectors and electronics.
