Multi Spectrum Technology: Multiple Simultaneous Frequencies.

(Not just a couple switching)


Handle Variation without False Rejections.


Ceia’s multi-spectrum technology was introduced to the U.S. marketplace in 2009. Since that time, Ceia has quickly become the “go-to” supplier for difficult applications. 

As you can imagine, penetrating the United States metal detection marketplace, that has long been dominated by a few key players, is no easy task. Only with innovative technology, that is able to prove itself in demonstration and field testing, is market share gain possible. 


In 2012, Heat and Control and Star Packaging began the garguantuan task of taking on the big boys. By asking our customers for the hardest applications, or just a chance when they had issues, we have been able to show the Multi-Spectrum technology advantages to our happy customers. 

Multiple Frequencies operating simultaneously allows for a divide-and-conquer approach. Attacking product effect and specific metal types, while still filtering occasional interference, the metal detector is able to handle variation that is very common in production facilities. Our customers appreciate the reduction in false rejection, while still maintaining (and increasing) their overall sensitivity obtainment.
