Thermo Fisher Scientific: Metal detection technology
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Intellitrack XR (IXR) is a signal processing technology that will be integrated into the entire family of Thermo Scientific APEX metal detectors.
IXR software is specifically designed to detect metal in discrete wet products including cheeses, breads, water bottles and baby wipes. The IXR technology learns and cancels the X (reactive) and R (resistive) product signals, leaving only the metal contaminant to be detected. To assure high-performance over time, IXR tracks these product signals by adjusting product cancellation on the fly. This dual channel (X and R) cancellation approach eliminates the risk of phasing out a foreign metal object and having it go undetected.
