Designed to prevent conveyor belt damage due to long rods piercing the belt at transfer points or jamming the transfer point, the Model 1260 Metal detector selectively detects long metal objects of a given diameter and length, as well as normal tramp metals greater than the rod diameter. As is the case with the other 1200 series Metal detectors, the Model 1260 is also compatible with fabric or steel corded conveyor belts, and belts with metal splices.
