FerrAlert HALO II Plus Ferromagnetic Detection Systems
The best ferromagnetic detector to protect the MRI suite. FerrAlert leading edge technology provides the most reliable detection and prevention of ferromagnetic threats from entering the MRI room (Zone IV). FerrAlert detectors are recognized to be the most accurate ferromagnetic detectors for MRI, due to their exclusive location-specific feature. The New Plus Package dramatically reduces alarm fatigue by not alarming on the MRI door and ferromagnetic objects exiting the MRI room. In addition, FerrAlert HALO II Plus accepts our new FerrAlert Encompass accessory. The FerrAlert Encompass Ferromagnetic threat detector automatically detects and logs unintended ferromagnetic objects entering Zone IV. FerrAlert HALO II provides significant assistance in the prevention of serious injury to patients and staff or equipment damage. Our New Visual Advanced Warning Technology alerts on the approach of ferromagnetic threats to Zone IV, well before the portal is reached. The greater the threat, the further away the warning is activated.
FerrAlert Features: FerrAlert HALO II PLUS HAS EASILY UNDERSTOOD STATUS INDICATORS
– Go YELLOW
– Warning RED
NEW - INTELLIGENT VISUAL ADVANCED WARNING
alerts on the approach of ferromagnetic threats to Zone IV, well before the portal is reached. The greater the threat, the further away the warning is activated. The audio alarm is activated only at the threshold if advanced visual warning was ignored. Ferrous objects not approaching the entrance to Zone IV do not trigger a warning. (Ferrous object is not a threat, until it tries to enter the Magnet Room)
INSTANTLY PINPOINTS LOCATION OF FERROMAGNETIC OBJECT
allowing the Technologist to quickly and easily identify all ferromagnetic threats – NO invasive pat-down or handheld detectors required.
ALARM STATUS IS ALWAYS VISIBLE FROM BOTH
inside and outside THE MRI ROOM Unlike all other detectors, ONLY FerrAlert allows the Technologist full control of the MRI room at all times. ACR and The Joint Commission require control of Zone IV at all times!
PATENTED TECHNOLOGY SUPPRESSES FALSE WARNINGS
while providing the HIGHEST SENSITIVITY to ferromagnetic threats. This technological advancement reduces alarm fatigue and increasing throughput. The use of 24 sensors ensures uniform sensitivity and detection reliability from head to toe.
CONTINUOUS MAGNETIC DISTURBANCE MONITORING
provides instant feedback by 2 highly visible integrated bar graphs.
MOST FLEXIBLE INSTALLATION
for all facility architectural layouts. Mounts unobtrusively with both in and out swinging doors.
ALARM INDICATOR LIGHTS NOT BLOCKED BY AN OUTWARD SWINGING DOOR
SAFE, PASSIVE DETECTION
no electromagnetic radiation, RF radiation, or magnetic field.
ADJUSTABLE SENSITIVITY AND AUDIO ALARM LEVELS
CONFORMS TO ALL APPLICABLE RECOMMENDATIONS AND STANDARDS
including FDA, ACR, AAMI, Joint Commission, FGI and VA.
18 DETECTION ZONES
for ACCURATE and FAST finding of a ferromagnetic threat.
COMPREHENSIVE SELF TEST FUNCTION
for hospital periodic maintenance requirements as well as piece of mind.
to alert staff of MRI entrance ingression.
REMOTE ALARM CAPABILITY
optional remote audio or visual alarm.
FERRALERT APPROVED PATIENT TRANSPORT EQUIPMENT
available which will not trigger an alarm.

The FerrAlert Encompass Ferromagnetic threat detector automatically detects and logs unintended ferromagnetic objects entering Zone IV. It is the only system that provides a photographic stream and does not require manual logging, thus allowing the technologists to perform uninterrupted patient care without wasting time with self-reporting. It also allows for the analysis of safety trends that can be shared throughout the entire hospital system. The data analysis software allows effortless generation of reports for The Joint Commission inspections. The FerrAlert Encompass can greatly assist with the new requirements for The Joint Commission compliance.

FerrAlert Encompass Features:
Adjustable width 25-52 Inches.
Sorting of data to identify unintended ferromagnetic objects.
Easily implemented connectivity and expand-ability.
Records images before, during and after the Ferromagnetic threat enters the magnet room.
All FerrAlert products are entirely passive in operation and are completely safe for your staff, patients and MRI image quality.
Reminder: Ferromagnetic detectors should not replace current MRI pre-screening procedures. To provide your patients and personnel with the most comprehensive safety, the use of diligent screening protocol together with our high quality ferromagnetic detectors is recommended.
