Product Overview

Garrett MZ 6100™ Walk-Through Metal Detector 1171000 with Auto-Scan Function


Garrett’s MZ 6100 walkthrough metal detector provides enhanced performance and special program selections engineered to meet the varying security requirements of schools, stadiums, government buildings, mass transit, nightclubs, prisons, airports, entertainment venues, loss prevention, and special events. This budget-friendly detector includes a bright LED display and a zone light array that is visible in the brightest sunlight. The MZ 6100’s industry leading performance is enhanced by an Auto Setup function, 20 zones, and tamper proof circuitry. Operator adjustments are simple, thanks to the unit's intuitive menu design and slider bar feature.

Product Features:

  • 20-Zone Precision The MZ 6100's twenty zones provide precise location of one or more objects simultaneously.
  • Advanced Synchronization Internal circuitry and 4 selectable channels allow any quantity of MZ detectors to be grouped as closely as 2 inches from each other. This provides the greatest flexibility in checkpoint design and effectively doubles the number of units that can be grouped in a tight space (as compared to other detector models).
  • Optimum Performance More than 15 application programs engineered to address the needs of schools, airports, special events, prisons, courthouses, facilities, mass transit, loss prevention, and other applications.
  • Intuitive Menu Design 32-character menu prompts are easy for users to understand (i.e., no codes, acronyms to learn).
  • Auto-Scan Function The MZ 6100 scans electromagnetic environment and selects optimal frequency for noise cancellation.
  • Convenient Slider Bar Use to quickly adjust the value of a setting.
  • Enhanced Access Control Tamper-free detector controls via a 5-digit alpha/numeric system that has 60 million code combos. Additional security measures include a programmable keypad restriction switch secured in the lockable cabinet.
  • High Intensity LED Indicators Up to 5x brighter than indicator lights on some detectors. Eye-level green "proceed" symbol, red "wait" symbol, and zone indicators are highly visible, even in direct sunlight.
  • Directional Counter Four settings for counting patrons: forward only, reverse only, subtract in reverse, and bidirectional.
  • Optional Wired or Wireless Communication Manage walkthroughs individually or as groups and perform statistical analysis via network with CMA interface module.
  • Two Optional Battery Backup Choices 1-hour or 10-hour operation lithium batteries available.
  • Superior versatility Field programmable to allow system up-grades. Environmentally protected against wind, dust, rain. Full array of accessory items available.
  • Selectable Language Select preferred language for user programming functions.
  • Limited 24-month warranty: parts and labor.

Easy assembly

The MZ 6100's modular design allows quick and simple assembly of its four (4) sub assemblies using only eight (8) screws and three (3) internal cable connections.


Circuitry and cabling are secured behind a lockable panel. All settings are secured with two levels of access codes and a keypad restrict switch.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP) based technology

DSP provides greater sensitivity, noise immunity, discrimination, detection uni- formity, and overall product reliability.
