Abstract

The present invention relates to a system (100) for spatially detecting any foreign bodies within a product (135) on the basis of dielectric characteristics of said product (135), said system (100) comprising: conveyor means (150) adapted to convey said product (135) through a scanning region (S) along a crossing direction (L), in a predefined crossing time interval (T) for crossing said scanning region (S); a plurality of antennae (200) arranged transversally to said crossing direction (L), wherein each antenna (210) of said plurality of antennae (200) is adapted to operate in the microwave range, and wherein each antenna (210) is adapted to transmit an electromagnetic scanning signal adapted to propagate in said scanning region (S), so as to diffuse in said product (135); processing means (250) adapted to generate a first set of values indicative of the dielectric characteristics of said product (135) based on at least one diffused electromagnetic signal received by at least one antenna (210) of said plurality of antennae (200), said processing means (250) being adapted to compare said first set of values with a second set of values indicative of the dielectric characteristics of said product (135) in the absence of any foreign bodies,wherein each antenna (210) of said plurality of antennae (200) is adapted to transmit said electromagnetic scanning signal at least once in said crossing time interval (T), according to a predefined transmission frequency.
