The new solutions are aimed at equipping the regions’ airport establishments, ports and borders and other critical infrastructure facilities with the technology to detect modern day security threats. The IONSCAN™600 non-radioactive explosives trace detector (photo) has been developed for use in globalaviation and infrastructure security.Its small, portable design,combined with ease-of-use, reduces the cost and time of screening for a range of high-threat explosives.
Shan Hood, Vice President, Product and Technology, Smiths Detection said: “Accurate explosives detection is crucial for the international security market. The new IONSCAN 600 fits into a layered security approach, delivering the detection capability needed, while helping security professionals minimize overhead through its user-friendly configuration, flexibility, and cost advantages.”
The technology behind the IONSCAN 600easily surpasses that of its previous version, the industry-leading IONSCAN 500DTused widely around the world -- from airport checkpoints to mail screening. Its breakthrough feature is a proprietary non-radioactive Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) source which eliminates the need for special licensing, handling or disposalrequirements.
The IONSCAN 600 also weighs just 23 pounds (10.4 kg) and is equipped with a built-in handle making it easy to carry. Its hot-swappable battery provides continued sampling and analysis capability, allowing it to be moved while still in use. Low cost, single-use test swabs dramatically reduce operator costs.
The HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro, an advanced dual-view X-ray system for screening large-scale freight, air cargo and mail.
HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro is an advanced version of the HI-SCAN 180180-2is which has become a market-leading solution over the past decade. The new ‘pro’ version meets the current global legal requirements for 100% inspection of air cargo on passenger flights. It also reflects the increasing need for X-ray units capable of screening LD3 containers as well as the largest package size accepted by the US Transportation Security Administration: 122 x 122 x 165 cm (W x L x H).
Thanks to its high penetration capabilities HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro can screen large containers with no need to disassemble consolidated freight into individual packages. This cuts re-inspection times considerably and ensures both high throughput and a fast, efficient inspection process.
Security standards are increased by the use of dual-view, with top and side views of the screened objects providing excellent image quality to allow precise image interpretation. The HI-SCAN 180180-2is pro offers a compact footprint which minimizes the required floor space and the associated lifecycle costs.
