Smiths Detection Launches New Dual-View X-Ray System for Security Checkpoints

Smiths Detection today launches an advanced dual-view X-ray inspection system, HI-SCAN 6040-2is, for automatic explosive detection at security checkpoints – where bags and personal belongings are screened.

With its compact footprint, and weighing less than 850kg, the new high-throughput system can fit through doors of 900mm, allowing easy installation in areas that are restricted for space.

The HI-SCAN 6040-2is, is able to penetrate 35mm of steel, offers an operator friendly interface which supports the operator’s ability to identify illegal objects and explosives. Available in standard and also high resolution, it can typically be deployed at airports, government buildings, hotels and other critical infrastructure applications.

Ian May, senior vice president global sales of Smiths Detection, said: “The HI-SCAN 6040-2is is set to cause a stir in the market. The combination of a compact footprint and high quality features such as excellent image quality and outstanding penetration, offers an affordable and adaptable system ideal for the global markets.”

The HI-SCAN 6040-2is also offers different monitor options which can be placed on top or on a wheeled stand to provide remote operation away from the X-ray machine.

Risk-based screening (RBS) is becoming increasingly popular in some aviation security sectors.
With increasing passenger numbers, new regulations and ever-evolving threats, airports are constantly challenged to maintain operational efficiency and improve security effectiveness.
