Smiths Detection has launched the HI-SCAN 6040C,
a compact checkpoint scanner designed specifically to screen
hand-carried items at the entrance areas of public buildings such
as correctional facilities, courthouses, embassies, banks, museums and
Shan Hood, Vice President Product & Technology of Smiths
Detection, said, "Security incidents in public buildings around
the world demonstrate how vulnerable our society can be. Our new
HI-SCAN 6040C X-ray inspection system is tailored to the security
needs of buildings where large numbers of people come and go every
day. The upgraded electronics and software ensure that it is
prepared for both current and future security requirements."
The quality of the X-ray images makes
detection of potential threats simple and helps to minimise errors.
Intelligent image display functions also support the operator by
distinguishing between organic and inorganic materials on the
screen- a particularly important tool for the rapid detection of
explosives, weapons, drugs, food or money.
