Smiths Detection Adds Lithium Battery Detection as Option on HI-SCAN 100100 Series

Smiths Detection is now offering lithium battery detection as an option on the HI-SCAN 100100V-2is and 100100T-2is scanners, with other conventional X-ray systems expected to follow in the future.

The lithium battery kit uses an external evaluation computer to host the detection software, which analyses the contents and “frames” any detected batteries – this data can be shown on the main system monitor or on an additional screen. Adding this detection function does not affect the speed of overall image evaluation and little or no training is required.

The kit is now available as an option on new HI-SCAN 100100 series scanners or as an upgrade for existing machines.

“The lithium battery development follows IATA’s recommendations regarding Dangerous Goods and is aimed mainly at the air cargo sector,” said Matt Clark, VP Technology & Product Development, Smiths Detection. “It is designed to tackle the tangible threat posed by lithium batteries, which have the potential to ignite when airborne. In addition to extending this option to a full range of systems, we plan to expand these augmented detection capabilities to goods such as weapons, flammable liquids, currency and drugs.”

As it is particularly suitable for break-bulk cargo screening and is already popular with air freight handlers, the HI-SCAN 100100 series was first in line for the lithium battery option.

Positioned at 90° to each other, two 160 kV generators speed up the inspection time of tightly packed items by providing both horizontal and vertical views. For further efficiency, there is a choice of conveyor heights and a maximum load of 220kg. HI-SCAN 100100 series scanners are also compliant with EU regulation 2015/1998.
