Smiths Detection Launches Compact HI-SCAN 6040C

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 hotels.

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.
