Trasmission X-ray people screening system

Feature Highlights

·         Detects objects concealed internal in or externally on the body.

·         Contraband and threat detection including: weapons, explosives (plastic and powder), detonators, narcotics, electronic devices, diamonds, precious stones/metals and mobile phones.

·         High throughput – scan time less than 7 seconds

·         Complete head to toe inspection in one short inspection cycle, even if shoes are worn with very low dose rates.

·         State of the art image processing software and zoom functions facilitates efficient image evaluation.

·         Low dose rate <2.0 uSv/inspection

The AFSCAN FB series provides a security solution for people screening, enabling the detection of objects and threats concealed internally or externally on the body. AFSCAN FB       helps to reduce the smuggling of drugs, guns, knives, cell phones and other contraband. AFSCAN FB utilizes fixed components, resulting in a reliable and easy to maintain system, with low lifetime of ownership costs.

The are currently more than 290 AFSCAN FB systems deployed around the world, in a variety of applications, such as prisons, airports and customs checkpoints. Other applications include mines and refineries, helping to reduce incidents of diamond, gem and precious metal thefts amongst employees.

AFSCAN FB Provides a full-body X-ray image, in excellent quality at 2.0 uSv per inspection (+/- 125 scans/year).

This model is ideally suited for higher security inmate screening. Independently verified to meet the ANSI guidelines.
