Smiths Detection has launched its high speed Hi-SCAN 100100V-2is to deliver higher throughput for break bulk cargo. Designed to meet the demands of fast turnaround, high volume air cargo applications for accelerated security screening, according to Smiths Detection the new model delivers the highest performance with the smallest physical footprint.

Not only does the new model allow for increased and more efficient throughput for express forwarders, mail screening and e-commerce, it can also be utilised at mass transit checkpoint. The dual-view screening for shorter inspection times, with a 200kg conveyor load to support break cargo screening and a 1010 x 1010mm tunnel for easily handling out of gauge baggage. The new model expected to be added to the ‘Qualifier’ section of the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA’s) Air Cargo Screening Technology List (ACSTL) in due course.

Existing HI-SCAN 100100V-2is installations can be upgraded to meet the new specifications and the ECAC compliant technology can also be integrated into material handling systems and connected to centralised screening applications for increased efficiency.

“We are delighted to be delivering enhanced capabilities for our HI-SCAN series, with the launch of the new high-speed HI-SCAN 100100V-2is, which addresses the cargo sector’s need for speed and efficiency, and the roll out of automatic weapons detection across three HI-SCAN systems,” said Richard Thompson, Global Director Aviation, Smiths Detection.

“The security screening process cannot be foregone, so implementing automated detection solutions is invaluable for enhancing the smooth flow of people and goods and more effectively tackling threats.”
