Smiths Detection has launched the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX Model S, a smaller footprint version of its Computed Tomography (CT) checkpoint scanner.

An ideal solution for smaller and regional hubs where space is constrained, the new model is 20cm narrower and 350kg lighter than the original model. It can be easily integrated into existing and new airport checkpoints. It features industry leading image quality and low levels of energy consumption with a belt speed of 0.2m/s, which is 30% higher than other CT X-ray scanners, alongside low noise levels and zero vibration.

As with the original model this smaller version harnesses the power of CT X-ray scanning, eliminating the need to remove electronic devices, liquids and gels from hand luggage by producing 3D volumetric images, reducing the number of trays and speeding up the security screening process.

“With over 700 units sold globally, the market leading HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX delivers the very best passenger baggage security solution and we are delighted to further enhance our product portfolio with this new launch,” said Philo Daniel, Global Director Aviation, Smiths Detection.

“We have developed a more streamlined checkpoint scanner, which can fit into checkpoints with size and layout limitations, that improves energy efficiency, the screening process, security outcomes and passenger experience,” he continued.
