3DX-Ray have introduced their new smaller ThreatScan AS2 flat panel for their portable x-ray system at Intersec

The new panel has been specifically designed for operators working in areas where access is very restricted.  A smaller footprint with a slightly improved resolution as its big brother, the AS1, using the latest glassless technology inside to reduce size and weight. It boasts an excellent dead zone cut off, down to less than 3mm on two sides. Another advantage of the new panel is that its reduced size and weight make it ideal for deployment with police, customs and border agencies.

3DX-RAY LTD, CEO, Vincent Deery said: Intersec is always a very good event and location to start our year and this year we are delighted to introduce the new ThreatScan AS2 to the 3DX-Ray range of products. We are talking to our customers and are always innovating to meet their evolving needs. It was clear to us from that dialogue that operators often find themselves struggling to deploy the larger panels in very restricted spaces. So, we took it upon ourselves to address the issue by designing the ThreatScan AS2to meet those operational requirements and are very pleased to introduce it at Intersec.

In addition to the ThreatScan AS2on show will be 3DX-Ray’s established products already in service with EOD units worldwide, the ThreatScan®-AS1(ISC), ThreatScan®-LS1 and the ThreatScan®-LS3.

The 3DX-RAY ThreatScan®-AS1(ISC) is a robust amorphous silicon portable x-ray inspection system. It comprises, as standard, a detector panel with an imaging area of 43 x 35cm, a new high penetration 150kV generator, and a laptop along with batteries, chargers, the user-friendly 3DX-RAY ThreatSpect software, wireless communication and transport case. 

Despite being remarkably lightweight, incredibly thin, portable and battery powered 3DX-RAY ’s ThreatScan®-LS1 is a powerful large format x-ray scanning system. The large 600mm x 460mm imaging area of the ThreatScan®-LS1 enables typical bags and packages to be scanned in one scan. This powerful system penetrates up to 40mm steel at 120kV and up to 60mm at 150kV, producing high quality, sub-millimetre resolution images.

ThreatScan®-LS3 is a compact yet powerful x-ray scanning system that can penetrate steel up to 40mm at 120kV and up to 60mm at 150kV.  The 305mm x 256mm imaging area enables typical bags and packages to be scanned in one scan.  The complete system fits securely into a backpack.
