Smiths Detection launches new dual-view X-ray scannerssecurity

Smiths Detection has announced that it has launched the SDX 100100 DV series, comprising of two dual-view X-ray scanners.

The SDX 100100 DV HC features a high conveyor and is specifically designed to meet the needs of airports, parcel services, carriers, customs facilities, and other high security environments, while the low conveyor model SDX 100100 DV LC supports screening oversized baggage and break-bulk freight reaching up to 100 x 100cm in size.

Harnessing the power of dual-view X-ray technology, the scanners provide a horizontal and vertical view of the screened object, facilitating reliable inspections of tightly packed objects and shortening inspection times. Both versions are available with either a 0.2 m/s or 0.5 m/s belt speed, delivering high throughput for a faster and more efficient screening process, without compromising safety.

Any of the SDX 100100 DV configurations can be easily integrated into external material handling systems as well as into one intelligent network that allows Central Image Processing. The new hardware and software provide best in class image quality for increased operational efficiency. To further enhance security outcomes, the scanners can be supplemented with Smiths Detection’s automated threat detection software for weapons and lithium batteries, iCMORE.

Dr. Philo Daniel, Global Director Aviation and Urban Security from Smiths Detection commented: “We are thrilled to launch the SDX 100100 DV series, further enhancing our family of security screening technology. The range of configurations help to meet specific user requirements and regardless of model, provide efficient, accurate screening solutions that can be easily integrated and, crucially, deliver the highest security outcomes.”
