Smiths Detection Launches Next-Generation Non-Radioactive Explosives Detector

Smiths Detection has introduced its next generation explosives trace detector for use in global aviation and infrastructure security. Its small, portable design, combined with ease-of-use, reduces the cost and time of screening for a range of high-threat explo­sives.

The technology behind the IONSCAN 600 easily surpasses that of its previous version, the industry-leading IONSCAN 500DT used widely around the world -- from airport checkpoints to mail screening. Its breakthrough feature is a proprietary non-radioactive Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) source which eliminates the need for special licensing, handling or disposal requirements.

The IONSCAN 600 also weighs just 23 pounds (10.4 kg) and is equipped with a built-in handle making it easy to carry. Its hot-swappable battery provides continued sampling and analysis capability, allowing it to be moved while still in use. Low cost, single-use test swabs dramatically reduce operator costs.

Shan Hood, Vice President, Product and Technology, Smiths Detection said: "Accurate explosives detection is crucial for the international security market. The new IONSCAN 600 fits into a layered security approach, delivering the detection capability needed, while helping security professionals minimize overhead through its user-friendly configuration, flexibility, and cost advantages."

It makes its first major market showing at ASIS International, September 29-October 2, Atlanta, GA, USA.
