Adding the detection standard 6.2, Level 1 capability to the HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX scanner will permit the scanner to operate at an enhanced level with lower false alarm rates.

By generating 3D images in real-time, HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX operators can inspect baggage at every angle to make more precise assessments on bag contents.

"The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX offers the advanced screening of carry-on baggage, improving security, reducing the burden on operators, and giving passengers piece of mind, making it a key piece of equipment for tackling current and future threats.”
