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. The HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX utilises Computer Tomography (CT) technology to deliver a very high level of detection. 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.
Shan Hood, President of Smiths Detection Inc. said: “We’re delighted to have achieved this certification, which highlights our commitment to ensuring our detection equipment and technology meets the highest operating standards.

"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.”
