Mobile X-ray scanner HBI-120

The handheld Backscatter Imager HBI-120 opens up new options for discovering, localization and jugdement of hidden objects. It is ideal in order to discover anomalies and the inspection of conspicuous vehicles and peculiar freights. Without the need to open up suitcases, containers, doors and cupboards concealed items like smuggled goods, money, narcotics, explosives, weapons can easily be found. With the optimized x-ray tube of 120 keV the HBI-120 can even go through 3,1 mm of steel. As a comparison: a car door is about 1 mm thick. The Backscatter imager does only need to be moved at the outside of a container and the user can see in real-time on the high-resolution screen a two-dimensional picture. Anomalies are seen right away. Investigations can be directly introduced.
