Mobile X-ray scanner - Views through 4 mm thick steel
Nighthawk HBI models are rugged, ergonomically designed mobile X-ray scanners. They can be used to quickly, risk-free and efficiently inspect abandoned luggage, suspect vehicles, suspicious shipments of goods and more to detect hidden contraband, drug packages, explosives or weapons. The handheld Nighthawk-HBI models are easy to use and a reliable partner in customs and border and vehicle inspections.
With their optimized 120 keV/5 W or 140 keV/7 W X-ray tube, Nighthawk-HBI models will screen most materials. Even 4 mm thick steel sheet can be penetrated. By comparison, modern car body walls are only 1 – 2 mm thick. When the X-ray scanner is moved slowly and without contact over the object to be inspected, a 2-dimensional image is generated in real time on the high-resolution color display. The housing is extremely robust and protected against dust and splash water. A built-in camera with flash light allows the examination to be recorded. Via WIFI or Bluetooth the images can be downloaded.
Integrated display – innovative application
Detector, screen and user interface are integrated into the device. This enables images to be taken in places where a regular X-ray unit cannot be used, such as from a bird's eye view, on walls, doors, mounted car tires, on the glove compartment, etc. Use in corners and close to the floor is also possible.
- Non-contact scanning
- Look through different surfaces
- Even looks through steel up to 4 mm thick
- Small and handy, weighs only 4.4 kg
- Easy to operate
- With integrated detector
- Detect hidden objects (e.g. weapons, drug packages)
- Switchable WINGBAR function (optional) for even more parallel evaluations
