HI-SCAN 6040C is designed to detect prohibited items and threats by screening bags and packages at security checkpoints. It is ideally suited for public buildings such as prisons, courthouses, embassies, banks and hotels, where its contemporary design and small footprint fit well into any entrance environment.

HI-SCAN 6040C is the result of Smiths Detection’s preeminence in X-ray technology: more than 40 years of experience in delivering engineering excellence to meet the highest security standards with proven product reliability.

HI-SCAN 6040C is equipped with a 160kV generator, known for producing high quality X-ray images to make it easy for operators to identify potential threats quickly, while minimizing misinterpretations. New smart image display features such as Organic Only Plus, Organic Stripping Plus and Organic Enhancement give outstanding discrimination between organic and inorganic materials on screen – useful for reliable and rapid detection of threat items such as explosive devices, drugs, food or money.

Additionally, a new Optimized Background Contrast function significantly enhances the recognisability of objects.

Smart system monitoring features such as Power-on Self-Test during start-up and specific diagnosis tools such as Real-time Background Diagnosis and Real-time System Feedback, during operation, provide instant information about the system’s status and ensure easy operation. These features support the operator or technician by providing critical system diagnostics, helping to expedite maintenance and service.

The new HiTraX 3 electronics and software provide a reliable platform for future upgrades to meet changing security requirements.

HI-SCAN 6040C can easily be used in combination with other security technologies from Smiths Detection, including people screening and trace detection of narcotics or explosives.
