Based on the company’s ABRATM technology, the HCVP 6030 viZual system is designed primarily for high-volume cargo screening and can inspect up to 100 trucks or container loads per hour. The system uses the most powerful HCV technology platform, incorporating optical character recognition, automatic radiation detection, EDI and remote service maintenance.
Interest in the new cargo screener is already significant, with a series of orders placed even before the official launch.
Mal Maginnis, president of Smiths Detection, said, “Its combination of proven high-energy X-ray technology and advanced material discrimination provides best-in-class performance at the lowest total cost of ownership. It is ideal for rapid cargo throughput with high safety standards for truck drivers and operators alike. It also greatly expands contraband detection technologies, allowing customs quick and effective enforcement of tax, revenue and fraud laws.”
