Smiths Detection’s HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX Gains ECAC EDS CB C3 Approval

Smiths Detection has gained ECAC EDS CB C3 approval for its HI-SCAN 6040 CTiX checkpoint scanner. The system generates precise 3D images which, combined with the capability for automatic explosive detection, eliminates the need to remove electronic devices and liquids from hand luggage (subject to local authority guidelines). It integrates into current security lanes and is also expected to improve productivity, passenger experience and lower operational costs.

Removing the need to take out electronic devices and liquids from hand luggage means handling fewer, trays which can significantly increase checkpoint throughput and the 0.2m/s belt speed and low false alarm rate also speed up the process.
