B-SCAN 16HR-LD 100

Transmission X-ray people screening

Feature Highlights

  • Detects contraband and threat objects concealed in or on the body including weapons, explosives, narcotics, etc.
  • High throughput – scan time less than 7 seconds
  • Complete head-to-toe inspection even if shoes are worn
  • Very low dose rates


The B-SCAN series helps to reduce the smuggling of drugs, weapons, mobile phones and other contraband.

It is available in four models, to support both general and limited-use applications, in accordance with ANSI N43.17 2009 guidelines.

General-use refers to screening systems that use extremely low X-ray dose rates to screen a person. The dose rate is so low that there is, in effect, no need to monitor the number of screenings an individual can have in a year.

16HR-LD 100 – Our lowest-dose system is for applications such as regular inmate screening for contraband. Operating at 0.1µSv per inspection, allowing for 2,500 scans/year.
16HR-LD 250 – Operates at a dose rate of 0.25µSv per inspection (1,000 scans/year).
Limited use refers to screening systems that use a higher dose rate per scan to provide superior images. The use of these systems must be controlled and the annual scan count for a given person is limited. Scan and Image Management (SIM) software is used to fully log and control the use of the system so that any individual receives only the appropriate number of scans.

16HR-DV –This dual-view system delivers high-resolution full-body and torso images and is best suited to applications such as customs drug detection. Operates at <4.5µSv per inspection (according to the ANSI guidelines, this would allow ~55 scans/year).
16HR-FB – Provides a full-body X-ray image, with excellent image quality. Operates at 2.0µSv per inspection (according to the ANSI guidelines, this would allow ~125 scans/year). This model is ideally suited for screening higher-security inmates.
Because B-SCAN uses fixed sensor components, it is a reliable and easy-to-maintain system, with low costs of ownership over its lifetime.

There are currently several hundred B-SCAN systems in use around the world in a variety of applications, such as prisons, airports and customs checkpoints. Other applications include mines and refineries, helping to reduce incidents of diamond, gem and precious-metal thefts by employees.

All models have been independently verified to meet the ANSI guidelines.
