2020/21 Portable X-ray solutions and their real use-cases explained
In this article we discuss when, why and how to use portable X-ray systems. Furthermore, we will describe three portable X-ray solutions from Logos Imaging LLC.
When to use portable X-ray detection solutions?
Every threat is different in urgency, size, location, detectability, traceability and how to control it. But what if homeland security personnel find a suspicious suitcase at a large train station, e.g. Utrecht central station or Schiphol airport? Because there could be a lot at stake, the first step is to find out if it is potentially dangerous.
Why using portable X-ray detection solutions?
The starting point is to have as few people as possible involved in this threat identification process. Fortunately, today’s X-ray technology offers great opportunities in inspecting the contents of a suspicious package, fast, remotely and even at a safe distance. That’s where portable X-ray flat panel systems from Logos Imaging come to play.
How to use portable X-ray from Logos Imaging?
The systems from Logos Imaging are equipped with a high quality Golden Engineering X-ray source. The source and flat panel operate wireless, but cabled is also possible. The panels contain a long high capacity dispensable battery, are free of shattering glass (amorphous silicon TFT), are shockproof, withstand a 1 meter drop and are IP certified (up to IP67).
Connecting the flat panel and X-ray source is easy, thanks to the laptop/tablet PC, which is equipped with ingenious easy-to-use software (watch the below video for video instructions). When connected, a high resolution X-ray image is being made within a couple of seconds. Make sure you and your security personnel are at a safe distance when taking the X-ray image. Exposure to ionizing radiation is a risk to human health.
