Z-portal for trucks & containers

Z_Portal_II_on_demo_pad_door_closed_407_325

AS&E's Z Portal system uses innovative Z Backscatter technology, which ensures that the system's low radiation dose is safe for operators, drivers, and the environment. In fact, one scan is equivalent to flying one minute at altitude on an airplane.

Supplier: AS-E

Caracteristics

  • Extremely high throughput at 250 trucks per hour
  • Two-sided Forwardscatter® imaging provides enhanced detection of shielded organics, hidden compartments, or other large metallic threats.
  • Inspects trucks and cargo for threats with Z Backscatter and optional dual-energy transmission imaging from three sides simultaneously

AS&E’s Z Portal system uses innovative Z Backscatter technology, which ensures that the system’s low radiation dose is safe for operators, drivers, and the environment. In fact, one scan is equivalent to flying one minute at altitude on an airplane. The Z Portal system meets the manufacturer’s requirements of ANSI N43.17-2009 Radiation Safety for Personnel Security Screening Systems Using X-Ray or Gamma Radiation, which is the standard that the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) references for systems such as Z Portal.

The Z Portal system’s low radiation dosage is safe for operators, drivers, and the environment and falls well within standards set by The International Council on Radiation Protection (ICRP), National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The dose from the Z Portal system is less than 0.05 microSievert per scan (5 microRem per scan).
