  • The same technology that made the ZBV® system the top-selling cargo and vehicle inspection system in the world, now in a small form factor
  • Unlike density meters, trace detectors, or portable transmission X-ray systems, the MINI Z system produces an easy-to-interpret image to quickly locate organic contraband behind non-metallic surfaces.
  • The MINI Z system is self-contained and does not require set-up: enabling immediate operation. As an operator scans a target, an image appears in real-time on the system’s dedicated tablet.

The MINI Z system is safe for operators, bystanders, and the environment. The system’s X-ray dose conforms with the appropriate ANSI, ICRP, NCRP, and EURATOM radiation safety standards. Although the MINI Z is a low-energy and low-dose Z Backscatter system, it is not designed to scan people. The MINI Z system must be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and under the jurisdiction of local laws and regulations


  • Completely self-contained: Does not require physical set-up, enabling immediate operation; Battery operated, wireless communications (Wi-Fi)
