Our entry level product combines our K-120 generator with the long established FlatScan2-15 panel. Compared with traditional fluoroscopic or CCD based portable x-ray equipment, the FlatScan2-15 experience offers superior image quality and ease of use. All for the same investment as the old CCD systems. The result: incredible cost-to-performance benefits.



Designed for rapid deployment and easy operation, FlatScan-Lite offers real-time digital x-ray screening with superb image quality and image processing tools. FlatScan systems are ergonomically designed to meet the needs of field operatives. The high quality images and user-friendly ThreatSpect software enable the operator to acquire and interpret the x-ray image quickly and accurately.



FlatScan-Lite is a lightweight, portable, battery powered x-ray scanning system designed in co-operation with first responders and EOD teams to meet the needs of the field operative.


Quick and simple to deploy, the system produces quality real-time x-ray images for immediate decision making. The detector panel is positioned behind the target; the generator is placed in front. The scan is activated from the laptop imaging station. The 297mm x 206mm imaging area of the FlatScan-Lite enables the operator to scan typical bags and packages in a single scan. Penetrating up to 29mm steel at 120kV the FlatScan-Lite produces submillimetre resolution images.



A range of sophisticated image processing functions, including materials discrimination, pan, zoom, DeepFocus™, 3D Emboss, measurement and annotation, coupled with good quality images enable the operator to interpret the image quickly and accurately. The software can also communicate the image on screen to a remote command centre and save images in JPEG and other common file formats. Ideal for use by First Responders, EOD teams, Counter Surveillance, and Customs and Security Operatives.
