Despite being remarkably lightweight, incredibly thin, portable and battery powered 3DX-RAY ’s ThreatScan®-LS1 is a powerful large format x-ray scanning system. The large 600mm x 460mm imaging area of the ThreatScan®-LS1 enables typical bags and packages to be scanned in one scan. This powerful system penetrates up to 34mm steel at 120kV, producing high quality, sub-millimetre resolution images.



You’ll find ThreatScan®-LS1 being used for suspect bag and package inspection in locations such as mass transit rail and bus stations, shopping malls, airports, stadia and sports arenas. The system is also used for general security inspection by first responders such as Police, Military and Private and Government Security agencies.



Quick and simple to deploy, the system produces high quality real-time x-ray images for rapid and accurate decision making. The slim detector panel is positioned behind the target; the generator is placed in front. The scan is activated from the laptop imaging station. The large 600mm x 460mm imaging area of the ThreatScan®-LS1 enables the operator to scan typical bags and packages in a single scan.



Penetrating up to 34mm steel at 120kV the LS1 produces sub-millimetre resolution images. A range of sophisticated image processing functions, including materials discrimination, pan, zoom, DeepFocus™, 3D Emboss, measurement and annotation, coupled with high 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
