Portable EOD X-ray generators and security systems are widespread.  The ability to see what is inside a suspect package is invaluable.  Bomb squads, military, police, security and special forces rely on them to make quick decisions on any possible threat.  They are key to neutralising dangerous objects and exposing hoax threats. 

Our I-Gen IED / EOD X-ray generators are part of our Threatscan® LS1, LS2 and LSC portable X-ray security systems.  They offer detailed threat detection for packages that may containing bombs; powders; bio-hazards; chemicals; needles; razor blades or incendiary devices.

Our versatile I-GEN is robust and user-friendly. It is ready for use within a seconds of arrival at a scene. Being small and battery-powered makes it perfect for rapid on-site deployment. It is also easy to deploy, even when space is tight.

The I-Gen enables our Threatscan® system detectors to produce high quality real-time x-ray images.  This supports rapid, accurate decision making.  Scanning is activated from a remote laptop imaging station and can penetrate up to 34mm of solid steel.

The system offers speed, accuracy and materials differentiation.  This gives security professionals the information they need allowing them to make quick, accurate decisions. It also helps clear hoax threats and reduce the number of uncertain or false positive identifications.  The time needed to return an area to normal use after an incident is greatly reduced.

3DX-ray’s introduction of advanced security x-ray generators, screens and software helps minimise the chaos caused by security threats and hoaxes. It increases the safety of the both the security specialists and the public at large.
