Manual bag scanner

March 2015 Security Services & Risk Management, Asset Management, EAS, RFID

X-ray baggage scanners are commonly used to screen bags, baggage and accessories before entering a walk-through metal detector for security screening. Those baggage scanners can penetrate closed bags, boxes etc., but the picture displayed needs to be interpreted and classified to the content by security operators, who are trained in a one or two days course only. For this kind of job in medicine a radiologist has to study several years.

In many security applications, X-ray scanners do not really match customers’ requirements as important information like individual (scratch) marks, serial numbers or barcodes of scanned goods are not visible. X-ray scanners are heavy, power consuming, expensive and a bit dangerous too.

The newly developed Roteck V-Scan bag inspection unit is designed for fast, discreet, non-contact and non-radiation bag screening. It’s easy to operate, light weight, and optionally, fully battery operated and portable.

V-Scan consists of an automatic belt conveyer, a semi-closed inspection chamber and a built-in high sensitivity metal detector for additional threat discrimination. The unit does not penetrate closed bags, but scans optically open bags and other goods for inspection from different angles and under optimised light conditions, even remotely. Additional real-time evidence footage is taken from the entry and the exit site of the inspection tunnel and an ID and/or fingerprint reader can also be employed on request. V-Scan monitors and automatically displays and records up to six different internal plus two external views simultaneously, including time stamp and sound.

V-Scan is able to identify and record marks, serial numbers, ID documents, barcodes and any other optical signs for identification and classification without the necessity of interpretation. It operates with any laptop or computer and costs only a fraction of an X-ray scanner.
