Ensuring the best possible security measure to visitors and for them to enjoy the premises in comfort and safety is important. Therefore, booking in at a resort or hotel does not have to be challenging and should not take time.
With security being paramount, it is more important than ever to invest in the right kind of security X-ray inspection systems. X-ray baggage inspection systems help keep your guests, assets and facility safe. Weapons, explosives and narcotics are just some of the contraband security personnel must deal with. Dangerous goods must be inspected before any guest is allowed entry to your premises or else it could end up in the wrong hands. Arenas and crowded events must be secured to keep both public and VIPs safe. And critical infrastructure around the world must be protected from internal and external intruders looking to do harm.
An X-ray inspection system identifies harmful organic, inorganic and metal materials. Different materials absorb rays at different levels. Security X-ray machines spot dangerous items by looking at the mass density and atomic number of the substances of the materials that pass through it. Metal, organic and inorganic materials show up differently on the screen. Organic items will appear as orange. Generally, explosives are made from organic materials, thus allowing personnel reading the X-ray scanners to identify threats. If an object’s mass and density fall within the range of a dangerous material, X-ray scanners will warn the operator of a potential hazardous object.
ZKTeco’s X-ray inspection systems increase the operator’s ability to identify potential threats; our devices are designed to scan the objects up to a size of 100 × 80 cm and make use of a reliable high quality dual energy X-ray generator. With the superb image algorithm, ZKTeco’s X-ray inspection systems could offer clear scanning image, which allows operators to identify potential threat items visually. Also, our X-ray inspection systems are equipped with a lowered conveyor height to make it easier to put the luggage on. ZKTeco’s X-ray inspection systems have innovative biometric identify function for operators, improving the security of the system and preventing the operator from forgetting a password.
The way to judge the capability of an X-ray inspection system is to look for what it can offer your staff and facility. You need to ask yourself: is it easy to use? Will I have to train my staff for hours or days? What is the quality of the images? How easily are dangerous items detectable on the screen? How frequently does this machine produce a false alarm? Does this machine shorten inspection time and reduce human error, or is it producing many false positives?
Eliminate the need for human intervention and thus human error by investing in an X-ray inspection system, which will quickly and efficiently detect any unwanted or dangerous items. ZKTeco has a whole range of X-ray inspection systems specifically designed to meet the requirements of airports, customs facilities, prisons, parcel services etc. whenever high security screening is needed.
