BRAU6045 Checkpoint X-Ray Inspection System

Product Code: Brau6045

The Braun BRAU6045 is intended for visual inspection of various objects (mail, hand-held baggage and other small items) without opening them.

Dual energy imaging provides automatic colour coding of materials with different atomic numbers so that screening staff can easily identify within any parcel dangerous objects or objects that are prohibited for importing (exporting) or are not declared.

The Braun BRAU6045 allows identification of weapons, explosives (including plastic explosives), drugs, primers and dangerous objects, which are a safety hazard.
