NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 20, 2009) - IDO Security, developer of the innovative MagShoe "shoes-on" weapons metal detection system, today announced the availability of the MagShoe 3G, a new model that offers increased coverage of the lower extremities for security scanning. MagShoe 3G now detects concealed weapons up to eight inches from the ground up, doubling the height capacity of previous models to extend security from the shoes and feet to the mid-calf. It also boasts an enhanced screening algorithm, making it even easier for security personnel to identify threats without requiring subjects to remove their shoes.
As with previous models, MagShoe 3G offers a patented step-in design that maximizes convenience while improving security. The portable device offers fast, accurate scanning in about two seconds, making it ideal for use in checkpoints and other high-volume, high-security settings. MagShoe 3G also offers an improved management interface, including the ability to locally store screening results, analyze security screening statistics from the control panel and securely connect to an Ethernet network. This allows the new model to work seamlessly with IDO Security's Network Management and Control (NMC-3) system, which was recently launched to provide centralized remote monitoring and management of up to 300 MagShoe devices installed across one or more facilities.
"We are committed to continuously incorporating the input of our users into ongoing product development. The new MagShoe design reflects valuable feedback from our global clients and partners, as well as on-the-ground testing with security staff and local agents in prisons, international airports and more," said Dan Werber at IDO Security. "MagShoe 3G continues to fill a void in the security market not fully addressed by traditional walkthrough and handheld detection systems, offering even greater coverage and increased functionality to address the world's most stringent security requirements."
