Advanced human peak detection algorithms enhance dependability in explosives mode, while multiple points on the sampling wheel speed up down time for clearing between samples, reducing false alarm rates. A unique semi-permeable membrane helps to exclude dust and dirt and can provide continued operation in environments that have high traffic, humidity or contamination. Rapid, automated calibration assures operational accuracy and a verification pen confirms instrument performance and reliability.
Remote control and monitoring capabilities are provided by the SecureStation 2 accessory device to reduce staffing requirements and enhance safety by performing screening while keeping operators at a safe distance. With SecureStation 2 a single operator can remotely monitor up to eight Itemiser FX instruments at a glance. The unit features simple touch screen access and an easy-to-view and navigate flat-panel display.
Substance libraries currently include a wide variety of narcotics and explosives and are readily expandable to accommodate unique user requirements and potential future needs.
Weighing only 31 pounds (14 kg) and featuring built-in handles, the Itemiser FX is easy to transport. An internal, 30-minute battery provides for instrument relocation without having to shut it off, eliminating warm-up time.
