The SABRE 5000 is the smallest, lightest tri-mode handheld system available for detecting trace amounts of explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals or narcotics.
New key features for the SABRE 5000 tri-mode detector include an expanded vapor detection capability giving a wider range of substance identification, faster clear-down for better throughput and built-in troubleshooting for an improved user experience. These new attributes, combined with the award-winning design and performance of the earlier SABRE 4000, provide a key tool in protecting the world’s critical infrastructures, ports and borders, transportation systems and military bases.
Using Smiths Detection's proven Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) technology the SABRE 5000 is programmed to detect and identify over 40 threat substances in approximately 20 seconds. Threats such as common peroxide-based, volatile and unstable chemicals often used to construct Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), and ammonium nitrate commonly used in home-made explosives.
Particle and Vapor Trace Detection
The versatile SABRE 5000 is capable of analyzing either trace particle or vapor samples, expanding the range of threats the system can detect. The operator can select
the best analysis method for the suspected threat to yield the most accurate analysis results. Switching between sampling modes takes only seconds.
Auto-Switching Vapor (ASV) Modes
The ASV-Explosives mode offers an optimized detection in both negative and positive mode for an increased range of explosives detection from single sample. To detect CWA/TIC substances, the ASV-CWA/TIC mode offers Emergency Responders flexibility to continuously sample vapor without the need for switching between positive and negative modes. When the system is used in a fixed location the display screen can easily be rotated 180° for easy viewing.
