Torrance, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Rapiscan Systems, Inc., a leading global supplier of security inspection systems, today announced the launch of the Metor 6E walk through metal detector. Developed for critical infrastructure protection in demanding environments, such as airport checkpoints, the Metor 6E offers a high-throughput rate combined with superior threat detection.
The Metor 6E is a user-friendly, regulatory-compliant solution that offers customers outstanding performance and return on their investments. Featuring a two-dimensional location display function, the Metor 6E has an industry-leading 60-segment location display, enabling operators to locate alarmed items quickly and accurately. With advanced immunity in the presence of electrical instruments or other walk-through metal detectors, the Metor 6E mitigates the impact of possible external interference.
"Rapiscan’s Metor line of metal detectors has been screening people for over 40 years and is known for its durability, reliability and ease-of-use," said Brad Buswell, president, Aviation Programs, Rapiscan Systems. "Expanding on these basic principles, the Metor 6E has been updated to include new capabilities to meet the ever-changing threat environment. This latest detector combines the strictest regulatory level detection performance with the most accurate location function in the market for use in even the most demanding environments.”
The Metor 6E meets both the EU Standard 2 performance requirements for walk through metal detectors for aviation as well as the U.S. National Institutes of Justice (NIJ) threat detection standards for medium to large threats. Additionally, with easy upgrades by SD card, the Metor 6E is capable of adopting new detection parameters, language revisions and other added features, ensuring that checkpoints are future-proofed and able to accommodate the latest threat detection capabilities.
