- Enhanced Detection Capability - The Z Portal system's new, innovative detector design brings improved detection capability to the system by capturing dual-energy transmission images in addition to its Forwardscatter and signature Z Backscatter images. This unique combination of technologies provides superior material discrimination while also highlighting organic and metallic anomalies, giving operators more information about the contents of the vehicle and enabling them to find more threats and contraband.
- Higher Throughput Screening - The next generation Z Portal system allows for increased vehicle speeds of up to 20 kph (12.4 mph) and high-throughput screening of up to 400 passenger vehicles or 250 trucks per hour. The innovative X-ray source assembly design enables the higher throughput rates without sacrificing image quality, giving ports and borders an ideal solution for primary or secondary screening of cargo and vehicles.
- Compact, Efficient Design - AS&E's newly redesigned system fits into existing traffic lanes and easily integrates into diverse customer sites. A wide array of optional features and operating concepts allows for adaptation to each customer's unique workflow and security requirements. Installation and relocation is simplified by the innovative surface-mount design, which eliminates the need for extensive civil works construction. The compact system is available in two configurations — one for large trucks, buses, and cargo vehicles and a smaller size for passenger vehicles — and is safe for drivers, operators, scanned cargo, and the environment.
