eXaminer XLB

The high-performance certified explosive detection system large airports have been waiting years for…

The revolutionary eXaminer XLB is the first certified explosives detection system (EDS) specifically optimized for screening checked baggage at large airports. Capable of scanning up to 1200 bags per hour (in-line), it keeps bags continuously moving through a meter-wide CT scanner at an unprecedented speed of 0.34 meters per second. Combining high-resolution helical CT with dual-energy imaging, the XLB meets the latest rigorous detection standards and provides the most advanced 3-D imaging.

Featuring industry-leading 3-D Continuous Flow CT technology, the eXaminer XLB quickly and accurately scans entire bags and automatically assesses explosive threats. Operators can view 3-D images of alarmed bags in their entirety or individual threat objects from any angle to help resolve alarms quickly and confidently.

The eXaminer XLB retains the footprint of the eXaminer 3DX, allowing for easy installation and integration with current baggage handling systems. An innovative brushless power and data transfer system improves reliability and reduces preventative maintenance downtime. Flexible networking options link hold baggage systems of any configuration (SX, 3DX, XLB and MVT-HR) with their respective viewing systems and search workstations over a secure network. Workflow management features optimize staff utilization, enabling airports to realize the lowest possible staffing and operating costs.

The eXaminer XLB is the highest-performance in-line CT EDS available-delivering reliable threat detection and exceptionally fast baggage processing with fewer bags sent to costly secondary search.
