Cabinet X-ray Scanners

Cabinet X-ray scanners provide a compact, cost effective threat detection solution without the space requirements and operating costs of a conveyor based X-ray system. At Todd Research we have extensive experience with cabinet scanners and offer a choice of two innovative products in this space, each catering for different business requirements.
The mid-size TR15 cabinet scanner is the most popular model in the Todd Research range. With its generous 1.44mᶟ chamber it meets the demands of almost all busy mail room situations while taking up minimal operating space. The TR15 Smart Scan comes equipped with the EPD™ (Enhanced Powder Detection) feature, the scanner has a heightened ability to threats conveyed via powder-based elements.

The very latest generation TR40 +Smart Scan is the largest cabinet scanner in the range, the generous chamber can accommodate mail sacks, large boxes and courier deliveries, with its one touch operation the TR40 allows rapid processing of scanned items all within a compact footprint.

Conveyor X-ray Scanners

Todd Research is a leading supplier of conveyor x-ray scanners and baggage scanning systems. Our image recognition technology quickly and easily identifies the material composition of scanned objects and enables (TIP) Threat Image Projection; a virtual image management tool, which ensures that screening performance is always maximised.
Todd Research have a range of Conveyor X-ray scanners to suit individual requirements, providing effective inspection of small bags and parcels, to hand-held baggage, luggage and large cargo.

Our latest TR50 and TR70 Conveyor X-ray Scanners come with bi-directional scanning ability, automatic belt control, optional Automatic Detection System (ADS) and image enhancement tools.

Metal Detection Systems

Todd Research offers a range of state-of-the-art metal detection systems, ranging from various walk-through detectors and hand held metal detectors for security screening to the innovative Search Pole range.

The PD6500i Walk Through Archway utilizes Garrett’s exclusive digital signal processor (DSP)-based technology to provide superior target detection coverage on the left, centre and right side of the body from head to toe. Zone adjustment enables maximum detection regardless of environmental challenges. Easy-to view eye-level pacing lights with international “wait” and “proceed” symbols on the entrance side of each panel.

The TR360, TR360-HT and TR36PRO+ Search Pole’s patented, core technology platform is the most portable full body scan system available worldwide and the latest technological advancement for large weapon threat detection.  These search poles use ferromagnetic detection, making them ideal for detecting items containing significant amounts of ferrous materials, such as knives, guns and mobile phones.

Mobile Trace Detection

With today’s heightened threat of terrorism, security professionals at nuclear power plants, embassies, high-risk facilities, transportation, and government agencies are exploring explosives trace detection equipment, as part of a robust security strategy to help protect the public and vital infrastructure from threats.

The TR-TRACE mobile trace unit can detect and identify a wide variety of explosives including pure explosive and composite explosives under different humidity and pressure conditions in vapour or trace (particles mode).
The TR-TRACE is efficient both indoors and outdoors at temperatures above zero, it does not contain any radiation sources, it does not require any special consumables and it has a warm up time of less than 1 minute.

TR-TRACE is easy to use, and no special training is required. Presence of explosives in the sample are visualized on the device’s LCD display or on any Wi-Fi device that can work as a remote control.
