6 Colour Imaging

6 Colour Imaging Technology uses imaging analysis to assign colours based on the effective atomic number.

This technique provides better differentiation of items which may have similar composition; each screened object appears in one of the 6 colours based upon a specific range of atomic numbers.

3 Colour vs 6 Colour imaging  

This imaging feature uses imaging analysis to assign colours based on the effective atomic number. 6 Colour imaging provides better differentiation of items which may have similar composition; each screened object appears in one of the 6 colours based upon a specific range of atomic numbers.

Competitor’s 3 Colour imaging systems do not provide the operator with as much information as 6 Colour Imaging.

6 Colour imaging provides material discrimination

6 Colour imaging provides material discrimination allowing the operator to determine between threat and non-threat items, the operator is able to interpret the X-Ray image more quickly and isolate threats with better precision, this increases both throughput and detection accuracy.

6 Colour is most effective when used in combination with the Screener Assist Optional Feature.

Notice how the explosive appears light brown in the screened image on the bottom right using 6 Colour Imaging, the same explosive remains orange in 3 Colour Imaging.

Another example is the glass cup appears yellow while utilising 6 Colour, but remains green in 3 Colour. The additional colours shown in the screened images are a few examples of how 6 Colour Imaging adds a unique image differentiation. Advantages of 6 Colour Imaging versus 3 Colour are numerous and may vary by application. With minimal time to identify the various threats common to the field or area, the utilisation of 6 Colour Imaging enables high security threats to be more easily identified by operators.
