The TSA VM250 automatically screens vehicular traffic without the need for frequent calibration.
- DRIVE-THROUGH VEHICLE MONITOR
- AUTOMATED INSPECTION OPERATION
- GAMMA AND NEUTRON RADIATION DETECTION
- PROVEN IN HUNDREDS OF DEPLOYMENTS WORLDWIDE
The two pillars of the TSA VM250 are separated by up to 5m. They house the radiation detectors and electronics, including the system controller and occupancy sensors. Operating parameters are easily input with the touchpad on the controller. A rechargeable backup battery supports 8 hours of operation if the main AC power fails. A light indicates a tamper or fault condition.
The TSA VM250 continuously measures the background radiation and signals background alarm conditions. When the occupancy sensors detect a vehicle approaching the monitor, it automatically switches to inspection mode. Radiation alarms are signaled with a flashing light and loud sound. The IP65 rating enables operation in a wide range of environments.
RADIATION DETECTION PERFORMANCE
The TSA VM250 is available with PVT gamma radiation detectors and optional B10, Li6 or He-3 neutron detectors. Radiation detection performance meets the requirements of ANSI N42.35 and IEC 62244. The TSA VM250 is designed to detect SNM, including HEU and Pu-239. Optional radionuclide identification capability using an array of detector materials including NaI, CsI, LaBr, HPGe is available.
The TSA VM250 is compatible with Rapiscan® Systems remote oversight devices, which enable the radiation inspection operation to be overseen from a remote facility. The TSA AM270 local alarm box signals alarms in a nearby guard booth. The TSA KCLOE™ digital oversight system stores and displays inspection data and CCTV images obtained via a wired or wireless network.
