WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - October 29, 2010) - Iscon is introducing an enhanced version of the 1000D whole body scanner equipped with optional biometric technologies and identity verification techniques that will vastly improve security at corrections facilities, law enforcement as well as international airports.
The Iscon 1000D is the only whole body imaging portal that can be integrated with state of the art technologies to detect virtually any object, without radiation or privacy issues and confirm that the person is indeed who they claim to be. This is critical in prisons as inmates try to pose as others to escape as well as airport security to speed processing, identify terrorists and discover contraband.
Iscon1000D uses thermo-conductive infrared technology that completes a 360°scan in 30 seconds, reveals a multitude of objects, but doesn't penetrate clothing, so there's no privacy or radiation issues.
It can detect the thermal imprint of any object that many scanners miss, including:
The enhanced Iscon system is less expensive than other whole body imaging systems, requires a smaller footprint and completes scan and detection in 30 seconds without radiation or privacy issues since infrared doesn't penetrate clothing.
