  • CEIA USA Unveils Groundbreaking Third Generation Network Upgrade Module
Designed around client requirements, the newly released APSIM/3 network module is now available as an upgrade to any CEIA Walk-Through Metal Detector for the added capability of being managed over a network.

The APSIM/3 module can remotely track and download recent transit results even without the use of a centralized networking software package. With the module’s included web interface, the user just logs into the network to obtain basic graphs and transit reports as well as control the basic parameters for any detector connected. The module also offers the capability to update the metal detector’s firmware and track important configuration information for initial and subsequent setups.

The APSIM/3 module is primarily used to connect with CEIA’s NetID Software. NetID is the market leader for robust metal detector connectivity with secure, failure resistant communications. It has been the backbone for many large federal, commercial and local installations for years.

Networking can save labor costs related to monitoring and tracking a fleet of detectors while still obtaining valuable information when needed. Here is a quick example of the benefits to networking:

An arena used by an NBA basketball team and for various musical and family performances utilized NetID to be able to quickly adjust their large fleet of metal for the type of event taking place. Instead of walking from machine to machine, they can quickly and automatically convert every detector in the arena to detect different threat objects from the NetID workstation. This saves not just labor hours, but also improves response time and eliminates the chance of different settings on different equipment.

The simple addition of the APSIM/3 network module increases efficiency since monitoring can now be centralized and multiple trips to various detector locations can be eliminated. Even with its enhanced interface and other new features, the module is available at a greatly reduced price because of recent technological advances. Contact your CEIA representative for more information.

  • CEIA USA Launches Automatic Screening Device for Non-Metallic Cargo: detect detonators and metal components of explosive devices hidden inside commercial cargo
CEIA USA, the world leader in threat detection technologies, announced today the availability of a solution that will drastically improve the screening of non-metallic commercial cargo such as produce, seafood, meats, printed materials, flowers and apparel. The EMIS (Electro-Magnetic Inspection Scanner) quickly and accurately screens packages or pallets using a harmless, low intensity electromagnetic field to ensure there are no explosive devices hidden within. This method of inspection does not require visual interpretation of an image, unlike typical x-ray scanners. Threats can be identified throughout the entire stack of cargo minimizing operator interaction with the goods.

Background

In 2007, Congress passed the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act more commonly known as the 9/11 Act. This new law mandated that all cargo transported on a passenger aircraft be screened for explosives by August 1, 2010. TSA developed the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) as a solution to help industry reach the 100 percent screening mandate. The program enables freight forwarders and shippers to pre-screen cargo, avoiding any potential bottlenecks at the airport. Facilities such as manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centers, third party logistics providers, indirect air carriers, airport cargo handlers, and independent cargo screening facilities may apply for the CCSP.

Details

The EMIS can be utilized at these types of facilities to satisfy program requirements and is available in four models depending on their screening needs: EMIS6047 for small packages, EMIS8075 for medium to large packages and EMIS110160 or EMIS130160 for palletized cargo. Each model offers the following benefits:
  • Fast, real-time analysis
  • Automatic detection with no nuisance alarms
  • No dedicated operator needed for use
  • Completely solid-state construction (no periodic maintenance or calibration required)
  • Complete data logging and traceability
  • Safe for operators and screened cargo (no ionizing radiation)

  • CEIA USA, which has provided metal detection solutions to a variety of industries for many years, presents the CEIA SMD601 Multi-Zone Plus metal detector complying with ALL the required sections of the NIJ Standard 0601.02 (U.S. Dep. Of Justice).
CEIA USA, which has provided metal detection solutions to a variety of industries for many years, presents the CEIA SMD601 Multi-Zone Plus metal complying with ALL the required sections of the NIJ Standard 0601.02 (U.S. Dep. Of Justice) that establishes requirements of sensitivity, discrimination and immunity for law enforcement and correctional facilities. Because the CEIA SMD601 Multi-Zone Plus Metal Detector was specifically designed with this standard in mind it is excellent for detecting conventional weapons, such as guns and knives, but it is also extremely good at detecting small, hard-to-find items that could be considered a threat to officer and prisoner safety such as razor blades, handcuff keys, or screwdriver bits. It also has exceptional immunity to environmental interference which allows it to be easily installed and operated in any location. Analysis of the person passing through is quick and accurate.

The three levels of security specified by the standard (Large, Medium and Small object size) are pre-loaded in the metal detector and can be selected directly by the user via a simple operation at the control unit that has anti-vandalism construction to prevent abuse and unwanted programming. A full-height light bar displays the vertical location of the detected metal masses in transit. This results in rapid identification of threats and a reduction or elimination of manual searches. The technology used in the SMD601 Multi-Zone Plus is completely harmless, yet can detect items concealed inside the body, thus eliminate the need for costly, ineffective body orifice screening devices.
