02PN20<sup>&trade;</sup>v3 Elliptic

The 02PN20v3 Elliptic is a security checkpoint station, compliant with COVID containment requirements which offers state-of-the-art features for the security and protection of inspection personnel and inspected persons.


02PN20<sup>&trade;</sup>v3 Elliptic - detail

Optimised touchscreen user interface for managing checks and displaying alerts

The rapid spread of COVID-19 infections has required the introduction of containment measures at all levels. Measures include the use of face masks, social distancing and also the measurement of body temperature as an indicator of possible virus infections.

Security checkpoints at the entries to airports and other sensitive buildings should now be equipped with security systems compliant with the new measures. This means detecting target threats with the minimum rate of nuisance alarms in order to:

  • Limit the number of secondary checks necessary
  • Reduce contacts between checkpoint operators and persons in transit
  • Reduce waiting times upstream from the system.
All in all, this requires a metal detector with a very low nuisance alarm rate.

In order to comply with COVID containment measures, screening operations should also include the measurement of body surface temperature to intercept fever temperatures.

This has to be done without adding any extra manual operations and avoiding any contact between screeners and the persons screened.

Anti-Covid compliant security checkpoint

  • Detection of metallic threats in accordance with security level settings. This is done by a next-generation inductive detector with high range uniformity and excellent discrimination of metal personal effects thereby reducing the number of secondary checks necessary
  • High accuracy detection zone display for individual and multiple objects to speed up screening operations
  • Body surface temperature measurement using a combined visible-infrared multispectral system which automatically indicates the maximum value and signals an alarm when the legal threshold is exceeded
  • Continuous calibration of the thermal measuring system using two grey stabilised bodies
  • Transit direction and count verification with synchronization of the temperature measurement of the inspected person inside the gate. This ensures maximum accuracy and unique signalling
  • Display of alarm signals on a standard operator interface on a kiosk fitted with a PC monitor
  • Additional optional sensors for detecting radioactive material or cell phones

Checkpoint monitoring and recording

  • Detailed reporting of the transits data and the security device configuration data
  • Data collection from each gate detailing the information on every single transit including body temperature, metal alarms and gamma alarms (optional)
  • Monitoring of the functionality of each gate
  • Setting of the gate working parameters
  • Metal and high temperature alarms
  • Gamma alarms (optional)
  • Cell phone alarms (optional)
  • High security data encryption
  • Transits flow monitoring

Software features
