Simultaneous, real-time detection of explosives particulates and vapors with or without physical contact
The QS-H150 is a handheld explosives detector that rapidly detects and identifies trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives (HMEs). The QS-H150’s innovative design includes a patented heated vortex collector and patented non–radioactive ion mobility spectrometry technology. These provide operational advantages that make the detector highly effective in real world situations – advantages proven time and again in customer evaluations.
Operation and maintenance expenses are extremely low with the QS-H150. Consumables costs are greatly minimized. Routine maintenance consists only of cleaning, using common supplies and desiccant replacement as required. No radioactive materials are used in the QS-H150, so there are no associated certification, licensing, inspection, testing or decommissioning costs.
The QS-H150 is portable, easy-to-use, and offers the choice of collecting samples directly from a surface or using sample traps. The system’s real-time detection algorithm delivers fast results, alerting the operator as soon as a threat is detected. It also minimizes system contamination, allowing the QS-H150 to be ready for the next sample in seconds, even after a positive detection.
The presence of a threat is indicated by both visible and audible alarms, with the substance identification displayed on the integrated LCD screen. A standard monitor and USB keyboard may be connected at any time for access to spectrogram display and analysis tools, administrative tools, and diagnostics.
