  • The XIS-1517 is a premier heavy duty system with a tunnel opening of 1500 x 1703 mm (59” x 67”).

    The XIS-1517 is especially designed for screening crates, cargo and pallet sized objects at all security sites, including airports and customs locations.

    It incorporates a low conveyor height of just 300 mm (1 ft) above floor level to enable easy loading and unloading of heavy freight.

    It is equipped with a standard 180 kV generator, but generator upgrades are also available at 200 kV, 250 kV, 320 kV and 450 kV making it an extremely versatile piece of kit.

    Like many of the X-ray threat detection systems in the Astrophysics range, the XIS-1517 is qualified by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

    The XIS-1517 consistently delivers high quality imaging and outstanding performance. The XIS-1517 is your solution to advanced cargo screening.
