BV 5030CA

The BV 5030CA is the most compact ADANI's security solution, specially developed for security sensitive areas with limited space for placement of security equipment

Back to Baggage Inspection Section

The X-ray baggage system BV 5030CA provides the effective inspection of handbags and small baggage within the limited space and unequipped inspection area. It can be easily relocated without any need for special equipment.

BV 5030CA allows identification of weapons, explosives (including plastic explosives), drugs, primers and dangerous objects, which are safety hazard by identification of substances with effective atomic number.

Dual energy imaging of the system with automatic color coding of materials having different atomic numbers helps screening specialits to easily identify dangerous objects inside any parcel.



Compact size and a light weight

The system can be easily relocated by several persons. It can easily pass through the majority of standard doorways. It can be installed at any place suitable for the user or even on the table.

Automatic gun detection software

Automatic gun detection software can detect standard pistols and revolvers of the small size and weighting minimum 300 g. The automatic evaluation function marks dangerous objects in the images displayed to the operator in real-time mode.

Retractable touchscreen

The system is standardly equipped with a convenient touchscreen display, that can be folded inside the top cover and locked to avoid interference or damage.

Maximum ease of operation

Even a freshman can operate the system. A number of functions for automatic dangerous objects detection is applied for convenient and easy application.

Adaptive cooling system

The operation of the cooling fans is automatically adjusted depending on the intensity of scanner operation. This results in reduction of the scanner noise.


Application of the low radiation dose operation mode - 100 kV – makes it possible in some cases to operate the system without special permit.

The fault-tolerant configuration of acquisition/analysis workstation

A special configuration of the operator’s workstation makes its software resistant to viruses and other harmful interference. The system shutdown occurs immediately and safe for the equipment and data.

Automatic identification of suspicious objects (drugs, explosives) and highlighting of optically dense objects

Algorithms used in software enable automatic highlighting of such objects as weapons, explosives, narcotics, as well as opaque areas, where dangerous object may be concealed.These functions improve operating efficiency.

Quick start-up and shutdown

Due to the new configuration of hardware the system becomes ready for operation within 30 seconds. Instant shutdown of the system is now also possible.

Multilanguage interface

Including English, German, Russian, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Arabic, Chinese and any other language on request.

User friendly interface

The set of self-intuitive tools and settings make it possible for the operator to master the system control quickly and easily making thus his/her daily work more comfortable.

Availability 7 and 3 colors imaging

Operator is free to choose whether to use 3 colours imaging (organics/inorganics/metals), which is familiar by experience, or 7 colours imaging, which is more detailed one and which enables material discrimination on effective atomic number more precisely. New colours help the operator to stay attentive and his/her perception to remain not “overloaded” when working during a long period of time. This improves the performance quality of the operator and a through-flow rate of inspection points.

Real-time self-diagnostics

State of all important assemblies and components is controlled in the on-line mode allowing the system to be kept operational and the operator to be informed about any changes in good time

The design of the system provides radiation leakage attenuation limited to 1,0 µSv/hr (0,1 mR/hr) or lower at any accessible point at the distance of 0,1 m [ 3.9" ] from the external surface of the system. The dose rate intensity at the workstations of the personnel does not exceed 1,0 µSv/hr.

Maximum inspected item radiation dose during a single scan is 0,16 µSv, and is safe for the films with sensitivity up to ISO 1600 (33DIN).
