Smiths Detection has launched its next generation, fully automated tray return system, the iLane A20. The new model delivers high throughput and efficiency, enabling a more seamless security process and enhanced passenger experience at the checkpoint.
This intelligent lane has been developed in cooperation with Interroll, a provider of material handling solutions. As well as being automated, it provides parallel divest – allowing multiple people to prepare for security screening at the same time – as well as empty tray verification and the diversion of suspicious baggage. The iLane A20 is modular, offering customisable configurations to suit bespoke throughput levels, aesthetic requirements, and space restrictions. It also enables cost reductions by removing the need to replace the whole lane for upgrades and providing health monitoring for system performance management.
In line with the development of open architecture approaches and solutions, the iLane A20 can also utilise Smiths Detection’s Universal Checkpoint Interface to support the implementation of third-party X-ray systems, improving airports’ agility for meeting new operational requirements.
