Simultaneous Explosives and Narcotics Trace Detector

  IONSCAN 500DT Brochure

The IONSCAN 500DT Explosive Trace Detector fills the growing need of security professionals to have the ability to detect a wide range of substances and to be able to adapt as threats and their needs change.

By incorporating two IMS detectors in a single unit, the IONSCAN 500DT is capable of detecting and identifying explosives and narcotics during a single analysis, while maintaining the high sensitivity you need.

Explosive Detection Equipment 

The IONSCAN 500DT includes a regenerative Air Purification System (APS), which reduces maintenance and cost of ownership and utilizes specially developed proprietary software. With the increased internal memory, more analysis results can be stored. These results can be printed with the built-in printer and exported via the USB port.
