X-Ray machines

spaceage security systems

These machines are used to inspect the contents of baggage and parcels without opening them. The X-ray machine have provision for zooming in as well as intensity adjustments so that it can penetrate up to various depths in the luggage. The efficiency and the success of such a machine depends to a large extends on the operator who views the result on a monitor. It requires a trained person to understand the images being displayed.

The present day X-ray machines are 'Film Safe' i.e. the films in the cameras are not adversely effected if the camera is passed through the X-ray machine. For 400 ASA or above this may not be valid.
