M-ION EXPLOSIVE VAPOR AND TRACE DETECTOR
M-ION can detect and identify a wide variety of explosives including pure explosives and composite explosives under different humidity
and pressure conditions in vapour and trace (particles mode).
The list of explosives includes TNT, RDX, C4, Semtex, PETN, ANFO, EGDN, Nitroglycerine (NG), Dynamite, DNT, Black Powder , Ammonia
and Urea nitrates, HMTD, Tetryl and mixtures thereof.
The cost of ownership of M-ION is very low, as special consumables are not required. Regular aluminium foil napkins are used for surface
M-ION runs on the Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometry principle. M-ION contains no radiation sources. Corona discharge functions
as the source of ionization.
M-ION features user authorization function with the internal memory allows to save more
than 100K results of analisys.
M-ION does not require a special calibration.
M-ION is equipped with a special electrostatic valve filtering ions by their polarity, which significantly reduces false alarm rate from non-explosive materials.
M-ION warms up in less than 1 minute.
M-ION is easy to use and doesn’t require any special training.
Presence of an explosive in the sample is visualized on the LCD display of the device or any Wi-Fi device usable as a remote control.
