The recent series of mail bombs sent to President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and others have put a spotlight on the security of mailing and delivery services. HUBNER, a global supplier of comprehensive systems for the transportation, life sciences and scientific research industries, today announced the availability of T-SENSE, an all-in one sensor solution designed to improve the security and safety of postal facilities around the world.
Using high-frequency technology, T-SENSE detects concealed objects, powders and hazardous substances in packages. Leveraging terahertz waves, T-SENSE penetrates paper, clothing, plastic and many other materials in just seconds, similar to airport screening machines.
The new second generation T-SENSE is developed by HUBNER, a German-based company with US locations in San Jose, Calif. and Mount Pleasant, S.C. HUBNER debuted T-SENSE devices for postal scanning in 2016.
The new T-SENSE can scan letters and packages up to a thickness of 5 centimeters. The turnkey system includes a plug-and-play setup and intuitive user interface. The compact, stand-alone device includes an integrated computer with corresponding software as well as a touch-screen monitor, mouse and keyboard. All that is required to start working is a normal power connection.
