EOD401 SABRE™ HANDHELD TRACE DETECTOR FOR EXPLOSIVES, CHEMICAL AGENTS AND TOXIC INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS OR NARCOTICS
• Smallest, lightest tri-mode (Explosives, Narcotics, CWA/TICs) detector available
• Optimized detection of peroxides (used in home-made explosive devices and Improvised Explosives Devices) in vapor mode
• Continuous automatic vapor sampling in both positive and negative modes for CWA/TIC detection
• Self-diagnostics with maintenance alerts and onboard troubleshooting
• Faster clear down with truncated alarm
The SABRE 5000 is the smallest, lightest tri-mode handheld system available for detecting trace amounts of explosives, chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals or narcotics. With its ability to detect a wide range of threats, it is a cost effective instrument for security professionals and military agencies that require portability and flexibility to perform their duties.
Using Smiths Detection’s proven Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) technology the SABRE 5000 is programmed to detect and identify over 40 threat substances in approximately 20 seconds. Threats such as common peroxide-based, volatile and unstable chemicals often used to construct Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), and ammonium nitrate commonly used in home‑made explosives.
Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) Technology
Particle and Vapor Trace Detection
The versatile SABRE 5000 is capable of analyzing either trace particle or vapor samples, expanding the range of threats the system can detect. The operator can select the best analysis method for the suspected threat to yield the most accurate analysis results. Switching between sampling modes takes only seconds.
Auto-Switching Vapor (ASV) Modes
The ASV-Explosives mode offers an optimized detection in both negative and positive mode for an increased range of explosives detection from single sample. To detect CWA/TIC substances, the ASV-CWA/TIC mode offers Emergency Responders flexibility to continuously sample vapor without the need for switching between positive and negative modes. When the system is used in a fixed location the display screen can easily be rotated 180° for easy viewing.
The SABRE 5000 monitors its environment, senses changes that would affect its accuracy and re-calibrates accordingly. There are no calibration consumables or related maintenance procedures for calibration, saving time and money.
The SABRE 5000 features onboard diagnostics to assist the operator with maintenance procedures and simple system troubleshooting for error resolution.
The USB port allows for convenient downloading of alarm data for further detailed analysis, programming the instrument or printing alarm results with the included Instrument Manager Software.
