The UVIScan PRO Scanning Unit is specially designed for producing the highest possible quality under vehicle scan. In contrast to other systems, our UVIScan Area Scan technology is not affected by vehicle speed variations during the scanning process.
The vehicle may even, during the scanning process, stop on top of the scanner for several seconds, this will not lead to deformation (“stretching”) of the scan image. Our UVIScan PRO illumination is specially designed to scan both cars and trucks, in different heights and widths.
The stainless steel housing is very robust and has a tailor-made cover in special high impact resistant material. It is sealed and has heavy-duty industrial connectors. The scanner weighs only 21 kg (46 lb) and has a handle for easy carriage by hand. It can be installed in-ground and surface mounted, for more information click here.
Line Scan vs Area Scan
Line Scan records only lines (1 dimension)
Therefore it will provide a “Stretched” image (as shown) when vehicle stops on top of the scanner
The image will also deform substantially due to speed variations
Above effects have a negative influence on Automatic Comparison
Area scan records area frames (2 dimensions)
Therefore, Area Scan technology can compensate for speed variations
Even when vehicle stops on top of the scanner there is no deformation of the scan
Speed variations have no impact on Automatic Comparison
In contrast to most other systems, our UVIScan PRO technology offers you the most advanced Near InfraRed (NIR) illumination and camera technology.
Near InfraRed (NIR) technology offers the following advantages:
1) Avoid overexposure of the camera due to sunlight (as with white light technology)
2) Images have higher contrast and sharpness as with white light technology.
3) Not visible to the human eye, and can therefore not attract attention of criminals, terrorists and/or snipers.
Conclusion: Near InfraRed (NIR) technology is the best available technology for Under Vehicle Inspection systems
Colour vs Grey Scale
Colour Under Vehicle Image
- Need white light illumination for colour images;
- This will often lead to overexposure of the camera due to sunlight;
- White light is clearly visible to human eye and can attract snipers;
- During night time, the system will create a lot of (unwanted) light;
+ White light technology is less expensive than Infrared technology
GreyScale Under Vehicle Image
+ Can use superior infrared illumination technology
+ Can filter against sunlight, no potential problems with overexposure
+ Has higher contrast and sharpness
+ Illumination is not visible to human eye (f.i. snipers)
- Cannot distinguish any colours
We recommend InfraRed / GreyScale technology because of it's many advantages. Our standard UVIScan technology includes InfraRed / GreyScale technology.
If specifically requested, we can provide colour systems with white light illumination.
Comparable to the user interface for X-Ray systems, UVIScan PRO includes an “invert function” to facilitate the detection of contraband and unwanted objects, hidden under the vehicle.

The UVIScan PRO Processing Unit is an advanced, state-of-the-art technology industrial grade computer, which is tailor made for the UVIScan Under Vehicle Scanning technology.
Due to the low energy consumption with LINUX OS, we have chosen for passive cooling technology. Therefore, the system does not require a cooling fan and does not attract dust into the computer.
The Processing Unit has an aesthetical design industrial chassis in brushed aluminum and external cooling ribs.
Our UVIScan PRO with pre-installed LINUX OS offers many advantages versus other systems, which often freeze due to overload which typically happen with Windows based systems:
- Better stability than Windows
- No need for anti-virus
- No unwanted updates
- Low energy consumption
