Kassel, Germany – March 6, 2018 – The current series of mail bombs in the UK 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 letters and small packages. Leveraging terahertz waves, T-SENSE penetrates paper, clothing, plastic and many other materials in just seconds, similar to airport screening machines. "Every post office or mail room in the world represents a gateway for dangerous attacks and must be closely protected,” said Thorsten Sprenger, Head of Terahertz-Technology & Photonics at HÜBNER."T-SENSE effectively detects potential hazards while also reducing costly false alarms. It is also for safe for security employees, with no harmful radiation emitted during operation, unlike traditional security solutions, such as x-rays.”

The new second generation T-SENSE is developed by HÜBNER, a German-based company with an affiliate in the UK. HÜBNER debuted T-SENSE devices for postal scanning in 2016. The new T-SENSE can scan approx. 1.000 letters and small packages per hour 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.
