Victoria International Airport—Hold BAggage Screening Recapitalization
Projects / Institutional
The Hold Bag Screening (HBS) Recapitalization project at the Victoria International Airport consisted of modifying the existing HBS system to improve passenger safety. The changes brought the security screening up to international standards and included improved explosive detection devices and computer tomography.
Our team provided electrical construction and control cabling for all four-way sorters, spiral power curves, and bag alignment devices VFDs. We installed photo eyes on cable trays mounted above the conveyor systems and terminated them back to five different control panels. All units were linked together via Ethernet IP so the client can remotely monitor from a control room what each drive unit is doing at all times.
