is a pocket-sized, hand held device for the detection of a wide variety of explosives including, but not limited to, TNT, dynamite, ammonite (diesel), PETN,RDX, gunpowder,Semtex,C4,T.A.P,T.A.T.P.and all nitro based explosives.Sniffex®plus works on the basis of its ability to detect the presence of nitro (free) radicals within its effective range.

Sniffex plus is the first device of its kind that can detect explosives from distances of up to 100 meters, even when the explosive is hidden behind walls or metal barriers such as buildings or vehicles. Other products are only effective within a few centimeters of their target. Additionally, Sniffex plus appears to be just as effective at finding fired weapons as finding nitro based explosives.


SNIFFEX®PLUS - General Description - Technical data

The method of measurement is described in the United States Patent 6,344,818 and can be defined as detection of magnetic interference.

SNIFFEX®PLUS modulates a magnetic field with specific form in its surrounding. The interaction between the dynamic magnetic field modulated by SNIFFEX®PLUS, the vertical component of the earth magnetic field and the motion of the operator, holding the device, creates the necessary condition for the presence of a magnetic interference. If there is an object in the surrounding containing -NO2 or -NO3 compounds or hydrogen peroxide in its chemical structure, this interference can be measured with SNIFFEX®PLUS. The antenna reacts as a pointer to the object.

The training to operate with SNIFFEX®PLUS takes generally less than a day and fast results are achieved. In order to become a certified SNIFFEX®PLUS operator, special knowledge about detection methods and about the general approach for locating different explosives are requested.

It is also possible to adapt different detection methods for specific security needs of our customers to succeed in specific/ realistic threat scenarios. With SNIFFEX®PLUS explosives can even be located out of cars or helicopters to classify an area. SNIFFEX®PLUS is maintenance-free and can be used without any operational breaks 24/7.

Sniffex®plus uses a totally different approach. It detects the interference between the magnetic field of the earth, the explosive, the device itself, and the human body which allows the device to penetrate and locate even small amounts of explosives through concrete, soil, and metal barriers. Sniffex®plus detects all types of explosives on the basis of the presence of nitro radicals.

The interaction between the dynamic magnetic field modulated by SNIFFEX®PLUS, the vertical component of the earth magnetic field and the motion of the operator, holding the device, creates the necessary condition for the presence of a magnetic interference.
Unlike many “sniffer” devices that require the operator to be in close proximity to unstable explosives, Sniffex plus offers safe localization of an explosive or weapon from a distance. Sniffex plus does not contain any dangerous chemicals or hazardous material. This makes it both environmentally friendly and safe for the operator to use.
