Does the Sensor require any special handling at the airport?

You may use your System while on an aircraft, following any requests from the flight crew:1

• Some airport full-body scanners include x-ray or millimetre radio-wave, which you cannot expose your Sensor to. The effect of these scanners has not been evaluated and the exposure may damage the Sensor or cause inaccurate results.

To avoid removing your Sensor, you may request another type of screening. If you do choose to go through a full-body scanner, you must remove your Sensor.

• The Sensor can be exposed to common electrostatic (ESD) and electromagnetic interference (EMI), including airport metal detectors. You can keep your Reader on while going through these.
