Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A security system for preventing unauthorised removal of a portable electronic device, such as a portable X-ray detector (106) or the like, from a docking station (100). The docking station (100) is provided with an electromagnetic lock (102) which is activated by means of a software command (112) issued by a screensaver function (110) running on a remote host PC (108). When triggered after some predetermined period of user inactivity, the screensaver function (110) locks the screen and keyboard of the host PC (108) to prevent unauthorised use thereof, and also issues the above-mentioned software command (112) to activate the electromagnetic lock (102) and prevent removal of the detector (106) from the docking station (100).
