Model: CryonCorp EnhanceScan General-Purpose Scanner
Type: Portable scanning device
Skill: Sensors
Weight: 8 kg
Cost: 2,000
Availability: 2
Game Notes: Able to scan to a range of 1,500 meters (though more than 1 meter of rock or metal blocks it). It can detect movement, find life forms and monitor comlink signals. Scanning for life forms or comm signals requires a Difficult sensors roll. Device gives a +1D bonus to search rolls.

Description: A CryonCorp product, the EnhanceScan general-purpose scanner was used by Rebel Alliance forces on Hoth during their initial sweep to look for life forms. Its sensors included a motion sensor, comm scanner, metal scanner, and life-form scanners, and the unit was small enough to be carried around the neck. The EnhanceScan could detect life forms 1,500 meters away, the comm scanner had an effective range of three kilometers, the motion sensor had a 500 meter range, but the metal scanner only had a maximum range of one hundred meters. The computer built into the scanner controlled all four sensors and displayed the data on a readout screen.

Components of the EnhanceScan general-purpose scanner included an antenna, motion sensor, metal scanner, comm scanner, power cells, data port, power indicator, and life-form scanner.

8 kilograms seems heavy. A 10cm diameter by 20 cm tall cylinder of concrete is about 4 kilograms (I work with construction materials testing, so a cylinder of concrete has become my metric for density for comparison to objects of a roughly known size and unknown weight/mass). If I remember the scene where Han holds one of these looking for Luke, its smaller than an human torso. Therefore, 8 kilograms places the scanner at about the same density as concrete. I would put it at between 4 and 6 kilograms.

I do appreciate your completionist dedication. Saves me the time and effort.

The 8kg came straight from Wookieepedia, and I bow before their research.
That said, they've been wrong before, and there's nothing to say that number won't be completely different in 6 months time :)

Figured you had a source (and wookiepedia was likely it). Until i decided on my baseline, I had a hard time determining realistic/plausible masses of objects. It is unsurprising that another source (especially if it is unfamiliar with metric units) might assign what appear to be arbitrary values. Keep doing what you're doing.
