Which Contraband Detection Tools Get Results?

When it comes to contraband detection tools, you can always rely on Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). It is the home of the world-renowned Buster density meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System. Most law enforcement agencies, including the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), use CSECO’s products because they have seen them bringing excellent results from using them. But other than that, why should you choose CSECO’s tools for your job of eradicating drugs and smuggling?

The Buster density meter is CSECO’s first contraband detection tool to be launched, and also the first density meter for the purposes detecting hidden contraband. The first and original version is the Buster K910B, developed and designed by CSECO’s founder Patrick J. Campbell, with significant input from the CBP agents during the 1980s. Now, how many contraband detection tools that you can think of, which have been developed and designed with contributions directly from the largest federal law enforcement agency in the country?

Since then, the Buster has been used, trusted and recommended not only by the CBP but by other federal, state and national law enforcement agencies across the US. No other density meter could bring excellent results like the Buster does, as it helps in curbing the flow of narcotics, illegal drugs and smuggling. The Buster K910B has also been used in intercepting the flow of contraband at major checkpoints, airports, seaports, and terminals.

The success of the Buster lies with its state-of-the-art technology. It emits a low-intensity gamma radiation and a scintillation detector. The Buster can scan a wide range of objects made from different materials, be them metal, wood, reinforced plastic, concrete and organic matter like dirt and liquid. Inspectors can use the Buster in examining suspected items and areas such as vehicles (and its parts from the seating to dashboards to gas tanks, etc.), walls, ceilings and floors, furniture, container vans, and even over the soil. The Buster has tremendously helped in detecting and seizing a wide variety of contraband that includes narcotics, drugs (illegal or prescribed), cash, alcohol, jewelry, weapons, and explosives.

The Buster’s technology enables it to pick up four readings per second, allowing it to perform quick once-overs while maintaining accurate density readings. The low-intensity gamma rays penetrate into the materials being examined as deep as six inches. These rays reflect back to the Buster, which in turn goes to establish the density readings — this method is called “backscatter technology.” The moment the Buster detects a possible contraband hidden behind the suspected item, it alerts the user by sending both audible and visual alarms.

Apart from contraband, the Buster can also locate dangerous levels of radioactive material, thanks to its feature the RAD-Aware technology. When the Buster detects a dirty bomb or any other radioactive leaks, it alerts the user (the first responder) to move other inspectors and civilians out to safer areas and indicate where the safe zone is.

The Buster has helped in seizing billions of dollars worth of narcotics and any other type of contraband. It might be your all-in-one contraband detection tool, but the chances of success at locating more contraband will be enhanced by using CSECO’s other tools, notably the Perfect Vision V20 Videsocope Inspection System. It comes in one piece, which means it doesn’t need bothersome cables and other attachments — just use it as it is!

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has a 5-inch, multi-directional high-resolution color LCD display, which is big enough for the user to see the contents of a suspected item or area as he is inspecting it, without losing visibility of his immediate surroundings. Fiberscopes have an eyepiece which the user squints into, causing eye strain.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope features a thin shaft with a protective tungsten coating, which the user can insert into holes, crevices, and other smaller compartments which are suspected of hiding contraband. Since it doesn’t have fiber optic cables that most fiberscopes have, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope doesn’t easily break, thus saving you money and time from taking it for repairs.

The large LCD monitor also features a push-button dimming and image resolution which is 10 times that of a leading fiberscope. It also features a slot for external storage which can save up to 8,000 photographs or six hours of video evidence.

But the strongest reason why you should get the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is its certification of safety from the Underwriters Laboratory, the leading name in product safety. This rating means that it can be used in risky and hazardous areas such as gas tanks — without disrupting, damaging the item being scanned, or causing harm to the user. Now, can you think of other visual inspection tools that have such certification?

You can always rely on CSECO for its durable, accurate, and reliable contraband detection tools which have kept their promise in bringing excellent results.
