Try These Little-Known CSECO Contraband Detection Tools

If you’re familiar with Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO), the first thing that comes to mind is their Buster density meter, among other contraband detection tools. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope System has also risen in popularity since it was first introduced.

The Buster density meter is CSECO’s first device, designed and developed by Patrick J. Campbell with significant input from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents. Because of its technology – the low-intensity gamma rays and scintillation detector – the Buster has been crucial to thousands of seizures of narcotics and other contraband which are worth over a billion dollars. Even though rivals have attempted to duplicate the Buster, nothing can come close to its ability (not to mention its success) in detecting and locating hidden contraband, even in high-risk areas. That’s why the Buster remains as the “gold standard” of contraband detection.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is a better alternative to the leading commercial fiberscopes. Owing to its unique design and technology – a 5-inch color LCD monitor (instead of an eyepiece), fuel-safe articulating shaft, and a UL safety certification, among other features – the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has enabled easier, quicker, more accurate and safer visual inspections.

But what about CSECO’s other tools? They may have received little attention, but they have also proven to be useful, even indispensable.

Let’s look at the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit. If you have read other articles about CSECO, the CT-40 kit is the upgrade of the previous CT-30 kit. The CT-40 kit includes the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, while the CT-30 includes the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope. That’s the only discernible difference between the CT-40 kit and the CT-30 kit; otherwise, both have the same contents, including the little known but important tools.

The following lists the little-known contraband detection tools from CSECO that are also included in the CT-40 kit:

  • PN-Series Inspection Probe Kit – a kit which consists of stainless steel probes with grooves at the tip. They are inserted into certain items (like couches or sacks) for retaining or extracting any samples. These probes come in different sizes.
  • Leica Laser Range Meter – it is used to detect false walls as well as hidden compartments, truck beds, cargo containers, trailers, and other spaces with known dimensions.
  • PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High Intensity Flashlight – this tool allows users to see in dark and difficult places such as beneath a car or a truck.
  • CT-40 Customer Carrying Case with Wheels – a sturdy and shock-resistant case which houses the Buster density meter, the Perfect Vision V20, and the other tools mentioned on this list.

CSECO also offers another excellent kit, the CT-PTK Personal Tool Kit, which includes the P-41-PT and P-40-PT stainless steel inspection probes, the MPTS Multi-Purpose Handheld Utility Tool (bolts and screws, files, small scissors, a saw, a knife and pliers), and a flashlight. These tools are stored in a military-nylon custom carrying case when not in use.

Although CSECO’s other tools are not frequently mentioned, they are as essential as the Buster or the Perfect Vision V20 videoscope. CSECO’s little known contraband detection tools increase the chance of more efficient and productive inspections for concealed smuggled items such as narcotics.

Updating the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit

The CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit from Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) has everything you need for efficient and results-oriented anti-contraband operations. If you have not used the kit yet and are not familiar with it, here’s what it contains:

  • Buster K910G density meter (it used to be the Buster K910B density meter)
  • FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope
  • PN-Series Inspection Probe Kit
  • Leica Laser Range Meter
  • PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High Intensity Flashlight
  • CT-30 Customer Carrying Case with Wheels

However, CSECO still aimed to improve the kit by upgrading it to CT-40 Contraband Team Inspection Kit. Basically, it is just like the CT-30 kit but only with the addition of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which replaces the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope.

Even though we know that you have loved the old fiberscope, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System promises to perform even better than the former.

Fiberscopes typically feature a small eyepiece which you can look into while inserting the flexible optical fiber bundle into an item or area suspected of carrying contraband. But in the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, there’s no eyepiece, but instead it features a large, multi-directional, high-resolution color LCD monitor which also includes a push-button dimming and digital zoom feature. No need to squint into anything because the large display of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope allows you to have a clearer look into the area without losing visibility to your surroundings. The display produces clearer images without causing you eye fatigue.

The videoscope’s long, thin and flexible articulating shaft is protected by a fuel-resistant coating. It ends with a powerful LED light source which is ideal for inspecting in darker areas, or during nighttime inspections. The difference between the Perfect Vision V20 videoscope and the fiberscope is that the former uses a high-quality chip video technology in the tip construction instead of the typical glass fibers that the fiberscope has. This makes the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope more durable, and less likely to suffer damage that leads to less frequent and costly repairs. Fiberscopes have glass fibers which tend to break easily, especially when used often.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System is the first visual inspection tool to have met the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) safety requirements and thus is certified safe to use in hazardous environments.

The Buster density meter, as we all know, is the “gold standard” of contraband detection. The Buster K910B has been upgraded to the new Buster K910G, which uses the same technology – the low intensity gamma radiation emitter and back scatter scintillation detector for quick and accurate scanning. But compared to the K910B, the K910G has no lead-based components and its radioactive source is now 25% less than most density meters on the market – making the Buster safe for humans and the environment!

The Buster K910G is a user-friendly tool – just hold it against the object you are about to inspect and start scanning it. Turn the Buster on by squeezing its trigger. When you wave or sweep the Buster across the object you’re scanning, it will make a beeping sound if the Buster detects a noticeable change in the object’s density. In the Buster’s LCD display, you can also see the change in the object’s density in numbers. Once the Buster positively detects the contraband hidden inside that object, it will sound off an alarm that alerts the user to the contraband.

Also included in the CT-40 kit: the 5-piece PN-Series Inspection Probe Kit, the Leica Laser Range Meter®, the PM-10 Extension Inspection Mirror with High Intensity Flashlight, and the CT-40 Customer Carrying Case with Wheels. Note: The Buster-On-A-Stick Extension Pole is NOT included in the kit.

Law Enforcement Product News Announces CT-30 Kit Uprade

Law Enforcement Product News’ July/August issue features a write-up about the upgrade of the CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit to the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit. 

Law Enforcement Product News is a 32-page digital magazine which is an affiliate of Officer.com. It features articles about the tools and equipment that law enforcement agents use on a regular basis, as well as other related information that officers will find useful. 

Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) released the CT-40 Contraband Team Detection Kit in February 2014 as an upgrade to the previous CT-30 Contraband Team Detection Kit which had been in use by most of law enforcement and governmental agents across the United States. Among equipment included in the CT-30 kit are the Buster K910B density meter, the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope, and the PN-Series Inspection Probe Kit.

The CT-40 kit contains most of the same equipment as in the CT-30, only it replaces the Buster K910B and with the updated version of the Buster, the Buster K910G; and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System which replaces the FV-Series Articulated Fiberscope. 

CSECO takes heed of the law enforcement agents’ needs carefully and puts what they hear into practice. When the company heard that officers would like a visual inspection tool that was more user-friendly and safe, the CSECO team immediately went to work. The collaboration resulted to the Perfect Vison V20 Videoscope Inspection System. It features the latest technology and is the first videoscope to be certified “safe” by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) for use in hazardous areas such as gasoline fuel systems and tanks.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has some of the features of the FV Series Fiberscope – such as the thin and flexible articulating shaft with a fuel-resistant tungsten coating, the powerful LED lighting built into the shaft, and long-lasting rechargeable batteries to ensure continuous inspections. But the difference is that the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has a 5-inch, multi-directional color LCD screen which enables for one-unit operation – no need for bothersome attachments that officers would use with a fiberscope.

The large display also allows the officer to see images clearly without losing visual awareness of his surroundings. Another concern that the officers felt towards the FV-Series Fiberscope was that they tended to lose visibility to their immediate surroundings because they had to keep their head down squinting through the fiberscope’s eyepiece during the inspection – something which, the officers felt, was a safety concern. The Perfect Vision V20 videoscope’s large LCD display enables the officers to keep their heads up so that they can be aware of what’s happening around them. 

The Perfect Vision V20 videoscope’s LCD display also features the push-button dimming and digital zoom that provides 10 times higher than the resolution of the leading fiberscopes – which means that the videoscope offers clearer views and more vivid colors. These factors result in images that provide more detail which allows the officers to confirm the presence of contraband during the inspection on-the-spot, rather than having to for wait the inspection to be over and then review it on the videotape. It also has digital photo and video capability which means no need for camera attachments.

The most important feature that Perfect Vision V20 videoscope provides is that it guarantees safety. It is now certified “safe” by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), the world leader in product safety, which attests that the equipment has met the UL safety requirements.  

The safety feature in the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is CSECO’s response in addressing the officer’s safety issues. CSECO president Tony Harris indicated that CSECO worked closely with the UL to make sure that the equipment is safe to use even in high-risk areas such as fuel tanks. He further added: “We want our users to feel confident they can use the videoscope as they always have their fiberscopes.” At the time of the original publication, no other visual inspection tool had received such safety certification other than the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, and CSECO is undoubtedly proud of this achievement.

Damaune Journey, CSECO’s Director of Global Business Development, had something to say about the newest update on the CT-30 kit, “The CT-40 will provide everything officers have come to love about the CT-30, and then some. If you found the fiberscope useful just wait until you use the Perfect Vision Videoscope.”

The Buster K910G, on the other hand, is the latest iteration of the Buster K910B. The Buster K910G still retains the features of the K910B, including the low-intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector to quickly scan vehicles or areas suspected of carrying contraband. The Buster K910G, like the old version, is designed in a way that it enables the user to determine whether a contraband is hidden in a standard vehicle within five minutes, or an average-sized room within 10 minutes. 

Just like the K910B, the K910G still can detect contraband hidden in various kinds of materials such as wood, metal, reinforced plastic, and even dirt. This scanning capability will never be achieved by other contraband detectors using radio wave, microwave, millimeter wave and ultraviolet wave. You can also count on the Buster K910G as it can detect and locate many kinds of hidden contraband: narcotics, illegal drugs, currency, weapons and explosives.

The Buster K910G still has the RAD-Aware radiation detection technology that enables first responders to establish safety borders to protect himself and other people from the imminent dangers of radiation leaks such as from dirty bombs.

What has changed in the K910G is that it is now made even safer. All lead-based components have now been removed, and the radioactive source is 25% less than that of any other density meters. It proves that the Buster is now the safest density meter ever on the market! 

If you loved the CT-30 Contraband Detection Team Kit, you will love the CT-40 Contraband Detection Team Kit even more with the addition of the updated Buster K910G and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope!

CSECO Contraband Detectors for Successful Contraband Detection

Searching for, inspecting, detecting, and seizing narcotics and contraband are the tasks of law enforcement agents assigned to combat illegal drugs and smuggling. That’s why need they need reliable tools to carry out their job. Thankfully, there’s Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) to rely on.

CSECO has been the leading name in the contraband detection equipment in the United States since the 1980s. Its maiden product, the Buster K910B Density Meter, was the product by company founder Patrick J. Campbell, with substantial input from a group of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

Since its launch, the Buster K910B had been made as an essential item for every law enforcement body — for CBP agents that check vehicles that pass the border, for the police, and for security agents that patrol the airports, ship ports, and other public areas. Because of its accuracy and dependability, the Buster had been hailed as the “gold standard” in contraband detection.

Despite receiving such accolades, CSECO knew they could make the Buster better. The result is the Buster K910G, the updated version of the much-beloved Buster K910B.

Like its predecessor, the Buster K910G emits a low-intensity gamma radiation and uses a scintillation detector. This technology enables the users to scan suspected items of various materials (like wood, rubber, reinforced plastic, concrete, metal, and dirt) as well as detect several kinds of hidden contraband (narcotics, drugs, money, weapons, explosives, and jewelry).

This very technology that the Buster uses also facilitates inspections — it is fast but at the same time accurate. It can complete an inspection on an average vehicle within 5 minutes and an average-sized room can be scanned within 10 minutes. The Buster also picks up four readings per second and uses the “backscatter radiation” technology, where the low-intensity gamma beams “bounce off” of the suspected items and reflect back to the device. The higher the density that the Buster detects from the suspected object, the higher level of gamma rays that will beam back to the device.

And not only that, the Buster K910G includes RAD-Aware technology which can detect abnormal quantities of radioactivity. It enables first responders to set up safety areas to bring other inspectors as well as civilians far from the dangerous effects of radioactivity as possible.

The Buster K910G is also the first density meter with no lead-based components! It also has a 7.5 micro curie source, which is at least 25% smaller than the competing density meters. This makes inspections safer than ever.

To really help confirm what the Buster has detected, use the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System. While it works like a fiberscope in many ways, the Perfect Vision’s superior features will outdo even the world’s leading fiberscope. Its most prominent feature is its 5-inch multi-directional high resolution color LCD monitor which is equipped with a push-button dimming and digital zoom which provides 10 times the resolution compared to that of a fiberscope. With its large display, officers won’t need to squint in an eyepiece which could make them lose visibility on their immediate surroundings. Not having to look in the eyepiece also reduces eye fatigue.

Its 2mx6mm shaft is protected with a tungsten coating, and has a two-way articulation and a potent LED lighting. The shaft can be poked or inserted into inaccessible areas for the Buster to reach.

Since the Videoscope is a one-piece tool, there’s no need for some cumbersome attachments like cables and wires. It also has an SD card slot for external storage which can save up to 8,000 photos or six hours of video evidence. Without the use of tiny glass fibers that are present in fiberscopes, the Perfect Vision is less prone to breakage and thus minimizes the need for costly repairs.

Many manufacturers claim that their fiberscope or videoscope is safe, but CSECO’s Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is the first visual inspection tool which is certified safe by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), the trusted and leading name in product safety. This makes the Perfect Vision absolutely safe to use in high-risk areas, including fuel tanks.

Whether they’re used alone or together, both the Buster K910G Density Meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System from CSECO prove to be efficient, accurate, durable, and absolutely safe to use. These tools in your arsenal are guaranteed to bring successful contraband detection.

Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope: Contraband Detection Made Easier

The Buster K910B Density Meter is the flagship product of Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO), but the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is here. It is the first product of its kind to help interdiction officers who track down smuggling and drug trafficking. However, CSECO continues to strive in bringing other contraband detection tools that are as competent and effective as the Buster, but having its own unique functions and capabilities.

One of them is the company’s newest product, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which stands out among other existing fiberscopes on the market today. It is the latest technology in visual inspections. While it has some similar traits when compared with other leading fiberscopes, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope features other amazing functions that surpass the fiberscopes that law enforcement agencies have used for a long time.

The first thing you’ll love about the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is that it comes in one piece. You don’t need to attach bothersome cables or cameras that have the potential to hamper your inspection.

Like most fiberscopes, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has a long, thin and flexible shaft, which is protected by a tungsten coating. It also has two-way articulation, powerful LED lighting, and long-lasting rechargeable batteries.

However, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has something that fiberscopes don’t: its 5-inch, high-resolution color LCD display. This display enables interdiction officers to conduct a better inspection into the more inaccessible areas of a vehicle such as the gas tank, without losing visibility on their surroundings. The 5-inch display also reduces the tiredness agents experience in their eyes. The LCD display also features a push-button exposure option for lighting and dimming, as well as a 3.5 digital zoom. These features produce a resolution that is ten times higher than that of most fiberscopes.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope also takes still images as well as video, and has a slot for an SD card that allows storage of up to 8,000 photos or 6 hours of videos. You don’t need to attach a video camera for that, it’s included within the LCD display.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is also durable. Unlike other fiberscopes, it is less susceptible to physical damage – this is a huge benefit to users. Since the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has no tiny fiber optics which are easily breakable, there is less need for costly repairs which typically occurs among fiberscopes.

Interdiction agents should also feel no fear in using the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, because it’s certified safe by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the global independent company that tests the safety of the new technologies. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope can be used safely in more dangerous areas because it is resistant to water, gasoline, and oil.

CSECO’s Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System is the newest tool that Customs and Border Protection agents and other law enforcement agencies find an indispensable part of their fight against drug trafficking and smuggling. With the clear images that it provides and its user-friendliness, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope will prove to be an efficient and competent companion for law enforcement agencies who need the best tools for their every day job of tracking narcotics and other contraband.
