The Buster K910G Density Meter is the latest update of the Buster K910B, the original product created by Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). The company’s founder and owner Patrick J. Campbell designed and developed the Buster K910B with input from a number of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents.

Since the Buster K910B emerged on the market and became popular, rival companies started to come up with their own density meters. However, not all density meters on the market today were created equal. Some of these gadgets employ different technologies like millimeter wave, ultraviolet wave, radio wave, or microwave into their own contraband detecting tools.

Contraband detecting gadgets that use such technology have limited scanning capabilities, and may detect only a few types of hidden contraband. The Buster K910G, on the other hand, can scan through different types of materials including metal, wood, reinforced plastic, carton, stone, brick and even organic material like soil and liquids. The Buster’s sophisticated technology has been proven for many years in detecting and locating several types of contraband such as narcotics, many types of drugs, alcohol, weapons and explosives.

The Buster’s superior capabilities will eliminate the need to tear down the material being scanned. Unlike rival density meters which do slow scanning, the Buster scans quite quickly — it can scan the whole average-sized vehicle within five minutes and an average-sized room within 10 minutes.

The Buster K910G density meter is relatively lightweight and is now easier to grip with its fully ergonomic design, a big improvement from the K910B. Other contraband detectors in the market are too heavy (some weigh as much as three pounds!). The Buster K910G is still as accurate as ever in picking up the correct level of density; once it detects an unusual amount of density, it is likely that contraband is hidden behind the surface being scanned. That very accuracy is something that rival density meters never have.

Competing density meters do not have the ability to reach less accessible areas like the underside of a vehicle. The Buster can scan these areas, thanks to the newest accessory Buster-on-a-Stick, and an extension stick which attaches to the Buster.

Other density meters may detect hidden contraband, but do they also detect dangerous radiation leaks? The Buster K910G has the RAD-Aware technology, which enables it to locate abnormal quantities of radiation. Once the Buster has positively located radiation, this will help the first responders to establish zones to keep other officers and other civilians to safety in the event of a dirty-bomb detonation.

Is your density meter even safe to use? Some contraband detecting tools may carry potentially harmful components like lead. The new Buster K910G is now lead-free, which means it is much safer to use for officers in their everyday inspections, as well as much safer for the environment! Tell us, how many contraband detectors and density meters are considered safe?

Not all density meters are created with the same functions. When you compare the Buster K910G and rival density meters, you can easily tell the difference because the Buster uses only the most advanced technology. Not to mention that the CBP agents, no less, were part of the creation of the first Buster. No wonder the CBP and other law enforcement agencies are using, trusting and recommending the Buster K910G Density Meter over competing contraband detectors.

Contraband detectors such as a density meter and a visual inspection tool will definitely help law enforcement agents locate and seize hidden contraband.

One of the most trusted names in the contraband detection field is Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) which has been in the business for over three decades. Their first product, the Buster K910B Density Meter, was a product of collaboration of the company’s founder Patrick J. Campbell and agents from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Also known as “Buster” for short, the Buster K910B has served well the majority of law enforcement and anti-illegal drugs agencies across the United States for many years. Now, CSECO has upgraded the K910B to the newest version, the Buster K910G Density Meter!

Like its predecessor, the Buster K910G still uses the low intensity gamma radiation and a scintillation detector. This helps the user to scan through a variety of materials: wood, paper or carton, metal, concrete, or reinforced plastic and even organic matter such as dirt, water, and many other kinds of liquids.

Law enforcement agents who use the Buster K910B will still be able to use the K910G for scanning through these kinds of matter without externally damaging or dismantling the items being scanned. Once the Buster recognizes a density level that is unusually high, it’s the right time for the agents to damage them in order to seize previously hidden contraband such as illegal drugs, narcotics, cash, alcohol and spirits, weapons, explosives, or other contraband.

The Buster’s low intensity gamma technology enables quick scanning. Like the K910B, the K910G has the ability to scan an entire average-sized room within 10 minutes or less, and a vehicle within 5 minutes or less.

The K910G also has the RAD-Aware® technology which enables first respondents to detect unusually high levels of radiation. This will help them to establish safety perimeters while keeping their colleagues as well as innocent civilians of the dangerous dirty bomb or any other radiation leaks.

The Buster K910G features significant improvements from the previous the K910B. The K910G has a more ergonomic design — it has been made slimmer (also designed for female inspectors or for those with smaller hands) and added with a strap to ensure of a more secure grip. The K910G also has a 7.5 micro curie Barium 133 source, which is at least 25% or more less than our competitors’ density meters. It is also now devoid of potentially-dangerous lead components inside it, making searches much safer than ever before.

The Buster will work best as it is meant to work that way — scanning mostly external surfaces, such as that of a gas tank. However, it doesn’t have the ability to probe into narrower spaces, nor can it be poked into other items such as a sack of grain. That’s why CSECO introduced another great contraband detection tool, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System. It is a visual inspection tool which can beat the leading fiberscopes currently on the market.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope can be used with complete ease, as it comes in one piece — no need for bothersome attachments such as cables. It works in the same manner as the other fiberscopes. But the Perfect Vision is very different due to its impressive features and functions.

The Perfect Vision V20 boasts a 5-inch color LCD display. It also has push-button dimming and digital zoom which enables the user to see the inspected area ten times to that of the leading fiberscope. This will help the user to focus on what is being inspected without losing visual awareness of his surroundings.

This amazing tool doesn’t have glass fibers, unlike the leading fiberscopes which means it is not easily susceptible to external damage. The Perfect Vision has a 2mmx6mm tungsten-protected shaft equipped with two-way articulation and potent LED lighting. The shaft can be poked or inserted into areas normally inaccessible to the Buster. The Buster recognizes any indication of concealed contraband while scanning a particular surface and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope will further confirm what it is beneath that surface. The Perfect Vision is also built to be used during the evening or in dark locations.

The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System is also certified safe by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL). Now agents will be confident when they have to use the Perfect Vision in high-risk areas like fuel tanks. Not many visual inspection tools can hold that kind of recognition like the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope does! It was the first visual inspection tool to hold such recognition.

Although already excellent individually, the Buster K910G Density Meter and the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, when used together, can double the chances of success of locating hidden contraband.

Smugglers often hide contraband in places where they think it would not be easily detected by agents. However, Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) manufactures the finest density meter and contraband detection equipment that many government agencies in the US use, recommend and trust. CSECO’s line of contraband detection tools has been praised for their performance in scanning and locating hidden contraband even in places that are previously thought to be inaccessible.

CSECO’s latest pride is the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which the many law enforcement agencies use to inspect different kinds of materials, vehicles and containers and confiscate countless amounts of contraband every year.

To begin with, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is a visual detector which comes in a one-piece unit, which means it doesn’t need any cumbersome attachments like cables. It enables many government agencies to do a fuss-free, convenient and effective search for hidden contraband.

It is not unusual for smugglers to try to conceal contraband such as narcotics, drugs and currency in spare tires or even inside a vehicle’s gas tank. They think that hiding them in these locations will diminish the chances of being easily scanned and detected.

But with the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope, it allows law enforcement agencies to view a full 360-degree while inside a door, a fuel tank, or behind a vehicle’s car seats. Like most leading fiberscopes on the market, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has similar features such as the 2m x 6mm thin shaft which is protected a tungsten coating. The shaft is so thin that it can be inserted into usually narrow and unreachable areas such gas tanks, spaces between walls, behind dashboards and vehicle doors. The Videoscope also has 2-way articulation and a high-intensity built-in LED lighting that allows for inspections even in the darkest areas.

Since it is a visual inspection tool, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope has the largest monitor among all the other leading fiberscopes and videoscopes in the market. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope boasts a 5-inch high-resolution color LCD display with a push-button dimming and digital zoom for better viewing of the areas being inspected by the tungsten-covered shaft.

This amazing tool enables officers to inspect a variety of materials without having the need to externally damage them. When the videoscope positively detects contraband, then it’s the time that the material should be torn apart in order to confiscate the suspicious item.

However, the most important feature of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope the safety. Underwriters Laboratory, the world’s leading authority on product safety, certified the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope as being safe for use even in the hazardous areas such fuel tanks. Until recently no other fiberscope or videoscope had this designation, a fact that law enforcement agents should be confident about and CSECO is quite proud of.

Several US government law enforcement agencies have been using the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope. Because of the many videoscopes used across the country, more illegal narcotics and other contraband are confiscated and kept off the streets.

Narcotics detection is no mean feat. Before CSECO released their density meter, the “Buster,” officers had to rely on their own senses in hopes of locating hidden contraband, and that could be risky. But thanks to the advanced technology and ingenious minds, there are tools available today that make the job less hazardous and provide results more accurately.

Many years ago police officers trusted trained dogs to sniff for possible hidden contraband such as narcotics and weapons. Even today, police officers and law enforcement agencies still use these K-9 units because they’re known to be reliable. These trained pooches are successful in detecting concealed contraband. Typically the contraband consists of narcotics but these dogs also help discover other items such as explosives, weapons, and currency. However, the disadvantage is that keeping K-9 units can be costly in terms of food, training and housing. Many police departments across the country do not have K-9 units, so what can they do to locate and seize contraband?

Agencies including the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) also use contraband detection tools such as the Buster K910B Density Meter from Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO). Officers can use the Buster along with the K-9 units, or in their absence.

The Buster is dubbed as the “gold standard” in density meters. It is safe to use, therefore officers won’t feel any trepidation or concern to use the Buster even in dangerous circumstances. It has been thoroughly tested since it was introduced back in 1984. Its low-intensity gamma radiation technology allows the Buster to scan through a variety of materials such as metal, wood, reinforced plastic, and others. Its speed also allows the officers to save time especially during border inspections and traffic stops where they need to scrutinize each vehicle they inspect and then move on to another.

The Buster is also portable and user-friendly. It reasonably small (you can grip it with only one hand), lightweight, but also compact. It features audible and visual readouts that are easy to understand.

Law enforcement agents may also need to use other contraband detection tools along with the Buster. One is the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System, one of the CSECO’s newest additions. This one-piece tool has some features and functions similar to the FV Series Fiberscope. However, the Perfect Vision has a large 5-inch color LCD display that allows more ease in visual inspections. This tool is also fuel-resistant and less susceptible to damage even when used heavily, unlike most fiberscopes on the market. And most importantly, it is certified safe by the Underwriters Laboratory (UL), which means that it is safe to use even in hazardous locations like fuel tanks. The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is the first videoscope in the world to be awarded this certification.

Narcotics detection remains a very important part of law enforcement and the officers are dedicated to keep the drugs off the streets. That’s why they need contraband detection equipment that they can trust. CSECO’s Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System and Buster K910B Density Meter make a formidable team for narcotics detection.

If you want a density meter considered to be the best to aid you in your contraband- and narcotics-busting efforts, then you want the Buster K910B Density Meter from Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO).

The Buster K910B aka Buster will quickly and effectively help you detect and locate hidden contraband items such as narcotics and other illegal drugs, cash, weapons, explosives, and even radioactive matter. It has been hailed the “gold standard” in density meters because it is considered to be the best on the market, unequaled by the density meters of its competitors.

The Buster has been widely used by interdiction and law enforcement units across the country, not to mention the Customs and Border Protection (CBP). It is little wonder the CBP likes the Buster, as CBP agents directly contributed in the creation of the Buster with CSECO’s founder Patrick J. Campbell. Campbell, who had many years of experience in creating and designing equipment that used radioactive elements, worked with the CBP agents to come up with the Buster.

The Buster became popular (and still is) among law enforcement agents because it employs sophisticated technology. It is also user-friendly; even those who are not well-versed in new technology will master the use of the Buster almost immediately.

The density meter beams a low-intensity gamma radiation and scintillation detector which helps it quickly scan any kind of material — wood, concrete, reinforced plastic, metal, or others — without damaging it. The Buster is able to detect discrepancies in density of the materials being scanned. It sends the user an alarm each time it reads an unusual and drastic changes in density, an indication that hidden contraband may be present. The alarms are both in the form of an audible signal and visual readouts.

Other companies have tried to make their own devices to be at par with the Buster, but the fact is their functions are quite limited. Such devices use other technology such as millimeter wave, ultraviolet wave, microwave, and radio wave but none of them are as quick and versatile as the Buster is. Interdiction officers who have used the Buster and other companies’ detection tools really feel the Buster’s use of radio isotopes in scanning materials is superior. This leads to a more accurate and productive results.

The very technology the Buster uses allows it to scan and provide results quicker compared to its competitors. Interdiction officers can scan an average-sized room in less than 10 minutes, while it can scan a vehicle in less than 5 minutes. Larger vehicles would require more time, but they would still be scanned accurately and quickly.

Apart from drugs, cash, weapons, and explosives, the density meter can also detect radioactive material, thanks to its feature called Rad-Aware® technology. It allows inspection officers (or first responders) to positively identify the presence of abnormal quantities of radioactive materials. This helps them establish safety zones and keep civilians out of harm’s way.

Campbell-Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO), maker of the Buster Density Meter, is fully aware of the difficulty and potential danger of the job of being interdiction officers. We know and understand that the job of tracking down and seizing hidden narcotics, drugs (illegal or legally prescribed) and other types of contraband is a tough and often delicate mission. So we have been constantly looking ways and using the latest technology to come up with tools that many law enforcement agencies can trust and use in their everyday duties.

Law enforcement agencies around the country, and in many parts of the world, need tools that use the latest technology. They also need tools that are user-friendly. They need tools that are also durable under any conditions, perform fast, can provide relevant and accurate results, are easy to handle and are safe as well. Fortunately in this day and age, officers can have access to these tools they can put their trust on. One such contraband detection tool is the world-renowned Buster K910B Density Meter from CSECO, which will help them to positively locate the presence of a hidden contraband.

CSECO’s president Tony Harris stated, “In the early 1980s, there wasn’t much technology to help the Border Patrol to determine if someone was smuggling something inside a vehicle.” He further went on to say that officers 30 years ago or so used whatever available for them: hands, rudimentary tools, and obviously, their hunch. These were the things that those officers could only rely on in trying to find the contraband in question — and detecting contraband successfully was more of by chance. However, most of the time, the hidden smuggled items went undetected.

That’s why one day the federal government approached Patrick J. Campbell, the founder of CSECO, to develop and design a new device to help them locate the presence of contraband — accurately and positively. Campbell agreed to come up with a new detection tool if only he could work with the end users — agents from the Customs and Border Protection. He worked closely with the CBP officers and eventually came up with CSECO’s first product — the Buster K910B. It used a back-scatter technology to aid users the presence of a hidden item.

With the advancement of technology, interdiction officers and agents don’t have to search for contraband with great difficulty as well as to second-guess where these items are concealed. The Buster uses the most advanced and sophisticated technology which enables users to scan and detect hidden contraband — quickly, effectively, and accurately!

The Buster gives off a low-intensity gamma radiation that is used to measure the density of an item that can be possibly hidden underneath. When the Buster finally reads a remarkable and unusual change in density, it gives off an audible alert or visual alarm. Since most items have different densities, these alerts will allow agents to notice remarkable changes in density very quickly, which could indicate the presence of a hidden contraband. This sophisticated technology of the Buster enables officers to scan on any type of material — be it wood, metal, reinforced plastic, rubber, concrete — without damaging it.

Officers in ports, borders and airports around the country have been seen using the Buster, like the US Customs and Border Protection agents. Their job is to determine whether or not narcotics, illegal drugs, stolen currency, jewelry and/or gold, hidden goods (foodstuffs, cigarettes, and liquor), weapons and explosives are hidden in vehicles, bags, containers, etc. It may not be important where these are; the most important for these officers is to know that they trust and use their tools which they use to positively and effectively alert them to the existence of hidden drugs, etc. and other smuggled items.

The Buster is also equipped with the newest technology, the RAD-Aware. This enables first responders to form a safety zone away for the civilians in case of a dirty-bomb detonation or any other radioactive leaks.

With its capabilities of detecting several and endless types of contraband, scanning on any type of material and detecting the presence of the dangerous radiation as well as safety, why would anyone would settle less than the Buster? The Buster K910B is not only one of the most trusted, but also one of the most recommended density meters by law enforcement officers in the US and around the world.

Many people aren’t aware what a contraband detection is all about. However, it is otherwise important and even has an impact on our well-being, safety and peace. Indeed, the general public isn’t aware of its importance nor do they realize that terrorism, whether on an international, national, or local level, may be funded through smuggled contraband. This also applies to other forms of crime.

An effective detection for contraband should include being able to detect drugs, cash, weapons, and explosives. It will prevent these items from being smuggled from one location to another. The more contraband is successfully detected, the less chance it will land in the hands of people that will use it to harm others. By removing contraband and keeping it out of circulation, people and communities will be made safer.

The general perception is that illegal goods (or contraband) are smuggled through the ports and borders and into the country. While this is true to some extent, many do not realize that contraband can actually be transported from state to state. Illegal drugs, weapons, explosives, dirty bombs, and other contraband material have the potential to ravage the lives of people and communities. Campbell/Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO) vowed to eradicate contraband material as their main priority. In order to meet its goal, CSECO manufactures a variety of contraband detection equipment and has since 1984.

So what is contraband? According to dictionaries, contraband is defined as follows:

  • Any item which is imported or exported illegally,
  • Any item which is prohibited by law from being imported or exported, or
  • Smuggling, or illegal/prohibited trade

Contraband may also mean items which are illegal to be possessed, including stolen goods. Since contraband is illegally transported by smuggling, it requires secrecy by hiding the items so that they cannot be easily recognized and confiscated by authorities.

However, by using contraband detection tools like those manufactured by CSECO, border patrol agents and other local, state, and national law enforcement officers can detect contraband quickly and take it off the streets.

Contraband may include (but is not limited to):

  • Illegal currency (stolen, counterfeit, or gained through illegal means)
  • Illegal narcotics (cocaine, meth, heroine, etc.)
  • Illegal weapons that may stolen or purchased from the black market
  • Nuclear weapons of any type
  • Cigarettes and alcohol, when obtained illegally
  • Even humans are considered contraband, especially when they are here illegally, or may have been kidnapped and forced to work in the sex trade.

Now that you know what contraband is, you can better understand why it is important to detect and confiscate it.

That’s why CSECO works hard to help law enforcement agents to detect and seize contraband. It can be removed as a potential threat and kept out of communities which help keep them safe. The company uses the latest in technology when developing and manufacturing equipment for contraband detection. Here are some of CSECO’s products:

  • The Buster K910B Density Meter – CSECO’s signature contraband detection equipment. It was designed by founder Patrick J. Campbell as a result of his collaboration with US Customs and Patrol agents. When approached, Campbell said he wanted to work closely with the agents who would use and be able to explain real-world instances where improvements could be made over the contraband detectors that then existed at that time. Over 30 years later, the Buster is now considered the “gold standard” of contraband detectors by many law enforcement agents across the country.
  • Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope – CSECO’s most recent addition to its line of contraband detecting tools easily beats the fiberscopes sold on the market today. It uses a shaft that is ¼ inch in diameter and 80 inches long. It also has a two-way articulated tip that includes an integral light source. The display is 5-inches and multi-directional color LCD. It has push button digital zoom. The Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope also saves still photos, but also records video images of the areas being detected. It’s also flexible and fuel-resistant. And best of all, the Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope is certified safe the by Underwriters’ Laboratory (UL) for use in hazardous areas like fuel tanks.
  • The CT-40 Kit – CSECO has unveiled the CT-40 Detection Team Kit, an update from its previous CT-30 Kit. Like the CT-30, the CT-40 has pretty much the same set of tools, but does not include the FV Series Articulated Fiberscope and the digital camera. Instead, what you will see in the CT-40 is the newest addition: the Perfect Vision® V20 Videoscope Inspection System, which works far, far better than the old fiberscope.

As you may have realized from reading this article, CSECO and its many customers (the Customs and Border Patrol, Department of Homeland Security, US State Department, DEA, as well as all levels of law enforcement) take a serious and hard stance against contraband smuggling.
