Contraband detection tools should not only be effective and durable; they must be safe too. Safety should be of paramount importance especially for the task of detecting and seizing contraband from vehicles that are passing national borders and checkpoints day by day.
Sometimes, using a density meter is not enough – agents really need to see and confirm if a suspected vehicle (or any other object) is indeed carrying contraband inside. But they also want to keep the vehicle intact. There’s an answer to this dilemma – a visual inspection tool – an inspection videoscope.
It’s not just a visual inspection tool. It should be a tool that enables users to see what’s inside of the vehicle clearly, while allowing them to remain visually aware of their immediate surroundings. It should be durable for longer uses, and most of all, it should be safe no matter where it is used.
You’d think that such a perfect videoscope doesn’t exist. This type of videoscope does exist, and it even has the word “perfect” in its name: The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System from Campbell Harris Security Equipment Company (CSECO).
It is a one-piece visual inspection tool which offers clear images, flexibility, and safety while officers and border patrol agents attempt to detect vehicles or other objects that are suspected of carrying narcotics and other types of hidden contraband.
The most conspicuous part of the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is its large, five-inch multidirectional high-resolution color LCD display with push-button zoom that offers 10 times the resolution of the leading fiberscope. The great thing about looking at such a large screen while doing inspections is that it allows you to see into the suspect area without losing visibility of the surroundings, resulting in less eye fatigue which is often experienced while using a fiberscope. The shaft is long, thin, flexible, and is protected by a special fuel-safe coating.
You can save as many as 8,000 photos or six hours of video clips with the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope because it has a slot for an external storage (SD card).
The difference between a fiberscope and the Perfect Vision Videoscope is that the latter doesn’t have thousands of tiny glass fibers. Instead, it has the high-quality video chip in the tip construction that makes the Perfect Vision V20 videoscope durable and less prone to breakage. It also means less frequent and costly repairs.
We haven’t forgotten about the safety factor. Is your fiberscope or videoscope considered safe? The Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is the first videoscope to achieve the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) safety certification as being “Class I, Division 2 nonincendive equipment” and meeting “applicable UL standards and requirements.” The UL is the world leader when it comes to product safety, and this certification is a big boost to the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope’s reputation as a safe videoscope to use.
Although the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is not the only videoscope to be certified safe by the UL, it has otherwise set the industry standard because it was the first to achieve such safety certification.
The UL certification indicates that the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope is safe to use anywhere. Even if you insert it into a gas or fuel tank, there’s no problem with that – it won’t cause sparks or flames, nor cause malfunction to the videoscope itself or the vehicle.
Safety should always be the top priority particularly in occupations like intercepting drug trafficking and smuggling one’s life is on the line. For this reason, why settle for less than the safest inspection videoscope, the Perfect Vision V20 Videoscope Inspection System – the first inspection videoscope to be certified “safe” by the Underwriters Laboratory.
