The SE230 Contraband Detector has a radioactive source that is 25% smaller than any other density meter and contains no lead components, making it the safest and most environmentally friendly model on the market, supported by a two-year free warranty.
The unit uses a low intensity gamma radiation emitter and scintillation detector to quickly scan vehicles or residences for hidden contraband. This Contraband Detector is designed to allow an inspector to determine in less than 5 minutes whether a suspect vehicle tests positive for contraband and to conduct a similar scan on the average room in less than 10 minutes.
Unlike millimetre wave, radio wave, ultra-violet or microwave technologies the Contraband Detector can identify concealed items through material, wood, metal, or reinforced plastics without causing damage to the items being inspected. The unit is known for its durability, reliability and dependability. Currently, the Contraband Detector equipment is used by the US State Department, the Department of Homeland Security, federal, state and local law enforcement along with the US Customs and Border Protection agencies as well as other law enforcement bodies internationally.
The Contraband Detector can use both visual and audible readouts to alert users to the presence of contraband and can quickly zero in on the specific location of concealed drugs, weapons, cash or collectibles so they can be seized. The Contraband Detector is now equipped with radiation detection technology that allows first responders to establish safe perimeters in the event of a dirty-bomb detonation or other radioactive release.
