Ultimate LED Fiberscope

One Piece Lightweight LED Fiberscope

Ultimate LED Fiberscope® (US Registration #3622007) in our CEK-R Kits
The one piece design allows all components to be housed inside the ergonomically designed pistol grip handle. When in use, no external cable or connections are required. Battery charging time is approximately 3 hours, allowing about 4 hours of continual “ON” time. Recent improvements due to our new LED light source and control circuit design have enabled our one piece LED fiberscopes with two way articulation to have a very high light output of 40,000 LUX when compared to competitors- The four way articulation scopes have a lower light output in the range of 29,000 LUX as the number of illumination fibers are reduced to accommodate the two additional control wires but still offer higher illumination that our competitors. All readings may vary depending on length of fiberscope and other factors. Each fiberscope comes complete with a spare battery to enable extended inspections to be carried out, external battery charger included.

In common with all Ultimate Fiberscopes® this fiberscope is field repairable by the end user and is supplied complete with repair kit and instructions.

SASRAD will give an allowance against sales of our Ultimate Fiberscopes and SAS-Hitech-Xpose Density meter when competitors equipment is returned to us complete in its transport case – it may be in working or non working order. The amount of the allowance varies depending on the Number of units that we will accept each month. (we may re-use certain parts of the returned equipment in the unit we send back to you)

Is a 7.5 microcurie radiation source safer than 10 microcuries as competitors claim?

This paper is intended to explain the difference in the Effective Dose to humans between 2 different activities (7.5 uCi and 10 uCi) of 133Ba isotope used in a hand held contraband detector relative to ordinary risk we face in everyday life.

A competitor of ours has offered a version of their unit which is 7.5 microcuries of radiation against our 10 microcuries, claiming that this is safer for the user, In fact, the increased dose to a user of a 10 uCi source over a 7.5 uCi source for a worst case scenario is essentially equal to what one gets in one second of airplane flight on a cross country trip from Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, CA, a total flying time of up to five hours or 1 in 18,000

10 Microcurie Source

Now let’s compare both these radiation source activities and the actual working life of the source. The working life is based on the sources initial activity and the half-life of the isotope. For 133Ba, the half-life is 10.53 years. So for a 7.5 uCi source, the working life is about 35-40% less than the working life of a 10 uCi source. This translates that the dollar per dollar cost of the 7.5 uCi source is much higher than the cost of the 10 uCi source! And finally another consideration is the scanning time for the contraband detector. Excluding other factors involved, a 7.5 uCi source has 25% less photons/sec output than a 10 uCi source and this in turn increases the length of time it takes to complete a scan. This also may reduce the probability of positively identifying a concealed item (contraband)

The Xpose has graphing & digital display, available tablet remote control of all functions and is MIL STD 810G - Water Resistant to IP56 (waterproof available on request) - ISO9001:2008 and most importantly sold under an Exempt Radiation License from the NRC. In other words virtually no restrictions on sale, possession of transfer of the unit.

Our competitor has none of these features.

In short, when comparing the 2 activities (7.5 uCi and 10 uCi) 133Ba sources in hand held contraband detection systems: For those interested in the science and math behind these conclusions we do have a detailed white paper available upon request.

Radiation Licensing


There are several important points that users and potential users of the New Technology SAS-Hitech-Xpose Contraband Detector should be aware of. In order to simplify ownership of this device, SAS-Hitech-Xpose has been developed and licensed under United States Law as an Exempt device. Other density meters of this type are licensed under a General license. There are highly important differences between the two types of licenses. Here are a couple of the major differences:


General licensed (competitors product) requirements (per their own manual):
  • Rope or cordoning off the area to keep people away
  • Contact public health (radiological authorities) and emergency services provider for assistance
  • Notify the manufacturer
Exempt license requirements (SAS-Hitech-Xpose)

Pick up unit and send it to Authorized Service Center or factory for repair (nothing more)


General license (competitors) requirements:

The device is assigned to a specific location and cannot be assigned to another location without written notification to the radiation regulatory entity (State or Federal as applicable). If the device is given or transferred to another location, even if it is with the same agency (i.e. if PD Precinct 5 gives it to PD Precinct 6), a transfer of location must be filed by the user (licensee) prior to transfer. Failure to do so is subject to fine and reprimand.

Disposal of General Licensed unit: The user MUST dispose of the device as Hazardous waste and transfer to a license disposal facility. This can be done, under US law by:
  • Exporting the device in accordance with NRC regulations found in 10CFR§110
  • Transfer to a Specific Licensee authorized to receive the device with supporting documentation.
  • Transfer to another General Licensee under strict regulations found in 10CFR§31.5(c)(9) or equivalent Agreement State regulations.
Exempt license requirement (SAS-Hitech-Xpose)
  • Remove label and throw away in regular garbage.
Or for transfer of ownership
  • No restriction. It can be given it to whomever, whenever, wherever required. No paperwork/transfer licenses/authorizations required.
