Contraband Cell Phone Detector to Be ‘Unleashed’ at the American Corrections Association Winter Conference

Tue, 02/01/2011 - 8:55am
Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc. (BVS), recently announced that its Pro series handheld cell phone detector called the Wolfhound™-PRO will be introduced at the American Corrections Association Winter Conference in San Antonio. The Wolfhound-PRO is the third in a line of BVS’ advanced, award winning cell phone detection products and the most advanced in terms of sensitivity and features.

The Wolfhound-PRO alerts security and correctional professionals to nearby cell phone activity with a bright OLED screen and integrated vibration notification. The device runs on an internal Li-ION rechargeable power system for up to 4+ hours enabling security personnel to continuously scan for all cellular voice, text or data transmissions. The intuitive one-button illuminated trackball allows for simple operation.

Wolfhound-PRO can also be used in countries with a mixed set of frequencies, where US and EU frequencies are used in different geographic locations. Coupled with the Wolfhound-PRO is a multi-band DF (Direction Finding) Antenna that makes the unit the ideal tool for pin pointing the targeted cell phone.

WolfHound-PRO technical specifications and features include:

* Receiver design boasts a dynamic range of -60 dB with user settable sensitivity

* Default sensitivity is set at –80dBm; user selectable up to –50dBm with a resolution of 2dB for detection in a noisy environment (typical of prisons)

* Selectivity rejection of at least 50 dB at 1 MHz from the uplink frequency bands provides high immunity from false triggering caused by base stations, personal communication devices and other sources of interference

* Integrated logging capability with built-in nonvolatile memory and real time clock allows the user to record and time-stamp the beginning and the end of each detected cell phone transmission

* A standard USB port for internal storage is provided to download the records to a PC for further analysis

* The user selectable mobile frequency bands allow the same unit to be used around the world; both USA and European mobile uplink bands are supported.

The WolfHound-PRO is the latest device in a family of cell phone detection products from BVS. The original Wolfhound was released in December of 2009 followed by the WolfHound-LITE in June of last year. Combined, the devices are in use in hundreds of correctional facilities in both US and international locations.
