Detectors in general


According to our long-time experiences in counterfeit recognition and detection is our offer oriented on detectors, which are the most useful for you and efficient in recognition of the most dangerous counterfeits.


Of course, for efficient inspection is also necessary to have valuable information how to recognize the counterfeit and what to be aimed for during the banknote inspection.



Which detector is the most suitable for you?

Magnifier with expert properties:

  • Magnification minimally 10x with possibility to light up the inspected area.
  • Side incident light - for intaglio presence inspection - we highly recommend to perform this inspection.
  • UV A or UV C light

UV lamps:

  • Pocket UV lamps are totally unsuitable!
  • Do not rely on table UV lamps as on the only inspection technique for checking banknote genuineness, because majority of counterfeits have well imitated protection in UV (ultra-violet) spectrum, even some euro counterfeits response to UV-rays identically as genuine banknotes.
  • If you decide to buy UV lamp, it has to be equipped with one or two 8W lamps. 4W lamp is insufficient!

Inspection of IR and magnetic protection:

  • Beware of cheap detectors which are able to check banknote protection in IR (infrared) spectrum or magnetic pigment presence by IR or magnetic probe with sound or indicator light signalization.
  • For efficient inspection in this cases we recommend detectors which are able to display images of IR and magnetic protection!
