Every modern banknote has integrated UV security features that only show up under ultraviolet light at a certain frequency. The Safescan 50 is designed specifically to help you verify these features and identify potentially counterfeit banknotes.The Safescan 50 not only reveals the integrated UV security features in modern banknotes; it also instantly illuminates the UV security features built into today’s credit cards, passports and other ID documents, as well as UV ink applied to protect valuable items from theft or confirm event admission.The Safescan 50’s ingenious “warm-start” technology triples the UV bulb’s usual lifetime while reducing energy use. When you turn on the device, an intelligent system preheats the bulb’s electrodes, enabling the bulb to be switched on and off without reducing its useful life. Ideal for frequent use.No need to dim the surroundings or add extra UV sources: the Safescan 50’s unique integrated reflector nearly doubles the amount of UV light that reaches the banknote or ID card, giving you the best possible view of its UV security features. The Safescan 50 is designed for counter top use in mind. Its compact size takes up a minimum of space beside your register, and its sleek look—available in duotone grey or black—complements every business interior.
