Small or large, basic or highly-sophisticated, Cummins Allison offers the widest range of counterfeit detection available in the industry today.
An ever-increasing number of counterfeit bills are becoming more advanced than their predecessors. These bills often include most of the same characteristics as real U.S. currency, including watermarks, magnetic ink, color shifting ink, and security threads.
Using cutting-edge sensors, Cummins Allison JetScan counters catch many sophisticated counterfeit bills that other systems miss. Six different modes of detection sensing -- with varying levels of sophistication -- are available to meet the specific needs of currency processors:
Scan sensors: Identifies the true value of clip cornered bills. Low quality counterfeits are also challenged as "no calls."
Magnetic sensing: Basic magnetic sensing compares magnetic ink levels to different pre-set levels for each denomination. Thus, high value bills can be carefully screened while $1 or $5 settings can be low or off. Additional magnetic properties are monitored with more advanced sensors available in certain JetScan® models
Fluorescence sensing: Tests each bill's paper and stops when a bill fluoresces differently than real currency
Enhanced ultraviolet: Ultraviolet (UV) sensing validates paper authenticity. Different degrees of UV detection are incorporated into certain JetScan models with higher counterfeit detection capabilities
Infrared sensors: The latest technology in combating counterfeits tests the printing quality of each bill
IQ™ Sensing Technology: Advanced analytic software combined with cutting edge sensors catches counterfeit notes that other systems miss.
