Ease of Use
The Semacon S-900 Series Compact Automatic Currency Authenticators feature a
simple Pass/Fail indicator and eject direction control in a durable compact space-
saving design. Feeding a bill into the machine is done quickly and easily, followed by
an immediate indication of the authentication results.
State of the Art Detection Technology
The S-900 Series utilizes Semacon’s SmartCert™ leading edge technology including
custom designed sensors to authenticate each banknote. The machine verifies the
banknote paper density and size and checks both sides of the banknote for validity
of the magnetic features, metameric infrared marks, ink properties and banknote
infrared images. Banknote authenticity is based on an integral analysis of all
measurements taken, providing the highest counterfeit detection accuracy available
in a compact point of sale machine.
Fast Processing and Results
Banknotes are processed at a rate of 80 per minute. Authenticated notes may be
ejected through the rear of the machine or returned to the feed tray and cause the
PASS indicator to be illuminated. Suspect notes are returned to the feed tray and
cause the machine to beep and the FAIL indicator to be illuminated.
Optional Rechargeable Battery
Model S-960 features an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery which enables the
machine to be used with or without an AC power cord. While plugged in, the battery
is automatically recharged. While in battery mode the machine will operate for 10–14
hours depending on the frequency of use.
Optional Belt Holster
For portable applications, an optional Belt Holster is available for model S-960 that
enables the operator to authenticate bills while wearing the machine on their belt.
These models can be easily upgraded to handle any future banknote releases which
may be issued by the Federal Reserve Bank
