Safescan 40H Handheld UV Note Detector

Delivery Info

Every modern banknote has integrated UV security features that only show up under ultraviolet light at a certain frequency. The Safescan 40H is designed specifically to help you verify these features and identify potentially counterfeit banknotes.

Lightweight and compact, the battery-powered Safescan 40H is the perfect UV counterfeit detector wherever you need fast, portable banknote verification, such as at markets and events or in taxis and delivery vans.

The Safescan 40H 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.

To provide comprehensive manual counterfeit detection, the Safescan 40H has a convenient integrated white LED to help you visually identify the metallic thread, watermarks and microprint built into modern banknotes.
