SA-UV-1140-FD

Twin lamp ultraviolet
document viewer

A compact Ultraviolet Document Viewer fitted with two 4 watt linear longwave UV tubes. A stainless steel reflector maximises the UV light on the document under investigation and the shrouded construction blocks overhead ambient light. The reflector is cut away at the rear to allow large documents to be examined without turning. Applications include identity and travel document verification at banks and airports.

document viewer

A battery and mains powered version of the SA-UV-1140FD with integral rechargeable nickel metalhydride batteries. A built in charger charges the battery when connected to the mains supply, even when the lamps are on, and an overnight charge will give over 2 hours of continuous use. As with the other lamps in the SA-UV-1140FD series, a stainless steel reflector maximises the UV light on the document under investigation and the shrouded construction blocks overhead ambient lighting. The reflector is cut away at the rear to allow large documents to be examined without turning.

Wall Mounted
Document Viewer

With the same specification as the SA-UV-1140CFD, but with flanges for mounting on a wall, the SA-UV-1140CWFD has been designed for situations where it is not possible to use a desk mounted document viewer. These maybe at entrance gates or doors of prisons or other security establishments where a rapid check of passes or stamps is required. Likewise the SA-UV-140CWFD may be used in nightclubs and entertainment parks where re-entry stamps need to be quickly checked.

SA-UV-1140CD-FD

Under shelf ultraviolet
document viewer

Where space is at a premium at Immigration Control points, the SA-UV-1140CDFD can be fitted under a shelf, thus freeing up desk space. Fitted with the same compact longwave UV tube as the SA-UV-1140CFD, the SA-UV-1140CDFD also has a powerful LED light for the checking of transmissive security features and for highlighting  indented writing. The SA-UV-1140CDFD has two parts, a housing which is screwed to the underside of a desk or shelf and the lamp unit which can be removed from the housing for quick and easy lamp change. The LED light is fitted with a collimating lens system to produce a powerful narrow beam with its’ position adjustable to suit individual users. An eye protection window prevents the user  viewing the UV lamp directly and a flat magnifier is mounted on this window for close-up inspection.

The SA-UV-1140CFD also has a stainless steel reflector to maximise the UV light on the document and a shrouded design for excluding overhead ambient light. The reflector is cut away at the rear to allow large documents to be examined without turning, and an eye protection window prevents the UV lamp eing viewed directly. Applications include identity and travel document checking at banks and airports and the forensic examination of documents for erasures and solvent staining.

As with the SA-UV-1140CFD a stainless steel reflector maximises the UV light on the document and the shrouded design excludes overhead ambient light. The reflector is cut away at the rear to allow large documents to be examined without turning, and an eye protection window prevents the UV lamp being viewed directly. Applications include identity and travel document checking at remote border crossings or during field operations.
