Leading The Way In Forgery Detection
An innovative range of ultraviolet lamps for criminolgy, document examination and forensic investigation + magnifiers + forgery detection tools
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.
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.
A robust case for transporting the SA-UV-1140BFD for use in field operations. Padded for maximum protection the case also has additional compartments for mains cables and forgery detection tools.
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.
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.
A dual function Document Examination System which is identical to the LFD version, but is fitted with a single Longwave compact ultraviolet lamp for identifying UV security safeguards and a single 9 watt white lamp mounted behind a diffusing window for the examination of transmissive security features.
Similar to the SA-UV-1140FD but this Ultraviolet Document Viewer is fitted with a single compact longwave UV tube, which gives approximately 5 times more UV illumination than linear tubes. 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.
A DC version of the SA-UV-1140CFD for use in vehicles or in remote areas where mains power is not available. The SA-UV-1140CDCFD is identical to the SA-UV-1140CFD except that it is powered from a 12 volt DC source, such as a battery or vehicle cigarette lighter socket and has a carrying handle. 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.
A larger twin lamp Ultraviolet Document Viewer fitted with two 6 watt linear tubes. A stainless steel reflector maximises the UV light projected onto 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. Applications include identity and travel document checking at banks and airports and the forensic examination of documents for erasures and solvent staining.
**AS USED BY THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE (IRS)
Similar to the SA-UV-1160FD, but fitted with two 9 watt compact lamps, giving the most intense UV light output of all our Document Viewers. Applications are in areas of high ambient lighting for the checking of security safeguards on larger documents. An eye protection window prevents the UV lamp being viewed directly. The SA-UV-1160CFD is one of the best sellers in our range, with many UK banks, such as the RBS, Lloyds and Halifax preferring this model.
A dual function mains powered Document Examination System for verifying the authenticity of security documents such as passports, identity cards, currency and driving licenses. The units incorporates two 6 watt, Ultraviolet 365nm lamps mounted on a stainless steel reflector and a single 9 watt white lamp mounted behind a diffusing window for the examination of transmissive security features. The lamps are switched independently by individual switches on the right side of the unit, thus allowing both lamps to be on at the same time or either lamp to be on alone.
A robust battery powered portable UV lamp with two 4 watt linear tubes housed in an attractive extruded aluminium housing. Powered by the internal NiCad rechargeable battery, the SA-UV-IlluminatorFD will give over two hours of continuous usage on full charge. A charging power supply is supplied as standard, but the SA-UV-IlluminatorFD can be charged from a variety of DC sources including a vehicle lighter socket. Applications include crime scene work, checking of security marks on property, checking security documents and identifying forensic marking solutions.
The mains powered version of the SA-UV-IlluminatorFD, but using a single compact 9 watt UV tube. This compact lamp version has a higher UV light output than the SA-UV-IlluminatorFD and is therefore particularly suitable for work in areas of high ambient lighting.
