Detect counterfeit currency in less than a second
Did you know that the creation of counterfeit currency is on the rise and increasingly difficult to detect? Worldwide scams range from Super K counterfeit bills initiated by North Korea during the 1990s to todays Super X currency circulated by Latin American countries. One man, Yoshihide Matsumura, chief executive officer of Matsumura Technology, based in Japan, recently decided to beat counterfeiters at their game. He developed a currency detector that checks more than 76 DNA attributes of currency to validate authenticity. Now offered by the U.S. branch of Matsumura Technology, located in Weston, FL, Model EXC-5700A counterfeit detector takes about 0.7 second to reveal whether currency is authentic. Using a series of infrared rays, lasers, magnetism, and other sophisticated tech-nology, the detector tests U.S. currency ranging from $1 to $100 bills. Said to be 99.999% accurate, the detector displays results on built-in LCD readout. Customers receive up to seven years of product support, which includes updates to keep one step ahead of counterfeiters. The counterfeit detector can serve a variety of agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service, law-enforcement authorities, and the Federal Reserve Bank.
