Portable Forgery Detector

PKI 9415Print

The PKI 9415 is a versatile, compact and portable forgery detection system for the examination of all types of suspect documents. It is particularly useful for officials and immigration officers at sea- and airports, mobile border controls and the scene of crime officers. A large unobstructed working area allows quick and easy examination using the four integral light sources:

  • A diffuse white light for visual examination in low light conditions
  • Two black light lamps providing a strong ultraviolet source for examination of bleaching, alterations and fluorescent security marks
  • A transmissive source for inspection of watermarks and internal threads
  • An intense fibre optic illuminator for examination of intended writing and for transmission through photographs.

PKI 9415 can be operated by three different power sources: an internal battery, a wide range of AC power supplies and an external DC power source – like car batteries. PKI 9415 is housed in a rugged ABS hardcover case with “O-Ring” sealing for the protection against water, dust and other contaminants.
