Ease of Use

The Semacon S-900 Series Compact Automatic Currency Authenticators feature a simple Pass/Fail indicator and eject direction control in a durable compact space saving design. Feeding a bill into the machine is done quickly and easily, followed by an immediate indication of the authentication results.

State of the Art Detection Technology

The S-900 Series utilizes Semacon’s SmartCert™ leading edge technology including custom designed sensors to authenticate each banknote. The machine verifies the banknote paper density and size and checks both sides of the banknote for validity of the magnetic features, metameric infrared marks, ink properties and banknote infrared images. Banknote authenticity is based on an integral analysis of all measurements taken, providing the highest counterfeit detection accuracy available in a compact point of sale machine.

Fast Processing and Results

Banknotes are processed at a rate of 80 per minute. Authenticated notes may be ejected through the rear of the machine or returned to the feed tray and cause the PASS indicator to be illuminated. Suspect notes are returned to the feed tray and cause the machine to beep and the FAIL indicator to be illuminated.

Optional Rechargeable Battery

Model S-960 features an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery which enables the machine to be used with or without an AC power cord. While plugged in, the battery is automatically recharged. While in battery mode the machine will operate for 10–14 hours depending on the frequency of use.

Optional Belt Holster

For portable applications, an optional Belt Holster is available for model S-960 that enables the operator to authenticate bills while wearing the machine on their belt.


These models can be easily upgraded to handle any future banknote releases which may be issued by the Federal Reserve Bank.
