Frequently asked questions (FAQ)


What is „successfully tested“?

Manufacturers of cash processing devices have the opportunity to test their devices on its counterfeit detection regularly by the National Counterfeit Centres (NCC). For this, a representative test set of genuine and counterfeit banknotes are presented in the presence of National Counterfeit Centres staff.

Further Informations to the test results please find on the website of the European Central Bank (ECB) www.ecb.int

What is spectral analysis?

Mouney processing devices with counterfeit detection technologies includes, depending on the version, a so-called spectral analysis. Here, different optical sensors will detect the colour fastness of each banknote.

What is a magnetic code?

Genuine Euro banknotes have a very sophisticated security feature: the magnetic code. This is a microscopic small code of magnetic and non-magnetic regions, which is incorporated on genuine bills. By using magnetic sensors, the money counting machines can read magnetic code and detect counterfeit banknotes. In this way on the one hand, the authenticity and on the other hand, the value of a banknote can be identified with the highest precision.

Service at cash processing devices?
