• What types of documents can the CT-550 Authenticate?

The CT550 is designed for authentication of banknotes (currency), only. Many of the world’s major currencies are available as software that can be installed onto the unit, for example, US dollars, Canadian Dollars, Euros, British Pounds, Hong Kong Dollars, Japanese Yen and more.

• How does the CT-550 work?

The CT-550 is an automatic banknote authenticator. The CT-550 mechanically pulls the banknote being tested through its testing area, where it utilizes Infrared and visible light to evaluate the printed quality of the note and to “read” certain types of Machine-Readable Characters printed in both visible and invisible inks. The CT-550 also reads and deciphers magnetic characters. After identifying the type of note, the CT-550 confirms that the length, width and thickness of the note are correct.

• What environments can the CT-550 be used in?

The CT-550 is designed for use in high-volume transaction environments. Once a user learns how to feed bills into the CT-550, they will be able to test up to 35 or 40 bills per minute. Although long-term continuous use of the machine requires that the CT-550 be plugged into an A/C outlet, the included Lithium battery does allow for use of the CT-550 remotely, in locations where no power supply is available.

• What comes with the CT-550 when I buy it?

• A CT-550 unit with a lithium battery already installed
• A/C power cord adaptor
• Mini USB Cable (The cable is not needed unless/until you need to install updated software. For example, when a new-design banknote is released.)
• Owner’s Manual
