The RCD-2000 bulbs will last for over 3,000 hours! The RCD-2000 is the complete solution for businesses and organizations that are in a constant fight against fake and counterfeit bills and IDs.


Ultraviolet (UV) Detection

The UV counterfeit detection system allows for easy verification of security threads on bills and holographic images on IDs. All authentic US bills are minted with a thin security thread embedded in the fabric. When viewed under ultraviolet rays, the thread will glow a certain color depending on the bill denomination. Most government issues IDs, such as drivers licenses, will have an invisible holographic image printed on the ID that will only be revealed under UV light.

Microprint Detection

The magnifying lens conveniently equipped on the top of the unit allows for the verification of microprinting, which are tiny text, numbers, and markings hidden in the bill. The most notable microprinting security marking is the text printed on the security thread of each US bill.  The print will read different texts according to the bill denomination.

Watermark Verification

Watermarks are hidden images embedded within the authentic bill’s fabric that are difficult to see. The RCD-2000’s fluorescent plate will shine light through the bill to reveal a watermark image that is located on the far right side of the bill (bill facing up). The watermark image will resemble that of the person on the bill.

Magnetic Ink Detection

All authentic US bills are printed with ink that has small traces of iron. The magnetic detection system allows for easy verification of the iron ink.  Simply rub a bill face down on the detection plate in a fast, back and forth motion. The RCD-2000’s magnetic detection will beep and blink red if it detects this magnetic trait in the ink.

Includes a US Security Chart Guide
All Royal Sovereign counterfeit detectors comes equipped with a US security chart guide. This guide will help you determine if a US bill is authentic or counterfeit by diagramming the location of the markings present on all genuinely minted US bills.
