Abstract

A sensor for verifying value documents is designed to determine a luminescence characteristic of a value document that is moved past the sensor for verification purposes, and the provision of a velocity correction of the luminescence characteristic of the value document in the sensor, resulting in a distortion of the measured luminescence intensities. A reference sensor is used to determine an average velocity dependency of the luminescence characteristic of a reference medium, said average velocity dependency being averaged over both opposite directions of movement and being used to determine a velocity dependency of a corrective factor for the luminescence characteristic. Said determined velocity dependency is used to determine the corrective factor for the luminescence characteristic, said corrective factor applying to the velocity of the movement of the value document during the verification process, and the luminescence characteristic is then corrected by said corrective factor.

Abstract

A sensor for verifying value documents and designed to determine the luminescence time constant of a value document that is moved past the sensor for verification purposes, and the provision of a velocity correction of the luminescence time constant of the value document in the sensor. The relative movement between the value document and the sensor causes movement effects, resulting in a distortion of the intensity curve from which the luminescence time constant is derived. The luminescence time constant is corrected using a sensor-specific corrective factor ascertained for the velocity of the movement of the value document during the verification process. For this purpose, different sensor-specific corrective factors are used for different examples of sensors that are nominally identical in design and are part of the same sensor production series.

Abstract

The magnetic checking of value documents with highly coercive and/or lowly coercive magnetic regions, involves after the magnetization of all magnetic regions in a first direction, a second magnetization is effected, in which only the lowly coercive magnetic material is re-magnetized, but the highly coercive magnetic material remains aligned in the first magnetization direction. Magnetic signals are detected with an inductive magnetic detector, having several measuring tracks transverse to the transport direction of the value document. To evaluate the magnetic signals of the measuring tracks, the strongest two local minima and/or maxima of the respective magnetic signal are ascertained by a measuring track as a function of time. A minima comparison value and/or maxima comparison value of the respective measuring track is determined. The magnetic coding of the security element is checked on the basis of the minima comparison values and/or maxima comparison values of the measuring tracks.

Abstract

A method and a sensor for checking documents are provided in which the same detector is used for a remission measurement and a luminescence measurement of the value document. The remission measurement value being detected during the illumination of the value document with an excitation light used for luminescence excitation, and the luminescence measurement value after switching off the illumination. In order to reduce a distortion of the remission measurement value by the luminescence, a spectral detection filter is incorporated into the detection ray path, which has a transmission of at least 0.5% in the spectral region of the excitation light. The increased transmission of the spectral detection filter achieves that the excitation intensity impinging on the detector far exceeds the luminescence intensity occurring simultaneously with the excitation and thus reduces the mentioned distortion.

Abstract

A method for testing a value document having a luminescence feature involves guiding the value document past a test sensor in a transport direction. A scanning sequence occurs that repeats itself multiple times upon guiding the value document past the test sensor. The method involves irradiating a test region of the test sensor such that the test radiation is arranged to be remitted by the value document at least partially in a detection spectral range of the test sensor. Excitation radiation is arranged to cause an emission radiation of the luminescence feature in the detection spectral range. The method further involves scanning at least one location-dependent remission spectral value in the test region in the first irradiation phase, irradiating the test region only with the excitation radiation in a second irradiation phase, and scanning at least one location-dependent emission spectral value in the test region after the first irradiation phase.

A value document comprises at least one machine-readable feature substance in at the least two locations. According to the method, the value document is excited at least locally at measuring locations. Furthermore, a feature intensity with respect to the machine-readable feature substance is captured location-resolved at several different locations of the value document. The location-based feature intensities are classified location-based with the help of a threshold value. Furthermore, location-based limits of a location distribution to be expected of the machine-readable feature substance are determined. Finally, a location-based distribution of the classified feature intensities is assessed.

Abstract

A value document has a security marking in the form of at least two luminescing substances which are present in a defined relative quantitative share and are jointly excitable by one excitation pulse. The time courses of the intensities are different and at least one luminescing substance has a non-monoexponential time course. In a method for identifying the security marking, the time course of the total intensity is detected and a linear combination of a formula is adapted including time courses of the intensities of the luminescing substances. The security marking is identified on the basis of the linear coefficients.
