Typical authentication systems use commonly-available detectors that can read multiple types of luminescent materials. Our brand and document authentication systems use proprietary optoelectronic detectors that are paired with specific Honeywell taggants. These detectors are customized for the specific chemistry and concentration level of Honeywell materials. This “lock and key” technology helps protect against counterfeiters attempting to use similar materials. A variety of fixed and portable detectors are available to suit your application:

  • Portable detectors for field verification
  • Fixed and high-speed detectors for production lines, quality control, and forensic analysis
  • Original equipment manufacturer components for integration into other equipment, including document scanners
