Magnetic Detection Capability

AM Belgium was contacted by a company that produces banknote validators which are installed in payment terminals in off street parking, public transport, vending, gaming, etc, devices.

They wanted to add a magnetic detection capability to their validators.

AM Belgium has developed the perfect simple sensor for this solution. Our Romanian production site is ideally placed to build this sensor cost efficient in larger numbers.  

Multi-Channel Banknote Sensor

AM Belgium was contacted by a company that manufactures cash deposit machines. They needed an upgrade on the magnetic discriminating capabilities of their banknote verification unit.

Together with the customers' R&D, the engineers of AM Belgium have developed the perfect short- and long edge multi- channel sensor that gives the customer the opportunity to compare the magnetic signal of each individual banknote and sort genuine from counterfeit.

Thanks to AM Belgium production capacities, our customer can place his machines on the top level of their niche market. Over and over again… 

Magnetic Image Sensor

AM Belgium was contacted by a company that needed to verify the magnetic properties of banknotes at the highest possible speed and level of discrimination.

The AM Belgium engineers came to the conclusion that the best way to do this is to develop a sensor that can detect a magnetic image at speeds up to 10 meters per second.

Thanks to AM Belgiums' highly skilled workers this cutting edge sensors with 192 channels (and even more) proved to be an excellent tool for our customer keeping up the highest level of required quality.

 A masterpiece !
