Doculus Lumus® is designed in cooperation with document specialists from Austria and many other document experts from all over the world. Border guard officers and all people who have to check official documents use the mobile document checking device Doculus Lumus® to prove the documents authenticity. Experienced document specialists know what they need to look for. Often the place where fake documents are analysed in more detail is an office far away from the border posts. So fake documents must be identified by the frontlines at the border, on the motorway, on the train or at the airport. Usually only 30 seconds are available for the examination of a document and to decide whether a fake is present or not. Frontline counts!
15x or 22x Magnification
If you have to scan whole documents to see as many features as possible in minimum time, you would prefer 15x magnification. 22x magnification allows you to see finest details, but the area of sight is smaller due to the necessary lens construction. If you have to go into detail and would like to see things like paper fibers, printing artefacts and even finest deviations of the surface, you would prefer 22x – especially when you are in the office and have enough time for a deep analysis.
4 Extra strong UV LEDs 365 nm
The UV light mode with its 4 extra strong UV LEDs (365 nm) allows an optimal depiction of UV security inks through the lens as well as from the side from short distance. Check nanotext and several fibers on passports and bank notes. Also ideal for effortless detecting of UV features on polycarbonate cards. You can use your Doculus Lumus® also as a small UV torchlight so you don’t need an extra torchlight.
4 White Incident Light LEDs
White incident light with 4 strong LEDs (bright field illumination) allows you to check even the finest printed details like microtext or nanotext. Recognize with which printing technology a document was printed. (laserprint, inkjet, offset, etc.). Many people want to activate the incident light with their thumbs, so there is the possibility to switch from right hand mode to left hand mode. How this works exactly, can be found in the user manual.
In certain situations, e.g. at bright sunshine, the normal incident light mode may be too dark. You will need a higher light intensity to shine through water marks as well. The torchlight mode allows an optimal illumination even in a very bright surrounding. In dark environment use this mode as a torch replacement for illuminating close objects.
8 LEDs for Rotating Oblique Light
8 LEDs for automatic or manually rotating oblique light to the left or right. The oblique light mode allows you to identify intaglios, embossing and colour changing kinegrams or holograms. With the aid of 8 LEDs that successively shine on the document in 45° steps, shadows are created at heightened or deepened features (dark field illumination). Colour changing elements look different depending on the angle of light incidence. So you have the possibility of a 3D realistic detection of various sublime security features and holograms.
Steady Light Mode for Documentation Purpose
The steady light function is very useful if you want to take a snapshot through the lens with your cell phone or smartphone camera or you do not want to keep the button pressed with your finger.
Click the battery cover to the documentation position and you can lay your mobile phone flat on the Doculus Lumus®. There is no extra app necessary for photo documentation. Simply use the camera application on your smartphone. Click on the text box to start editing the content and make sure to add any relevant details or information that you want to share with your visitors.
Doculus Lumus® is specially designed for outdoor use.Whether it falls down or you hit it somewhere, Doculus Lumus® can handle it! The housing is water-rebellent but not waterproof. Please also don’t drown it into coffee (sugar has a conductive effect). There was a user, who accidentally drove by car over it, even our Doculus Lumus® has endured that – but we recommend not to try this at home!
