GLENDORA, CA July 30, 2013 — FraudFighter™, a division of UVeritech, Inc. and a leading supplier of counterfeit currency detection equipment today announced improved replacement bulbs for FraudFighter Products. The new replacement part are brighter and are to be used with its current and previously produced UV light fixtures — The UV-16 and POS15 ultra-violet (UV) counterfeit detection scanners.
The new part number is T5UV16-POS15.
“Sometimes, from a negative situation, something positive can be gained,” said Sean Trundy, Chief Operations Officer of the company. “In 2011, due to quality and safety concerns, we replaced over 30,000 bulbs that were currently on the market or in use by our customers. Shortly thereafter, we improved our manufacturing and have continued to make improvements.”
The new T5UV16-POS15 bulb is smaller in diameter, and contains a higher concentration of the expensive rare-earth minerals required to produce UV light emissions. As a result, greater UV intensity is produced at lower electrical currents than was previously required.
The new T5UV16-POS15 bulb is completely backwards-compatible with the UV-16 and POS15 products produced by FraudFighter™.
FraudFighter customers should be cautioned that unauthorized dealers are actively soliciting sales of the older part number directly to FraudFighter users. Due to the issues previously mentioned regarding safety and quality, FraudFighter will not be able to honor the product warranty of any UV-16 or POS15 product in which the incorrect replacement part has been installed. This restriction will take effect as of August 1, 2013.
