NIST stands for New Integrated Scanning Technology.
WHEC's new technology, or NIST, is embodied in a next-generation sensor capable of reading different types of information, all within a single unit.

NIST ~Explanation~

WHEC's next-generation technology, NIST, is a sensor that combines CIS(Contact Image Sensor), DIS(Depth Image Sensor) and MIS(Magnetic Image Sensor) into one.

New Integrated Scanning Technology

Before this new technology became available, each type of information was read in a simple unit using multiple sensors. With NIST, different types of information can be read simultaneously with one unit and instantly processed. We have designed NIST to detect and analyze a wide range of different objects and elements.

The three sensor types share a high-resolution, 100 dpi interface that facilitates easy data processing and highly accurate detection of counterfeit banknotes.

Even though CIS, DIS and MIS individually are sometimes unable to read banknotes if tape has been applied, or when the bills are wet, oily or otherwise soiled, with NIST it is possible to read various types of information at once in order to determine whether or not the banknote is authentic.

NIST:What can be detected

In addition to reading information in optical, electric and magnetic formats, we hope to enable the detection of data in other forms as well in pursuit of even greater possibilities through more precise analyses and judgments. This is our goal as we pursue the further development of NIST, and here at WHEC we will continue striving to achieve new, next-generation technologies.
