Amongst those products on display were Money Controls’ Universal and Compact Hoppers. The Universal Hopper offers unrivalled performance, reduced operating costs and an extended lifetime. Among the other attributes that make it so popular is its large capacity, which reduces the number of empty or refill cycles. The Universal Hopper can hold up to 1,200 Euros or 950 one pound coins and is suitable for almost all global coin sets, including coins with holes, without the need for adjustment. The Compact Hopper meanwhile does exactly what the name says, providing a large capacity with a small footprint, making it ideal for many applications, including retrofit.
Also on show was Money Controls’ Ardac Elite bill validator, CashCode’s Bill-to-Bill 60 bill recycler and the NRI G-13 coin validator. Among the innovations found on the Ardac Elite is the first and only field proven imaging technology. If there are any disputes about the last bill entered an image of the last note inserted can be displayed, either on the gaming machine display, or by simply plugging in a PDA via the USB port. The Ardac Elite will accept ‘street money’ in virtually any condition, and inserted at virtually any angle and is compatible with almost all gaming machines.
The NRI G-13.mft coin validator series has been designed to meet a multitude of coin acceptance needs. Using multi-frequency technology for reliable coin recognition the G.13.mft accepts up to 32 different coins. The G-13.mft is available in a multitude of different interfaces, including USB-ccTalk, which offers the potential for remote update of coin data, easily handling new coins or reacting to new frauds.
CashCode’s Bill-to-Bill 60 was the industry’s first 60-bill recycler designed for the European AWP market, and was also exhibited in Rome. The Bill-to-Bill 60 accepts 5€ through to 50€ bills and can then store and recycle 5€s, 10€s or 20€s to payout as change or dispense as winnings. With it, AWP machines can maintain longer uptimes without having coin hopper depletion. What’s more, the bank notes used to payout are the same ones the unit receives. Labour savings are also being made by not having to refill bank note dispensers and / or coin hoppers.
