Review ICE TOTALLY GAMING CRANE LOOKS FOR CONTINUITY


ON EVER CHANGING LANDSCAPE Crane Payment Innovations showcased the combined range of note and coin solutions now available to the market


Having completed its merger with MEI and Crane Payment Solutions, the new Crane Payment Innovations was at ICE with new branding combing design aspects from both companies and its biggest range of products; including the Money Controls Ardac Elite and CashCode one bill validators, the NRI v2 eagle coin acceptor and the Money Controls Universal Hopper.


The extended product range included the Money Controls Ardac Elite, with its field-proven state- of-the-art imaging technology to ensure the highest standards of validation. Its performance is a result of its advanced image capture and data processing technology that monitors 200,000 data points for every bill inserted, looking at the complete note. This means increased security and very high acceptance rates, accepting ‘street money’ in virtually any state, and inserted at virtually any angle.


Benefits of using the CashCode One include: a universal design to accept all currencies; one single hardware platform to reduce support and operation costs, and flexible architecture with multiple options and configurations. The CashCode one also has advanced sensor technology that scans both sides of the bill, thereby optimising recognition. Its self-centering transport guides adjust automatically to perfectly align bills or barcodes of different widths, even when fed in at an angle. The CashCode One also comes with oneCheck cash management and accountability solution.


The NRI v² eagle coin validator is setting standards within the payment systems industry. By using the unique MFT validation technology and additional sorting control sensors, outstanding coin security is guaranteed. The v² eagle features simultaneous evaluation of 24 measurement parameters for 32 coin channels, as well as an anti-jam sensor for fast coin insertion. The flexible approach of the eagle means it comes with top and front coin entry, and a range of sorters.


Also on display was the Money Controls Universal Hopper. The best-selling Universal Hopper has sold millions worldwide since launch, and offers unrivalled performance and reduces operating costs. As with all Crane Payment Solutions’ products, the Universal

CPI’s David John explained how Crane had just had to deal with Latvia replacing its currency, the Lats, with the Euro. Crane Payment Innovations has worked together with customers and its distributor Hansab to make sure that a smooth changeover is guaranteed. Work that has been carried out ahead of this changeover includes three different areas; a software update of existing products: Crane Payment Innovations has successfully provided all tools to update NRI products in the field with new Euro currency information. The main products concerned are the NRI G-13.mft coin validator and the G-46 coin changer, which is already out of production for seven years. By doing this CPI underlines its commitment to being service friendly by supporting also end of live field base products.

Next up is a change that will affect many operators across Europe with the introduction of the new €10 banknote which will enter circulation on the September 23 2014.
