Product: CashCode One
Manufacturer: Crane Payment Solutions
Canadian-based Crane Payment Solutions manufactures the CashCode brand of high-security banknote validators, including the widely acclaimed CashCode One model for the gaming, AWP and VLT markets.
The CashCode One is a unique validator that can handle any currency, protocol and voltage, all encompassed in one unit. Unique to CashCode are the sophisticated sensors and algorithms combined with true self-centering guides. These intelligent sensors detect banknote densities, the legitimacy of security threads, verification of polymer and paper currency and any applicable watermarks inherent to a banknote’s paper design. The self-centering guides align banknotes perfectly even when inserted at an angle, to assure the notes are ready for optimum validation.
Upgrades are easy with the BlueChip smart-stick flash memory. CashCode One does not require any manual calibrating or tuning after updates are done; these are completed automatically upon reset. As casinos continue to move toward server-based gaming, automatic, simplistic upgrade paths will be essential for optimizing operational efficiency.
CashCode One is a product family with several product extensions, such as the oneCheck, oneTrack and the 2500 Note Cashbox.
Introduced at G2E last year, the oneCheck cash management solution provides several performance reports that can be utilized daily. No other system can print on-the-spot performance and firmware statistics for both the printer and validator. The oneCheck allows operators to check cashbox contents on the casino floor with no additional security, and can assist in reducing player dispute times from days to just minutes. This can be very efficient when regulators show up unannounced to check the firmware versions in the slot machines.
The oneTrack RFID solution is designed to eliminate identification issues and make reconciliations quick, simple and accurate. The database is web-based, so it is accessible from anywhere there is internet—which is convenient if owners want to check revenue of several properties even if they are not in the same city.
The 2500 Note Cashbox is designed for high-volume deposit, payment and change machines. This latest product extension provides multiple cashbox capacity alternatives, further enhancing the flexibility of the CashCode One.
