Compact Bill Acceptor


Compact Bill Acceptor

JCM Global recently unveiled its new compact bill acceptor, Vega.

Vega is a new-generation bill validator that comes with a lockable, removable cash box. The cash box has two capacity options: the standard, 300-note capacity cash box; and a 1,000-note capacity version. There also is an optional, multi-directional frame lock, giving Vega maximum security.

With its small footprint and versatility, Vega can accommodate a wide variety of applications. Key target markets include AWP-style gaming and commercial uses such as vending, kiosks and other terminal-based applications.

Vega’s bank note acceptance ranges from widths of 60 mm to 82 mm, enabling validation of up to €100 or £20 notes. The standard acceptance and validation time cycle is three seconds.  

Software downloads can be achieved via USB port in less than a minute. Security measures include a new optical sensor and mechanical technology to eliminate theft methods such as stringing and fishing. All major protocol interfaces are supported, including serial, parallel pulse, MDB, ID003 and ccTalk.

The illuminated bezel makes for an attractive appearance when mounted into any cabinet.

The sealed sensor lens panels and banknote transport path provide ample protection from dust and liquid spills. The lockable cash box can be removed from either end of the frame by a simple adjustment. Similarly, the unit can be mounted to operate in horizontal, stacker-down or stacker-up positions, giving maximum flexibility.

For more information on the Vega, email or call 702-651-0000.
