Gaming Partners International has developed a convenient way to validate radio frequency-identification gaming chips.
The Portable Chip Reader gives casinos flexibility in authenticating and validating RFID-enabled gaming chips, plaques and jetons. By enabling casino staff to quickly and accurately read, authenticate and count their RFID currency items from any location at any time, the Portable Chip Reader extends RFID currency protection from the cage or chip bank to the table, the pit podium or even to back-of-house counting areas.
Utilizing the latest RFID high-frequency technologies, the Portable Chip Reader combines the latest Magellan MARS 24reader with a two-dimensional antenna that can read RFID chips in mass, in stacks or in racks.
Encased in a sleek, portable case that includes a chip-reading surface that can be customized with the casino’s individual logo, the Portable Chip Reader is able to quickly authenticate individual RFID chips and chip stacks that contain up to 20 chips. It can also quickly authenticate up to 200 chips that are still in their trays, and all validation information is displayed on an easy-to-read LCD display that shows both the number of pieces being authenticated and the total value amount.
Additionally, its high-speed reading capabilities make it possible to read up to 400 chips per second while simultaneously identifying whether the chips are authentic, valid casino currency. This makes it possible for casino staff to easily identify and remove foreign, non-casino chips.
The reader is easy to transport throughout the casino, and it has a universal power supply that works with any voltage.
