I also checked out the coinco booth at the ICA show. I was looking at the BillPro-CRX Card acceptor which attaches on the front of a standard BillPro-CRX bill acceptor so you can accept credit cards. It costs around $150 and it has a metal bezel.
I really liked coinco’s new bill acceptor: the Vantage. This has the coolest features concerning the bill surpressor and others. The red arrows (left picture) show the suppressor in the out position and the (right picture) shows it in the in position. This can be activated when somthing strange is inserted into the changer or it can be set to surpress on every bill accepted and stay in that position until another bill is inserted. There are 3 setting on the suppressor that change the length the suppressor stays back, to help with speed. Also is has a nice feature that when the bill acceptor gets wet, it will not shut down and the next bill inserted will go in and out to dry out the acceptor. Cool. I believe (I did not write it down) that it also can accept 110 different coupons. The coupons are different then the old ones and use a fancy printing process instead of the old way. The blue arrows show the bill box locking hasp, which is an add on; pretty worthless but cool if your maintenance man hates quarters and only steals bills. It also programs easily, but how many time do you really have to do that?
