Change Machine Buying Guide

Like any search, finding the right solution starts with asking the right questions. Below is our guide with helpful suggestions to help you select the best machine and options for you!


Revenue & Capacity

What revenue will your machine need to handle on a daily, weekly and monthly basis? By answering this question, you identify the volume of business the machine is expected to do, in terms of total amount of money (and bill count). What number of each type of bill do you expect to take in on a daily, weekly and monthly basis? This helps narrow the list to the size and type of bill box your machine will need to have behind the bill acceptor. There are three different brands of bill acceptor corresponding to three different quality gradations: Pyramid, Coinco and Mars, which, respectively are good, better and best. Coinco bill acceptors are included as part of the base package for most of our machines, but, for an upcharge, Mars is considered the best bill acceptor available. How many quarters do you need to dispense? This capacity determines the size and number of coin hoppers required. Coin hoppers store a fixed maximum number of quarters, so the number and type of hoppers in the machine are key to knowing how many coins the machine can store, and therefore, the machine’s coin-dispensing capacity & whether or not the machine will meet the needs of your business and servicing schedule.


Currency Accepted & Dispensed Options

What will your machine need to accept and dispense? For example, if your machine accepts a $20 bill, do you need to dispense only quarters? In this case, you need a Bill to Coin Changer. Do you need to dispense three $5s and 5 $1’s? In this case, you will need a Bill to Bill Changer. Do you need to dispense three $5s and 20 quarters? Then you need a Bill to Bill & Coin Changer. If you need to dispense tokens, you will need to specify the diameter and thickness of the tokens dispensed. If you want to accept credit cards, the only type of coin that can be dispensed is a token. Our changers are not allowed to swipe credit cards and dispense quarters or dollar coins because that makes them act like an ATM, which is not permitted.


Auditing & Communications


Advanced Auditing

For advanced audit, diagnostic reporting and communications, your machine will require the EF+ module. This module allows for the programming of features such as configuration of bill acceptance, security levels for each bill (by denomination), and coin payout levels, which is useful in token operations. This module also displays audit totals of all bills collected and coins dispensed, a last-bill-in log, a help screen for operations questions, enhanced diagnostic reports for service needs, and all other machine settings. An SD card slot allows for fast, easy software updates. Plus, there is an ethernet port which, when connected to a router, can send revenue in, revenue out, error codes and hopper-low alerts to 6 different email addresses for remote monitoring of the changer. This option is ideal for professional route operators and owners who want to keep a closer eye on revenue collecting in general. The EF+ module is needed for the following accessories: MC Series Relay Kit and the Portable Audit Printer Kit.


Simple Auditing

If your business requires only data about revenue in/out, and offline counter is a simpler, less expensive monitoring option. Resettable counters provide owners with an audit of their dollars accepted and/or coins dispensed. The count can be zero-ed out and started over each time the machine is serviced. The non-resettable counters provide a more secure hard audit of the dollars accepted or coins dispensed over time. This is the preferred option for professional route operators and those who wish to keep a strict eye on revenue collection, by keeping a running lifetime total, without the ability for tampering.


Door Locks & Security

Door locks typically come in three different styles, each with different security levels: circular key lock, regular key lock, and T-handle crank lock. Unless specified otherwise, every Standard machine comes with an ACE circular key lock (a circular hole in the lock with a circular key). The circular locks are the least secure types of lock & keys. Medeco is a more secure lock with an “up & down” key similar to traditional car keys. The most secure lock is the crank lock because it is the most difficult to drill out. With crank locks, first remove the lock cylinder and then rotate the crank handle and open the door.


Other Options


Alarm System Kit

This system is designed to sound an audible alarm upon any open door condition. The Alarm Kit can be interfaced with your building security system for added protection of your investment.


Security Plate / Security Door Guard

The door guard is comprised of a heavy-duty steel frame, which is anchored to your cabinet with security bolts. It provides added security by protecting the seams around the door, the T-handle crank lock and the bill acceptor. It can be secured with either padlock or combination locks. Made of 7 gauge steel and finished in silver gray powder-coat paint, to make it work, the appropriate bill acceptor security plate must also be ordered, according to the brand of bill acceptor for your machine.  This feature is available only for the MC100 and MC200 machines. 


Headers & Bases

Headers protect the machine. With a nice tall vending header, there is no way anyone can set a cup of coffee on the top of the machine with a subsequent spill. Additionally, the header allows the total machine to match the industry standard 72" vending machine height. Bases are designed to easily mount or anchor to the floor and/or a wall and designed to be compliant with ADA Disabilities standards.


Surge Protection

Is your power source questionable? Do you suffer from power spikes or sags? If variable power is a characteristic of the machine’s future environment, a surge suppressor is a very good idea. This surge protector will provide maximum protection from electrical damage from lightning strikes or other causes of large power surges.


Temperature Protection

What is the ambient temperature where the machine will be mounted? If it is under 50 degrees, then it is recommended to get a heater strip with thermostat.The 180-Watt Heater Strip is an insulated, thermal heating element that maintains a steady temperature inside your change machine. An internal thermostat automatically activates the heater when the temperature inside the cabinet dips below it's preset level, and continues to maintain an optimal temperature to prevent freezing and condensation in cold weather conditions.


Graphics & Backlit Sign Box (Backlit Sign Box for MC900 models only).

Provide more information for your patrons. Typically, the graphics will state: If you put a $20 in, what will you get out. Examples include: 80 quarters or 80 tokens, 3 bonus tokens, etc.


Miscellaneous

How to Clean a Change Machine

The most common problem is a jammed bill acceptor due to limp, torn, or folded bills. The best way to avoid jams is using newer, ATM quality bills and loading the cassette properly. The second most common problem is dust and dirt. Periodically service your machine with a can of compressed air, a mild cleaner, glass cleaner, and clean rags. Every couple months, we recommend removing the bill cassette and blowing compressed air into the front of the bill acceptor, bill dispenser, coin hopper/dispenser and coin chute. The bill acceptor has a lower track unit that can be removed from the acceptor housing. It also has rollers and belts that move the bill inside the acceptor. About twice a year, take a damp cloth impregnated with liquid hand soap, squeeze it free of the excess liquid, and use it to clean the rollers on the bill track.
