The main design objective behind the CM18 was to create an innovative device that would integrate seamlessly into any modern cash teller environment, performing the counting, depositing and dispensing of banknotes in the simplest and most straightforward of manners, while increasing security at the teller position.
The CM18 TCR fits seamlessly under any standard desk and offers the smallest service footprint on the market.
Its capacity can reach a total of up to 4,000 notes in 8 note cassettes.
Several configuration options applicable to the note cassettes ensure that the usage of the TCR is optimised for the required volume of cash. As an example, considering that the volume of banknotes in circulation varies by denomination, the capacity of typical cash recyclers is often compromised as some cassettes will fill up faster than others. The CM18 however offers two solutions to this problem:
- “Virtual cassettes” enable the distribution of one denomination across several recycling modules without impacting the application software
- “Balanced cash handling” enables the even distribution of notes among these modules. This ensures that in the unlikely event of failure of one of the modules, cash operations are unaffected.
Another innovative function of the CM18 is its ability to communicate over multiple channels concurrently – connecting to several systems at once. One communication channel is used internally by the CM18 for interacting with the main Teller Application and is used by the teller operators and their supervisors for the execution of cash transactions. At the same time, interaction with the CM18 on-board application is completely separated from the main Teller Application. For example: specific denominations can be restricted to peak times, directly on the device, without reconfiguring the application.
Unlike other TCRs on the market, the CM18 includes all the connectivity options in the standard configuration, serial, USB and LAN, to allow the system to grow in line with the evolution of your infrastructure. The unit can be shared by two operators.
The CM18 improves security and is ideal for use in open-plan customer zones; it also plays a central role in the branch cash optimisation and control. It is easily integrated in any existing teller application environment via a fully documented and mature Software Development environment.
