MEI has introduced a number of enhancements to the Cashflow SC that will define the next generation of a bill acceptor that enjoys an industry-wide reputation for performance and reliability and boasts more than 700,000 units shipped around the world.

Enhancements include: an improved recognition system that uses transmissive sensors to see all the way through notes in multiple wavelengths; faster bill-to-bill speed, expanded memory, which will limit part numbers and submissions by allowing more notes to be recognized in a specific release of firmware; comprehensive barcode recognition; and a USB 2.0 interface, which will speed up communications with the host machine and possibly expand functionality as well.

Because the enhancements are localized to the acceptor head, the next-generation Cashflow can work hand-in-hand with its legacy cousins already in the field, a capability provided by intelligent support tools that will be able to sense the product version and provide the appropriate software.
