BRISTOL, PA -- AMI Entertainment Network (formerly Rowe International) has introduced the latest in its long line of bill changers. The new Rowe Model 400 is extensively customizable, enabling operators to select from a variety of options to meet specific location requirements.
The economical Rowe Model 400 is available with dual hoppers, dual validators, dual bank-note recyclers and a choice of front or rear loading. It can hold as many as 11,200 quarters -- $2,800 -- or similarly sized tokens, and incorporates features previously found only in top-of-the-line Rowe Bill Breaker models. It incorporates a novel user display that disproves a dishonest patron's claim that the machine has not dispensed the correct change.
Opting for two validators provides redundancy that can keep the machine in service if one goes out of service; installing two recyclers effectively makes the new changer a "mini Bill Breaker" that can recycle $1 and/or $5 notes.
Also available are an ePort card reader from USA Technologies that adapts the Model 400 to accommodate all major credit cards and dispense tokens, while retaining a backup bill validator. A network interface option enables the new changer to send audit data and diagnostic information to a remote host. Like all Rowe bill changers, it is backed by comprehensive technical support.
