WEST CHESTER, PA – April 6, 2001 – MEI, the world’s leading supplier of high-performance electronic payment

applications. CashFlow coin acceptors can be easily integrated to any kiosk to enable optimal coin acceptance, reliability
MEI CASHFLOW coin acceptors contain a number of features that make them ideal for unattended kiosk applications,
enabling precise and accurate coin measurement and validation in all environments – even outdoors. These features
- An extra wide “throat” and parallel-opening flight deck virtually eliminate coin jams.
- Intelligent design of coin flight minimizes the effect of dirt or moisture contamination.
- Unique mechanical design
- Intelligent sensing algorithms
- Patented devices to stabilize and direct coin flight
- Upgradable to handle new coin introductions and coin set changes
- Security upgrades can be handled with minimal effort
“CASHFLOW coin acceptors can be adapted to suit most kiosk applications,” said Otto Lohse, retail market
manager of MEI. “The coin acceptor unit is only 4”/100mm, making it the smallest high
performance acceptor available today. In the retail industry where floor space is at a premium,
this coin acceptor is easier to successfully design and integrate.”
