System 500 Bill Acceptors

Standard Change-Makers, Inc. announces that effective April 1, 2015 our Service Department will no longer provide service on the System 500 bill validators.

The System 500 was originally introduced in 1987. It was the first bill validator that accepted $1 through $20 bills. An innovation for many self-serve industries, allowing them to accept $10 and $20 bills had a great impact on their ability to generate additional revenues in the coin laundry, car wash, and amusement businesses. You can identify the System 500 bill acceptor by the BLACK decal that has "SYSTEM 500" and the Standard Change-Makers logo printed on the endcap.

MC Hopper Board

Many of our Modular Series (MC) change machines are sold without the optional Expanded Function (EF) Module. The EF Module has a LCD display that provides detailed Audit reports, Programming options, along with Diagnostics and Error History reports.

Without the optional EF Module, Modular series change machine owners must rely on the Out of Service Light, Bill Acceptor Entry LED (if applicable) and the Status, Power, and Interrupter LED's on the dispenser boards.

A common complaint on older (System 500/600) SC series machines is when the Data Terminal displays “PWR FAULT.” The Power Fault Error indicates that the 5 volt DC line supplied by the internal Power Supply Board had dropped down below a 4.5 DC volt minimum momentarily.
