Basic Power Protection Rules for Vending Machines and Kiosk

comments Comments Off on Basic Power Protection Rules for Vending Machines and Kiosk
By , August 18, 2014 2:51 pm

Today I read in Smarttalk’s blog about how knowing some basic power protection rules

for vending machines and kiosk can save you $$$ and headaches.

We have found that you can’s assume to know to much

about your power source and how it can affect your technology on board.



Power – How it can affect your payment systems.

by Vending Marketing Manager on 2014-08-18 in |  
It’s easy… Just plug it in to an outlet and it works. Electricity, or power, has many obvious benefits to our industry. It keeps the soft drinks cold and the coffee or tea hot. It lights the machine to attract consumers and provides the convenience of quenching your thirst or shooing away that afternoon hunger.Power is just as vital for the operation of your payment systems, as well. Many things regarding power can impact the performance of payment systems. So we should all follow a few basic rules when installing the vending machine and the payment systems.First, know the minimum power requirements of your vending machine. Many machines have refrigeration, heating systems, motors, sensors, lights, etc., etc. And that’s without the payment systems. One basic rule of thumb is to have your vending machine plugged into a dedicated line or socket. Doing this will almost always ensure that the power supply, during peak operating times, will not affect the performance of the machine.Second, if the machine is located in an industrial area where high electrical noise or interference could be a problem, you should consider using some type of surge protector/electrical noise filter.

By looking after the power requirements of your machine, you greatly reduce the potential of power causing problems with the payment systems.

Now for the payment systems.

Connections: Make sure connections are correct and secure. A few things to check are to visibly inspect the connectors. If a pin or wire is loose, it could make the connection intermittent. If there is a locking tab on the connector, use it, make sure it is not damaged and inspect that it is secure.

Cables: Inspect all cables for damaged insulation, exposed wires, and if it will rub or interfere with any mechanical operation of the vendor.

Cable Ties: Always have many on hand. You should use these to secure cables in the machine. This minimizes cable interference with mechanical systems and reduces the chance of cable damage when opening and closing the doors of the machine.

And lastly, the topic of hot plugging:

We are reminded to never disconnect or connect payment systems while the machine is powered on. This practice puts great stress on the vending machine controller’s (VMC) power supply. Over time the VMC can be damaged when payment systems are hot plugged. This is because with each hot plug, the stress on the power supply can be accumulative and slowly damage components on the VMC. But, in addition to the VMC, many payments systems can be damaged as well. That’s an additional concern for operators and technicians.

Some machines have power switches and some don’t. If you don’t have a power switch in your machine, you must get creative. Sometimes you can access the main wall plug, so that could be an option. Or you can access a fuse or connector that will disconnect power to the VMC. If you are not sure, contact the vendor manufacture or literature for your options.

The good news on this topic is that all current CPI payment devices are protected against hot plugging through their design. So if the mistake is made, you can rest assured that the CPI Coin Changer, Bill Validator or Cashless System (telemeter and bezel**) will not be damaged. But… let’s all be safe and power down the machine before making or breaking connections.

**Given the sensitivity and complexity of the cashless system, hot plug capability is especially advantageous in that it protects these expensive assets and any mix-ups with installation.

Retail kiosks integrate online, self-service shopping options

Carts Blanche adds wheels to Micro-Stores with VendaMarts – Mobile Automated Retail Store

Demand is growing for the integration of online and self-service stores, according to Corona, Calif.-based AVT Inc., a developer of custom kiosks, vending machines and automated retailing.

AVT’s new Micro-Stores, which will be shipped out in the third quarter, combine kiosks with Internet retail options, the company said in an announcement.

For example, if a kiosk doesn’t have a customer’s preferred color or size, a touchscreen panel provides instant access to online shopping options, where orders can be shipped to the customer’s residence or to a retail location.

Cisco Systems research estimates the Micro-Stores to be a $7 billion revenue venture with return on investment within two years, the announcement said.

According to AVT, the stores have little overhead and provide unlimited access to merchandise, which can be an incentive for entrepreneurs wanting to open new businesses.

“Our customers have been asking for a more advanced micro-store, with integration to online shopping channels,” AVT founder and Chairman Shannon Illingworth said. “Our new automated platform provides business owners and entrepreneurs with the most advanced and effective system in the world, while giving customers the most engaging and comprehensive shopping experience.”

Micro-Stores can be placed in nearly any location, ATV said, such as parks, universities, airports, hotels and stadiums. KioskMarketplace.com  Media/News/Publishing

French baguette-baking and -vending kiosk wins top prize for innovation

July 1, 2014

A baguette vending machine developed by French baker Jean-Louis Hecht has won the top prize in an annual French competition for unique inventions, the Concours Lepine.

Hecht’s Pani Vending machine, which cooks and sells baguettes 24 hours a day, won the competition’s President of the Republic prize.

Hecht, who patented the Pani Vending machine with his brother Jean-Claude, has sold 20 of the machines in France and four in Russia, the French edition of The Huffington Post reports.

The Pani Vending machines charge €1.00 ($0.92) to cook and dispense a pre-baked baguette. Operators can remotely manage their machines using PCs or smartphones.

Within a few months of buying a Pani Vending machine, French baker Yvan Hocquel sold around 11,000 baguettes, which helped him to pay for his €55,000 ($75,070).

Bank kiosks expand ATM services with face-to-face interaction

July 9, 2014

Citizens Bank of Edmond in Edmond, Oklahoma, became the first community branch in the nation to put a face to electronic banking with direct-video links at the ATM, according to an announcement from technology provider Ordermatic.

The  bank teamed up with OrderMatic to develop a video ATM kiosk that allows customers  to have face-to-face interactions with tellers from a remote location.

The kiosks are an expansion of drive-thru technology that is intended to offer more options for customers and more communication between companies and their clients, the company said.

“We are taking our drive-through technology that has successfully worked for six decades, and applying new methods of communication that appeal to a broader consumer base,” said Robert Powell, president and CEO of OrderMatic.

Customers can drive up to an ATM, touch an interactive screen and be automatically connected to a teller.

OrderMatic, based out of Oklahoma City, calls the kiosks See and Speak Interface. The company worked with Citizens Bank to install the machines at six locations.

CEO Jill Castilla of Citizens Bank said, “By adopting new technology, we’ve greatly expanded what an ATM can provide.”
