Even though Hexis Change-giver Coin mechanism enjoys considerable operation autonomy, also thanks to its 5 capacious tubes, sometimes it may happen that some tubes empty and it results necessary to recharge them with coins. These are usually the tubes containing the low-denomination coins, which are given more frequently as change to the vending machines’ users.
Normally, to fill the empty tubes with coins the Operator is obliged to calculate accurately how many new coins were inserted and to remove an equal value from another tube containing high-denomination coins. This is often the only way to “move” a certain amount of currency from a tube to another one, by keeping a correct accounting of takings.
This operation, if carried out manually, involves some evident risks of calculation errors and always needs much care and time. To resolve these problems, Hexis includes the optional Assisted Recharge function, which is already present in the other Coges Change-giver Coin mechanisms. Thanks to this function the Operator limits himself to insert an identification key in the cashless Reader connected to the Coin mechanism and to insert all the desired coins in the insertion slot of the vending machine.
The inserted key – a normal MyKey, programmed with section code 96 – will permit the Coin mechanism to recognize the filling operation in progress without confusing it with a sale. The insertion of the coins will be fast thanks to the acceptance rate of Hexis Coin mechanism and when the desired tube will result full, the Coin mechanism will signal it by addressing the surplus coins into the reject channel. The same operation can be carried out at the same time even in more tubes with different denominations.
At this point the operator has only to extract the recognition key from the Reader and Hexis will precisely calculate the value of all the inserted coins, by giving a change in high-denomination coins with the same value: the same operation which was previously carried out by the operator, however in less time and higher reliability. In this way in addition to a correct accounting the presence of coins into the tubes is always guaranteed.
Furthermore, all the recharge operation can occur without the need for opening the vending machine door and for accessing physically to the tube group.
