The simpliest way to get the change.


The 5-tube Aeterna Change-Giver Coin Mechanism combines the high performances coming from Coges experience and the simplicity of use and operation necessary in such a product. Both in the interface and in the programming menu, Aeterna has been designed for practical, intuitive use, making setup quick and easy.

SPEED: With a newly conceived separator/validator group, the Aeterna change-giver coin mechanism has a recognition rate of up to 2 or 3 coins per second (depending on the coin type).

PRECISION: The use of new technologies for the separator/validator group makes for fast, accurate channelling of the coins into the tubes and highly precise coin recognition. The traditional technology based on electromagnets and shutters has been abandoned in favour of an innovating, adjustable hopper system that directs the coins precisely into the correct channel.

VERSATILITY: Its 5 tubes give greater versatility and longer independent operation when delivering change.

INDEPENDENT OPERATION: Aeterna tubes are exceptionally long: they indeed have greater capacity than other change-giver coin mechanisms currently on the market. The tube group has photocells at two levels for accurate monitoring of the coin levels in the tubes.

INFRARED INTERFACE: The Aeterna change-giver coin mechanism has an integrated IR interface for transmitting accounting data to a palm computer. It is also possibleto connect an external IR PORT module to the coin mechanism, installing it inside the vending machine.

ASSISTED RECHARGING*: When the operator has to recharge coins into the tubes, the Aeterna changes the cash float automatically and the operation is recorded in the accounting data.

* Patented function, it works only with Coges cashless systems connected
