The Greenwick board for AP (Automated Products) vendors is universal for all 4000, 5000, 6000, and 7000 series vendors. A lot of components are being obsoleted for the repair of these boards. Repair prices are getting up to around 140.00. By having one of these boards just as a spare makes a lot of sense because it is not only brand new but they can put it in any of their AP vendors. It's a lot easier to carry this one board in a repair truck than having 1 each of all the OEM boards required for a service call.
Any customer wanting to take a 5.00 bill absolutely has to think about how they are going to give enough change back. The existing 3 tube coin mech (TRC-6000 type) they are now using stores only one tube each of quarters, nickels, and dimes. There just is not enough change capacity in a 3 tube changer to supply change for a five for very long without the vending company manually refilling the coin tubes all the time.
If they upgrade now with a Greenwick board they are then capable of converting to MDB interface and can use a 5 tube changer such as the MEI 7512 and in the near future the new recycler bill acceptor. Without a doubt they have to go with a MEI 7512 5 tube changer that either has 3 quarter tubes with 1 each of nickel and dime or have dollar tubes and stock dollar coins for change dispense. By getting a new MEI validator they will also have the choice down the road of adding a recycler to it and possibly a credit card reader.
Sure it looks like a lot of money to get a new Greenwick board, 7512 coin mech and VN2000 series validator, about 900 bucks or so, but their other choice is to junk the vendor and buy a new one for 4000 bucks or more. If their now upgraded vendor dies down the road they still have a new bill acceptor and coin mech to put into something else, and the Greenwick board they can use as a spare for other repairs. The money spent is not wasted.
Vending companieshave to be made aware that this will add real value to their used vendors .Higher vending prices result in a need for greater capacity in change making. The Greenwick board is the solution.
