Keep your machines running
A bill jam shuts down your machine, costs you a
service call, and worse, can jeopardize placements
at your hard-won locations. MEI has spared no
effort in virtually eliminating bill jams.
With over 4,000,000 bill validators sold worldwide
and 20 years of advancing technology, the
MEI Series 2000 bill validator uses:
Non-contact sensing, eliminating pinch points
Patented dual-shot tools, assuring no edges
to catch a limp bill
Secure multi-wavelength sensors for
These features increase bill acceptance and
provide the industry’s lowest jam rate, resulting in
happier consumers, fewer service calls, and more
MEI’s current products rely on fully encased, optical
sensors with advanced algorithms to reduce the
acceptance of counterfeit currency and ensure
consistent, high-quality recognition. The VN 2500
bill acceptor’s sensors greatly reduce vulnerability
to both “yank cheating” and invalid bills.
High four-way acceptance rate
Satisfy customers by accepting torn, wrinkled,
faded, damp, dirty, limp, spindled or mutilated
bills. Little or no bill preparation is required and
bills can be fed four ways (in either direction,
face up or down).
The MEI coupon program provides custom and
generic coupons for free vends or dollar-value
vends. This coupon solution uses a unique security
coding process to prevent coupons from crossing
into competing companies’ operations.
The VN 2500’s enclosed sensors are designed
to divert the liquid from “salting” attempts. If
“salted,” the bill acceptor is designed to recover
without the need for a service call—continuing to
operate and satisfy customers. And, the coin resistant
bezel design prevents coins from getting
jammed when inadvertently inserted. Plus, an
optional Armored bezel for protection against
breaking is available.
Easy, time-saving setup
The VN 2500 bill acceptor’s design ensures
convenient access to all switches. Easy-to-read
labels explain switch settings. With the VN 2500,
options can be easily customized on location via
a simple-to-use configuration coupon.
MEI FLASHPORT™ for future flexibility
The VN 2500 accepts $1, $2 and $5 bills in
circulation. Also, the unit’s re-programmable
flash memory enables quick, easy updates of
software files such as new currency designs or

MEI holds one of the world's largest installed bases of unattended payment systems, handling over 2 billion transactions per week in more than 120 countries. The company developed the first electronic coin mechanism in the 1960s, followed by the first electronic non-contact bill validator, and more recently added cashless solutions, vending management software, and bill recycling technology.
MEI’s payment systems technology is considered the most reliable choice in hundreds of real-world applications and has earned the best performance rating in the market. Through its commitment to quality and innovation, MEI continues to provide the highest reliability and state-of-the-art products for the vending, gaming, amusement, transportation, retail and kiosk markets.
In December 2013, MEI joined Crane Co. (NYSE:CR), a multi-billion dollar diversified manufacturer of highly engineered industrial products. As a result, MEI and Crane Payment Solutions came together to form Crane Payment Innovations, or CPI. The former MEI headquarters in Malvern, PA, USA, has become the new headquarters of CPI, with sales offices and manufacturing facilities worldwide.
