Carnation CR2 Money Counter Review

Carnation CR2 Money CounterFast, effective and accurate are all words that can be used to describe most money counters (found here). You put a stack of bills in the hopper and in seconds the entire stack is counted. At ABC Office we offer a wide variety of money counters from brands such as Intelli-Count, Cassida, Semacon, Magner and others. We recently added a new brand to our site by Carnation and I will be reviewing the Carnation CR2 money counter (found here) in this article.

When it comes to money counting machines, many of them look like clones of each other and there aren’t usually many features that make them unique from each other. We are always looking for new and unique products to add to our site. The Carnation CR2 has many unique features that set it apart from other machines.

To begin with, the Carnation CR2 is an industrial level machine, meaning it can be used with larger organizations such as banks, credit unions and casinos. It features a variable speed control that allows it to operate at speeds ranging from 800-1500 bills a minute. At 1500 bills per minute, this is one of the fastest money counters on the market.

Another feature I really like about the CR2 is the large feeder and carrier. Most money counters feature a feeding hopper that holds around 200 new or 100 used bills. This machine has a feeder with a capacity of 400 new bills, which is pretty large. This means you don’t have to load it as frequently, which results in you getting more done in a shorter period of time.

Over the years the problem of counterfeit bills has continued to grow with the improvements in printing and copying technology. The CR2 is equipped with counterfeit detection capabilities. It uses three different technologies to do this. These are ultraviolet (UV), magnetic (MG) and Infrared (IR). Using these built in counterfeit detection tools, it can scan bills on the fly and quickly determine if they are real or fake. In the event that a counterfeit bill is detected, the CR2 will stop and notify the operator.

The CR2 can also be set up for various counting functions. It can be used to count the bills in a stack, count them and add them to additional stacks and it can be used for batch counting. Batch counting is especially nice for sorting, organizing and storing bills. The feeder can be used to count US currency, but also works with Canadian bills, Euros and currencies from other countries.

Another cool feature of the Carnation CR2 is the control panel. I have used a lot of money counters since working at ABC Office and I can safely say I have never seen one with a touch screen control panel. The CR2 is equipped with a touch screen control that is extremely easy to navigate. Data, such as counted bills, is shown on the left screen.

One thing you should be aware of is that the CR2 does not distinguish the difference between different denominations. This means it will provide you with a total number of bills counted, but not the total value. If you need a bill counter that will count and provide the value, you will need to go with something like the Carnation CR3 mixed bill counter (found here).

In conclusion, the CR2 is one of the most robust machines we offer for higher-end money counting. It features a nice one-year warranty and includes pretty much every feature you could want in a money counter that doesn’t distinguish denominations.
