Carnation CR1 Bank-Grade Bill Counter Review

Carnation CR1 Bank-Grade Bill CounterCounting bills with high rates of speed and accuracy are must-have features in any bill counter, especially when it comes to professional businesses like banks, credit unions, casinos and other businesses that handle large volumes of money on a daily basis. One model that we recently added to our site, and has since become a best seller, is the Carnation CR1 bill counter (found here). I would like to point out a few reasons why this may be a good fit for you.

Carnation has been making bill counters for several years and we have found their product line not only to be solid, but Carnation has an amazing warranty and impeccable reputation. As of this article Carnation offers about seven different models including battery-powered bill counters and mixed denomination counters. The CR1 is one of their flagship models.

The CR1 bill counter is a machine designed to provide you with a total quantity of bills. It will not distinguish the difference in value. If you need not only the total amount of bills, but the value as well, you will need a mixed bill counter (aka currency discriminator) like the Carnation CR3 (found here). This means if you put in 87 bills into the CR1, it will provide you with a total number of 87….not the dollar value. Most people are fine with this as bills are already pre sorted.

The Carnation CR1 is fast, capable of counting bills at speeds of up to 1,000 per minute. The feeder will hold up to 400 new bills, which is a fairly high capacity as most comparable models only hold up to 200. While it works great with USD (US Dollars), it can also be used with Canadian Dollars, Euros, Mexican Pesos and other currencies.

Here is a short video of the CR1 in use:

This particular bill counter will allow for standard counting, adding and batch counting. The adding feature lets you continue to add more and more stacks while the bill counter maintains a running total. The batch feature lets you tell the bill counter to stop after counting a pre-determined quantity. This is excellent for sorting and organizing counted bills.

One thing I personally like about the CR1 is the triple protection counterfeit system. This bill counter will use ultraviolet (UV), magnetic (MG) and infrared (IR) detection to quickly verify the authenticity of bills. This is excellent for real-time verification or simply to ensure the stacks of bills being counted are real. If a counterfeit is detected, the machine will stop and notify the operator.

The CR1 is designed to be used on a daily basis, hence the name bank-grade that the manufacturer tagged onto the name of the machine. It is fast, user-friendly and modern. It is excellent for use out on the sales counter or in the back of the office. It is highly professional and extremely robust.
