Counting Mixed Bills & Bill Discriminators

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Mixed Bill Counter / Currency DiscriminatorI have a lot of customers ask me, “Do bill counters tell the difference between dollar values?” The quick answer is that most bill counters do not distinguish the difference between denominations. There are many reasons for this.

To begin with, creating a coin counter that sorts coins and a bill counter that sorts bills are two different challenges. Coin counters get away with this easily because coins come in different sizes. Bills do not. Building a bill counter that can tell the difference between bill values isn’t cheap.

Most people who use bill counters do not need a machine that sorts bills. Most retail stores, shops and businesses have bills pre-sorted in cash drawers. Most of these businesses simply need to find out how many bills of each denomination there are. This is what most bill counters do. They tell you the total number of bills counted, not the value.

Does a machine exist that can tell the difference between bill values? Yes. These machines are called bill discriminators or mixed bill counters. The Klopp PLUS Banking Systems P-624 is an example of a bill discriminator that we carry.

Standard bill counters, other than distinguishing value, get the job done for most people. Many standard bill counters even include counterfeit detection.

Shinwoo SB1000 Replaced By The PLUS Banking Systems P-624

Friday, December 11th, 2009

The popular Shinwoo SB1000 bill discriminator has been discontinued and replaced by the PLUS Banking Systems P-624 from Klopp. This is pretty important news if you are in the market for a bill discriminator.

Bill discriminators are far less common than a standard bill counter. This is because they not only count bills, but they can distinguish the difference between different denominations. Most bill counters cannot do this. The new PLUS Banking Systems P-624 can count bills and give you the quantity and monetary value of everything counted.

Not only does the PLUS Banking Systems P-624 count bills, but it also has counterfeit detection built in. If the P-624 detects a counterfeit bill, it will quickly let you know. This is a great feature to have as counterfeit money is a problem plaguing many cities throughout the United States. The software on the P-624 can be updated to accommodate future currency changes.

Both the Shinwoo SB1000 and the P-624 are very similar in the way they operate. Time permitting, you should stop by our site and take a look at this new machine. You can find the PLUS Banking Systems P-624 here.
