Tip & How-To about Retail Supplies

Features found on most bill counting machines

Bill and coin counters come with a host of different functions and features that when you learn and master the them you will be a bill counting ninja! There are many terms that you will hear when getting started with your coin counter but the the most important ones are hopper capacity, error detection, adding mode and batch counting.

The hopper is the part of the bill counter that holds the bills that are going to be counted. Bill counting machines have a limit to how many bills the hopper can hold this is known as the hopper capacity. Usually instructions come with a number for how many new bills the hopper can hold, but if you are going to be counting older and crumpled bills that number will be cut in half. So if the capacity is 100 new bills then the number of old bills with around 50.

when you are counting bills its important to watch for error detection on the machine. These errors can be for a feeding error, detection of fake bills or a problem with the sensors in the machine. Machines with error decors are on the higher end but they make troubleshooting easier as well as give you confidence in their counting.

These last two features can be combined into one key feature that makes counting bills with a machine a breeze. Adding and batch counting modes. In a regular mode on a bill counting machine the counter will reset when you finish counting a stack, but if you enable adding mode the counter will continue to count from where the last stack left off.
Batching on the other hand is good for when you have a huge stack of bills like lets say $5's and you want them to be split into stacks of 10's. You can set the machine to batch count so it will stop counting after 10 bills have passed through. This is really good for if you are stacking bills into increments that are easy to count.

how can we get the counter to know when a different bill is mixed in


We consider the semacon a throw away machine. That being said, the s-1625 is not capable of detecting different bills. It is just a unit counting machine. It does have the option of counterfeit detection using magnetic or UV sensors if you have that version. A true counter that can find the wrong bill in a pack is at least a $3,000 machine and are very nice. Good luck.

C100 Coin Sorter & Counter C-100


Coin sorters have to be able to handle a variety of coins in a variety of conditions. The one intended for home use are not very accurate even when new and sorting accuracy declines with age. The only practical "fix" is to take a technological step backward and sort coins manually.

what is the minimum amount a coin counter can count?


It really doesn't say what is the minimum but i'm not sure there is one. you just put in one coin and it counts it. The speed is what matters in counters. there are fast counters that can count around 150 coins per minute.
