Upgrade your security and still save time and money

Rising costs and time pressures make it necessary to automate and increase efficiency throughout the cash cycle. Along with the introduction of new services, such as recycling, come new requirements. Reason enough to add another desktop system to the BPS product line: the BPS C4.
The BPS C4 has a broad application spectrum, groundbreaking operation and the latest in sensor technology.

Broad application spectrum:

The system is used around the world and is designed for a wide range of materials – be they paper or polymer, hot off the press, heavily soiled or damaged deposits. From banknotes to casino tickets, the BPS C4 can process everything.

High flexibility:

The BPS C4 is modular and scalable and can therefore adapt perfectly to any processing requirements. It supports different processing modes, including the particularly efficient header card processing and rapid deposit processing variants. Operators can achieve even more flexibility by using the large delivery modules (LDM), which can process up to 500 banknotes. This is an advantage both when filling ATM cashboxes and when collecting unusual denominations and sorting them at the end of processing.

High throughput, low processing costs:

Only one operator and one pass are required for the different sorting procedures. Up to 20 delivery compartments with variable configurations allow a maximum number of processing jobs to be run in parallel at speeds of up to 12 banknotes per second, or 40,000 banknotes per hour. Banknotes can be fed into the singler continuously without any problems.

Groundbreaking operation:

Innovative, intelligent, intuitive – a novel operating concept with touch screen supports the user every step of the way, and in every situation.

Top-level security:

G&D offers an industry-leading standard when it comes to counting and denomination identification, authentication, and fitness inspection by providing two-sided, full-surface banknote scanning. A separate fail-safe compartment guarantees simple jam recovery with correct accounting.

State-of-the-art sensor system

All basic functions, such as denomination identification and authentication, are covered by a sensor block. Depending on requirements, additional sensors can be added, e.g. a dirt/stain sensor for quality sorting or a US dollar sensor for extremely secure identification of US banknotes.

Pioneering design

Hassle- and fatigue-free working thanks to the compact layout of singlers, reject and sorting compartments. With the addition of a height-adjustable table, users can adjust the processing height to suit them.

Perfect integration in cash management systems

The BPS C4 integrates easily into existing management systems via an LAN interface, e.g. cash management systems like the CompassCM or CompassEntréeCM from G&D. This provides an additional boost to efficiency and transparency in the cash center.

Tailored to individual requirements

The BPS C4 adapts to individual customer requirements flexibly and efficiently. The following options and accessories are available:

  • Single-currency adaptation for almost 100 currencies
  • Other currency adaptations for processing up to 5 currencies on the same machine
  • Barcode reader
  • Pneumatic module for vacuum singler, for handling poor-quality banknotes in particular
  • Package solutions for special processes (e.g. header cards)
  • External printer
  • External mouse/keyboard
  • Configurable reporting languages
  • Additional sensor add-ons, e.g. NotaScan Ink
  • Cash center management software, e.g. CompassCM, CompassEntréeCM, Compass VMS, MIS
  • Closed circuit television (CCTV) for displaying the count data in the monitoring image
  • External solutions for destroying banknotes, e.g. BDS banknote destruction systems from G&D
  • External solution for invalidating banknote bundles, e.g. BanknoteCanceller from G&D

    To ensure you get the best possible use out of your BPS C4 in the long term, G&D offers a range of services all over the world: these include professional process consultation for cash centers, practical service and operator training, rapid technical support and tailored maintenance contracts, and system upgrades. The service package can also be specifically supported through the “G&D Remote Service”, which shortens service times further, thereby increasing system efficiency.


    Banknote checking and sorting directly on site

    A multi-functional, high-performance system with the dimensions of a desktop machine

    Well over 10,000 Numeron machines have been put into service in more than 100 countries all over the world during the last few years. The system is used in cash centers and casinos, at bank counters, and in back offices. The Numeron processes a wide range of banknote qualities and substrates (paper, hybrid, polymer) with consistently high quality and efficiency. Its robustness and resultant service life are unmatched, even at speeds of up to 1,200 banknotes per minute – the fastest processing time in its class. The patented opening concept allows unrivalled ease of cleaning, maintenance, and dust removal.

    The system features three output compartments: two sorting stackers and one reject compartment for banknotes that are damaged, unfit, or suspected of being counterfeit. As well as reliable authentication of banknotes with the G&D CashRay 180 sensor, up to 40 different processing modes can be selected using the PMI terminal or flexibly defined.

    Commercial banks, cash-in-transit companies, casinos, and retailers can use the Numeron to ensure that their cash-handling processes are efficient and reliable. The Numeron is flexible in application and can be enhanced by additional components, ensuring a perfect fit with specific customer requirements.

    The Numeron unites the concept of an optimum end-to-end solution for banknote processing with the requirements of our customers, resulting in an extremely economical, space-saving, and flexible system

    Multifunctionality meets Compact design

    G&D is extending its product portfolio and strengthening its range in the tabletop machine segment with the 3+1 stacker Numeron CL. The banknote processing system sorts banknotes according to fitness in one processing step, with up to three sorting classes. As a result, banknotes are sorted quicker than with a system with two output stackers.

    Functionality at a Glance

    The focal point of the Numeron CL is 3-class fitness sorting that allows ATM-fit, fit, and unfit banknotes to be separated in just one step. The Numeron CL can help bank branches and cash centers in particular to efficiently organize their banknote recycling systems. With three delivery stackers and one reject compartment, Numeron CL sorts notes according to three individually configurable criteria, reaching a processing speed of 600 banknotes a minute. Depending on the quality of the banknotes, the system has an input capacity of 400 through 500 banknotes, and an output capacity of 200 banknotes per compartment, in addition to 100 notes in the reject compartment.

    Individually Adaptable and Configurable

    Banknotes are checked and sorted in a single-step procedure, which includes an all-over evaluation of the value and authenticity of the notes, and sorting according to either fitness, denomination, orientation, or issue. If only two sorting criteria are required, two of the three output compartments can be used in tandem to optimize throughput.

    Numeron CL has LAN, USB, and serial interfaces, through which a printer can be connected, for example. Software and adaptation updates and system diagnoses can be performed both on site and remotely.
