Charlotte, N.C., August 17, 2010 - Source Technologies, manufacturer of innovative, award-winning kiosks, received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Recognition for its latest engineering feat, their most secure kiosk cabinet design ever. The new kiosk cabinet, with cash acceptor transport access door, was recognized to meet UL Standard 291. One requirement of the Standard is a degree of protection against the unauthorized removal of currency; an important measure for any device entrusted to process financial transactions such as bill payments.
“This accomplishment continues Source Technologies long line of UL Listed and / or Recognized transactional kiosks and components. UL 291 is an Automated Teller Systems product safety standard which includes tests for resistance to break-in type attacks, “explained Tom Crabtree, Senior Engineer Compliance.
Available only on the Source Technologies PilotPoint™ 5-Series Plus kiosk, the new cabinet door permits maintenance-type access to the bill validator head only - not to the currency. Access to the cash, accumulated from consumer bill payment deposits, is available strictly through the use of a separate lock. This is a crucial feature when considering maintenance personnel may differ from cash management personnel. Through this new design, cash traceability, auditing and store employee security are all improved. When kiosks with the new design are installed in retail locations, stores improve their overall security.
