BNR Advance™

The MEI® BNR Advance (Bank Note Recycler) is a fresh approach to today’s world of cash management. Designed to mimic the accept and dispense ability of a cashier, the BNR Advance automates these actions into a smart recycling process in a more secure environment. The modular design configurations make it ideal for applications in self-checkout, retail payment, financial services, and transport markets.

Paired with a coin recycler, the BNR Advance will provide your business with a reliable, closed loop cash management solution allowing your team to focus more on the customer and less on the cash.

Bulk dispense of up to 15 notes minimizes customer waiting time at the end of a transaction

Audit data is retrieved at the end of the day with all daily funds stored in a single locked cashbox

Increase security protecting cash from the criminal element
