NORTH CANTON, Ohio (9/7/11)--ATM manufacturer Diebold has introduced its most robust series of ATMs to date. Diebold is a CUNA Strategic Services provider. Diebold’s Flex Performance Series brings together advanced self-service functionalities such as cash and check deposits, cash dispensing and full recycling. The two ATMs offered within the series, the Opteva 828 lobby ATM and the 868 through-the-wall ATM, can configure the terminal with a recycling module and separate cash dispenser. The combination increases terminal uptime, extends the cash replenishment service cycle and provides a clear upgrade path from basic cash-in and cash-out operation to full recycling. With a cash capacity that is three to four times greater than standard deposit automation ATMs, the Opteva 828 and 868 decrease deposit pulls, reducing the personnel requirements associated with managing and replenishing the ATMs. The Opteva 828 and 868 also provide secure note-handling, including validation of both incoming and outgoing notes, counterfeit note detection and note-fitness checking, cash sorting and denominating. The recycling-ready deposit automation module can be configured in deposit-only, cash-in and cash-out or full-recycling modes. The cash dispensing capacity and note denomination support can be extended with an optional four-cassette cash dispenser.
