Triton® announced the introduction of the RT2000, its first through-the-wall ATM designed specifically for retail locations, at the Annual Triton Conference today in Biloxi, Mississippi. The RT2000 provides an affordable new option for retailers that want an all-weather ATM that is visible and accessible to customers from the sidewalk, lobby, parking area, or mall atrium.
According to Triton President Brian Kett, the RT2000 is a straightforward response to market demand. "Our customers have told us they want low-cost Triton reliability in a through-the-wall ATM that can provide fee-generating transactions around the clock, even when their retail premises are closed," he said, "so we have taken the proven technology that distinguishes our products and made it available in a fully weatherized, through-the-wall ATM."
The RT2000 incorporates the Intel® XScale® processing platform with cost-effective dial-up communications and TCP/IP capabilities, an 80 mm thermal printer presenter, and a multi-lingual customer interface. Standard security features include a Triple DES-compliant EPP (encrypting PIN pad) that meets all existing international security standards. The RT2000 also offers text-to-speech audio transactions for the visually impaired and is fully compliant with all current and proposed ADA requirements.
Customer options for the RT2000 include Triton Waves(TM), a flexible package of revenue-generating functions that include Western Union Money Transfers®, PaySpot(TM) prepaid wireless top-ups, and CashWorks(TM) check cashing. Options include a 6.5" color display and a variety of single and multi-cassette dispensing options including Triton's new TDM-200 and TDM-250 cash dispensers.
The RT2000 will be available with Triton's newest multi-cassette mechanisms, the TDM-200 and TDM-250. Manufactured by Triton to its own exacting specifications, TDM components give the RT2000 an extra dimension of reliability, longevity, and operating efficiency. The TDM-200 offers two 550-note cassettes, while the TDM-250 offers dual 1,300-note cassettes. The TDM's dual cassettes enable operators to offer different bill denominations or currencies. Both units offer a mechanism life of 250,000 notes with no preventive maintenance. Triton's extremely durable, high-capacity dispensing mechanisms reduce the frequency of cash replenishment and service calls, thereby yielding further savings in operating cost.
The RT2000 offers ATM operators the high reliability, simplicity of operation, and low cost of ownership and maintenance that have made Triton ATMs the world's first choice for off-premise retail settings such as convenience stores, hospitality establishments, theaters, and shopping malls.
