New coins no problem with Hazel


The Royal Mint recently confirmed plans to introduce new 5p and 10p coins made from nickel-plated steel instead of the current cupro-nickel alloy. To electronic coin mechanisms they will be an entirely new coin, so recalibration will be necessary. The new coins are scheduled for issue from April 2011.

Hazel Electronics supplies the Mektek Programming system, which enables operators to recalibrate their own coin mechanisms themselves at minimum expense. The software supports over 65 different models of Mars, NRI and Coin Controls mechanisms.
