Hantle ATMs Promote Compatibility Through Diverse Modules
Hantle, Inc., the company formerly known as Tranax Technologies, Inc., was founded in 1986 and changed its name to Hantle in 2010. Owned and operating as a subsidiary of Eltna Corporation, they design and produce a wide range of ATMs and cash dispensing units, ATM software, and related accessories only available through authorized distributors or service providers.
Some of their most popular models include:

Broadening the aspects of self-service
ATM providers are always looking for ways to elevate aspects of self-service. Attempting to further expand the reach and usability of their machines, Hantle enabled them to dispense quick pick lottery tickets - an upgrade that nearly 50,000 of their machines in the marketplace currently qualify for. Though the program's acceptance will vary from state to state based on participation, the manufacturer remains hopeful that the individual state lottery commissions will allow the program to move forward, according to representatives involved with the development of the platform.
But even without the green light on their lottery platform, Hantle's retail ATMs incorporate a series of modern features that have made them one of the leading ATM providers in the marketplace. One of the most notable is wireless compatibility.
Using high-speed TCP/IP communication, wireless ATM equipment can send transaction data over an Ethernet (CAT5) cable through your internal wireless network. This process not only eliminates the need for a separate phone line, it also provides secure, high-speed transactions via the web-based platform. The Hantle ATM 1700W Series, as well as the models in the other three series currently available, are all compatible with most third-party wireless devices.
Among ATM machine companies, the module could well be considered the heart of any well-functioning product. Providing a range of capacities, performance, and compatibilities, ATM modules extend the function of a simple machine by transforming it into a multinational exchange house.
Hantle currently produces three such modules:
- TCDU - This drawer type module has a cassette capacity of 1,000 notes and is compatible with bills that include U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, and Chinese Yuan. Offering the capability to spit out two notes per second, it's designed with a tray dispenser and uses friction for note pick-up. Weighing about 15 lbs, it measures roughly 10" x 9" x 14" (W-H-D).
- SCDU - Another cassette type module, Hantle's SCDU holds 1,000 new U.S. bank notes and also features a reject bin that will hold up to 200 notes. Compatible currencies include U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, and Chinese Yuan that can be dispensed up to three bills per second. Similar to the TCDU unit, it's designed with a tray dispenser and picks up bills through the use of friction. It also features management add-ons that include near-end detection and note shortage detection. Weighing just over 22 lbs, it measures roughly 10.5" x 11.5" x 17" (W-H-D).
- MCDU - Created from a variety of industry experience and customer feedback, the MCDU module employs the use of cogged belts and rollers to eliminate the chance of note slippage and greatly reduce the potential for breakage. It also uses an advanced system of multiple motors that propel the notes through the bill path and stops the flow of currency when it senses a blockage, simplifying maintenance and service in the event of a problem. Like the other two modules, it's compatible with U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, and Chinese Yuan and can distribute them in speeds up to three notes per second. The MCDU's cassette can house 1,700 new U.S. notes, weighs just over 22 lbs, and measures roughly 10.5" x 11.5" x 17" (W-H-D).
