Product Overview

•  Copy Vending with Card Value
The TC4N Copier Controller is a proprietary magnetic card reader/encoder that vends copies against value (or an account number) stored on reusable or throwaway magnetic stripe cards.

•  Cards Can Easily Be Revalued
A special Administrator card is used to initially value all cards, revalue reuseable cards, and to set control parameters and prices.

•  Four Copy Type Prices Supported
Depending on copier make and model, and copier control mode selected, individual prices for up to four different image types are supported.

•  Works With HP FIH Enabled Multifunctionals
The TC4N is ideal for use with HP MFPs that have the FIH connector.

•  Vends Copies and Prints on Canon Color MFPs
The TC4N will vend copies and prints on most Canon color (and B&W) MFPs , without need of any special software, or a print release station.

•  Card Value Can Be Automatically Revalued by Account Number
The TC4N can be set up to automatically revalue a range of account cards, on a set date, either by writing a new value, or adding to the card's existing value.

•  Usage and Account Statistics Easily Viewed
Usage and account statistics can be read out on the TC4N's LCD display, or printed out on a P200N or similar portable printer.

•  Small Footprint
The TC4N has a small footprint, measuring only 4" x 3.5" x 7", and weighs a mere 2 lb. An optional stand can be ordered, if desired.
