  • Slug detect (USA only)
  • Lithium battery with a six (6) year warranty
  • One (1) full year product warranty on the mechanism
  • LED diagnostics (CrossDetect series)

ST-211 Mech The ST-205 CrossDetect™ Series DATA WIZARD to be used with CARD-TRAK, replaces ‘totalizer-style” mechanical coin mechanisms.
