Here's the kit you've been waiting for to upgrade your Standard 500/600 series bill changer machine with a popular Mars bill acceptor . This kit is an outgrowth of our successful "Genesis for Rowe" kit which has been on the street for over 12 years.


The Genesis kit replaces Standard’s acceptor, power supply and stacker with a new straightforward control box and free-standing Mars bill acceptor. “Powerfault” errors and “Watchdog” errors  will be a thing on the past.  NO MORE high transport repair costs and  trying to figure out which part is the cause of the problem.


This “Genesis for Standard” uses Mars ‘state-of-the-industry’ bill acceptor: highest security with minimal maintenance. All of the electronic controls split between 2 small control boxes; along with non-resetable counters for ‘dollars in’ and ‘each coin hopper’.


The Genesis kit’s new, heavy stainless steel bracket provides the smallest possible bill acceptor opening exposure to users/ vandals- minimizes possible vandal damage. Industry-leading security against ‘stringing’. Bill acceptor and brackets mount into original bill acceptor opening. NO cutting required.

The above pictures show the increased vandal security offered by the "Genesis kit" over the Standard bezel.


You can replace either Standard 500, 500E, or 600 change units with one of these "Genesis for Standard" kits. Double acceptor machines would require two independent kits to replace all of the original Standard pieces.

Complete "Genesis kit for Standard"; including control boxes, Mars AE2681 bill acceptor, and acceptor mounting brackets is only $1225.00 . Kits may also be sold without acceptor ($795.00), if you already have the proper acceptor.
