This cleaning card is essential to the consistent credit card and debit card reads on your POS Terminal. A credit card has oils and dirt on its surface. With every swipe into your credit card reader these contaminates are transferred into the card reader and onto the magnetic heads. This accumulation of dirt and oils is 80% of the reason why these readers fail. Every time a credit card transaction is manually entered the fees for that transaction are increased by as much as 2%. The increase in fees and the time it takes for an employee to enter the number manually are essentially eliminated for a fraction of the cost with regular preventive maintenance. The use of cleaning cards will prolong the life of the reader.

This cleaning card removes dirt and oils from the recessed lenses, transport rollers and belts of bill acceptor devices found in vending machines and change machines. The recessed lenses are the most critical component of the bill acceptor as they tell the unit what the denomination of the bank note is. These areas can become like a trash can and accumulate any dust or debris that comes off essentially dirty money. It is imperative to keep these lenses clean for proper operation. Transport belts and rollers are designed to grip the currency and pull it into the equipment. When dirty they will slip causing one side of the currency to travel faster, therefore jamming the bill in the acceptors pathway.
