This intelligent, yet affordable machine counts all world currencies at the extremely fast rate of 1,000 banknotes per minute. This minute includes verification of each and every banknote that passes through the machine with 5-fold counterfeit detection.

One of the main selling points of the NC20i over other machines at this price point is its ability to count single denomination values. This allows the machine to display the value of the amount counted rather than just the number of notes counted. 

Its sorting function allows the NC20i to detect different denominations, along with its batch counting function to allow for easy preparation for cash drawers and bank deposits. On top of all of this, it has excellent counterfeit detection and high speed counting capabilities that are 8 times faster than manual counting, making it one of the best all round banknote counting machines available.
