Crane Merchandising Systems Launches CORA, Next Generation Telemeter

Crane's CORACrane Merchandising Systems has launched CORA, a telemeter that enriches the Crane cashless portfolio with a custom designed 4G LTE antenna, integrated Bluetooth connectivity and seamless compatibility with all Crane-connected readers and touch screens.

Operators purchasing CORA with Crane Cashless will have the option to enable Bluetooth mobile payment through PayRange with no additional hardware.

CORA features high-powered magnets, simplified cabling and cable-locking connectors that eliminate the need for screws, zip ties and Velcro while a state-of-the-art single 4G LTE antenna exceeds carriers’ performance specifications. CORA is available today on the Verizon network, with AT&T support expected in 2019.

“Cashless installs are much quicker with CORA because of the magnets, cabling and connectors,” said Ricky Norris with Refreshments, Inc. “CORA comes online faster and I’ve noticed a significant improvement in signal strength.”

“CORA was designed with efficiency in mind,” said Patrick Richards, electronic payments product manager for Crane Connectivity Solutions.

“By focusing on reliable connectivity, ease of installation and heightened security features, CORA keeps machines running securely and at peak performance. Additionally, as their business needs change and grow, operators always have the option of including a Crane reader or touchscreen to their device.”

Operators using the simplifiMOBILE app can leverage CORA’s Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) feature to streamline driver and technician interactions with machines.

“Crane recognizes the value of having BLE to enhance device performance and drive operational efficiencies. We are especially pleased to be introducing it to the vending market through CORA and will continue investing in it as we develop more next-generation products,” Richards said.

CORA employs a number of differentiated security enhancements, including tamper-resistant hardware features typically found in secure payment terminals, and both server and device protections.
