The Diebold 429 offers a solution for financial institutions to better serve people living in areas with limited power. In
The Diebold 429 is equipped with a smart power management system that continuously monitors the total power needed to operate and perform transactions. The system automatically chooses which power source to draw from – either the internal battery or alternating current (AC) power grid – ensuring that the unit does not exceed 100 watts of power usage. To further reduce power consumption from the energy grid, the terminal can use solar power as a third power source.
Additionally, the Diebold 429 features a unique dispenser control technology that works in tandem with the smart power system to enable all of the modules within the ATM to operate with minimal power requirements. For example, the modules in a typical ATM operate at 48 volts of power to dispense notes at a standard rate. With the Diebold 429, all of the modules operate at 24 volts of power while still dispensing notes at the same rate. This design also reduces the need for power cooling fans.
This means that if there were 2 million ATMs in the world with an average energy consumption of 135 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month, switching just 1 million of the world's ATMs to Diebold 429 ATMs would reduce the global ATM energy consumption by more than 1 billion kWh annually. This translates to a reduction of approximately 914,393 metric tons of carbon emissions, which is equivalent to the carbon emissions from more than 100 million gallons of gasoline.
"Offering a variety of power options maximizes terminal uptime and delivers convenience to consumers," said
Development of the world's greenest ATM aligns with Diebold's global environmental commitment to reduce waste, prevent pollution, promote recycling and conserve resources. Among Diebold's sustainability initiatives are complete end-of-life disposal services for ATMs and other products, which ensure all components are discarded in an environmentally sound way. The Diebold 429 has been tested and certified by the
