SANTVEND is a modern, newly developed Linux-based vending machine controller. An MDB interface for connecting payment systems, as well as the 3G/4G modem, makes SANTVEND ready for the Internet of Things. Thanks to the powerful graphics unit, High Resolution touchscreen displays can be operated. The proven vending machine controllers in the Garz & Fricke family can be regarded as being state of the art replacements for conventional vending machine controllers. What’s more, in many cases, our controllers represent the only available solution for converting existing vending machines so that they can take advantage of modern payment systems and telemetry, as well as complying with child protection laws.
