Turnstar manufactures a versatile cost effective solution for pay-for-entry applications. The Turnstar coin acceptor can be used in conjunction with turnstiles and vehicle barriers, and enables the owner to set the amount for entry. The coin acceptor can be set to any amount, e.g. R1, R2, R5 and even R10, and has an embedded counter which enables the operator to carry out an audit of the takings. Tokens can also be used in the product for customers who do not want to deal with cash at the point of entry.
