Cash Control Series Smart Hubs

e2c Cash Control (CC) Series smart hubs are designed to allow integration of complex payment peripherals into any computing platform with a USB interface, utilising iSocket middleware for device management.

CC smart hubs dramatically simplify the integration and management of payment devices. With more than 250 supported payment devices, iSocket Payment Device Manager is the best choice for system integrators.


Machine payments made simple!



To connect payment devices to an embedded computer, we use a USB Smart Device Hub.  This provides all the physical interfaces required, such as CCtalk, MDB and serial.

The devices are controlled by iSocket Payment Device Manager running on the embedded computer. This provides support for all the device protocols such as CCTalk.  The customer application runs on the embedded computer and communicates with iSocket using a simple high-level API.  

No knowledge of device protocols is required!

CC300 Smart Device Hub for Unattended Payment

iSocket middleware provides a powerful layer for device communication and management, supporting all industry standard payment peripherals. With broad OS support for Windows and Linux variants. e2c’s Payment Device Manager (PDM) is built on iSocket and is available in Pro and standard versions. 

CC100 smart device hub supports e2c’s Cashbus interface. This combines CCTalk and  MDB on a single Microfit connector. CC100 is used to provide cash handling (notes and coins) for any type of kiosk or smart vending machine. CC100 is a cut down version of CC200 and is available subject to MOQ’s.

CC200 smart device hub provides a full complement of physical device interfaces for connecting payment peripherals. Combining a fully featured e2c CashBus (CCTalk + MDB M+S) interface with dual serial ports, CC200 is suitable for demanding payment applications of cash and cashless payment.  

e2c CC300 smart device hub is a fully-features device hub combining 4 serial ports with extensive GPIO. CC300 is intended for applications within payment systems where there is a requirements for multiple IO control, such as gaming AWP’s. CC300 includes the main peripheral interfaces of CCtalk and MDB (master only). CCTalk and MDB interfaces are both powered interfaces.

Example payment solution

Application example

This example shows CC200 used in a smart vending application.  The solution includes the following peripherals:

JCM UBA Bill validator using CCtalk

MEI CF7000 series coin changer using MDB (via cashbus interface)

Nayax cashless payment via serial protocol

COM0 is used for DEX interface

Expansion port used to provide IO for vending motors etc

1 wire bus used for security features

System controlled from PC/X86 running iSocket middleware

This example illustrates how it is possible to connect best of breed devices into a solution.

With iSocket being cross platform any X86 or ARM platform can be used as the computing module.
