DA3 SMART Update Tool - Euro €10 version 2.1 released
A new DA3 SMART Update Tool has been released to aid customers to update their validators to accept the €10 note that will enter circulation in September. With the use of a DA3 handheld programmer and a standard SD card all ITL validators can be quickly and simply updated to accept the new €10 note. The DA3 SMART Update Tool for the new €10 note can be downloaded from our website within Technical Support / Software Download where a quick start guide explains the whole procedure.
We recommend updating DA3 firmware and DPS to the latest available version. 
Smart Euro Update with DA3 firmware 1.15.
Improvements / Fixes
  • During a download a small number of units reverted to SSP.  This has now been fixed.
  • Support for NV9USB+ and NV11+ units
  • Support for FSP firmware units and updates
SD Card Update 
   • Addition of new €10 note.
We will shortly be replacing the existing NV9 USB note validator with a new version NV9 USB+. 
The newer models are compatible with all existing protocols and the NV9 USB+ has identical external dimensions so no modifications will be required on any existing machines currently utilising the NV9 USB. 
The NV9 USB+ includes enhanced sensing technology to future proof the unit. The additional sensors will allow further improvements to security, reliability and overall performance moving forward.
Hardware wise the NV9 USB+ is identical to the existing NV9 USB note validator. All new NV9 USB+ models can be identified by a blue product label (rather than the green standard label). More information will follow in future technical bulletins and we envisage that the new NV9 USB+ units will fulfil all sales orders from this Autumn.
