ATM Maintenance Challenges
With the continuing closure of high street bank branches and the move towards online facilities, having access to ATM’s has become ever more important.
The problem is ensuring the ATM’s remain online and operational. Unfortunately, ATM’s and the network equipment are vulnerable to excess heat and are usually only rated to 60 degrees centigrade. In extreme conditions due to problems with the exhaust fan or without a cooling source these temperatures can easily be breached, and the ATM can fail to work.
During these times of extreme heat, specialist staff must maintain a high frequency attendance at each ATM to monitor temperatures and the status of equipment and take corrective action should problems start occurring.
