Has anyone updated your changers (Rowe?) to accept the new $20 bills?

What Rowe do you have. If you are looking for information on the update this is all I have at the moment.
Rowe Bill Changers:
BC 1200, 1400, and 3500 will need a Piggyback Board Kit (Part Number 27030501) with a Suggested List Price of $50.00.
BC-150 will need a Piggyback Board Kit (Part Number 27030502) with a Suggested List Price of $50.00.
BC-12, 35, & 12R will require a Major Component Kit this will change out the majority of the internal components (hence the name) to update the machine to a BC-1200, or 3500. Please call for the prices on these kits.
Note: If during the last bill change you already updated your BC 12, 35 or 12R with the Major Component Kit, you will only need to purchase the Piggyback Board Kit. If you updated your machine during the last bill change with the RBA-7 kit you will have to update with the entire kit, as Rowe will not be engineering an update for the RBA-7 as I will explain below.
Century Series Changer:
If you have a Century Series bill Changer with and RBA-7, or CBA-4 you will have to update your machine with a Coin Co, or a Mars Validator, as these validators will bolt right in to a Century Series Changer. Rowe will not be selling the validators so you will have to find a dealer of either Coin CO or Mars. Yankee Equipment can get Coin Co Validators. You will then have to order different harnesses to go with these new validators. Data Cable is PN: 45108203 and the Power Cable is 45108304
SBC or NSBC Changers:
If you have a SBC or NSBC Rowe Changer please call us for assistance as we have little information on these changers and do not know the exact update procedure.
I have not had to do an actual update as of yet, but have ordered a few boards for the BC 3500 I am hoping this info has not changed, it has been a few weeks since I spoke to Rowe.

Thanks for the information. I have the Rowe BC1200 changers, so I will check into the piggyback board kits.
