Honor Technologies of Maitland, Fla., and Star System Inc. of San Diego, two of the biggest automated teller machine networks, are planning to make a merger announcement Tuesday, industry sources said.

The deal would create by far the largest regional electronic funds transfer network and the first stretching coast-to-coast, with 71,000 ATMs. Together, Honor and Star switched more than 1.3 billion automated teller and point of sale transactions last year.
